Ahem! Where's Joe Thornton?

I tried to make the OLYMPICS hockey work for me. But I simply just could not. You see - Team Canada did not pick my favorite PUCK manager - Joe Thornton - to be on their team. So it has been a long long long time since I have truly ENJOYED a hockey game.

All of that ended LAST NIGHT when NHL Hockey returned to the Bay Area. Oh how I had missed it so! I don't know what it is about hockey that I like so much (aside from JUMBO). I can barely see that puck flying across the ice. . . and the action is flat looking to me. But when the SJ Sharks hit the ice I can hardly contain my YIPS and YAPS.

Molly does not care. She will lay there totally unaware of the greatness before her. She doesn't get it at all. Ah. . . but let a cat cross the fence in the backyard and we will have to endure that high pitched staccato bark for the next 4 hours!

NHL Hockey and more specifically San Jose Sharks and even MORE specifically No. 19 Joe Thornton!!!

Mom was pretty bummed that both Women's and Men's USA hockey didn't win the world. But at least women's got the silver necklace. And yes we agree, we are happy that the SJ Sharks are back. Did you see when Pavs got the hat trick? Super PAWesome!

Lots of licks,
