Spring Cold: A Sonnet, More Or Less

Post Playoffs Love List

I'm still a little sad that my Capitals got beat down by the Team Who Shall Not Be Named on Wednesday, but there are many many things that I'm loving this Friday.

  • I love my team and I love my fellow fans. When two minutes remained in the game and it was clear that a comeback was not in the cards, the entire crowd rose and gave the team a standing ovation for the rest of regulation, through the traditional team handshake, and through the team's raised-stick salute to the fans. It was such a good season, so full of great games. I admit that I got a wee bit misty. See you in the fall, boys!
  • I love that it is 8:00 at night and it is still light outside.
  • I love New York in June, how about you?
  • I love frozen custard, vanilla with chocolate sprinkles.
  • I love azaleas in full bloom, especially when they're big and wild rather than trimmed and sculpted.
  • I love Sean Connery as James Bond.
  • I love penne with sausage.
  • I love turning off the alarm clock when I go to bed on Friday night.
  • I love getting checks in the mail.
  • I love not having to travel for the foreseeable future.
  • I love a Gershwin tune; how about you?
  • I love - "TED" stands for "Technology, Entertainment, Design." The videos on the site are quite wonderful, ranging from scientific inventions, to brilliantly illustrated research on social issues, to witty talks, to wonderful music. Check this one out and go into your weekend smiling.
