Okay, so maybe the Gulls didn't beat Phoenix. But the game was exciting and fun, anyway. Our resident Canadian, Donna, was on hand to explain the game to everyone. Brit AJ was completely confused about the game, until I told him to just think of it as "soccer with weapons." Then it all made sense. We were all hockey novices, but we made up for our lack of knowledge with passion and energy. We cheered and yelled and clapped, but to no avail. The Gulls lost to Phoenix, 3-2. Better luck next time, right?
