I’m popping in quick to say hello and Happy Friday!
It’s been a busy week workwise and a very busy week hockey wise too! Lots of Islanders home games this week (and this weekend) but last night totally takes the cake.
Not that many of my readers care at all, but last night’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs was absolutely one of the best games I have ever attended in my entire life and I love knowing that my son will remember the game for the rest of his life too. I would say it was the best I’ve ever attended but I can’t neglect the playoff games I went to as a kid so let’s just call it a top three game in my lifetime.
I paid a small fortune to be in attendance last night as us Islanders fans welcomed John Tavares back to New York. I say that sarcastically because we gave the guy hell as no other fan base can. AND IT WAS AMAZING. There were easily 12 different chants going against him (like, WE DON’T NEED YOU) combined with booing every time he came on the ice or touched the puck to the point where you couldn’t hear a thing — it was truly special.
Listen, fans around the league can have what to say because it’s not their team. Have all the rationale you want when you have no emotion attached to the situation. They can continue to tweet all they want about how we are classless but the truth is, this is hockey. This is New York. This is a situation where your captain lies about wanting to stay and then drags out a decision until it’s too late for us to get anything for him in return. It’s him who is classless. He didn’t respect us so why can’t we give him a little hell in form of free speech when he returns to our building? He even said he doesn’t owe anyone anything so why do we owe him a parade of applause- for what? Last night was the ultimate fan experience, and the Islanders blew out the Maple Leafs, 6-1.
Thank you for listening to my ranting. I may or may not call in today to NHL radio programs to continue to preach. 🙂
So just a few other quick notes before I go get my Friday going.
Tie-Dye is taking over. Well, that’s nice to hear, even though I’ve been wearing it anyway for years.
I LOVED reading this article literally a day after my friend Lisa and I discussed how invaluable our skinny jeans are to our wardrobes. We find skinny jeans to be the most flattering on our petite frames, especially when we wear them the exact way the article cites. Even though boot cut and flare are coming back in style, I am not switching what I wear or giving up my skinny jeans.
I’ve shared my favorite skinny jeans in the past but here they are again. You totally need them if you want to wear jeans that fit well and make you happy every time you put them on.
Have a great weekend! I will be back on Sunday with my workouts which have been great this week, by the way. So far, two awesome speed workout on the treadmill!
