Absurd thoughts at midnight watching hockey…

Reliving a 4th quarter awakening in Philadelphia

Perhaps, in the long run, the Ravens will benefit from the late letdown on both sides of the ball in an escape and narrow victory over the Eagles.

What’s so great about The Constitution of the United States?

It was written back in 1789 so none of us were there but with many interpretations and "Originalists" now entering the discussion during the rushed Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett, we thought a civics course with our scholar Todd Schuler was in order.

Only the Stanley Final going two overtimes could keep me and the entire country of Canada up half of the night.

And there’s no end in sight…

Zetterberg? Crosby? Malkin? Someone, anyone – SCORE, please!

Hockey at this level, with this kind of passion and want is what it’s all about, being a sports fan. It’s what makes the Stanley Cup finals so special.

Sure, I could fall asleep on it (and it feels like hours ago since Adam Jones hit that ball over Jacoby Ellsbury’s head), but I might miss the raising and kissing of the Cup. I don’t think I’ve missed a live Cup raising in over 20 years. (C’mon, have you missed a Super Bowl in the last 20 years? Well that’s what the Cup raising night is like for me.)

Every time Detroit touches the puck it’s exciting. And Pittsburgh is playing like they mean it after squandering a 2-0 lead and then scoring late to press overtime and stave off elimination. The Penguins are more like cats than like birds.

If they somehow get this series back to Pittsburgh, they should be commended. I’ve written them off three times already in this series (twice tonight alone!). But here they are battling at midnight amidst the “Let’s Go Red Wings” chants at the Joe.

Fleury just made a dramatic 50th save of the game.

This is a crazy game!

Another late night memory with hockey in another spring.

But I can’t fall asleep. A Detroit goal here would set off another biblical “Hockeytown” celebration. The fans are primed.

They just need a goal.

If this goes to a third overtime, I’m gonna take a nap…
