Here we are on the eve of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and everyone has some degree of anticipation.
The 16 teams involved all think they have a shot of lifting the mug in a couple of months. Well maybe not Pittsburgh, they did their best and almost backed out of the post season.
The referees who have qualified for the playoffs have to perform because the Zebra herd dwindles as the spring blooms toward summer.
Of course the fans are invested. Remember a year ago. The BC unfaithful bailed on the Torts and Gillis edition of the club by the time Ryan Kesler was shooting Jagr in Sochi. Jagermeister not Jaromir. It was so bad the Aquilinis gutted Gillis the last week of the season.
Captain Trevor was brought in to right the ship. A 101 point regular season and second place in the division is a nice start with a spot in the sweet 16.
Despite some trepidation and a definite show us what you’ve got mantra,
It appears this team is rebuilding the fan base.
The ‘Nucks are welcoming back the jaded, the disappointed, and the haters. They can all hop on the 2015 bandwagon.
Remember, with cheaper playoff tickets!
The hype is building, by this time tomorrow all the humans involved will have a heightened sense of being. They might be a touch tingly, antsy, and anxious.
Ahh its playoff anticipation.
