Toronto Rock 12, San Diego Seals 11, Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, ON

Gord and I are season ticket holders for the Toronto Rock lacrosse team games ... the Rock is a professional lacrosse franchise in the National Lacrosse League (NLL).  This is our sixth year going to the games and our fifth year having seasons tickets.

Tonight the Rock were hosting the San Diego Seals, a new team to the league.  The Rock were leading in the eastern division and the Seals were leading in the western division.

The theme for tonight was Pride Night.

Scotty Newlands sang the American national anthem.

Singing Out, Toronto’s LGBTQ+ and allies community chorus, sang the Canadian national anthem.

Our friend, Trish, was also came to the game.  Her ticket combo include a cool Pride toque.

And the game began ...

Here is the view from our seats ...

When the Rock scored the first goal, Tim and Gillian, season's ticket holders who sit in front of us, were happy.

The red-wigged guys were there.

DJ Sweet Lou provided the tunes during the game.

At the end of the first quarter, the Rock was winning 4 - 2.

The Rock Cheerleaders entertained in the second quarter.

There's Iggy, the Rock mascot!

Iggy was shaking his booty!

At the end of the first half, the Rock were winning 8 - 5.

Iggy is quite a dancer!

The second half began ...

The Rock Cheerleaders entertained again.

At the end of the third quarter, the Rock were winning 11 - 10.

The prize for the 50/50 draw was just over $6,700.

Yet again, we didn't win.

Here we are ...

The attendance at tonight's game was just over 8,000.

Everyone loves Iggy ... and Iggy loves everyone!

Look at those muscles and abs!

The Rock won 12 - 11 ... whoohoo!

Tim and Gillian were happy!

The Rock players shook hands with the Seals players.

Gord and Trish were happy with the win!
