Damn you, post-season! I am having a hard time saying anything for fear of being a jinx. Let’s try this…
How many Monday home games has Mike Green played this season? ONE.
Did the Caps win? YES.
Was it also his/my birthday? YES. (October 10, close enough.)
Were Gator and I there? OBVIOUSLY.
And now, what day is the Caps’ first home playoff game? (Hint: April 16.)
It doesn’t mean anything. There are two games in Boston to get through first and large parts of the Caps season have been held together with popsicle sticks and Scotch tape. But as Monday is Mike’s very own day of the week, it’s been a long time coming. Like a goal (October 22) or an assist (March 19). Mike hasn’t even taken a penalty since February 25. Something’s gotta give, right? A little help? Just pretend you have no idea what I’m talking about.
