No Stanley Cup for Canada...

Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Edmonton-- The Oilers Have lost out.

Leslie has me watching the hockey games now. I routed for the Calgary Flames when ever I could see a game, which was not often since I no longer get CBC . And the when the Edmonton Oilers made it into the playoffs, and they were broadcast, I watched the games. I have no clue what the rules to the game are, but I am catching on. I still am not sure why there was no Goalie at the Oilers net when the Hurricanes shot that 3rd puck into the goal. They kept talking about the empty net, so I suppose there was a good reason for it, ??????

So The Oilers did not win the Stanley Cup although they gave it a good shot! They went farther than anyone expected, and to take nothing away from South Carolina, No one on that team had ever been in a Stanley Cup so they played good too.

I hear that Everett has a Minor League Hockey team called the Silverbacks or the Grizzlies or something like that. I may have to make my SIL take me to a game or two.

The sun was out all bright and warm, but it was accompanied by a bitting cold wind. I swear it almost felt like Fall. I Think If it is this nice tomorrow I will try to get the front lawn mowed again. Maybe even the back one too. Gotta keep at it this time of the year.

Hope you all are having a good week.
