Oilers Ford Family Experience

My Cousin Courtney's husband, Darrell, manages Team Ford here in Edmonton.  He gave 4 tickets to last Friday's Oiler game to Steve and told us to have a good time.  Little did we know that the tickets were for a Ford Family experience at the game that included a tour of Rexall before the game, sitting in the penalty box during the warm-up, Oiler dollars and 4 gold tickets with club access.  What a great night.  Uncle Jeff and Keith joined us for a true Family experience.  It was so cool and it didn't hurt that the Oilers played one of their best games of the year!  Here are some pictures from our experience.

And we even ended up on TV.  This is a pic of the 4 of us on Sportsnet at the end of the game.

Another big thank you to Darrell.  It was an awesome night!
