Just back home after 2 days away on a business trip here in the UK.
I was listening to the Team 1200 commentary last night in my hotel room and woke up the two adjoining rooms celebrating the "good goal" call on Zibanejad's goal. This prompted calls through the walls to "shut the fuck up, its gone 2am for Christ's sake". Conacher's goal celebration was even loader and prompted a visit from the hotel manager telling me that I would be evicted if he received any more complaints.....and so to overtime......Turris pots the winner, I am thus forced to run from the room, down 3 flights of stairs, through the hotel lobby, into the street and release an almightly yell of pure delight and numerous fist pumps......this attracted the attention of the passing police car who wanted to know what I was doing in the street only wearing PJ's. The miserable sod wasn't interested in partaking in any "high 5's" and advised me to simply "grow up and go back to bed"
These playoff's are killing my sleep pattern and I'm now seriously worried how I'll cope with 0300 face-offs when I go to the UAE on 21st May for 3 weeks work.........wouldn't change the NHL playoff's for anything.
