A little persepective.......

The Habs are playing Toronto tonight; they may or may not win. In the grand scheme of things does it really matter? I had to sit back and take a deep breath after the Habs lost to the Rangers the other night. Before the game started, I had sweaty palms and felt a little nauseous. Totally ridiculous. I have spent at least 15 minutes discussing the Habs with a work colleague daily for the past month. We’ve both come to the conclusion that we take this sport way too seriously. There is no value to it except the value WE chose to place on it. WE chose to emotionally invest in something that is meaningless. Seriously folks, the Habs not making the playoffs is not earth shattering or life changing in any way. Some people spend their whole day every day on blogging sites commiserating with one another on all things Habs. Can you imagine if they collectively spent a quarter of that time channeling thoughts and ideas about something useful? We could have cured cancer by now, or at the very least have stopped the spread of HIV in Africa. I’ve decided to come back down to earth, focus on things that really matter (in my case a career change is in order) and enjoy hockey for what it really is, an exciting and very entertaining GAME.
