[We interrupt our regularly scheduled blog article for a hockey post, regardless of those of you who ignore professional sports…]
I had planned on posting the rest of The Shack review, but I had a diversion from our normal Sunday writing time today. Krista and I were surprised by two free tickets to the Nashville Predator’s game 6 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs (round 1). My sister and her husband were gracious enough to pass them along to us when they couldn’t use them, and we had a blast.
The story of the game was the defense of the Detroit Red Wings. After the first period, it was like Detroit had an extra man on defense every time the Predators came down the ice. The Preds lost 0-3, and as a long time Detroit-hater it was painful to watch. However, no one expected the Preds to take them to a Game 6, so there is some solace in that.
The Preds are now out of the playoffs, but it was worth being there just to experience the intensity of playoff hockey. I said to Krista on the way to the car that if someone gave me the choice of Superbowl tickets or tickets to any game of the Stanley Cup playoffs, I would choose NHL every time. There is nothing like it!
