I spent a lot of time in the Glenview ice center; My sons both play hockey, it is nice that the people I was with and I don’t have to drive into Chicago for practices & games.
- Most of the time the people I was with and I can stay local & our son’s practices aren’t far from home, but all of us are a hockey family through & through.
My teenagers play all year & the people I was with and I follow the NHL season closely! When the Stantley cup playoffs happen, our family is pressed to the TV screen. All of us consistently make it a point to go in person to support our local team, the Chicago Blackhawks, and the drive into the neighborhood isn’t too bad. It is straight-forward to park, the location is lovely & the game is consistently a good time. I appreciate staying in Glenview & watching at lake apartment to be honest. I prefer that I can wear our PJs, make pretzels or pee on breaks & go to bed when I want. My sons prefer to stay up late however occasionally fall asleep on the couch. It is no big deal. I also prefer having access to quality heating. I crank our gas fireplace & prefer good heating while watching the game. It is heaven. When the people I was with and I are at the practice center for our sons or seeing a professional game, the ice rink obviously isn’t heated. It is chilly cold, the seats are difficult & the people I was with and I are committed to the full game. I usually dehydrate myself so I don’t need to pee in the public restrooms either. It is still great, however I do miss our lake apartment furnace when the people I was with and I go.
