Caffeinated Randomness – They’re Back…..
Two weeks ago I awoke to great news. We had been anticipating the worse. We had been waiting since the fall for some decision to be made. Plans were canceled. Schedules changed. We survived Saturday nights watching movies and old reruns on Netflix.
But all that changed. Saturday nights are going to back to normal soon. We’ll be able to watch Coaches Corner and see the worst suits ever. We’ll be able to hear about the blue line and goalie crease. We’ll hear words like Battle of Alberta, face off and Lord Stanley.
You guessed it for this Canadian girl – HOCKEY IS BACK!! I know there are arguments about why support the game of overpaid children having a tantrum or rich corporate greedy owners. I really don’t care about it. I just want to see the boys playing. I’ve grown up in a hockey household and have a hockey husband. It has been weird not to hear hockey noises in the background. The cheers when your team is doing well and the angst when they are losing. The stress of when there is 20 seconds left, the goalie pulled and the game is tied.
It’s been very frustrating listening to my football friends talk about their teams and their favourite players and I’ve been silent. I haven’t got to cheer on the boys. I haven’t got to tease my Pastor when his team is defeated by my team. I haven’t got to celebrate cheering for our team while living in enemy territory.
That has all changed. The Boys are BACK!!!!
