Just When I Think I'm Out...

by Anne

My first loves were never in the playoffs, my #2 team is gone, my #3 team has been golfing since February, that leaves the ex-boyfriend of hockey teams left to cheer for:

Max: Gronk, Anne's totally checking us out
Gronk: Hells yeah she is, we're all she's got left
Both (and Sid, behind them on the bench): Awwww yeah

So Pens, its true. I came crawling back. You were right. You always knew I couldn't stay away.

I mean I like the Blackhawks, I really do. I want them to win, definitely. I know they're in different conferences, but I need to start distancing myself now. On the off chance the Pens and Hawks meet in the Finals (highly unlikely but not totally un-possible), I will be cheering for the Penguins, I can't deny their appeal. The Pittsburgh Penguins were thiiiiiis close to being my hometown team, and I can't ignore that almost-love.

When people predict repeat Cup Finals appearances in October I always call them crazy and un-original. Up until, oh, maybe five days ago, I didn't think it was possible for a re-match. Remember how godawful terrible the Pens were for awhile in there? New coach, some roster moves and BLAMMO, here they are, one step away from the big dance.

As far as Game 1 against the Butter Snaps goes, the B-Snaps have Scott Walker's wife's cancer toooootally playing the media on their side. I wish Scott and Julie Walker nothing but the absolute best and a full recovery and health and happiness. However, I'd like Scott's season to end after this series... so he can take care of his recovering wife. See? My reasons for the B-Snaps to lose are toooootally coming from a good place. Totally.

For those of you who've missed the biggest subplot to the playoffs EVER EVER EVER, there are two bros playing each other in this series.

Ok, thanks, we get it.

No, really, we know they're brothers

For those who aren't sure how this whole "Staal brothers playing each other" thing plays out. Here's all you have to know:

Simple math.

    I opened up this to make a comment and I have no idea what I was going to say. Oh I totally thought that some guy in that top picture up there was Pommer. Just for like a second. I'll probably go look at it again and say nevermind he looks nothing like him. But I thought he did. What a stupid comment. I love the definition of me in this glossary. It captures me perfectly.

Glossary... Sort of

  • "Ryan Miller Shutout" - A 58 minute, multi-goal shutout lead that is blown when Miller allows one meaningless goal
  • Britney or SabreBritney - Thomas Vanek
  • Butter Snaps - Carolina Hurricanes. Because Butter Snap pretzels, like the Carolina Hurricanes, are disgusting
  • Greener - MATT Greene (LAK)
  • JBG - Jolly Blonde Giant - Tyler Myers
  • Little Foot - Drew Stafford
  • MK - Anne's sister; often leaves nonsensical comments under her Twitter name Mmmkizzle
  • Oscar - Anne's cat

Because it's never not funny

Completely adorable
