It's all fun and games...


until someone gets their teeth knocked out- and then it's hockey! This post has nothing on earth to do with books, vampires or reading so if you're not interested, click away until tomorrow. But if you are curious as to what besides a yummy vampire has me so excited, then read on.

I've been a dedicated fan for over a decade, supported my team through too many painful losing seasons to count, worried about the behind the scenes NHL nonsense...and today my reward has come. My Coyotes have finally made the playoffs!!! Game 1 begins tonight- Let's Go Coyotes!!

Question for the day is this: Besides books and vampires, an interest that we all share, what stirs your blood? Now, keep it PG because you never know who stops by!

*Note from me: We'll continue on with our regularly scheduled vampire talk tomorrow:)

Tynga said...

Yay Congrats for your team!

My team also made it, Montreal Canadiens and we are facing with the all Mighty Washington Capitals. I'm optimist and say Canadiens will win in 7 lol

Hockey and supernatural are my two other passions lol

Anna Dougherty said...

Tynga- That's tough! I live in DC and this city is all about the Capitals. We've only been to 1 game because the tickets are super expensive. Good Luck to your team! We play the Red Wings and nobody thinks we have a chance but I predict an upset:)

BTW Supernatural is on my list for shows I need to watch from the beginning. I've watched on and off- and really liked it- but I need to start from episode 1.

Tynga said...

Congrats on your team's win!
My team plays tonight, I'm gonna put my #1 fan gear at work tonight lol

Anna Dougherty said...

Thanks Tynga! And right back at you! I was so thrilled to watch the Caps get beaten- HA! For probably the first time in my life I will cheer on the Habs:)

Tynga said...

I made the happy dance at work hahaha
wow what a game, and my 2 favorite players scored <3 Camm and Pleky ^^

They said on the radio that the Caps lost only 5 games in regular time at washingtion in the entire season. wow.

LETS GO COYOTES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOOOWWWWLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!

Tynga said...

Yay Both our teams are still alive and kicking!

Anna Dougherty said...

Tynga- Good luck to your team tonight! I've never been a big Habs fan but I would like nothing more than seeing the Caps get eliminated. Well, except maybe having the Coyotes advance:)

Tynga said...

hehe yeah it's pretty much David vs Goliath.
Caps are 1st of the 16 teams in playoffs, and Habs are last..
but it's 2-0 habs after 1st period of match #6

I have faith!

Anna Dougherty said...

That was such an awesome game and I hope they come back to DC and kick the crap out of those snotty Caps. I love when the underdog wins!! Now let's cross our fingers that my Coyotes play as brilliantly and win game 7 tomorrow night.

Tynga said...

I'm crossing my fingers for you Anna! hopefully both our teams will make it into next round =D

Anna Dougherty said...

Congrats on the Habs advancing! I have to tell you, everyone in the DC area is in mourning. I've never seen so many shocked fans in my life. Hilarious:)

I even have a joke for you:

A penquin walks into a bar and says to the bartender, "Give me an Ovechkin."
The bartender asks,"What's that?"
The penquin says," It's a White Russian with no cup!"

Ha! Good Luck in round 2.

Tynga said...

HAHAHHA that's a good one!

We got our ass handed to us yesterday by the penguins. they scored 4 PP goals. Hopefully well do better tomorrow.

I'm in line to buy tickets atm ^^ Wish me luck!

Tynga said...

Well I managed to get tickets, but they are for game #6, so we need to win at least 2 games so I can go!

*cheering for the habs*

Anna Dougherty said...

I'm glad that you got tickets. I don't imagine that getting to game 6 will be too hard for them because they seem to play pretty well today. They have the confidence from beating the Pens in Pittsburgh, not easy to do, so I'm cheering for them. I love the underdog teams and not really a big Pens fan- if it's not my team then repeats are boring.

Tynga said...

OMG OMG! THere will be a game 6! The series is now tied 2-2 I'm so excited =D

Tynga said...

WOW! I had such a great time at the game, can'T believe we made it!! My favorite player (Cammalleri) scored two goals and he got a 2min standing ovation during the pubs. it was insane lol

Anna Dougherty said...

You sure picked a good game! So exciting that they forced game 7. If I was the Pens I would be scared. I'll be tuning in tomorrow night and crossing my fingers that the Habs advance.

Tynga said...

Thanks Anna!
We made it! i'm so excited!!!
I'm gonna try to get tickets from next round to ^^
WOW we beat Ovechkin then Crosby, whos gonna stop us? lol

Tynga said...

Well It's over =(
I'm sad we lost to the viscious Phillies. I really hate them.
But I'm proud of what my team accomplished ^^

*sits waiting until fall comes*

Anna Dougherty said...

I'm sad for you. But if it makes you feel any better at all this house will be cheering for the Blackhawks!

*sitting next to you, forehead resting on my knees- waiting for next season*
