It is game #7 of the Stanley Cup. We are the home team. This is my 1st playoff game ever and we are sitting on the glass. We are suppose to take this game handily. Yet I am so nervous. It is so loud, the energy in the building is just so intense. My heart is beating fast and hard. It is hot in the stadium. It is hard for them to keep it cold with all the people in here and the fact that it’s June. They need to keep it cold for a good ice surface. When it gets too warm, the ice starts to break up and get holes in it and that makes it hard to play on a bumpy surface.
It’s time to drop the puck. Everyone stands up and the opera trained voice takes the stage to sing, “The Star Spangled Banner.” Oh say can you see, by the dawn’s early light. What so proudly we hail, at the twilight’s last gleaming. OMG I can’t believe I’m here at the Stanley Cup playoff’s and sitting on the glass. So here we go. Everyone’s nervous. The players are not in the groove yet, they are skating fast and hard. The hits are coming just as fast. Forehand, backhand, off the post. Nobody’s home so they are still scoreless after one.
Who will score first?? I hope we do, I will just relax a little bit and then I’ll have to worry about holding the lead. This is it. This is the entire season. There is no next game. I want to see them hoist the cup. I want to see them shaking hands with the loser team. This is what it is all about. This is great, the winner takes the Cup home. They get their names engraved on the cup. How cool is all of this, and I’m here to witness the whole season in one game.
I’m sorry guys, it is just about playoff time. I think it’s more fun watching them win the Stanley Cup back in 2013 than me telling you about it. So just enjoy it and pretend you are there, woo hoo 🙂
