Happy Spring Break! We went to the beach for a few days last weekend (Perdido Key, FL) for “spring break”. Basically we had 1 rain day, 1 sunny beach day, and then a couple of freezing cold windy days. We visited Pensacola Sunday and ate a late lunch at a place called Hub Stacey’s, which was very cool. It was an interesting mix of people and the food was great! Funny story…. as Jeff was paying the bill, I somehow noticed a guy walking by the restaurant outside that looked familiar. I literally saw his head for like a half a second. I didn’t say anything, and then G asked “IS THAT BRUCE PEARL?” For Auburn fans, you know who Bruce Pearl is. For non Auburn fans, he is the Auburn head basketball coach. Anywho, the kids and I quickly walked outside and watched as he walked across the park. We still weren’t sure if it was him, so all 5 of us jumped in our car and then
stalked tried to find him to see if it was him. We rode around a couple of blocks until we finally found him heading our way, and saw that it was in fact Bruce Pearl! We may or may not have startled him when we jumped out of the car and requested a photo with the kids. He was with his wife and walking their dog, and graciously obliged! College coaches are somewhat famous around these parts, so the kids loved this (and Jeff and I were pretty excited to). Totally random!! Luckily one of our kids had Auburn gear on. Thanks Bruce!!
Our real reason for visiting Pensacola was to attend our first ever ICE HOCKEY GAME! It was SO.MUCH.FUN!! Other than the guy behind us yelling “YOU SUCK RUBIN” the whole time, and people waving real life brooms (the sweeping kind) at the opponents, and the lady who blew confetti all over our section every time the Ice Flyers scored, and the other lady who screamed at the opposing team the whole time.. something about splinters in their behinds, it was SO FUN! I highly recommend attending a game if you have ice hockey in your area. The fans are quite interesting! The players really do slam each other in to the glass too. The Ice Flyers won, and every time they scored the crowd went C-R-A-Z-Y!! As you can see below the kids got in to it too!
Very fun (and fascinating)!!
