What kind of CrAP Was That?

BCO was doing some yard work and missed the first period of Caps vs Pens game 7. No biggie, I thought to myself, it will be a tight one all game.

I get in 2-notta, Pens. Not good but hardly over, right?

28 seconds into Period 2, make that 3-0, Pens. Damn. Then 4-0 and the BCO relents to the 3 year old and puts on Scooby Doo and enjoys a Belgian Golden Strong Ale while a stoned Shaggy and Scooby get chased by a malfunctioning robot.

Checking back in 30 mins later, not any better but the Caps did get some scratch on the board, but by now it's all but academic.

I knew it was over when Joseph Theodore replaced Simeon Varlamov in goal during the 2nd. Not a good game for Varlamov to stop standing on his head. To be fair, it wasn't all his fault from little I saw the Caps D was absolute ass ... again.

Alex Ovechkin did score a goal, giving him 15 pts in the series, which hasn't been done since 1995. Guessing even AO doesn't feel great doing so. On offense he was a 1 man show for the series, more times than not and Varlamov covered up for a shitty defense. The deeper, more consistent team won, but AO will have some sleepless summer nights fo' sho'.

The Caps have a great future, but it is apparent they need a few more pieces to make a run at Lord Stanley's Cup. I would guess they won't stand still, even in Ted keeps losing money on the franchise.

Sigh on a personal note, I did not make a hockey game this year. That sucks, but truth be told, I am glad I didn't go tonight either. My friends can't be happy, either shit faced and angry or depressing to be around. Sleep it off D and Rich, sleep it off.

Good news, next week is Memorial Day weekend.
