The clock is down to single digit seconds and you’re not surprised that the visiting team is throwing their hands in the air. Minutes ago before a timeout you watched a puck barely reach the opposing goal line for icing and you know that was it; the Leafs were going to lose a faceoff and the puck was going directly into the net.
The OT goal that’s a minute of game time away is a foregone conclusion obviously. This isn’t the first time you’ve watched this game and it certainly won’t be the last.
As they show Brian Burke facepalming in his box you want to stop watching this team but realize that you just can’t. This is probably what it’s like for heroin addicts but at least their dollars bring them temporary pleasure.
Stop me, oh, stop me
Stop me if you think that you’ve heard this one before
I still love you, oh, I still love you
…Only slightly, only slightly less than I used to, my love.
