The San Antonio Rampage is the local team of the AHL, a minor league system of the NHL. Affiliated with the St. Louis Blues, the Rampage is always a good time and a bargain when it comes to professional sporting events. Fast moving, hard hitting, and never short on excitement, hockey may not be the biggest sport here in San Antonio, but the AT&T Center comes alive when the Rampage hit the ice.
If you haven’t been to a game, take our advice and go. Hockey is one of those sports that’s best experienced live. Hearing the crushing blow of a player getting pounded into the corners or the crack of the puck against the glass after a slap shot, the level of excitement can’t be replicated on television and hearing about a classic hockey fight from your friends the day after is never the same as seeing it unfold in front of you.
Speaking of fights, there are some that see hockey fights as mindless violence that doesn’t belong in the game. It’s actually an old tradition and comes with a lot of rules and respect. Guys don’t just beat each other up randomly. When you really get into the game you’ll begin to see the careful chess match of player versus player that protects some players while putting others out there to keep the opposing team honest. You don’t get away with a few cheap shots when you think no one is looking.
The Rampage just kicked off their 2018-2019 season and we hope to see you at the game. Go Rampage!
