Let’s just get it out of the way right from the beginning. There is no Perfect Moment today. Of course there is one, but it just cannot rise out of the gloom that my feelings are trapped in. Am I being melodramatic? Yeah, just a little.
I was rooting for the Toronto Maple Leafs in this years’ playoffs and sadly, they were eliminated tonight. Their playoffs are over and my interest in watching the rest of them has dropped off considerably. I am very disappointed.
Some might argue that I shouldn’t put so much of my emotion in rooting for sports or individual athletes and that my time would be better spent on other endeavours. While that may be someone’s opinion, it just doesn’t ring true for me. We all need heroes. We all need a place to put that rooting energy. I’ve lost it for many sports, but hockey still holds my interest.
