Well as it turns out, alcoholism is not the answer to winning the games that I am scheduled to recap. And by thinking it is, I will occasionally have to recap the morning after.
But can anyone really blame me? If this game didn't make you want to cry into your pillow, not even the death of Christopher Walkin would shake you.
That is the most generally adored celebrity I could think of.
If you survived this game and didn't die of heart related complications, then we respect you and are glad you are here with us today.
Because we are Pittsburgh hockey fans, we often get asked "The Sid Question."
To assure you that we mean it when we say we think he'll be back, here is our candid discussion of it that occured just now on gchat:
me: Jon keeps asking me and I just scream every time I hear that question
zoe: jon is asking an idiotic question
like we'll ever know
me: My default answer is "of course"
zoe: i feel like he HAS to
if he didn't believe he was going to play again he would have disappeared from the face of the earth by now
assumed a different name, taken up a humble trade
like woodworking in the mountains of slovakia
me: ....so, he'd be like Jesus
But in reverse
save the people, then do carpentry.
jesus in reverse
but hopefully it won't come to that.
Still, this game sucked.
But at least we're never losing again.
