As this is becoming a popular post on the WordPress blog, I’d like to point out that it was written over 4 years ago. Also: I don’t actually hate hockey. IMHO, hockey does not suck; it’s my favorite sport. The original post was borne from my frustration that the Lightning and Capitals lost on the same night… and a large part of it probably had to do with my dating [her] at the time.

The Southeast Division Champion Tampa Bay Lightning lost tonight to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. The I’ve Been Through Rooting for the Worst Team in the League (at Least Two-Years in a Row) so I’m Used to it Washington Capitals also lost tonight to the Boston Bruins.
No love for Gary.
Two nights ago, while in Tampa, my handsome brother and lovely sister-in-law offered up their tickets to me and [her] to watch the Bolts score three short-handed goals against the Bruins. But, alas, I felt like shit, and opted out of the game. After a necessary nappy-nap, [she] and I went out to watch Philly pound Spurrier… followed by multiple rounds of shitty darts and an all-around great time. Update: Steve Spurrier resigned as Washington Redskins’ head coach on 12/30/03 (ESPN via Fark).
The tickets went unused, and the Bolts won 4-2.
Shoulda’ coulda’ woulda’. Damnit. I love hockey… regardless of my teams sucking a big fat ‘possum sac.
