Lately it has been a little doom and gloom around here. And with some good reason, I’ll agree.
First, the Pens lose and Pants was very sad, yet hopeful that Mikey and the boys can ease her pain.
Then, the Mikey and said boys get swept up like dust bunnies by Steve Stamkos, “Father Time” Dwayne Roloson, Squishy and the rest of the Tampa Bay Lightning. Pants is inconsolable. And Dawn is even worse. They just lay face down on the floor, surrounded by Whatchamacallit wrappers and empty bottles of Mexican Coca-Cola. And Dawn refuses to change out of her Ovechkin sweatpants. It is sort of depressing.
But I totes get their pain. I’ve felt it deep down countless times – Patriots’ loss in the Super Bowl, US losing to Ghana in the 2010 World Cup, the Bruins losing to Phi….ermmm….nevermind.
But Pants, Dawn, and all sad pandas out there, it’s time to cheer up! Hockey ain’t over!
There is still plenty more hockey to watch and plenty of teams to cheer for. I recommend cheering for the Sharks, the Predators (and Shea Weber’s beard), and the Bruins (natch).
Every Bruins fan in the world is in a very precarious spot right now. We hope and pray that the Bruins can close out their sweep of the Flyers on Friday, but the hurt of last year still burns deep in our souls. The statistically probability of that happening again this year are impossible (right?). Remember lightning doesn’t strike twice. At least not when Timmy the Tank is in net.
Everyone knows that goaltending wins Cups (Stanley’s, not Hogwarts’) and with the way that Thomas has been playing, as a Bruins fan it is not hard to dream about what a parade down Tremont Street would look like…
But I’m getting ahead of myself…
There is still one more game to play, but like the Black Eyes Peas said…
I got a feeling.Tags: Boston Bruins, San Jose Sharks, Steve Stamkos, tampa bay lightning, tim thomas
