#atozchallenge/’Z’ is for Zamboni

of course…What a great ending to a fun challenge.  It really was and I learned a couple of things about this game of Hockey that I did not know like I thought the Zamboni was just called that because that’s what it was a Zamboni.  Who knew it was named after it’s inventor.  How cool is that and his legacy will live on and on 🙂  I know the husband always says to me, “Wouldn’t you love to ride on the Zamboni with me during the intermission?”  I always answer the same thing.  “I’d love to ride on the Zamboni with you 😉 ”  We are a couple (in love) of nerds ❤
