my immediate reactions on tonight's affair:
the flippant reaction:
playfair came out from the lockerroom in a canary yellow shirt, burgundy striped tie & pinstriped suit jacket (god only knows what his pants looked like). i sighed a sigh of the doomed. yep...
the despondent reaction
with about a minute and a half left, the calgary bench called a time out. playfair didn't seem to take part in this activity, aside from standing nearby and looking sullen and deeply concerned [no doubt for the future of his career].
the optimistic reaction
if the flames don't make the playoffs, we won't have to sit through four additional excrutiating games [and i say four because, let's face it --if the boys make it into the post-season, they sure ain't gonna be winning any games...]. other postitives include amonte only playing 13 mins...
