The Glad I'm Tired Today GDT Roll Call

I was living in California in the late 1990's when the Blues played the Kings in the first round of the playoffs. I had an early morning the next day and the Blues were getting clobbered 4-1 late in the game. For whatever reason, I decided to not go to bed, but instead stuck it out to watch the end of the game.

Of course, Geoff Courtnall wiped out the Kings' goalie with a flying elbow and subsequently took a beating from Sean O'Donnell that gave the Blues a five minute power play.

The next day, a fellow Blues fan in Southern California saw me and said, "How about that game last night?" When I said, "I know, how great was that?" he was pretty bummed. He had gone the other way and hit the rack, missing the improbable end of the game. In an era before internet video and the NHL Network, he was doubly screwed.

Since then, I never give up early and I always hang on to the very end. Usually it's a waste of time. But every now and then I get rewarded with a David Backes in Boston or a Carlo Colaiacovo in San Jose.

But enough about me. Let's talk about you. Over 50 users made over 1,500 comments last night, and that doesn't even count the pre-party in the Road Music story or the many comments some of you contributed to the game thread over at Fear The Fin. Nice work everyone.
