A phone call this morning to my homie Spaz.I called Spaz this morning, she did not greet me with a "hello"..........
Spaz: 34 seconds.
Spaz: 34 fucking seconds.
Me: Yeah, I know.
She made it only 10 min into the second over time death. I watched util the bitter end of the 3rd period over time death. I would of whined that I ended up going to bed late because of watching it but then I remembered that she's 3 hours ahead of me. So she didn't get to bed until 1am. We are both amazed at the strength and determination of hockey players. Malkin (Pens) got hit in the face with a puck only to come back and keep playing. They jammed cotton in his nose and got the bleeding to stop and out he went. He's lucky he didn't get hit in the eye, it was real close. Another Pen's player has a concusion I'm sure. He hit the boards with his head and was really dazed. He too kept plugging on even though I'm sure he didn't know his own name at the moment.
My all time favorite story though is S.Avery from the NY Rangers. In the race for the play offs he played an entire game with a ruptured spleen after getting hit with a puck.
So now it looks like my ass will be planted on the couch again tomorrow night and my neighbors get another round of learning how to swear in English.
