So I went to bed last night instead of watching the 3rd period and now I'm getting some grief abowt it. What's the big deal. Why are they scheduling 9pm start times on Sundays anyhoo? Didn't they know I had an early dental appointment? It was just a cleaning, but dental hygiene cannot be sacrificed for a non-playoff late Sunday night game. And on top of that, I would've stayed up if the Wild showed any signs of life in those first two periods, but they looked very lethargic. No sense wasting sleep time watching Martin Skoula turn the puck over again and again and again.
Like the Wild, I promise better effort when the playoffs roll around. I wonder how many Canucks fans with dentist appointments (*) would've stayed up if they had such a late starting time. Not too many, I promise you that.
(*) Yes, I'm avoiding the obvious Canadian health care system joke here. Taking the higher ground I am.
