They are the Champions!
That’s one HELL of a Watermelon!!!
They had paid their dues.
Anybody who thinks the watermelon you steal is tastier than the one you grow – and EARN yourself – is a damn fool. A sad fool.
It took 44 years of Washington Capitals heartbreak, agony, choking, falling, fruitless failure to make this Stanley Cup the tastiest we’ve seen in a looong time.
And it wasn’t done with talent or skill. That’s a mere part of the what’s needed. It was done with undisputed HEART, intensity, focus and desire. The Caps simply decided they would outwork, out check, out hustle, out skate their opponents. It was grinding, brutal, blood sweat and tears hockey – through 4 Series – on every shift – that won the day.
Some sport spectacles are so spectacular – so special – that they truly do bring you out of your seat. And you’re glad – and envious – for what you have witnessed. THIS was one of those.
About 30 teams start out every year – their goal is to win this prize The Stanley Cup – often said to be the hardest achievement in Pro Sport.
Only one will prevail. And it will never be handed over easily.
This was one for the ages.
Congratulations to the Washington Capitals.
and especially that Russian guy, Alexander Ovechkin.
