Nothing really aside time with my girlfriend. She's a huge Sabres fan and understands I want to watch the games alone, and when the Rangers lose she gives me a half an hour to cool down and try to get over the game
Student life has been easy, only had two finals and those are both done...a week until graduation so I'm just hanging around here until then.
I telecommute for work on my own time, so no issues there either (doesn't hurt that I work for Mitch Beck )
So really, sanity. And last year it was my liver after the Caps eliminated us, dumbest thing I've ever done...but at the time it seemed reasonable
I know if I had work though I'd be switching schedules constantly, and I'd wake up any time night or day to take in the full game live.
Was at my fraternity's alumni weekend last weekend and we had a huge day party and me and a few other die hards sat inside the house and watched the game while everyone was in the yard. Ahaha I didn't give a **** though really
Sleep.... plenty of 12:30am starts throughout the season has changed my sleeping pattern for the playoffs so now I have no problem with 2/3 hours of sleep game nights.
I also - like many others - have started to doubt my own sanity. Coming from a country where field hockey has more coverage than ice hockey, I repeatedly try to get my friends hyped about it all with little to no success. The only other person at my school who is into hockey is my biology lab partner and she supports the Canadiens and Pittsburgh - needless to say our hockey talk is limited at the moment
Field hockey? Isn't that for girls? Not trying to insult the sport, but in my high school it was a female sport and lacrosse was the male version.
I work m-f 8-4:30. Weather hasn't been very good here. Weekend Rangers are something I look forward too. If we go deeper i'll be giving up some nice rides (motorcycle) or (knock on wood) we go really further, i'll have to put off getting the jet ski set up for the season.
