On January 11, 2015, my son and I took in a Gwinnett Gladiators hockey game at the Arena at Gwinnett Center. The Gladiators played the Fort Wayne, Indiana Komets. We watched a suspenseful game, including a goal being scored by the Gladiators seconds before the end of first period, the Gladiators getting down by the Komets by two or three goals in the second period, and the Komets ultimately walking away with the win by one goal in the end, 4-3.
We try to attend at least one hockey game per year, played by the Gwinnett Gladiators. In two past years, my son has earned free tickets to attend two games accompanied by an adult, due to his excellent grades in school. The dentists that care for the hockey players’ teeth have sponsored those tickets, and the games have always been enjoyable to attend.
Attending a Gwinnett Gladiators game is affordable, even without getting free tickets. Though ticket prices have risen by a couple of dollars per ticket since last year, I do my best to make time to take my son to at least one game per year. Having spent most of my life in Buffalo, the Buffalo Sabres are one of my all-time favorite sports teams. Having lived in Georgia for the past 15 years, it is nice to be able to take my son to sports games of any type (especially hockey) in my local area that are fun to watch and affordable!
