Waiting for Tonight

4 May

I have to back Dawn up on this one.  What the actual hell is going on, Caps?  Is it asking too much from you (Mike Green) to, um, I don’t know… PLAY at all during the 3rd period?  I know BB put you in time out.  He probably sent you to bed hungry.  And I’m sorry – I’ll give you a big hug.  But come on.  PS: Stop hitting Brooks in the face.

Holding on for dear life.

And Nicklas Backstrom, don’t think that Swedish helmet hair excuses you.  You may be Piglet to our Winnie the Pooh, but you gave up that puck like last night was prom and you couldn’t wait to get your dress off.

Sorry boys, but I’m mad.  Against all common sense and loyalty, you made me like you.  With your bromances and your Vespas and your This-or-That videos and talking about Diet Coke all the time.  With your Haagen-Dazs loving coach and your baby goalies.  I went to your games.  I moved to your city for %&@$’s sake!

I love trouble.

All season I’ve felt traitorous.  Blame 24/7.  Crosby’s sending bitchy texts about losing focus and the ratio of Mike Green-to-Kris Letang blog posts.  But it’s okay because you’re not in the Pens division.  And now they’re golfing while you still have a chance.

Don't get mad, get even.

So it’s your turn to do something for me.  I’ve admitted how I feel about you.  This is the part where you tell the world you love me back, even if we’re star-crossed and odds are against us.  You sing “Can’t Keep My Eyes Off of You” to the whole school at lunch.  You give me your Bobby Hull game sweater for Christmas.  We can have one playoff run where anything is possible.  Here’s your one chance, Fancy.  Don’t let me down.

    My takeaway from this is that Mike Green might have been born plain whit trash, but Fancy is his name…?

    OMG. This is the best post I’ve ever seen. Seriously, linking to “Fancy”? I remember watching that video on CMT when it came out in 1991, when I was 8 years old. I can’t stop laughing.

    I’m with you – I love the Penguins and the Hawks, but damn 24/7 has made me love the Caps – and now they’re totally blowing it. I’m scared of what BB will do to the boys when they lose. Because at this point, there’s no hope. After picking the Hawks, Pens, Ducks, Red Wings and Canadiens to win, I have no faith in my hockey choices. Have a great summer golfing, boys.

    Oh man how much do I love that pic of all three boys. Well, mostly cause of the one in the middle 😀 but you guys already knew that, right?

    Awesome post!
