We were seated as soon as we arrived, giving all of us parents chance to warm our chilled bones and giving the players a chance to heat up the Foosball table and do a little off- ice team bonding.
ORDER BY JERSEY NUMBER
We ordered off the menu with separate checks using our player's jersey number. This allowed our players, parents and siblings to sit at different tables. It also cut down on the time waiting to figure out who owes what.
So we all got back to the rink in plenty of time for our second game.
Which ended in another tie. Sigh.
