He Shoots.... He Scores!!!

Woo-Hoo...
I am absolutely exhausted beyond belief... ohhhh, how sweet it is. Went back to work today for the first time in a week. It felt good to feel some semblance of normalcy... whatever that might be. I went right from work to the rink to get ready for tonight's broadcast of the Cherokee game on local TV. I was more interested in talking with the coaches, with the players, to get involved with the whole playoff experience, than to worry about prep for the TV broadcast. I met my color analyst who was going to work the game with me. He was not happy because he wanted to get more info about the game from the net, but there wasn't a whole lot for him to draw from. He didn't realize that I worked with the team. When he started to complain, I just smiled and looked at him and chirped "don't worry, I got it all covered" He seemed to be relieved. I was soooo pumped about the game. We hadn't beaten Metro during the regular season. I really felt so anxious to play them. I felt strongly like we needed to come out with a sense of purpose and to take it to them. I was in the locker room when our assistant coach addressed the team. He gave a very emotional speech and had tears in his eyes... I was choked up a bit too. Well, it fired up the team as Toledo stomped on Metro with a 5-1 victory. The Cherokee came out and dominated from start to finish. It was awesome. Toledo has taken a 1-0 lead in the best of three series with game two set for Saturday night. If we show up like last night, I want to go crazy in delirious celebration so we can go to St. Louis... which would put us one series away from going to the National Championships in Philadelphia... One step at a time though. No getting ahead of ourselves. Let's start with a series clinching win Saturday night and go from there...

Well, I'm awake after only 3 hours of sleep. I had to come into work verrrrry early this morning. So now I am somewhat conscious. I've got my laptop with me but the server is down so I can't check my emails... arrrrgh! That makes me mad when beer.com does that. I like to check my emails frequently but when that wacky server of theirs goes down... it's annoying... I hope it will go back up soon...
