I love ice hockey. I’ve played the sport for over 13 years, and of course I enjoy watching the pro teams play too.
The Allen Americans are part of the Central Hockey League, which is two levels below the NHL. Their home arena is the Allen Event Center. If you’ve never been to a professional hockey game before but wanted to check it out, the Allen Americans are a fun and affordable way to do so. Tickets aren’t as expensive as going to a Dallas Stars game, and the arena isn’t as large as the American Airlines Center. You can buy tickets online at Ticketmaster.
AK and I have been to a few of the Americans’ games and they are always entertaining. There’s typical sports arena food, beer & soft drinks, passionate fans, and occasionally a fight will break out on the ice. What’s not to love?
We went to one of the final home games of the regular season. Sadly, the Americans lost to the Denver Cutthroats, 3-2, but turned around and defeated them the following night, 6-1. Currently, the Americans are playing the Brampton Beast in the first round of the CHL playoffs and are leading in the best of 7 game series, 2-0.
Let’s go RED!!!
