It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
It's hockey playoff season. Every night of the week there's ice on the television. It would be even better if it didn't feel like winter in Los Angeles outside as well -- but I'll take it any way I can get it. I can remember during one Stanley Cup final game a few years ago when the Red Wings were playing, we were having a heatwave in Los Angeles. I was watching a game from the East Coast that went into triple overtime. It was 11:00pm on the west coast and I was in my jammies eating frozen orange popsicles to stay cool while I kept up with the game. At that time, the only room I had in the house that was air conditioned was the bedroom. Now that I've got central air...I don't need it so much. Let's hope that all the teams I cheering for...Red Wings, Kings and Bruins...successfully wrap up the first round of the playoffs this weekend. There's nothing as much fun as playoff hockey!
