I can’t believe the season is over. It seems way too soon to say goodbye to all of our players. I’m still kind of emotional from the game on Thursday, and watching the videos over and over isn’t helping either. Neither is having a picture of Mikey on the jumbotron as my desktop background.
Going to the game on Thursday was such a great decision. I was so happy to see Mikey and all the guys [possibly] one last time. I also got to spend some quality time with Trey, my favorite usher [who’s also leaving… THIS SUCKS :(], Myra and her family, and the amazing Fanatics.
For the first time in as long as I can remember, I’m not excited for the playoffs to start. I don’t really care who wins (as long as it’s not San Jose or Pittsburgh) and I’m not even in the mood to watch other teams play hockey.
It feels like yesterday I was at the first day of training camp. The team looked so focused and I thought they might actually make a run for it this year. I can’t believe Jamie Benn has already completed his rookie year – hopefully I’ll make a post soon about that because I am so proud of everything he accomplished this season. And even more proud that I bought his first jersey and mine was the first jersey of his that he signed!
I have a feeling this will be a long and weird offseason. When training camp starts, who will own the team? Who will still be here, and who will have moved on to other teams?
I’m not sure what next year will bring, but I’m sure I’ll be excited for it soon since it’ll be the first year I have season tickets. I can’t wait to be a part of the Fanatics every game of the season!
