Damn you Jeff Carter…..DAMN YOU! But before I get into this let me just tell you I knew I was doomed at the drop of the puck. I was looking forward to the Flyers/Pens game all day. I knew the Flyers would play better in Game 2 and I had a real good feeling they were going to even up the series at 1-1.
Got home around 6:40 which gave me just enough time to get dinner together and sit down in front of the TV. Mrs. Iggles was blabbing away about her brothers baby (delivery date in mid-August) or some shit….I don’t know I wasn’t really paying attention. Blah…blah…blah…..does she really think I’m paying attention 20 minutes before the game starts? I mean seriously, I’ve been looking forward to this game all day!
At the exact moment the puck is dropped for the first period these words come out of Mrs. Iggles mouth…….’I want to have a baby.’
Uggghhhhh…..are you freaking kidding me! I’m home all weekend and you have to say that right as the puck is being dropped? I need to be on my ‘A’ game when ducking out of these kinds of conversations. I think she knew I was distracted and thought she’d catch me with my guard down. So I did what any self-respecting guy would do….I just pretended like I didn’t hear her and kept watching the game. Who cares if I had to sleep on the couch last night…..at least I got to watch the game.
Now for the game…I really don’t want to talk about the empty net Jeff Carter missed to clinch the game. To keep me from throwing the computer across the room it would be best if I just don’t talk about it. But a 5 on 3 overtime power play in the playoffs? I thought there were rules against that? I’ve seen guys lose a limb in overtime and not get called a penalty.
I thinks that is enough for now…..I need to figure out my game plan for the rest of the weekend. Gotta avoid this ‘baby’ situation like the plague!
