I wish I knew that feeling.



I know this feeling a lot.
Yay Blues!

Eat shit Boston!

*sigh* As do I…

But at least the Blues did us Canucks fans a real solid last night and got revenge for 2011 by beating the Bruins in a Stanley Cup Final Game 7 on their home ice to spoil the party in front of THEIR fans for a change. Haha…! And we even got to see this wonderful image that I thought I would never see - humility by the rat:




(Oh yeah, that feels SO good...)

(I also love how some Canuck fans are using that image of Brad Marchand crying as their new wallpaper or screensaver now, lol. I’m not personally going to go THAT far myself (because karma), but it’s still pretty funny to hear about.)

Anyway, I still can’t believe that I live in a timeline now where the St. Louis Blues and Washington Capitals have both won a Stanley Cup in back-to-back years whereas, two years ago, both of these franchises were the walking definition of chokers and losers. So I’m so happy for both cities that they get to finally enjoy some of that sweet, sweet success that I hope, one day, my home team will be able to enjoy.

- And speaking of enjoyment:



It may have taken until the final game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs to exert your supposive dominance, but, congratulations, Addit: you get to share the dubious honor of worst (along with GreatRedSpirit) as you earn yourself the Eugene Melynk Award, where, apparently, in the great words of the Eugene Melynk, “we’re still a team” (…whatever that means.)

And now that Kory doesn’t have to share his first place prize with anybody but himself (sorry Shinan), his name will forever be now etched into the rafters as one of our champions (well...unless RMN happens to shut down any time soon, lol):



And now that the Stanley Cup has been handed out, I’ll Liberty know to give us all of our achievements whenever she stops playing the original Breath Of Fire for a minute.

And now that the Stanley Cup Playoffs have finally commenced after all this time wasted - I leave you with this St. Louis Blues fan dancin':



(*shock* Look at him go!)
Welcome to the bottom Addit!

Cool, Blues are my favourite team anyway. Also second tied place, that's not bad.
