I was glad that the Saints won, but sad that the Jets lost. I think that losing Shonn Greene made the all the difference in their second half.
warning - sports mom update ahead
We had an emotional hockey weekend. Our team went undefeated in the round-robin, but due to an interesting formula applied to goals for and goals against, we ended up as the second seed. Which placed us in the Semis against the only other US team in the tournament...our local rivals!
But what a game it was! We scored first and the crowd just went nuts. They tied it up in the second and we battled back and forth during the 3rd. My Jake actually scored a goal in the third, but the refs waved it off, claiming a crease violation by one of our other players. It went into 2 over time periods, first 4 minutes of 4-4 and then 3 minutes of 3-3, then the shootout. Which we lost. It was a heartbreaking game, you hate to see it come down to that, but what a tremendous game it was - hard to complain about that.
Jake played one of his best games ever. He was so into it. When coming off the bench for the faceoff, he would turn to us and whoop his arms in the air to get the cheers going. Choked me up every time. God, I love that kid.
