Today, hockey returned to television. It was only one game in the rookie tournament--hardly NHL quality, but hockey nonetheless. I have been looking forward to this the whole summer. I know I shouldn't wish the tail end of summer away, but I can't help it. I am excited to watch hockey again.
I am excited to be overly optimistic about my team's fortunes. I am ready to dissect every play and referee call. I ready to fantasize about unrealistic trades. I am ready to live and die with every win and loss.
Welcome back hockey, let's get the season started.
