It’s A Skate To The Throat Kind of Sunday

I’ve never tried to hide what Game 7s do to me.  They make me a wreck, nothing but a shadow of the calm, composed, well adjusted adult I am on most other days.

For fans of other teams, with expectations much lower than ours?  A Game 7 can mean opportunity, a new way of life even.  If they win, oh the rapture. 

Us? All we imagine is horror.

So let’s avoid that shall we?

Let’s go ahead and press down.  Slice the mother through and through.  Skate to the throat.  Press down for the sake of domestic animals from Michigan to Malibu. 

13 to 12. 

9 until Redemption begins.

Erm, if you want a peaty malt that tastes like an Islay malt, why not just drink an Islay malt?  You can’t say Laphroaig doesn’t bring the peat.  Or do you have an aversion to the saltiness of the Islay malts?

Money, of which I am almost out of.

Aaaand the LGRW chants start early.  Welcome to Hockeytown West, bitches.  I guess if I were a Yotes fan (shudder) I’d be pretty bitter about it too.

Money, of which I am almost out of.

Yeesh.  I’ll be up in Helensburgh August bank holiday with my parents, in-laws, and wife.  Look me up and I’ll buy you a few drams of the finest expensives.
