Stay-at-Home Hockey Wife
The many nights of dedicated hockey watching. The little superstitious acts performed to ensure the team a win. The afternoons filled with activities designed to control the kids and keep them away from the TV. The highs and the lows. The hopes and dreams of winning the Stanley Cup.
The hockey season has never been so long in my home. There were 19 extra play off games watched in our living room (it has been called a "fairy tale run"). The team has not gone this far in the play offs since 1993 (my husband and I only met in 2003). But last night was the end of the line for the Montreal Canadiens.
I am sad to see my husband lose his good friends; Cammalleri, Gionta, Kostitsyn, Plekanek, Halak, Markov, Bergeron, Gill, Spacek and Lapierre. These guys have become household names and will be missed.
I now hang up my "Hockey Wife" hat and return to a life where evening plans revolve more around comedy and drama and less around sports.
Go Habs Go!
