One part of Norwich that I hadn’t even realized I had missed is the hockey games. I used to go to games all the time with friends, especially sophomore year before being too busy as cadre and Covid got in the way. Last weekend I went to the men’s hockey game where we won by a landslide. Even if we're all wearing masks, its still nice to see things starting to feel more normal. We arrived a little late and joined some friends in the students section. I had forgotten how rowdy the section can be with their jeering and taunts (some more appropriate than others). Naturally when the Zamboni got on the ice, the student section was overly supportive of his work. On the seats were small yellow towels which made me happy since I’m definitely a fan of free stuff.
Randomly during the game, I saw that one of my friends from Advanced Camp was live on Instagram, so I joined the live for a few minutes to show that I was at the game. The game was very exciting, so the viewers got to see a few highlights until I left the live since it was far too loud to hear.
