Pre-game Calm

Hiroshi Sugimoto - November 6, 2008 - February 14, 2009 - Gagosian Gallery

My stomach was all butterflies earlier today. Now I'm at peace with the day. Call it the calm before the storm when the Canadian teens who carry all my hopes and dreams go up against some Russian teens to determine world hockey dominance. I really shouldn't give so much responsibility to a bunch of kids. I should know better.

Maybe, I should have made a bet with Mitchel on the score. I lost last time. In the words of President George W. Bush, "Fool me once shame on me, fool me twice... won't git fooled again."

UPDATE: I shoulda know'd better. That gut punch of a loss is haunting me. I vow to avoid Canadian media for the next 48 hours, assuming that's how long it will take to fall out of the news cycle.
