The Kings’ win over the Blackhawks last night ended hopes for a Stanley Cup Final I would actually care about. While Sad Kaner Face is something I cannot handle today, I will admit that this is brilliant:
We all know that I hate the Rangers, but I am surprised to admit that I don’t hate them enough to hope they lose this series. It could be because I do not care about the Kings at all. Perhaps it’s residual emotional instability from being so dedicated to my own hockey team all year – when they are out, it’s like I’m freeeeeeeeeeeeeee for the summer. If other people want to voluntarily stay in school, rock on.
So, who to root for in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final? My answer is no one. A great many of my friends are Rangers fans – and a few people I’ve known for 19 years who’ve never said jack about hockey suddenly became Rangers fans in the past week. They must’ve just missed out on 1994. There will be no scrolling through the Facebook timeline for me, but I wish those die-hard Rangers fans luck. (For your own good, not your team’s, and really we need to talk about your life choices.)
On the Kings side, we also have a few resident fans. Best of luck to you, too. It’s possible my Rangersrage will surface and I’ll be cheering LA to victory – but they won’t succeed, not if I’m on board. You’re better off if I stay out here sunbathing in the yard.
I may watch a game to two, and I’ll almost definitely probably watch the Cup be awarded because it’s not the Cup’s fault I find this Final boring as crap. This will be the year I don’t cry though. Go on and try me.
Are you guys in or out on this Final? Freedom or four more wins required? We should get some of you to write about it, because unless Chuck is watching Rick Nash, it’s time to break into all the posting material we save for summer.
