#2293337 WCQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Predators 2

Posted by 55fan on 20 April 2012 - 11:04 AM

I was talking to my mama on the phone last night. The conversation went something like this:

Mom: Should we be worried?
Me: Did you see the last game?
Mom: Yes.
Me: Were they shooting the puck?
Mom: Yes.
Me: Well, if they weren't shooting, I wouldn't worry because that means they can start trying. If they're shooting, that means the puck isn't getting past Rinne.
Mom: They're shooting. Are you worried.
Me: If they're shooting, I'm worried.
Mom: Oh, then I'm worried.


Dear Red Wings,
My Mama is worried. Please don't make her sad. Please score lots of goals more than Nashville does and win the game.
Love, Karen

Shea Weber gives those, but only if your name is Shanahan. :D

See? We're already smiling.

That's the other thing necessary for a positive mindset- humour.

I love that photo. It's so touching, and portrays the dignity and respect of our organization.

I share your dilemma. Not only the playoffs, but certain things at work and the health of people close to me has also contributed.

Usually I either go to the casino or get drunk, but the casino is killing me financially and I've become immune to whiskey.

What I have found brings joy to my life like nothing else is helping someone else. There is no greater feeling of accomplishment than to know that you have made someone else's life better. Not for your own glory or to receive praise, but just for the pure joy of knowing that the world is a better place, if only in one little area.

If you find that you expect something back, then it's a better idea to do it anonymously.

This has helped me through about 30 years of depression without meds. I firmly believe in the power of giving.

Except blow jobs. I don't give those. Eew.
