And let me tell you something else. Being a fan is not about screaming for the heads of the guys who shit the bed in one game, it's about loving your team, and your players, win or lose. Now maybe I'm a little different from most fans, because I honestly couldn't give a shit less about the name on the front. I follow players, I don't care about teams, because team loyalty is a completely dead and foreign concept anymore in hockey. Teams aren't loyal to their players, why should the fans be loyal to the teams? Case in point: Jason Smith and Olie Kolzig. And even though when the day comes that Kari moves on from Atlanta (which might be at the end of this season, by his own choosing, if this team doesn't straighten the fuck up and play something a little better than midnight beer league), I will follow him to whatever team is next, because I love him as a player. So am I biased? Probably. But I'd rather be biased than be a jerkoff who couldn't stop a goal if his/her life depended on it, yet takes an exorbitant amount of glee in talking shit about guys who have made playing hockey their entire life.
You know what hockey is like? It's like the stock market. Panicking does nothing. Just sit back and let it ride. To borrow a line from Sting Cheese Incident, the roller coaster's gotta go to the bottom before it climbs to the top again. So simmer down people, jesus. Big fucking deal. One game out of an 82 game season. Life goes on. Learn from the game and move onto the next. Because as far as I'm concerned, that game never happened. MOVING ON!
That almost looks like a goal....
Witty caption here.
So pretty. So rattled.
Kärppä, rakastan sinua, älä anna yhden pelin helistin sinua. Ja kiitos, voisitko pukeutua Transformers peittää pian? Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitos? :)
