First off, let me start off by thanking the weather gods for all the sunshine. I was starting to forget what it looked like. It's amazing what good weather can do to lift your spirits. Doctors and anti-depressant prescribers should not underestimate the power of the sun. After such a gloomy week (school, lack of sleep, cleaning, rain) a few days ofsun was just what the doctor ordered. Not to mention that we started to take down our Christmas tree today- another sad affair. I don't know, I guess it's hard coming to terms with the fact that the holidays are actually over... But what can you do? Not stay in the past, but look ahead, I guess.
So. Today's the Canucks vs. Penguins game. The long awaited one that I really wish I had tickets to. I've only been to one hockey game in my life (the Capitals vs. Canucks one in December) and I would love to go to more. Then again, hockey's a new passion. I used to find it boring, up until I discovered hockey players. ;) O'Brien. Crosby. Ovechkin. Linden and Naslund, when they still played. And on it goes.
Back to this game, however, I don't even know who I'm rooting for. I'm torn between my undying love for Sid the Kid and my patriotic pride that doesn't allow me to cheer for anyone but Vancouver. The ultimate solution would be if both Sidney Crosby and Ovie came to play for the Canucks next year. Hah. Like that would EVER happen. Besides, the whole thing that draws people to Crosby and Ovechkin is that they're rivals. Like Lemieux and Gretzky. Bird and Johnson. Great players that cannot share the glory. Sports just isn't the same without them.
Cutie and Hottie.
Anyways, even if I will not be able to get into GM place without getting into some serious trouble with the police, I will be in the city on account of some people that I need to visit, so I'll probably experience the craziness before and after the game first hand. It's going to be an exciting night for sports, Canada. We'll see how it all goes. Which team's your money on?
P.S. Which sounds better Veronika Crosby or Veronika Ovechkina?
