Hockey Night in Sarasota


Hooo-whee! What a nail biter!! “What’s that?”, you ask? Well, the Canucks-Flames game of course. For those who haven’t been keeping track, tonight was game six in the best-of-seven series, which the Flames were leading 3-2.
The game went like this*:
End of First Period: No score.
End Second: Canucks up 4-1.
End Third: Tie game, 4-4.
Into overtime we go!
End First Overtime: Tie game, 4-4.
And — you see — since this is playoff hockey, they just keep right on playing if it’s tied at the end of the first overtime. So, on we went to the second overtime:
End Second Overtime: Tie game, 4-4.
On started the third overtime. Finally, 2:28 into the period, Brendan Morrison scored a beautiful goal to win the game and force the series back to Vancouver for what will unquestionably be a stressful final game Monday night.
I had the most spectacularly lazy day today. Part of this was propagated by going out to the Daiquiri Deck last night with Cam, Darren and Lisa. Lisa works for the newspaper that ran the article on Ultimate Frisbee a couple months back. She came out with the article writer and has recently regained interested in the sport; she came out Sunday, Tuesday and as well to our game on Thursday, too. There were people within +/-10 years of my age at the ‘Deck, which was good (a nice change of pace from the other two bars we thought of going to: “The Tasting Room” and “The Five O’Clock Club”, both of which appear to cater to the 40-50 year-old crowd.) Expensive drinks though — my tiny plastic-cup Electric Lemonade was $6.50. We drank slowly.
Before going to bed I made grand plans to clean up the house this morning. Of course that didn’t happen… entirely, anyhow. Instead, I slept until noon, and used a large chunk of the afternoon to create a hockey CD:

73 minutes of puck-shootin’ bliss! Seek these gems out on your local filesharing service. I’m really looking foward to the next few days; talk about your hockey hysteria. Tomorrow, it’s Toronto Maple Leafs-Ottawa Senators in Game 6 (the Leafs lead the series 3-2); Monday, the final Canucks-Flames game; then Tuesday Game 7 of Leafs-Senators. Hopefully no more of them go into a sixth period like tonight — I’m not sure my stomach can handle the drama.

  2. davin — it definitely wasn’t easy… i started closing my eyelids a little after the first overtime, though Ville Nieminen’s shot for Calgary (off the back of the crossbar) halfway through the second overtime woke me back up. 🙂
    alison, thanks 😀 did you fall asleep?

  3. Hi, Krishen. I’ve been looking everywhere for a copy of “The Chance May Never Come Again” and I came across your blog. Would it be possible for you to mail me the .mp3 or .wav file? I would really appreciate it! Thanks, Paul.

  4. Hi Krishen. I just found out that someone I work with was involved with Young Offender’s production of Joe Bowen Rap. I have been looking all over for it and your blog is the only mention I could find. Any chance you could send me a .wav file of this?

  5. the “It’s Called The Todd Bertuzzi” song is by a guy named “Heavy Eric” he’s from BC, has a few cds, more of a local artist.
