Today's the day! (repeat ad nauseum)

Monday, June 19, 2006
Today's the day!
Today's the day!
Today's the day!

Okay, that takes care of my hype quota for this post.

But seriously, this is it. This is what it all comes down to. With 6h25min to go (starting from when I wrote this), there seems to be this "calm before the storm" sort of thing going on wherever I look. Even people who lean one way or the other for either team seem to be treading lightly and quietly when tempering their words about game seven.

And really, what else is there to say? Everything that could be said, has already been said through these Stanley Cup finals, both in earlier news reports, the many blogs that align themselves with either the 'Canes or the Oilers, and through action on the ice. We've seen tragedy, we've seen comedy, we've seen surprises, and now we simply must have patience as the clock tick downs on the start of tonight's game.

It's been two years since anyone has seen the Cup skated around a sheet of ice in celebration of the NHL Champion team. With the team that I devote my blog and my energy to out a long time ago, these playoffs have been an amazing potpourri of channel surfing and game watching, never really attached to any team. It's true, I said a few weeks ago that I want to see the 'Canes win, but even then that is just based off of my desire to see the sport blossom in new places. All I care about now is having a great game 7. I want to see a close game. A game where I'm yelling at the TV or flailing my arms like a lunatic because it just gets me so energized!

Most of all, I want to see the freakin' Stanley Cup awarded. Right about now I could care less about the winner. Just show me the cup, and I'll be happy.
