I've been a little sick lately, with a cough and headache. As such, I've also been really tired. So when we were clearing up our plans for the weekend, I couldn't stand the thought of going to a hockey game, tired as I am, with two kids and a losing team. So we sold our tickets, and changed our plans to go to Rochester instead.
I feel really guilty. I think I'm a bad fan, and I should turn in my fan card. I fully admit, if the team was good, we'd be going to the game this Saturday. It's a lot easier to put up with chasing two kids around an arena while tired when the team can entertain me. But the recent losing streak just leaves me with no confidence that the game will be anywhere near enjoyable.
So fellow fans, lynch me, and revoke my fan card. This week, I'm a bad fan. And you know what...it's all good because we'll have a great time with the kids at the Museum of Play. And we'll go to a game (or two) in December. Maybe even without kids. (A mom can dream, right?)
