game 7 pregame: dream a little dream

as mentioned in the last days, i've been having some seriously weird hockey-related dreams, and i'm taking it as a good sign. last night i dreamed of a hockey game i was in attendance for & i believe it was the allan cup. it was a smaller, community-sized rink (not a massive NHL arena), but dion was there and helped win it. at the 'afterparty', dion was sporting a pretty flashy gold top that looked an awful lot like the one my friend chyanne was wearing. many photos ensued*****... i wasn't too interested, though, because a) my nike kicks played "imagine" by john lennon, and b) there was a MASSIVE windstorm moving in.

*****i'm praying this is a sign of a win tonight, and not a sign of a win at the worlds in halifax/quebec next month.... though the whole 'wearing gold' thing scares me a little on second read....

in other news:

i'm not sure if this link will work for just anyone, and certainly it won't if you're not logged into facebook, but i HIGHLY recommend watching this full-length (4 minute) version of a "bring home the cup" entry. it showed up in my newsfeed this morning and made me grin like a fool before even really waking up. let me know how it works out....

as for the game, i would imagine the sharks to come out hard but nervous, and (with any luck), keenan and the vast well of veteran experience can calm the flaming troops through to a win. for the first time this year i really think it's possible that we'll win, which presumeably means i should anticipate a total sharks blowout and nabby pitching another shutout.... either way, i'm pretty happy with the way the team has been ramping up the effort with each game, and appear to have the tools to make a run....

huge congrats to the habs for slaying the bears with a dominant performance in their G7, and best wishes to the caps in hopes they can come out victorious in theirs earlier this evening.

see you guys tomorrow, one way or another....

If the Flames lose are you going to make your own pretty hate machine?

Heh...

I've heard that Amos was influenced by Reznor and included that lyric as a *winking* homage to him.
