NHL playoffs. While I am floored that my Rangers beat the Caps. I am more amazed that I love hockey at all.
My mother's family is from Buffalo, so I guess it's not totally unrealistic that I would like hockey. But it is still highly unlikely. That is because I grew up in the southeast from the age of four and while there is an NHL team in the state I have lived in since I was four, that team got here when I was about 16.
Somehow, I always loved the frozen sport. I fell in love as a young teen with Mark Messier. And it is still an open joke that I married my husband because he has the same haircut as Mark.
But even when my Rangers don't make the playoffs, I am glued to games. I cannot get enough of the ice, the skates, the checks, the fanfare...there is a game on now. I must get back to it.
