Sacrifice? Nothing much besides staying up until 4-5 am 60-70 games per season + every PO game. Naps have become good friends of mine the last years!

Got to say i really enjoy one of these early games every once in a while though. Nice to go to bed before the sun rises, hehe

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.

of course ... actually since I started growing mine (prior to the playoffs) the Rangers have played very well. I guess I shouldn't shave.

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

Mostly sleep. I start work at 8am and have to get up at 6.30am. Last game i got 15 minutes of sleep since the game was over 6.15am.

I am growing a play-off beard! Not really a tradition yet, it's the first time I am doing this.

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.

I think men also play it but to a lesser extent. But yeah your point is still valid - I cannot understand why ice hockey gets such little coverage in some parts of the world in comparison to others

Grades....and a few parties. But at the end of the day it is worth it.

Also my blood pressure, and my voice.
