Vancouver eliminated

🙁 🙁 🙁
I can’t remember a more tense game. Such incredible highs and low lows — when Matt Cooke scored the tying goal for Vancouver with 5.7 seconds left in the 3rd period, I thought I was going to die. And when Martin Gelinas scored the winning goal for Calgary just 1:25 into overtime, it was like the world stopped rotating and I was watching everything slide by. Kinda like what I imagine being in a car-wreck feels like. Flip, flip, flip, except without a thud at the end. In its place, was a big nothing. I just stared at the screen, not believing what had just happened, even though I saw it perfectly well.
Ack. Don’t think the sleep thing is going to work very well tonight.


  1. my feelings exactly. i don’t think i’ve screamed quite so loudly watching a hockey game by myself before.

  2. good question, i’m sick 🙁
    and in my current state of romantic affairs there isn’t anyone willing to give up game 7 at the pub to sit on my couch and watch my body attempt to heal itself by excreting fluids of many different colours.

  3. Hey Alison — sorry to hear you’re sick! on the plus side the leafs winning tonight made me a little bit happier. Yay for Canadian teams getting to the finals!
