The simple truth

I think I'm all set with trying to figure out this hockey team. last night I thought Timmy was going to get on a roll and get ready to carry this team: nope.
I thought Marco Sturm was going to have a real breakout year: nope.
I thought this team was going to build upon the success that they enjoyed last year and take the next step forward: nope. Maybe Wideman will develop into better D-man based on last years performance: nope.
Well, of course we have the coach of the year, Vezina AND Norris winner so we'll be OK, right ?: nope. Ryder will put up some good numbers this year under coach Julien: nope. Man that Wheeler is going to do some damage now that he has one year under his belt: nope. There is no way that Ferrence will be injured as much as he was last year; nope. Phil Kessel? We have a high scoring team so losing him wont hurt us: nope. Yelle,Ward, Axie, Hnidy- get rid of these "character guys" because they are easily replaced: nope. I can't believe the Bruins actually have a team that will challenge for the Cup: nope
nope, nope, nope , nope, yada yada yada yada.
Same old Bruins with the same old tired results: Yup !!!
Everytime they seem to put something together they follow it up with a stinker. The one thing they are is consistently inconsistent. So now the hope is that they will magically turn it on in the playoffs and go on one of those improbable runs that happens in the playoffs sometimes: nope
Sorry fellow fools but we have been tricked again (one day Charlie Brown is actually going to kick that football). What we have here is an indifferent, inconsistent, mediocre hockey team. They probably make the playoffs but dont be surprised if they dont. In the first round they lose the first 2 on the road. They come home and talk about how much pride they have and how they wont get swept. Maybe they split at home but, then they drop the series on the road.
I used to snicker years back when I heard people say "I will never see the Red Sox win a World Series in my lifetime". Now, I know how they feel. They ARE NOT going to win the cup this year and I'm tired of "wait till next year".
on the bright side, my therapist said he was able to buy that new boat he wanted because of you guys - Go B's
