Brendan Shanahan Rocks My World

In the NY Rangers season opener last night, Brendan Shanahan scored his 600th career goal. It was one of 2 he would score of the Rangers 5 goals, compared to the Capitals' 2. I'll wait while you do the math....


Yes. You got it! The Rangers have started the season with a win!!!!

The funny thing is that I was never a fan of the Red Wings. So, by extension, I was never a fan of Brendan Shanahan. But after seeing him kick a lot of Capital ass last night, I gotta tell ya-he has made a believer out of me. Shanahan in '08!

I know what some of you are thinking: how could I root against the Capitals? My old hometown team? Am I that quick to dismiss my old loyalties??

No, you idiot. I love DC, but I've NEVER liked the Capitals. I mean, I'd rather see them do well than say, the Devils (HATE the Devils)-but the Rangers are my team. I've been following them for almost 12 years now, and even when they stink up the joint I remain loyal.

So I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high for the coming season, but I can't help it. Wooo! We won one! This year's gonna be different! This year is the year we're gonna advance past Round 1 of the playoffs, and make it all the way to the Cup Finals! This is our year!!! For serious!!!!!!!

(Check back in 2 months, see how many exclamation points I'm still using.)
