|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!
HAPPY THING #21:
NHL Hockey and more specifically San Jose Sharks and even MORE specifically No. 19 Joe Thornton!!!
