The Swedes were hot tonight, bringing home a 4-0 win. Ja! Notice the ad in lower right hand corner of this poster. This is where Johan Franzen buys his Swedish Meatballs. Me too!
If you've been paying any attention here, you know that I am besotted with Don Cherry. I can't explain it, but I adore his flamboyant ways. The things that fly out of his mouth make me laugh my arse off as do his selection of suits. And as wished for by me, he did wear red tonight. Sort of. He wore a white suit with giant flowers placed sporadically all over like the fabric on your grandmother's patio furniture. But the tie? His tie was scarlet red. Thanks Don.
Between the first and second periods and after the game, I watched Coach's Corner and got my Don fix. Oh, I'm sorry. You didn't see Don tonight? You weren't blessed with growing up in Canada or the next best thing, a Canadian border town? You don't get Hockey Night in Canada on your set? Poor you. You were stuck watching the more staid commentary on Versus, minus the color. Weren't you? I bet, if you watched the game (I just presume that if you're reading this that you love the game as much as me) and were stuck with the mundane follow up, you were asleep before the Joe Louis Arena emptied.
Maybe you're Canadian and you didn't watch because there aren't any Canadian teams in the finals. I don't understand that though because there are Canadian men playing for these teams (and a plethora of Swedes too.) Surely, a Canadian has some vested interest in seeing the outcome. I would hope that with the Wings as one of the Original 6, you'd be rooting for them. Ahem, you don't see Penguins as one of the six. Do you?
