I have no idea what the outcome of the Denver/Dallas game three is going to be, but I do have a couple observations:
1. Man, I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again, but Jake Schroeder sure can sing the national anthem. I’m the type that stands, places his hand over his heart, and can get a little misty when I hear the “Star Spangled Banner.” It’s a tough song, but when it’s done well it soars; Jake makes you feel the song
I know nothing about his politics, but I tend to think that anyone who can sing our anthem with his level of conviction must care deeply about his community. For that reason, I wish him luck in his fledgling political career.
2. What a fiery pace to this game. Both teams are skating, hitting, and handling the puck well. This should be fun.
3. It is awfully nice to watch your team score the first goal of the game. On the other hand, it’s a little painful to watch them give up a short-handed goal a few minutes later.
Yep, this is going to be a good one.
