There’s quite a bit of me that doesn’t even want to talk about last night’s game. I feel like the more I talk about games, the more I jinx this team (no, I’m not superstitious, why?). Though I’m pretty sure at this point, I’m never allowed to go to another game with Hartigan ever again. Together we are 0-2, once in Bridgestone, once in Scottrade.
So that just means we move on, right? On to the last game of the regular season (how did that even happen?). The Stars are not going to be playing any more games until October after tonight. The question then remains, will we see the Stars that shut down Chicago the final day of last season? Or will we see the Stars that show as much energy as the people in Dallas show getting to their games when the Rangers are playing elsewhere? (Hint: That means no energy).
No matter which Stars team we see or which Blues lineup Hitch puts together, a bunch of us will in fact be watching this game together.
Tonight, if you have nothing to do, you should come out to Cousin Hugo’s in Manchester with us, famed location of previous meetups. Last time we nearly took over the entire back room. It gets a little rowdy, but that’s what makes things fun, right? Be there around 630, as the game starts 7-ish, and it’s best to start a game with a frosty adult beverage in hand.
All that aside, the other day I was chirping back and forth with a couple Canucks fans. They have the same type of superstitions as the rest of us crazy hockey kids, and the overwhelming consensus was “Let St Louis take the President’s Trophy, we’ll take the Cup.” They see the President’s Trophy as a jinx. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. At this point, I’d forego the President’s if it meant this city got to plan another parade.
TAUNTING THE HOCKEY GODS IS NOT OK, KIDS.
This whole having your team in the playoffs thing is new to me. I’m a bit interested to see just how this superstition thing starts to affect me.
But. I am so freaking excited to find out.
Come on boys, one more win, a few days off, then the dance starts.
LET’S GO BLUES!!!
