    OMG it's ridiculous how excited we are at my house! The lockout is finally over and hockey starts SATURDAY!! GO HABS GO!!! My hub can hardly stand it lol He had me call Charter to order the NHL center ice package as soon as they announced the deal. The girl laughed at me and said she was pretty sure I was the first one to order it, and she needed to get a supervisor because the codes weren't up yet. I was embarrassed, my hub was proud lol

    Who else is suffering from hockey-deprivation? Any fellow Habs fans out there? (@fatchickonabike @french_mom ?) Am I the only one who's can't wait for hockey to start back up?!

    I hate to sound all unpatriotic, but no. Not particularly excited to see pro hockey! Lol. The Oilers will do what they always do, storm out of the gate and wilt two months in. Oh...but we get first draft pick! Woo! Fuck.

    But you go on with your bad self!

    @Curious fair enough- if my team was the Oilers I wouldn't be that excited either >:)  J/K! (mostly lol)  And with your budding hockey star, you probably get your fill of hockey lol

    Yeah I've been doing hockey since October! Lol. Her games are ten times more exciting than the real thing. 

    @Albertamom, @Dreamer, @zombiemom? What are the Oilers chances this year?

    The who????? @Curious   lol

    I honestly dont give a flying fuck.  I think they are all over paid to play a game. Its a GAME. And they hold out for more money?  Meh...

    Ive never been a huge hockey fan..... but this has made me even less so.
    There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other. Which one are you?

    @Dreamer that's a pretty common sentiment around here (I'm not in Montreal anymore) and for awhile, I almost thought my hub would give up but... he'll never give up on his wife, his kids, or his Habs. It's like breathing for him lol Our son's middle name is Rocket, after Rocket Richard (the priest was so impressed at his baptism lol)

    Ummm no , sorry but not in a hockey town lol. I like the sport and will watch it from time to time , it's better than Football IMO. Have actually been to a few games in person ! We rarely get snow here. Now I am an odd one , I love curling !!! No one anywhere near here does , most people don't even know what it is. Lol. I get my curling fix every 4 years during the winter Olympics !!!

    I know what curling is, I once had an online friend that was a member of a team they called the Swishing Bitches. I think that was it, She was the BOMB.

Every year we mock each other in text back and forth when our respective teams lose (I am a bit more mockable, ok..) and when they play each other??? Oh it is ON and CRACKIN!!!

    I can't believe this, but once driving thru the parking lot at the mall, during playoffs, some dude in a Wings jersey. DD was pretty little and before anyone could say not to, she whizzed her window down and shouted "REDWINGS STINK!!!!!!!". We had to zoom away in hysterics.

    @purpleflowers, once the Leafs are out (haha, laugh some more, Leafs haters) Detroit is my team!
    The only exception is if they're against a Canadian team in the finals, then I'll root for the Canadian team. Unless its Montreal of course, I do have some dignity.

    I couldn't care less if all professional sports dropped off the face of the earth, personally, but DH is a hockey fan. He's still pissed off about the lockout, though, and says he doesn't care that hockey's back. We'll see if that's actually true.

    Lol, okay, I admit, I snorted audibly at that last one, @sahm1020. It is good, I'll give it that.

    You'll also be happy to know there is a serious dearth of witty anti-Habs memes. I'll admit defeat now, you will on Saturday. :D
