3 Days Until Barons Hockey – “Zamboni”

The Zamboni just might be the coolest vehicular apparatus on the planet. Forget the space shuttle or the John Deere vintage tractor – the Zamboni is a giant ice repairer! It’s really a fascinating process when you get down to the nuts and bolts of it all. Blades, hot water, nozzles, sprayers, filters, rotary brush – the Zamboni is unlike any other. Imagine if there were no Zamboni?

Kids and adults would love to take it for a spin, and unfortunately I’ve never done so. Given the chance, I’d take that baby for a ride around the boards or two between periods.

Sponsored by both OG&E and LOVES, the Cox Center Zamboni’s are colorful, useful, and still imagination capturing. This has me thinking a Zamboni themed Christmas ornament might not be a bad idea.
