Battle of the Blog: Holding Our Breath

22 Apr

Chuck and I are not talking about the Bruins/Caps series.  At all.

It’s actually working out, as we restrict ourselves to screaming at televisions and telling our problems to bartenders, strangers and anyone unlucky enough to gchat us.  I have discovered a hatred for the Bruins that I never knew existed, and I can only assume she feels the same about the Capitals.  Good thing we don’t have to care about each others’ teams like this in the regular season.

I’m on vacation in Florida and by the third period of yesterday’s game, my entire family was inside yelling at the TV.  Even my mom, who asked, ‘What inning is it?”, declared that Holtby was playing really well and she enjoys all the hugging.  I think she and Joel Ward would get along famously (seriously, in this photo gallery he is hugging everyone).

Yesterday’s game gave me fits, because at times it looked like the Caps of January and February – blown lead, spotty defense, a llama in ice skates where Ovechkin should be.  But they held on hard and got the late lead with this bullet:

Brouwer scores, assist from iCarly, and we call an ambulance to check on Gator.

So here we stand.  The Capitals are up 3-2 with the chance to clinch today in DC.  I’d be there if I could, but instead I’ll be at the pool bar, Backstrom shirt over my bathing suit, enjoying the discount beer refills and trying to keep my four-letter words to a minimum.  Not too bad, right?  Now I just hope I have to find someone to hug.

    The Bruins better win, for the sake of my health. Any other year I would just be pissed if they lost, if they lose today my heart will shatter.

    I agree with Kristen!!!
    Also, the line “a llama in ice skates where Ovechkin should be”…dying of laughter, mainly because it’s true. But I rather see the llama.
    All I know, is that if the Bruins DO lose (which dear God I pray they don’t) then the Kings better win!I need one of my teams in there!

    Will be extra loud for you and Gator today, rocking the red! GO CAPS.

    It’s true. We aren’t speaking at all about this series. Our friendship is too important to us and we’d like to keep it intact.

    It is also true that I have so much hatred for the Capitals right now. Lots of rage.

    My stomach is already in knots about this game….
