I feel somewhat incapable of writing a preview of the Kings-Ducks series.
We’ve been waiting for this series to happen for far too long. I’m positively giddy with excitement.
This isn’t a “Freeway Face-Off”. This is a city-burning match-up. More than the Western Conference Finals are at stake here. Bragging rights for an indeterminable amount of time are on the line. Both teams have won a Cup now, this is the last domino to fall and we don’t know if they will meet again in the playoffs next year or in another 20.
Now… the main reason I can’t bring myself to write a preview, or any game articles for that matter, is my renown superstition.
There is a really stinky chevy logo white Kings shirt sitting on my chair that says I’m a little crazy. I was planning to sell a car a week ago… until I drove my new car during game 3. For the time being, I can’t sell it.
And I can’t write about the games. I screwed up with the prayers and didn’t do one for game one against San Jose. After that, it was too late and the hockey gods weren’t having it. So I stopped after game 3. The rest, is quite literally, (minus my involvement) history.
I’ll put the question to you. What do you value more, my writing or my superstition?
Don’t think I also don’t know that one of you isn’t allowed to put on underwear.
So, who’s going to every game this series? This is why we have credit cards, people. I usually condone financial prudence. Fuck that.
