By the time you read this, I will be on my way to the land of leadership and cheesesteaks. I hope I survive....
Three weeks. 21 days. There is ice at Mellon Arena. We're actually going to make it through this Stanley Cup summer without dying from hockey withdrawal. I'm really proud of us. I myself didn't know if I could do it. Brooks Laich is proud of us, too.

Brooks Laich plays for the Washington Capitals and I like that. Yeah, I like the Caps. There, I said it. Well, I like (most of) their players. However, I don't want them to win. I want Mike Green to score a lot of goals, but still lose. How that is supposed to work, I have no idea. In any case, I will be seeing Brooks Laich and his best buddy in two weeks. I'm trying to figure out how not to squeal too much. So far, I haven't gotten that one nailed down yet.
Brooks Laich is the peanut-butter to Mike Green's jelly. The milk to his cookies, the peas to his carrots. If you love the boy, you have to love his best friend, right? Right. Why? I said so, that's why.
We also like pretty boys and Brooks is one of those. We so picked the right sport to fall in love with.
You know what else? Brooks makes fun of Mike a lot, which I love. If there's one thing I love more than Mike Green, it's making fun of him. What can I say, the kid is an easy target. I'd like to buy Brooks a beer for making fun of Mike as much as he does.
