my agony over the end of the season was softened by booze and the fact that my pal strombo called the first OT for me over the phone, as i was unable to watch.... a few months ago, he was in LA during a habs-leafs shootout, and i called that one for him. this was proverbial payback. and i have to say that, even though i was convinced the flames would lose, i was grinning like a fool during his play by play of the period...
and when all was said and done after detroit scored in 2OT, i received his text that said "are you OK ?" and i can honestly say i was. cause it's the end of this excrutiating era.
playfair best be gone.
go flames 08, and go rangers 07.
thanks for being around, kids.
