How I Met Your Mother

Bobby and his boyfriend Jon are taking in more Stars games. We read about their date night with the Stars, but their most recent visit to American Airlines Center was a family affair. Hockey is for everyone, and that includes a loving family, their gay son / grandson, and his special guy.

“So this past Monday night I went to the Stars game with…wait for it…my boyfriend, Jon!  Now if you guys have seen my previous post about my first ever hockey date, then you know this wasn’t anything new.  What was new was that we went to the game with my sister (Diana), her husband (Mike), my nephew (Kyler), my Dad, and my Grandfather.  

Now before everyone starts asking “Why in the hell did that collection of people attended a hockey game with me and my boyfriend,” the back story.

About a month ago my sister called me up and told me that my nephew and his high-school band would be playing after the first period at one of the Stars games…yea I thought that was a little weird too…a high-school band at a hockey game? 

I bought two tickets, one for me and one for Jon.  Now some of you maybe thinking why in the hell did I bring Jon with me when he hasn’t even met my parents?! 

Well luckily, I had already made plans for them to meet Jon a few weeks back.  So about a week and a half ago I took Jon home to meet my family, thankfully they all loved him (why wouldn’t they!!) and it was all clear for us to all go to the game together.

Jon and I get to the game, a little late, because Dallas decided to have a major storm, but we got there none the less.  The game was a complete success…now the 5 previous games had resulted in shame for the Stars, but luckily Jon brings good luck because the Stars kicked ass that night. Highlights of the night:

Jon created his own player nickname, which now I’m of course going to try my hardest to make it catch on.  There is a new player on the team, and who knows how long he will last, but his name is Vernon Fiddler…which led Jon to call him “The Fiddle.”  So spread the word because if fiddler becomes a permanent member of the Stars he now has a new kickass nickname.

Next was seeing my nephew get to walk out onto the ice, playing on his saxophone.  It was pretty cool, especially since he is part of the same high-school band that I was in high-school.  After they were done playing he came up to sit by his favorite uncle (Which would of course be me!)

Lastly (and the best part of the entire night) was being able to sit next to Jon.

During the game it was pretty crowded around us, but we were still able to be affectionate throughout the game. We also managed to steal a few kisses after the game was over on our way back to the car. 

So all in all it was an Amazing night and I can’t wait for more hockey dates in the future!”

We think Bobby and Jon should get season tickets. Please follow him on Twitter @gaystarsfan
