Nightmare on Blog Street

A few weeks ago I sent out a little questionnaire to some great hockey minds about how angry they get about hockey. I planned at some point to write a little article about it. Recently I got a tweet from one of the participants, Ryan from The Two-Line Pass, asking me to remind him why he filled out the survey. I responded that I needed to get good and angry first.

WELL, WE HAVE ARRIVED, PEOPLE.

I have enclosed a wonderful song by one of my favorite bands, The Haunted, as background music while you read. Unless you don't like heavy metal, in which case, why not?


As I was driving this afternoon I was listening to KFAN and stressing over Percy Harvin's status for Sunday. I'm very nervous about the Vikings. With or without Percy.

I didn't watch the game or even follow it as I had class tonight and I gave my phone to my friend to hold until after class was over so I could focus and be prepared for the quiz at the end. So I didn't read my texts until I was walking down the EXTREMELY ICY STREETS trying to locate my vehicle which was parked a million miles away because THERE WAS NO PARKING and I nearly did the splits trying to step over a snowbank and then I discovered WE WERE LOSING BY FOUR GOALS and seriously considered jumping in front of a car, but they were not going fast enough to kill me so I opted not to.

I AM SO VERY ANGRY RIGHT NOW. I called MEg, the only person who understands how I feel about this sorry excuse for a D-3 team, and flipped out for awhile, and then I tuned to 93X, hoping to listen to something LOUD and HEAVY and of course they had some terrible song on that was neither heavy nor loud. Well, it was loud because I had the stereo turned up. So I came home and listened to The Haunted, the greatest band ever. Mostly because I was hanging out with my friends after one of their shows and when the (now former) vocalist came out of the club my friends were trying to shake his hand and he gave them the brush-off and came up to me and told me how much I rocked. But also because they have great music.

And then I got home and had an envelope waiting for me from UMD Athletics ASKING ME TO DONATE MONEY!!!!! TO THIS TEAM!!!!! WHAT!!?!?!!?!?!? Talk about THE WORST TIMING EVER.

Whatever. It's just another game to us, but this is like their pathetic little national championship.

And that article? Can't even write it tonight. Gotta be up at 6:30 for school tomorrow.

No Numbers tonight. As far as I'm concerned, EVERYONE is On Notice, except for the injured guys.
