Jet Lag

So before we talk about last night's late nighter, let's address the Olympic rosters. I definitely agree with the six Penguins who were chosen for their respective teams, but was disappointed (as many were) not to see James Neal as a pick for Team Canada. Perhaps we were lucky to have two and I should bite my tongue. Afterall, some teams were completely shut out. But it's James Neal! His energy, his ability, and his boyish good looks should have landed him a secure spot. Oh well. I hope he wasn't too bent out of shape about it. Also, had Letang not missed as many games as he had, I think he would have had a good chance as well. Not that I'm hoping for an injury to one of the current players, but there's still time...

Now onto last night.

I was tired at 8:30. At 10pm I thankfully got a second wind and told myself, "You have work tomorrow. Call it a night after the second period." I did not listen. I was excited that they were up, and then I was annoyed they were down, and with about 5 to go in the third I decided that was it. Goodnight. But then... Letang scores. Sid scores. TIE GAME headed to OT. HOLY HELL. Then a shootout. Then a win. Then sleep. Did I need an extra cup of coffee this morning to function and was it well worth it? Absolutely.
