For the first night since April 14th, there was no hockey to watch! The Conference Semi Finals will wind down with Boston hosting Philadelphia tonight, and the Conference Finals beginning Sunday afternoon as Chicago visits the Sharks at 3:00 P.M on NBC, and the Habs play the winner of tonights game at 7:00 P.M.
So gang, with no hockey on the tele, how did you spend your evening?
Watching baseball? As much as I love that sport, it’s too boring right now, plus my Orioles are sucking it big time!
How about some NBA playoff action? Not for me. I usually ask, isn’t the season over? Well for Lebron James it is!
Catch up on your Tivo? CSI: Miami, Damages, The Goodwife, Glee, Lost. Old Seinfeld reruns?
Or god forbid one of those Houeswives of Bitch Devil some ridiculous County Shows! God those shows suck!
Take in a movie? Iron Man 2, Date Movie?
Or maybe you looked over the list of potential free agents that your team might go after:
As for me, I had the pleasure of attending a luckily perfectly planned banquet for the high school softball team that I’m an assistant coach for. The date was set prior to the NHL playoffs and not knowing what would happen, I felt that if there was a conflict I’d deal with it at the time. We had a nice dinner. Chicken that tasted more like veal, vegies, salad and garlic roasted potatoes. A few adult beverages were consumed by us adults of course. A nice video presentation of the team’s lackluster season.
Awards were given out and speaches were made. Known for my witty and sarcastic humor mine was simple. “I want to thank everyone for a wonderful season, I want to thank you all for attending tonight. I need to let you know that you’re all very lucky. If there had been a game seven between Chicago and Vancouver tonight, I wouldn’t be here. Thanks for coming and enjoy the rest of your evening”!
Fortunately play resumes this evening with a game seven matchup in Boston. So who do you pick?
I’m shooting for the Bruins as I think that will be a better match up for Montreal who suddenly finds themselves in the Conference final.
Thanks for reading.
