I think I might be too much of a spaz to be a hockey fan.

On Friday night I got home from work, and to my great horror, the Sabres were still playing. The game was 3-2 in favor of the Sabres, and the game was in its last minutes. I turned on the television just in time to see the Sabres take two penalties in a row. I literally couldn’t take the suspense, so I wandered in to the kitchen and did the dishes as I listened to Rick Jeanneret hollering indistinctly over the sound of the running water. I raced back into the living room when I heard something that sounded an awful lot like, “He Scoooooooooooooooooooores!”

After three losses in a row, I was getting too squeamish to watch.

Things feel a whole lot less terrifying after the lovely weekend. On Thursday night, I intend to sit down in front of the television, and take it like a (wo)man.
