Hockey vs well, everything else

I went to a Chicago Wolves game with my friend Amy this weekend.  The Chicago Wolves are the local AHL (American Hockey League) team.  The AHL isn’t as well-known as the NHL (National Hockey League), which includes teams like the Chicago Blackhawks.  However, it’s still a lot of fun to go to a game – it is hockey, after all!
