After watching the Lightning lose miserably one too many times (and trust me, my tolerance for watching them lose has developed painfully high threshholds over time), I finally gave up and haven’t even checked their standings in quite a while. This explains why you have been spared from my endless hockey talk and Lightning posts.
Gary mentioned to me yesterday that he thought they were ranked pretty high, so I had to check.
*rubbing my eyes*
Wha…? Seriously? The Lightning are not only ranked 4th in the league, they are above the Detroit Red Wings! The only thing that detracts from my utter joy is that they are still below the Penguins, but hey, that concussion the Lightning dished out to Crosby a few weeks ago partially makes up for that.
