Click here to watch the video! I'm such a sucker for crap like this! Baseball has been making me cry a lot lately.
So instead of the Sox, I put on the pink hat and watched the Bruins in Game 1 of their series with the NY Rangers. Yes, I said "pink hat." I like hockey but I don't watch enough of it to call myself a true fan. Sure, I can name a lot of the players and know that Tuukka is spelled with two u's and two k's. And I know I like to say "Tuukka." I also know that Jaromir Jagr is a puck-hogging has-been that needs to call it a friggin' day and retire already.
Hockey is stressful to watch, dammit. I'm not sure there are many sports that get my anxiety level as high as hockey. And if it goes into sudden death overtime, I really have a hard time handling that pressure. (It's almost like I'm on the ice... but I'm not, I'm on my couch.) It's so final—the next goal wins. I'm not sure how the players deal with that stress.
Don't worry, the Bruins won. But they took long enough to do it—over 15 minutes were played in sudden death. My heart can't take that kind of stress. Did you miss the winning goal? Maybe you had to get up early for work this morning. (Sissy.) Here it is...
Seriously. I'm in need of a nice easy Bruins win—next time, ok? Congrats B's!
