Perhaps One of the Worst Games Ever…
aka: Knowing a Challenge is Believing in its Power (play!)
I believe this:
Last Thursday’s Bruins game versus our rivals the Montreal Canadiens was one of the Worst Games Ever.
I say this:
It was Worse Than a Shutout. A 2-1 Loss, the only goal scored in the 1st Period was off the faceoff, in the Montreal defensive end was was put in their own net. Patrice Bergeron was credited with the Goal. This faceoff was drawn during the Bruins Power Play.
I Know This:
Before tonight’s home-and-home tilt against Les Habs again, The Beantowne Bees are 24th out of 30 teams on the Man Advantage, going 5-for-37 with only a 13.5% chance earning a PPG on any given night. Even without trying apparently.
And it’s a challenge.
Which are good things in a way. When they’re In The Way, they’re Overcome or Become a Personal Boundary.
One of my Personal Points of View is my Love of Hockey is how it applies to everyday life. About Life Being a series of Passing the Puck, Scoring the Puck, Line Changes & Queues for Restrooms & Beer during the Period breaks.
Challenges though…we live them everyday in the work place. When met with challenges, they can define our limitations or propel us into the Next Level.
We expect ThunderSnow tonight for the Weather.
I expect ThunderSnow from the Bruins instead. What that really mean, I dunno but it’s shocking, cold and you gotta dress for it.
The ThunderSnow is actually proof of the Weather Device trying to root out OccupyBoston but iDigress…
Tonight, I’ll watch this game with rapt attention wearing my colors, howling that the moon and the teevee.
Bruins/Canadiens is always a treat and I love how they boo Zdeno Chara everytime he touches the Puck. It’s quite charming actually.
The challenges the Bruins faceoff against will define them, good or bad. Me too.
Maybe You. ;P
May We All Rise Up Against Our Challenges.
