Hockey in June – How Canadian

As I type this, the Pittsburgh Penguins are up 2-1 on the Detroit Red Wings in the second period of Game 5 of the Stanley Cup playoffs.  This makes me happy.

If the Wings come back to win, they'll win the Cup and the hockey season will be officially over.  This makes me sad.

I'm cheering for the Pens because they're an exciting young team, not just so I can justify playing backyard hockey for a few more days.

[Edit: Well, the Wings came back to tie it 2-2 then took the lead 3-2 then the Pens scored to tie it with less than a minute left!  So now, they're getting ready to head into the third overtime.  It's not too late here yet – 10:18pm as I type this update – but of course my boss called an early meeting – 7:30am – for tomorrow.  So I've stopped cheering for the Penguins and started cheering for the game to be over! ]
