First: The Stanley Cup Final.
For those of you who were cheering for Vancouver- I know your pain friends. Watching Tampa win in 2004 was not fun. And next year, every time you watch Hockey Night in Canada, you will have to watch Chara hoist the cup in the opening. You might have to look away.
I was cheering for Boston. As a Flames fan, I just couldn't cheer for Vancouver....AND my grandfather was a huge Bruins fan. He and my mum had a bottle of wine riding on the Montreal-Boston series. When we drank that bottle of wine at his memorial service, I silently toasted to the Bruins winning the cup. Then not so silently, my sister and I rooted for the Bruins for the rest of the playoffs. Yeah, it's just hockey- but I smiled for him last night.
Second: Stanley Cup Aftermath
I'm not going to preach about this- but rather try to make a slight joke. Can you imagine calling your insurance company this morning if you're one of those poor Vancouverites who had their car burned? -Hi...I'd like to make an insurance claim...there was a fire in my car.
-Oh dear sir, are you ok? Were you in an accident?"
-Nope...it was parked.
-Parked sir? Where was it parked??
Third: The Race
Thank you for all of your comments. It seems you were all thinking just the same way I was leaning- toward the Montreal race. So it is decided. Night race (yaaaay) and Montreal half-marathon here I come!
And just to make you laugh- here's a picture of my sister and I when we were really young. And yes, I look like a boy.
