Around 3pm I get a text from a friend asking me if I wanted to go to Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals with her father in law. I'll probably admit it to her one day if she doesn't read this but I immediately came down with a stupid amount of anxiety for some strange reason and was too scared to go. I don't know maybe my fear of losing in a big game or something or the fact that I was gonna see my team in a championship game for the 1st time in my life.
I convinced myself to say yes because I know I would regret it for the rest of my life. Fear is a bitch. It was a fun conversation with the old man. Caught up, talked Caps, enjoyed the train ride. A season ticket holder who has been loyal probably longer than I was alive.
I was losing my shit and tried desperately not to embarrass him despite him saying for me to "Let that energy out it's the playoffs." Needless to say we won that game and the rest is history.
The Washington Capitals became the Stanley Cup Champions
Side Note: My 1st time in the 100s and you don't truly realize how hard they hit til you're there MY GOD.
