I confess that I love my hockey team. SO MUCH. But you already knew that.

It’s that time of the week again!  God bless you, Friday!  And this one in particular!!!

Linking up with Aubrey @ High-Heeled Love.

I confess… that I’m absolutely walkin’ on sunshine today!  My Sens pulled out the big win last night in Game 5 over the Montreal Canadiens, and we’re HEADIN’ FOR ROUND 2, BABY!!!!

I confess… there’s nothing quite like the feeling of your team winning.  And making you so so so proud.  God, I love everything about my team!!!

I confess… that I said going into this series that I thought it was going to be fun, and boy, was it ever!  Maybe not so much for Habs fans, but for us?  You don’t get much better than that!  I’m glad it ended quickly in 5 games so that our guys have time to rest before the next round, but I was a little sad to see it come to an end so soon.

I confess… that I don’t know if I’ve ever loved my players or my coach as much as I love these players and this coach.  OK, maybe the 2007 squad that went to the Cup Finals would compete.  And it would be better if we still had Wade.  But other than that?  This is a group that I’m very – VERY – proud of!!

I confess… that I almost didn’t wear my Sens sweater to work today.  And I almost didn’t bring in the little soapstone sculpture of a walrus that my aunt gave to me.  But it was just too awesome to resist.


I confess… that I’m pretty sure it won’t be a cake-walk from here on out.  Chances are quite good that we’ll face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the next round, and I don’t know if we’ve got the scoring talent to beat them.  But with Craig Anderson in nets and the pesky never-say-die attitude of these players here, I think we can at least give them a run for their money!

I confess… I giggled this morning when I thought of Team Walrus vs. Team Penguin!!!!

Have a GREAT weekend, everyone!  And Happy Mother’s Day to all of you beautiful mommas!! :)

You sound like me during college football season. I'm glad your team is winning, and I like the walrus.

Thanks for linking up for Friday Confessional. Have a fabulous weekend.

Hockey keeps coming across my path, I may have to check it out as I'm a big sports nut.

I sooo really want to go to a real live hockey game and you always make me want to go more.
