Dear Blues fans,
I, like you, am simply beside myself at how well the Blues are playing. The Blues are playing smart, hard, thorough, competitive hockey - for a full 60 minutes no less! This is what we've been dreaming of for years. All those crappy teams put on the ice, all those blown 3rd periods leads, all those half-assed, undisciplined games in the past we had to endure make us appreciate how good our team is right now.
When was the last time we've been this good? It's been a long, long time. But we have been here before. So let's act like it. Let's keep it professional, leave the smack talk at the door. Let's get the reputation as "fans of the team that just kicked my team's ass but didn't rub it in."
Of course, you can still cheer for your team. You can still revel in our opponents' losses. You can still boo the other team at a game for whatever the hell you think they deserve. After getting so much grief from just about every NHL team's fan-base, sure, we are more than allowed to get our digs in now.
But after watching the game tonight against Montreal, I must say I was simply astounded and immensely proud to be a hockey fan. The standing ovation the Montreal fans gave Halak after the game gave me goosebumps.
I say we take a page from Montreal's Book of Class.
A Loyal Blues Fan
