It’s late, I have to get up early, and I’m completely spent. But I just had to mark the occasion here because I just came from the best hockey game I ever saw in my life.

Mike Modano’s tribute game was nothing short of magic. My throat is hoarse from screaming, my hands are swollen and sore from clapping, and my eyes are red from crying.

There will never be another one like him.

Dallas 2, Flames 3 (OT) 11/04/09

That would be what I call crushing. A crushing loss.

It’s depressing when they lose like that. It’s infuriating when they suck, but it’s downright depressing when they play a great game, finally break through the goalie that’s playing out of his mind, get 40 shots, then give up a tying goal with seconds left in regulation and lose it in OT on a bogus call.

I hate the stupid over-the-glass penalty anyway. It’s stupid even when a player actually commits it. Unlike Nick Grossman, who didn’t commit that penalty.

Still, it shouldn’t have gotten to overtime. They only had to keep it out of the net for 49 more seconds and everything would have been fine. In my mind I was blaming Mike Ribeiro for coughing it up behind the net on a simple play, but I went back and looked and he was, technically, on the bench when the Flames scored the tying goal.

I’ve decided to finally start a blog, surely to abandon it after the third post.

I plan to ramble incoherently about the Dallas Stars, NHL hockey, and anything even remotely related to those things.  I am notoriously lazy and easily intimidated by the prospect of having to come up with anything creative.  So I wouldn’t expect anything too great. 

I will also try not to be quite so self-defeating, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on that one, either.

I’ve been lurking in some really great blogs for a couple of years now. Covered In Oil and Battle of California got me going in the hockey blogosphere. They never even knew I was there. But then Earl Sleek from BoC linked me to Interchangeable Parts and I was off. I’ve been spamming poor Schnookie and Pookie with comments ever since.

I regularly read what seems like hundreds of great blogs. I’ll be adding them to my blogroll a little at a time. (See above where I talk about my laziness.)

So, I thought it would be fun to try it myself. I can vent my frustrations with the lack of hockey talk in my neck of the woods and save my friends and family from having to listen to it.
