That Wasn't Fun

by Anne

Ok, this isn't fun anymore.

I was afraid this would happen.

When the Ducks scored on their first shot on net, everyone in Buffalo curled up in the fetal position and started repeatedly stabbing their Scott Gomez voodoo dolls in the left lower high ankle.

There are precious few things I hate more than giving up short-handed goals and we've now done it in two of the last three games.

Jaro was a -3?!

Whatever. I feel like I need to take another shower and get the stench of that game off of me.

On top of the grossness of the game there's this weird dude who works at a stand near me and decided to uncomfortably talk to me ALL NIGHT. Not just like making small talk, I mean saying weird things to me about how I'm doing my job as I'm walking past, clearly in a hurry. And he was a little creepy and had ginormous holes in his earlobes I have no idea who this dude is or if he's worked there all season and just decided tonight was the night to try and make a move. This is almost as bad as the guy who rammed a garbage tote into my hip and then started asking me how I was doing that night. What? Where's that dude who offered to fly me to Nova Scotia when I need him?

BUT. The highlight of the evening!

During the second period, an announcement roughly like this one came over the PA system throughout the Arena:

"Michael Callahan please report to the security desk, your wife has gone into labor."


The Canucks were shut out by the Habs so they got two more points. But, on the positive side of things, both the Panthers and the Hurricanes lost in regulation tonight. Thanks Ottawa and Boston!

Also, I got home in time to see the Kings win in the shoot out! However, because the Ducks won tonight over whatever team they were playing, the Kings still remain four points out of eighth place. Boo.

I passed a random Duck warming up tonight and I just looked at their roster and I still have no idea who it was. It might've been Bobby Ryan? Maybe Sheldon Brookbank? Maybe just a random dude in under armour doing some windsprints?

I miss you.
I hope that you come back before the next home game so I won't run the risk of passing you downstairs and crying a little at your Stormtrooper boot


  1. "Michael Callahan please report to the security desk, your wife has gone into labor."

    I heard that announcement but missed the end of it and everyone started cheering and I was like, "What's going on?"

    The highlight of my night was the guy sitting next to me eating a banana.

  2. Haha I can't believe they actually said she was going into labor. A nice story to tell your kid when he/she is older.

  3. If it was Brookbank that you passed, I'm mad at you for not punching him in the face.

    Okay, so I'm lying. I could never be mad at you. But you have to admit, it would've been great if you had accidentally tripped whoever it was.

  4. OK that is funny that they announced that... LMAO!

  5. Funny thing was when the announcement came on I happened to look down at the bench and some of the players were laughing. Well let me tell you I wasn't laughing I was trying to think how hard I would have to throw something so that it would hit some of the players in the head hard.
