Hockey has been over for myself and for the Flyers for some time now. Those of you who know me know that I LOVE hockey. I had full faith in my Flyers at the start of this abbreviated season. Turns out it was seriously misplaces. I joined in a blog bet with Sean at Cautious Realism and Simple Dude to see whose team would come out on top. The bet was that whomever’s team made it furthest in the race to the cup would win. The winner would then receive gifts from each loser’s homestate.
My Flyers didn’t even make the first round of playoffs and the Wild (Simple Dude’s team) wasn’t far behind. Sean’s Blue’s didn’t make it past the first round either but they lasted just long enough in the round to outlive the Wild, and thus Sean is the winner. That means that we shower Sean with gifts…or at least we send him a few things.
I debated for a while, wondering what to send him. Do I clutter his mailbox with Flyers pride and make him wear Philly gear? Do I overnight cheesesteaks or soft pretzels? Should I send him a figurine of the liberty bell or a print from our art museum? I wondered for a bit but I finally came up with a couple things that I was happy with.
So, soon I will be sending off my gifts to Sean in the hopes that next year I’m on the winning side of this little bet we have going on. I love hockey, so of course I’ll still be watching all the match ups and the Stanley Cup Finals. A hockey fan is a fan of the sport itself, not just one team. I’m a proud hockey fan, but damn, it stings to not win the blog bet. Next year, gentlemen, next year.
Now, away from hockey and onto AWESOME. The final ballots have been calculated for the Badass Blog Awards at The Indie Chicks.
