Whose young kids bought this jersey for her because
they got talked into it by the twenty-something guy
who works at the sports store at the Sawgrass Mall,
who wanted to move some inventory before Christmas,
and saw that the kids were gullible.
So now, for a few months at least, she'll wear it
when she goes to the Mall or picks them up after
practice, just so her kids don't know that she
really doesn't like it.
After all, whoever heard of a cat without whiskers?
Then it goes into the closet for a few years!
So, when did Hawaii get an NHL team? LOL!
Just when you thought there was no other way
left for the woe-begone, star-crossed
Florida Panthers to ruin a great sport...

orientation is called, not surprisingly,
It's written with a lot of insight and understanding
in the ways of the Canadiens and their fans,
who while not "long-suffering" like Cubs and
Red Sox fans, still have an obvious anxious gene
that is not found in quite so many of the devout
fans of other sports teams, and NHL teams in
It's sort of like how Dolphin fans like me felt in
'75 and '76, wondering what had happened to
the methodical planning and execution they'd
become used to, suddenly seeing -more often

the Steelers and Raiders, and seeing something
unrecognizable in the aqua, orange and white
