If a lifetime can be likened to a day, then this is Happy Hour!
Sorry, Buck. It sucks when your team loses.I know.But, at least y'all didn't get skunked!Plus, like my beloved Granddaddy used to say, "If we don't let 'em win every once in a while, they'll quit playing us."
But, at least y'all didn't get skunked!Yeah, there's that. But it's pretty hard to take, given we won The Cup four years ago and went to the Finals the next year. Championships are cyclical and we're on a down-swing.(sigh)
Down swing? What's tha - oh, nevermind. I imagine it's something like going from 11 straight division titles to missing the playoffs 3 years out of four. Something tells me your Wings aren't there yet. But if they don't keep drafting 4th round Datsyuks and 6th round Zetterbergs, things could start getting pretty average around Hockeytown. What's the fan's take on Lidstrom? One more year?
Lidstrom? The usual... everyone HOPES he'll come back for one more year; no one really knows except for TPH himself, and mebbe even he doesn't know. Babcock went on the record last night saying he's "too good to quit" and Lidstrom said he was going to wait a few weeks before making a decision. Me? "One more year!"
I was kinda hoping for the Sharks to have another opportunity to be the nemesis (in other words I was pulling for your [and my B-I-L's] team.
I would have enjoyed a re-match. If'n we'd WON. ;-)
Just be polite... that's all I ask.
