Worst Feeling Ever

by Anne

So some might say the worst feeling ever is losing a game, or losing a Championship, but I experienced one of the worst feelings a hockey fan can ever face last night.

I thought there was a game.... and there wasn't.

Short of a team relocating or the loss of a player (RIP Luc Bourdon), that's the worst feeling ever. No hockey. I was so sad.

I slept roughly 3 hours Thursday night and rolled my behind out of bed at about 7 am to drive to my sister's high school where she was taking her students to Darien Lake (amusement park for those non WNYers) for a music festival. It was a lot of fun, but after a very long day walking around a park in flip flops (moron) I was extreeeeemely tired. I went home, my sister and her boyfriend and I ordered some La Nova pizza and I was all set to watch the game when Cory (sister's boyfriend) said "There's no game tonight. It's tomorrow." I wanted to curl up into a ball. I was so sad. All I was thinking about the whole drive home when I was trying to not fall asleep on the highway was cheering on my team of playoff boyfriends, and here I was with nothing but Jack Sparrow's pirate-y embrace.

I suppose you could interpret that as being like watching the Pittsburgh Pirates.... and they play in the same city as the Pittsburgh Penguins.... so it was kind of like watching the game....? There might've been a bird with red wings...? Ok, I'll admit, that's kind of a stretch, even for me.

So Game 4 is tonight. Sad sad sad. Hopefully the Penguins knew about the schedule and they weren't as confused as I was.

I hope by now most of you have seen this, but, if not, enjoy.

ARMY!! :(


  1. Corny hockey commercials just never get old. Army.... I really miss him. I want him on our team. He would bring a nice physical presence!

  2. I can't decide which I would like to see more - Army as a Sabre or Army reunited with Sid. Or how about both of them just come over to Buffalo!

    I can't believe I hadn't seen that commercial until last week - I don't know how I lived without it! haha
