dear capital greasers:
we've been bitter rivals for the longest time, but thanks for putting that aside tonight while facing the one team we agree on hating SO much more.... all of your players really stepped it up and i'm not entirely sure why; whether you're battling for a playoff spot, trying to keep your coach, or just hoping to get more congratulatory questions directed at kevin lowe by marc crawford on HNIC after hours.
i don't think i've ever cheered for an edmonton goal but when sam gagner notched the winning tally, i sure celebrated out loud. tonight was also the first time i've watched hemsky chase down a puck and hoped that he'd get there first (and tuck it in the empty net).
oh, and i gotta say: you looked pretty sharp in your vintage orange-and-blues.
i promise to cheer for every goal you score, and every game you win in the next five days, and then the hiatus is back off again (beastie boys style) when it comes to hockey... as of next friday, i will be really rooting for your golf swing, though.
