Vancouver Canucks to Stanley Cup Final

25 May

I’m pissed. Opps. I mean, I’m angry. This proves I really, truly am plagued with bad luck. It’s probably contagious, so don’t get too close to the computer screen.

The San Jose Sharks couldn’t do it. They couldn’t fight the Vancouver Canucks.

Now, I have no idea who to root for in the Stanley Cup Finals. The only reason I’m rooting for the Tampa Bay Lightning is because they a) have pretty colored jerseys and b) I wanted to watch San Jose Sharks take a huge bite of their ugly butts and send them swimming back down to Florida.

But from the recent victory from the Vancouver Canucks (4-2), it looks like my dreams of the Stanley Cup Playoffs are over. If only I can give Joe Thornton a hug, he looks like he needs one.


San Jose Sharkies lost… again.

22 May

Ignore my advice earlier. No pictures of hockey players, no matter how adorable and funny they are, can make me feel better. Well maybe an Alex Semin picture will do the job with some well deserved vegetable fried rice and some peanut butter chips after. Maybe. But probably not.

And I digress.

I’m tired of losses. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. I can’t stand them. As of right now, minutes after the ridiculous loss, I’m beginning to think I am really plagued with bad luck. First the Carolina Hurricanes, then the Chicago Blackhawks, then the Pittsburgh Penguins and then the Washington Capitals. And now the San Jose Sharks.

Why am I bad luck to my favorite teams? Why?!

O, the mysteries of life.

Nope, not even that.

San Jose Sharkies on a role!

21 May

So the Sharkies are on a role (3-0)– and I’m so excited! I’ve been exhausted all day and watching this game makes me really happy. This is almost as exciting as Jeff Skinner getting voted as the Rookie of the Year, almost. But I can’t get my hopes too high, the Canucks might come back– they have before.

But I can be happy for now– and, oh, I am!

GO GO GO, you crazy Sharkies!

Tampa Bay vs. Boston; Eastern Conference Finals, Game 1

15 May

First Period: Score. Score. Score. Tampa Bay scores 3 goals in around 12 minutes or so. My heart’s racing. I should be rooting for Boston, but I’m not; I’m rooting for Tampa Bay. Score. Boston scores and I feel like yelling at the TV, but I’m not. I’m thinking about a lot of things: the recent death of Derek Boogaard, San Jose tomorrow vs. Vancouver and if they’re going to make it to the Stanley Cup finals or not. All I know is that it’s getting more and more physical and I’m unable to predict who will win the Stanley Cup this year– but I’m rooting for San Jose. But it’s not San Jose’s game tonight, it’s Tampa Bay’s. And I need to pay attention.

Second Period: Tampa Bay gets a power play: no goal. Boston gets a power play: no goal. My nerves are bursting through the roof. Why can’t this game be over like it is? Why can’t Tampa Bay win 3-1 against Boston? Oh, the mysteries of life. Now back to the game. Tampa gets another power play: no goal. Boston gets another power play: no goal. I’m a little distracted by the Kaner Shuffle and playing the Bongo’s so it’s kind of hard to concentrate but I’m listening–and I’m nervous. End of second period and I’m very happy.

Third Period: Anxious, nervous. My heart’s pounding. If you think I was scared before, you have no idea what I am now. This might seem a little weird to people. Why, Kristin, do you get scared when it’s only Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals? Well, because I’m superstitious. I believe that winning Game 1 is good luck. I want, I need, Tampa Bay to win tonight. Now back to the game. SCORE! Tampa Bay scored and now it’s 4-1. I’m as happy as can be; Boston Bruins fans would disagree. But the game’s not over yet. Okay, there might be only 3:07 left on the clock and it’s probably safe to say that Tampa Bay’s going to win but I’m still nervous. SCORE! Now it’s safe to say Tampa Bay’s winning this game! Score. Boston scored. But nevertheless, they have no chance of winning.


Oh Sharkies

14 May

I had a horrible night last night and I needed to know if the Sharks won. So at 5 in the morning, I looked up to see if they did or not. Tears were forming in my eyes and sweat was rolling down my face as I looked at the screen.“Sharks Top Red Wings 3-2!”  I almost, almost, started crying. It was a very happy moment– and then I went back to being really tired and wanting more sleep.


Pressure’s on the San Jose Sharks!

13 May

I took the Capitals loss very badly. So badly, in fact, that I’m scared to root for any other team but I’ve got to keep my hopes up. Unfortunately, I’m plagued with bad luck and it seems San Jose, the new team I’m rooting for, is going to lose tonight against the Red Wings. I’m re-cleaning my room, pacing back and forth, straightening out my ridiculously messy bun, and biting my nails in anticipation for the game that will be on, starting at 9:00 p.m.

The only thing that’s keeping me from biting my nails off is that I have the IIHF World Championships tomorrow with Russia vs. Canada. And I won’t lie, I’m also excited about seeing Alex Semin’s gorgeous face.

Oh Sasha!

Washington Out of the Playoffs… for good.

5 May

Yesterday… was a horrible day. I’ve got to say that I had a feeling, a very depressing feeling, that my Washington Capitals were not going to win yesterday and therefore were going to be eliminated from the Playoffs by the Tampa Bay Lightning. And I, as I thought, was right. Again. I watched as Alex Semin played little and Alex Ovechkin played a lot and I remembered how much I loved my amazing, red Russians:

...Oh yes,wouldn't I like to be in the middle of those two!

 Of course, those two didn’t make up for their horrible loss (5-3) but with a little of the Beach Boys (“Wouldn’t It Be Nice”) and dressing up ridiculously girly today, my day was officially made up. If only that were true. Now I’m forced to root for the San Jose Sharks, what a pity. Thank God I didn’t buy a Washington Capitals flag to run around the streets with while waving it over my head for when they won the Stanley Cup. Great way to save $30: don’t buy a Washington Capitals flag–and don’t root for them either.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the Capitals had won, then they might have won the Stanley Cup.

Sounds kinda catchy, don’t you think?
