Hockey season is underway once again. Wednesday, October 4th was the start of the NHL season, and what a treat it is to have the greatest sport on Earth starting up once again. This is a beautiful time of the year, because in just another week we will have four sports going on at the same time: playoff baseball, football, hockey, and basketball.
Seeing as baseball is going to end in a blink of an eye, and no one actually cares about the NBA since they are just a glorified telenovela, the only sports really on are football and hockey. What is even better about that is once you get tired of Tom Brady toying with other teams you can flip to hockey! And once you’re sick of Kane shredding defenses, or Crosby’s wizardry, you can flip back to Alex Smith’s breakout season. And if you are truly desperate, because the real action comes at the end of the football and hockey seasons, you can flip to Lebron crying over Kyrie, or whatever Lebron cries about.
But regardless of all that I’m happy hockey is back on. Now I have the ability to watch the Capitals fail miserably in their pursuit of the cup once again. I’ll be a stark raving lunatic watching them make it to the playoffs and lose it all early again, or completely unravel due to the shambles that are left after being raped by free agency. Either way I’ll be drunk and more than likely getting myself into trouble over this. But damn am I glad hockey is back.
