I'm staying up all night and sitting back to enjoy the Flyers and Kings Q-Finals Clinching Games which I Tivo'ed earlier...
...and I'm glad I Tivo'ed them since there are no replays scheduled for them that I see on my TV schedule.
Like I said in the other thread... I could not watch this Flyers game LIVE... I get way too stressed out because I see every little detail and chance long before they happen. Having played, watched and followed hockey for many years now I can sence and predict game action before it happens... I'm always telling my wife what to watch for and it usually happens just like I had said it would. I'm not bragging... but I've been around the block a whole lotta times now so none of the action is news to me.
Anyway... I didn't watch because of the stress added by what I see when you compare that to what the play-by-play guys see. I say things BEFORE they happen... they say it only after it has happened. So during the game I sat with my head down and eyes closed and just listened to the game... my wife understands and knows why I had to do this. If I didn't care so much about the Flyers it would not be a problem. No other team causes me so much stress while watching them. And it's only Flyers playoff games that are unwatchable at times for me. I can usually handle games 1 thru 4... but when things are close the tension is very stressful. I'll probably die watching a Flyers game one day... ha,ha,ha. No garbage.
I took a stress pill, a muscle relaxer (for back spasms) and a pain pill... just to listen to this game. I did not look up when LIVE until there were only 20 seconds remaining in the 3rd period. Not until then did I feel it was safe to do so.
The Meds worked so well that by the time the Kings game was starting I fell alseep... and only woke up minutes after they had won. My Tivo was still recording that game but some show was on meaning the Kings game had ended... I had no idea what had happened so I hit reverse and saw that the Kings had won in OT... YIPPIE for Me...!!!!!!!
So now I'm sitting back to ENJOY these sweet wins... ... in a stress free situation. I'm sure I'll spot the many things not mentioned by the guys on TV but it won't change the outcomes... Thankfully.
Let's Go Flyers...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let's Go Kings...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
