Japka’s go to the Shark Tank

Jess and Angie at the Shark Tank

Last night we went to San Jose to the HP Pavilion (Shark Tank) to see the Stars vs. Sharks. We love going to any hockey game and when Steve Homan offered us three tickets we were on our way (thanks Steve). And let be known we’re avid Dallas Stars fans which Steve is fully aware of.

It was an adventure getting to San Jose due to the terrible weather we’re having in Modesto. A hard rain pelted us all the way to the San Jose. Then if you include the Friday night holiday traffic it made for a brutal 2 hour and forty five minute drive. But we made it with 15 minutes to spare before the Anthem was played.

The game it’s self was one of the most exciting hockey games I’ve seen in a long time. Tonight’s game was more physical than typical Stars games (bad blood is brewing), lots or action and overtime at 2-2. The OT ended in a tie which meant a shootout to determine the winner. This is the first time we’ve ever saw a shoot out. Very exiting! I think it took eight shots before the Stars came out victorious.

The drive back was uneventful since most of the rain was over by then. At the end of the night Jessica was tucked in by 1:00am. A good time was had by all. Thanks again Steve Homan.
