Heading to St. Catharines with Rogers Hometown Hockey! #HometownHockey
02 Dec 2014

On Saturday, December 13th, Rogers is taking me to St. Catharines for a Hometown Hockey experience. I’ll be staying in St. Catharines until late Sunday evening. To capture all the exciting moments of all the fun they have planned, Rogers has outfitted me with an iPhone 6 and a Samsung Galaxy Tab. Woot woot!

I’ve already been using the iPhone 6, and let me tell you, it is so much nicer than my iPhone 5. I’m still getting used to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, but so far, I am liking the crystal clear screen, and the Android operating system.
