Swept Away *sob*

Alas, Winnipeg's famed whiteouts could not freeze the Anaheim Ducks to the ice. The Ducks swept the series in four games and the Jets are now eliminated. But the games were always fast-paced, hard-hitting, exciting hockey. Well fought, Jets!

I am now switching my playoffs allegiance to the Calgary Flames, who are just on the verge of pounding the Vancouver Canucks into oblivion. So boys, bring that same aggression to the Ducks matchup in the second round!


GO FLAMES GO!

Ducks is such a funny name for a team :)

Ah, bummer. Go Flames? Yeah, sure, go Flames (that's a pretty bad name for a team unless there's some backstory I don't know, but it's still not worse than the origin story of the dumb Ducks, so let's go with it).

Sucks your team is out but at least they went out with a fight, and you can pick a new one to keep enjoying them playoffs.

Well that didn't go well the first time around. I hope your next choice does better!

Fingers crossed that this is the one! In the meantime, how about some peach, raspberry, and almond muffins?

i feel your pain. we lost last night too. one more game and we should all be licking our wounds until next season. i realized as i was dragging my sorry ass to bed last night that watching these games is a lot like gambling. i kept staying up for just 10 more minutes hoping we would score. i did that into overtime and as i headed up the stairs i felt much the same as i do when i blow a bunch of money at a casino. damn! all that wasted sleep!

I thought of you, Debra, when I heard this on CBC sports this morning.
Maybe Calgary will do the job.

Hey Debra,

My human Gary, a VANCOUVER CANUCKS fan, was routing for the Atlanta Thrashers, sorry, Winnipeg Jets, to beat the Disney Ducks. Take care, eh and arf!

You've switched your allegiance, so I have too. Go FLAMES!

Kamyria said...

Oh, I'm sorry about the Jets, Debra! It's heartbreaking to have your team eliminated in the first round... that's too soon.

As for me, I'm sticking with Montreal Canadiens for now.

Empty Nest Insider said...

If you say Flames, than Flames it is! First came The Mighty Ducks, and then came the team, eh? Hope you're feeling better, Debra.
