C-A-P-S CAPS CAPS CAPS!
April 22, 2008
We interrupt the Gulfport volunteering trip report to expound on the amazing, beautiful, heartstopping comeback by my Cardiac Caps to tie the first-round playoff series with the F(in)lyers. Joe and I were worried at the end of period 1 when our boys behind by two, but we kept our fingers crossed and rubbed the red rabbit's foot for luck.
And then... magic. First, Babyface Backstrom, then Sasha Semin, and then Ovie smashed through his scoring malaise and executed a picture perfect breakaway to put the team up by one goal. And then... Ovie smashed a slapshot past Martin Biron to seal the deal and force Game 7 here at home!
Joe leapt like a gazelle around the living room. Had he had an armful of flowers, he would have strewn them hither and yon.
