Ascent Hockey Night '11
Created by Tyler Gahagan on 03/31/2011 05:00 pm
Ascent Builders had our third annual hockey night with the Stockton Thunder last Friday night. The evening started at the fine dining establishment, Mr. D's Pizza, for some delicious pizza and drinks. After our stomachs were full, we all walked over to the Arena for the game.
The game recap goes something like this:
Stockton got themselves in early penalty trouble with a 5 on 3 power play that the Salmon Kings capitalized on with a couple in the net. After that, everything seemed to swing back in the Thunder's favor with a couple of fights and five uncontested goals, making the count 5-2 in the Thunder's favor. Unfortunately, the Salmon Kings rallied and came back. The score was tied 6-6 at the end of regulation. The 4 on 4, sudden death overtime didn't yield a victor, so it went to a shootout. That's when the goalies finally decided to show up to the game stoning players in four rounds before the Salmon Kings ended the game on a wrist shot to the blocker side of the Thunder's goalie in the bottom of the fifth round.
If I remember correctly, the second annual Ascent hockey night ended on a buzzer beating goal to quiet the thunder. Needless to say, next year I'll be placing a bet on the other team as we seem to be a jinx for Stockton.
All in all, it was a great night.
The Oakland A's might be the better team in the Bay this year...

It's TRUE. For those of you few true Giants fans and the many, many jump on the bandwagoners; keep your eye out for the team across the Bay. The Oakland A's are poised to steal the thunder from the Giants this season. I would like to cite a recent article from the Sacramento Bee
Unless the Giants regain their hops and their health, they might not even be the best baseball team in the Bay Area. Don't laugh. Could happen. That's what the team in Oakland is quietly pitching, by the way.
That being said. Go A's...
Dropping in on Williams+Paddon

What a blast !!! The latest stop on our dine and dash tour was at the Roseville offices of Williams+Paddon where we enjoyed sushi, adult beverages and the chance to visit with a fun group of people.
It was a great time from the word go, as some people met for the first time while others caught up with folks they've known for more than a decade. If you were a fly on the wall you would have heard about everything from Packer football and March Madness to muscle car engines and Lady Gaga tickets. Sure, there was some shop talk thrown in here and there but this was all about ending a Wednesday afternoon with nothing but smiles and laughter.
Thanks to everyone at W+P for letting us come in out of the rain and for making us feel so welcome.
