I have mentioned there are times of the year that are best for a sport fan. While March Madness is a crazy time with so much basketball it makes your head spin and the Super Bowl is a great party, the NHL Playoffs are a completely different animal.
Seriously, every single time I think about the Penguins today, I have shivered in anticipation. I am just a big ball of nerves and I am not even playing. Yesterday started 2 months of non stop hockey. While this condensed season has been non-stop these games are for the cup and that changes everything

I can't describe this feeling. It's amazing and wonderful, and nerve wracking and heartbreaking. I this is reason I started to knit because I needed a mild distraction so my blood pressure wouldn't spike while watching the games.

Seriously I can lose my mind while watching a game to intensely. But I wouldn't have it any other way. I hope to keep everyone updated on the games as well as my knitting. I honestly have had a bit of a hiatus from knitting lately and haven't made much progress.

So as we begin our game tonight, keep my sanity in mind. #LETSGOPENS
