Ah, beautiful Friday! How I love thee!!
Kickin’ off the weekend with a few confessions…
I confess… that I was a little nervous going into last night’s Sens game. We only needed to win one of our final three games to guarantee us a spot in the playoffs (or a loss by the Winnipeg Jets last night), but I was worried that we wouldn’t get it done.
I confess… that while the Jets loss to the Habs would’ve done the trick anyways, I was proud of my boys for making sure of it on their own terms!! Woo Hoo!!
I confess… that the boys put a smile on my face with their OT victory over the Washington Capitals, but I don’t think our work is done. I really don’t want to play the Pittsburgh Penguins, and I don’t think our chances are good against Boston either… we need to jockey for position now, and at least one more win – tomorrow against Philly – would really help!
I confess… that with the playoffs on the horizon, you guys better prepare. I’m pretty sure there will be more hockey posts in the near future!
I confess… that I kind of adore Erik Karlsson. I know many of you don’t follow hockey, but remember my post from about 10 weeks ago when I was bemoaning the fact that Karlsson was taken from our line-up due to a sliced Achilles tendon? The optimists were saying it would be at least four months before he could even think about hockey again. Fingers were crossed that he would be able to join the team at Training Camp next fall. The fact that EK65 was back in the line-up last night – and recorded assists on both Ottawa goals – is a true testament to his character, his desire to play, and his desire to win. This guy? This guy is amazeballs. He makes me SO excited for the future of this team!
I confess… that Wade Redden will always be my main man. But Erik Karlsson? He’s officially my main defenceman.
I confess… that I stayed up last night checking Twitter, waiting for our captain Daniel Alfredsson’s inaugural tweet. Part of the Sens buzz yesterday was that Alfie was joining the Twitterverse, and we all were waiting to see what his first tweet would be. Post-game, it finally went up around 10:45 PM, and he started with: “It’s a beautiful day!” (Alfie’s goal song at home game’s is the U2 song of the same name)… How perfect :) PRAISE ALFIE!!!
I confess…that I’m pretty sure I’m going to start watching Prison Break all over again. I don’t think I can move on with my life (or with Jax) until I do.
I confess… the tune that’s blasting in my car a lot this week is the new Avril. “Here’s to Never Growing Up”. Love it.
I confess… that I’m SO looking forward to our Canada Day Committee’s annual Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament tomorrow! I can’t remember the last time I played poker, so I’m pretty sure I won’t last long, but I’m just excited to play!!
I confess… that I’m feeling so good these days that I can’t seem to keep the grin from my face. I know from experience that the good days have to be balanced out with bad days, and so I need to just soak up the awesome, buoyant feeling while I can!!
Happy Friday, dudes… Have a GREAT weekend :)
