Depressed is a big word.. but.. I am trying to put it at the back of my mind and forget it ever happened.
What about you guys?
It's annoying that a goon team won the cup.
On the plus side, the Habs are still moving forward.
But the best way to avoid being depressed is to have lots of other good things going on in your life. Don't be too obsessed with hockey or any particular popular culture thingimajig man, you'll have a life of high highs and low lows.
In retrospect, other than the Habs winning the Cup it was probably the best thing that could have happened to me. I've seen my most hated rival win the Cup... And what? I still like my team, I'm still excited about hockey, very excited about the future.
I've seen the worst and survived. It only gets better.
I've struggled through all the steps of grief and depression following the Bruins win... I've gone from denial, to pain, then anger... I'm at the acceptance stage. Looking forward to kick the **** out of them next year.
I've alcool destroyed all the brain cells responsible for this memory. I only have a vague recollection of the last few moments of the SC final now. In fact, to me it didn't really happen, as far as I know, it ended in a tie.
You should be HAPPY! Vancouver is a much bigger punk team than the Bruins; you just don't get to see them much so you don't realize. Kesler, Burrows, Bieksa, Luongo, Vigneault, Rome, Lapierre, Torres (when he was there)....the list goes on and on and on. Marchand, Chara and Lucic would seem like child's play in comparison.
There are upsides to the Bruins win...
1) Will fuel the rivalry we have with them.
2) Probably better for the NHL that a big market US team won.
3) Puts alot more pressure on Habs mgmt to ice a Cup competive right now.
