For all the comments that USA-Canada wasn't a medal game, for all the comments that it doesn't really mean anything...

It means something alright; to the boys who went out there and won it, to Ryan Miller who worked like a dog out there, to those who wanted to prove that USA hockey is more than what everyone wrote it off as.

Will the USA make it much further? Don't know. But if it's true that all we have is now, then now is amazing. Nothing can take away tonight. It's untouchable.

Oh yeah and. Chris Drury? Doesn't belong on Team USA? BITE ME. I knew he still had the fire in him. I knew he was still clutch.

I am so proud of him. And Miller. And all of them.

ETA and to be selfish, regardless of whatever else it did or didn't mean...


That?


THAT meant so much to me that I can't even begin to describe it.

I feel a little insane writing this, mostly because I'm worrying about what other people think of me. What else is new?

Is it insane though that I feel more like myself than I have done in a couple of years because I have the hockey bug again? Is it crazy that some part of me needs this damn game in order to be happy?

It's not that I stopped loving it, it's that I stopped having time for it. That has the change; that's why I have weekends.

Hockey has an effect on me that I find hard to explain and always have, like it's wrong somehow and I love it more than I'm allowed to. But when I'm immersed in it then it's the best feeling in the world. It makes everything else go away for a while. It's a pure escapism that I had totally forgotten, and now I wonder how I ever forgot something like that.

Everyone says that you shouldn't define yourself by external things, but it feels like this is part of who I am. Hockey's my thing. I've missed it terribly, but now it feels like remembering who I am.

That sounds so much like I'm putting too much into it, doesn't it? Well all I can say is, everyday life goes on and it has to be dealt with. You have to find something else to uplift you. And there it is. It's back, baby. And me with it.
