Round 2

I could not be more pleased with the Eastern Conference semi-finals.  I think Boston is going to demolish Carolina (in a highly-enjoyable-for-Katebits kind-of-way), and no matter what happens with Pittsburgh/Washington, that’s going to be a crazy scene.  I’m totally in the mood to embrace the NHL’s MOST-IMPORTANT-MATCH-UP-IN-THE-HISTORY-OF-HOCKEY hype machine.   Bring it. (Also, go Sid!)

I’m less enthused about the West only because I’m sad that my two favorite WC teams are playing each other already.  I want George Parros AND Pavel Datsyuk to be happy.  How will I ever choose?

    Go Sid! ???? No way. Go Ovie!!!! :) I’m in Virginia, what can I say!

    I’m thinking 7 games and an OT decision. Should be a good time for hockey fans.

    I am so hoping you are correct about Boston. Can’t root for Carolina as real hockey teams don’t need cheerleaders! Of course, it’s against my Sabre loving rules to root for Boston but just this once.

    Two words: Ryan. Getzlaf. Don’t buy!

    I know! The whole Pavel and George thing. I’m thought I liked it because I could see them both at the same time… but now you have me confused. :)

    Hey now! Plenty of the teams (including the Caps) have cheerleaders, too! Sure, the Canes had them first… but maybe that just means the Canes cheerleaders have more integrity? :P (I can’t believe this season has reduced me to defending the Hurricanes cheerleaders. What next? WHAT NEXT???)

    I’m cheering for the Whalers.

    And I’d like to this that the Red Rockers or more of a pep squad, but I will also admit that they are totally embarrassing. That doesn’t mean I’m not totally trying out to be one. Let’s not be absurd.

    Well, we’re all secretly dreaming to be Ice Girls/Ice Dancers, right? Isn’t that what draws us girls to hockey in the first place? The hope of someday having an official NHL-team-logoed spandex uniform that will let us show off our fan spirit and our belly-button rings simultaneously? ;-)

    Two more words: Drew. Miller.

    The thing I love about the Red Rockers is that the Caps totally caved to the pearl clutching “Gaaaaaasp! Scantily clad women, AT A HOCKEY GAME?! WON’T SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!” crowd. And so now the Red Rockers have one dude. Because having a dude on the “pep squad” toooootally proves that the Red Rockers are about PEP. The Red Rockers are NOT about sex.

    Personally, I’m not offended by ice girls. They’re cheesy and tacky, but not that big a deal (to me). And yes, I would drop everything to become an ice girl if the opportunity arose.

    (I can’t believe this season has reduced me to defending the Hurricanes cheerleaders. What next? WHAT NEXT???)

    Ha! Seriously, though. What next?

    I KNOW! That’s the lamest thing EVER! (And really, the ice girl thing doesn’t bug me that much either, other than that I’m a hockey purist and prefer my at-the-game experience to be devoid of literally everything but hockey. I don’t even like that they play music at games. Heh. Furthermore, if I’m going to spend my time at hockey games thinking about how foxy the players are, I suppose I don’t have much of a leg to stand on if I’m going to get het up about the objectification of ice girls, right?)

    Maybe I’m just extremely old school ( and I am, bring back ties, what’s wrong with a tie!) but I just can’t excuse the cheerleaders. I’ve never seen the Caps cheerleaders. Do the Pens have “ice girls”? Geez, I may just have to change my alliance! :P

    And it’s not that I don’t notice a good looking hockey player but skill is more important, unless your a Stall, then I just don’t like you! :D

    Tots. I like to think of hockey players like pieces of meat, and maybe that comes at a cost. I guess that cost is ice girls?

    I dunno. They never covered this kind of thing in my Womyn’s Studies class at Oberlin. Heh.

    Sidney Crysby can suck an egg…LET’S GO CAPS! LET’S GO CAPS!
