Transient Glory

I was watching TV the other night with the family and a hockey commercial came on featuring this picture:



I said something to the effect of, "Ah man! That's just wrong! That should have been Chris Pronger! Uhhh.... maybe ... Ryan Smith!"

I was just bugging Josh, but it reminded me that human glory is really hollow. No star players are permanent and neither Carolina or Edmonton made the post season this year.

Just so you don't think I'm more spiritual than I am, I must finish this by saying, "There's always next year!"

Too bad about Vancouver. Go Ottawa!

If not, Go Buffalo! They're almost a Canadian team.

I'm writing this from Niagara-on-the-Lake, about a 30 minute drive away from HSBC Arena - home of the Sabres.

The atmosphere here is not near what it was in Calgary (04) or Edmonton (06). They are however up in arms over the apparent goal that didn't count last game.

That no-goal was robbery, no question.

Have a safe trip back to Sunny Alberta!

I think the same sort of thing happens in the church arena. One trying to out-do the other, and gloating in their success.
