Sid > everyone

I was never planning on blogging the Olympics because I knew it would be a huge undertaking that I wouln't be able to handle especially since I would miss most of the games due to tape delay and the fact that they were being played while I was at work. I didn't want to blog about the games way late so I just decided not to. I'm not going to write up a huge recap right now either. I just want to say that I thought the US team looked really strong this entire tourney and think they did a good job. They should be proud to say they made it to the Gold Medal game and played well. It was a tight and low-scoring game, just like I thought it would be. Be proud you medalled at all, because Russia is really kicking themselves right now. They had the talent, they just screwed up and ended up playing Canada earlier than they thought they would. As much as I hate hate hate Patrick Kane, he scored a good amount of goals over the course of the Olympics.. more than Sid, but hey, Sid is always there. He's not a flashy player, he stays in the trenches and plays the puck to teammates. Sid is there when it matters, like in overtime during the Gold Medal game to score the game winning goal. Yeah.

I am so happy the Olympics are over and we get to return to NHL games, where players fight and Mike Rupp scores hat tricks. I've missed Billy G's wisdom, Max Talbot's bad hands, Staalsy's shorties, Feds' rosy red cheeks, TK's energy, Kris Letang's sex hair, and MAF's shirtless post-game interviews in the locker room after a win. I can't wait to have Sid and Geno be reunited as the two-headed monster. I look forward to having Brooks dish out free candy to dirty Flyer players and Gonchar's wicked slapshot speed past Henrik Lundqvist on Thursday. I'm ready to have all five of our Olympians home in Pittsburgh and inside the Igloo.

Of course, I know the trade deadline Olympic freeze ends tonight and could bring hell on earth tomorrow. I hope Shero doesn't do anything completely crazy and give me a heart attack at work. Please, I don't want to die on the floor of my cubicle all alone in a building that has really shitty lighting and psychos.

A final note: I am very proud of how all our boys played in these games, but especially Sidney. He is our captain. I am so proud he wears the black and gold. We love you, Sid.

Go get 'em Tuesday!
