Went on a field trip as a chaperone for my four year old's kindergarten class. Over forty little kids going to the farms and of course as anyone who has kids knows at that age they are mental. Completely nuts. It was fun, completely chaotic and weird, but it did go really well until they butchered the steer.
Speaking of weirdos, did you know that I actually have a super power? Seriously. I can find stuff. The boy is looking for a potato chip he lost a few days ago. I can track it down. Immediately. Its like I have a sixth sense or something. Not sure how I can incorporate this into a tight pleather costume so I can fight crime but I'll figure something out.
And finally, how awful must it have been for Wings' fans Monday night. Thirty five seconds away from the Cup and then ...BOOM. The saving graces - they have two more shots at it and they won it recently. Don't get me wrong, if they lose tonight and again on Saturday that will be a moment they agonize over forever but imagine if the same scenario had played itself out when the Canucks were pressing at the end of G7 in 1994. Then you can really talk about curses. At least they are not trying to break fifty years of frustration. Still, thirty five seconds....
When freaky Maxime Talbot came into the picture as the sixth attacker I scratched my head. Turns out he had not been used in that role all year. Imagine that. Crazy stuff.
A game seven would be a lot of fun but I think the Wings finish it tonight. They have nobody to blame but themselves for G5. A poor first period and they could have been down three or four really. I think they come out and do the Pens in right away tonight.
Worrisome if you are a Wings' fan? I might bet on Fleury over Osgood in G7 and Malkin finally showed some life in G5. If he were to finally wake up and help out Crosby and Hossa things might get interesting.
I don't think so though.
