I’m going to have to make a confession here!
I’ve tried to escape this over and over again because of decisions that were made by higher management of the team that annoyed me. BUT, every year the playoffs come around and everyone is hyped up, I can’t help but tune into the games and hope that they win. For the last 2-3 seasons, they’ve been disappointing to say the very least. Even if, to this very day, they still haven’t right the wrong in my opinion.
On Friday night, curiosity took over the best of me and I watched the 2nd game of the playoff series against the Ottawa Senators. It was actually pretty awesome. I mean, I know almost no one on the team except some players that were traded or brought back on from before and it was all turning into younger players (at least thats what my boyfriend told me). The teamwork was miles more intact than before. Finally, they had gotten a group together that were willing to participate in this sport like a team. I’m just hoping that it continues to stay that way.
Another thing, maybe its the new blood. They stayed motivated even though they were in the lead. They kept their head in the game and worked hard. Sure, it didn’t feel like it was as intense as say a game against the “archrivals” such as Toronto Maple Leafs or Boston Bruins. Let me insert that I’m happy they aren’t playing against the Bruins because its always tough and that team raises my blood pressure…No offense to anyone that supports them. Lets just agree to disagree on that issue, k? To each their own! Plus, the “archrivals” are against each other for the playoffs which I think would be a fun game to watch. Just who to cheer for is the question, right?
Back to the Habs, I really hope to see them win the Stanley Cup during my lifetime. It would be a pretty amazing experience. I guess, when you are a Montrealer, the city is hockey. There is no way to escape it. If you’ve been hooked, you will stay hooked!
Go Habs Go! Lets hope they keep it up in tonight’s game and for the rest of the series 🙂
Are you a hockey fan? Do you have something (guilty pleasure or maybe something you secretly like) that you’d like to confess? 😉
