I’m in tears, literally. I can’t believe my team lost. I am heartbroken.
My husband keeps reminding me that this is just a game, but I can’t help it — I had my heart and soul invested in this game.
I hate that Boston has won. They played dirty. The officials might just as well have been on their team roster. Injuring other players as a team strategy is a cheap strategy.
There is so much talent on the Canucks team — that’s undisputed. I can’t for the life of me understand what happened to their heart.
As much as I don’t like to buy in to conspiracy theories, I have to wonder if there isn’t something to the “Bettman wants the cup to say in the US” conspiracy. Boston being an ‘original six’ team and all, maybe that also had something to do with it. That’s the only thing I can think of that comes close to explaining what happened to their ability to shoot and score and play.
I will be behind the Canucks again next year. Despite that my hometown team are the Oilers. The Canucks are Canada’s team — they proved that making it into the finals. I only hope they get a run at the cup again next year.
I’m finally beginning to get over the tears. It is, in the end, as my husband tried telling me in the first minutes after our loss, just a game.
But what a game!
