How much do I want this team to make the playoffs? Enough to sacrifice, my friends. Enough to give up the one thing that makes me happy, good beer. In an effort to motivate the supremely-talented but often scoreless Martin Havlat, I am staging a beer strike. Until Havlat scores I will not consume a single beer. Hopefully this will happen sooner rather than later.
On a side note, Vancouver's in town and all indications are that the Sedin twins are staying in the honeymoon suite at the Saint Paul Hotel. They like to make their trips to Minnesota into romantic getaways.
