Why do the results of last night’s game make me happy?
1) Because I harbour an easterner’s anti-Alberta bias and because I nurture the hope that some heartbroken Flames fan will jump Timo.
2) Because the Sharks are the biggest chokers in sports and because I have a former lady friend in northern California whose heart was broken by watching San Jose tank … again.
Hey, call me petty and childish but there you have it.
Plus I’m starting to really like the Blackhawks. The good hockey fans in the great city of Chicago deserve to see their renewed faith rewarded by a decent run.
Unless they get salary knee-capped, the ‘Hawks are going to be very good for a long time.
