It Begins Again...

During the first week of October every year, a quest begins to take home one of the most sought after and difficult to win trophies in professional sports...the holy grail that all of those who play the game look to obtain...it is a grueling test of wills, stamina, and guts...with the prize being awarded to a select few who pay the ultimate sacrifice to hoist it high into the air and kiss it with pride...it leaves the men who win it in various states of euphoria with some crying and babbling like babies from its magnificence...


With the start of the quest and in order to understand the pain that goes with this annual rite of passage, a sacrifice must be made...its very simple, give up something you love in order to appease and honor those who came before...it must be made with no pause for thought, just let the sacrifice go and pray to the hockey gods to grant your team and its players the honor to play for the rite to be immortalized on its cool metal body forever...

The sacrifice must be made before the first puck drops on the new season...

The eve of the season is upon us and the sacrifice has been prepared...the only thing left to do is offer it up...It is coming...ARE YOU READY?????

  2. Nothing better than the return of hockey every fall, I've been ready since the Wings lost in Game 7 to San Jose.
