Celebrate Local Olympian at Downtown Arenas
As the 2014 Winter Olympic Games is held this month in Sochi, Russia, we celebrate the athletes and events plus recognize ties to the games right here in Indiana. One highly appropriate way is to take in one or more Indiana Ice home hockey games this month as they take on rivals at 7:05 p.m. on February 8 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, and on February 14, 15, 22 and 28 at the Pan Am Pavilion in Indianapolis where former team member and current Washington Capitals defenseman John Carlson, who is part of the U.S. Men’s Olympic Hockey Team, got his start. Also, see Indiana Ice play the Team USA under-17 team at 3:05 p.m. on February 23 at Pan Am Pavilion.
The downtown Pan Am Pavilion facility also holds public skating hours for those wanting to skate on the same ice that this outstanding hometown athlete exhibited his skills toward representing us in the Olympics.
Natural Awakenings would like to wish a heartfelt “good luck” to John Carlson and all of our USA Olympians.
