Getting Our Game on with the Griffins

Lola [right] & myself with Griff this past Saturday

Though Lola had already spent her Friday night at the Griffins game (enjoying $1 beers and hot dogs), she was game for watching the Griffins second game against the Chicago Wolves with me this past Saturday. My family and I are hardcore Red Wings fans and while we try to see several games every season, I figured a Griffins game would be the next best thing and a smaller venue where I could ensure Lola didn't find her way down to meet the players.

This was our most laid back outing yet, and a refreshing change from slipping into evening gowns and high heels. I wore a new See by Chloe top with a Bindya splash scarf I found on sale at Leigh's and a pair of Sold Design Lab jeggings. Lola resisted the urge to wear a showstopping ensemble and stiletto boots for the sake of not tumbling down to our center ice seats. Instead she wore a Pono necklace, BCBG Max Azria top and Sold Design Lab jeggings.

At first intermission we mingled by the Monster tent for some extra energy and met some friendly faces, including Griff who literally swept Lola off her feet. He was a bit of a departure from her previous admirers, but I had a good laugh chasing after him as he carried Lola away.

Waiting for the second period with Maria and Abbi
Despite our over-the-top cheering, the Griffins unfortunately lost their second game (5-3) against the Wolves. Lola still counts the evening as a personal win for her encounter with Griff and claims to have met a couple of eligible Griffins players!
