The hockey game will be on in one hour. We have brews and chips and all the family and friends are here. We are all excited because these are the playoffs and every game takes on a bigger meaning. Our team needs to win tonight’s game and I think it will.
The Stanley Cup is one of the best trophy’s to win and each member of the winning team gets his name engraved on it. The hockey players skate with the cup in their hands around the rink as the fans go wild. Winning on home ice is a great thing, but hockey fans know the game very well, and even on enemy ice, fans will cheer the winning team with respect. So there you are.
One problem though. The wife called and she needs something from our Belleville storage. Wow! Now? Right now? Can I make it before the game starts? I do not want to miss a single moment of the game. I will leave right now. I run to the car and start it up. I back out of the driveway and spin the car to face the correct way. I jump stop signs and rush through intersections. I am nervous and check the time often. I need to rush to the Belleville storage, get the stuff, and get out. Oh no, a red light. It is a long red light and I tap the dashboard. Come on, come on, let’s go, there it is, BAM! I am on the move again. A few more minutes and I will be there. No traffic is good too but I know why there is no traffic. There is no traffic because all of Canada is waiting for this game to start and they are already where they want to be to watch the game. Except me!
I am here in the car going to get something for my wife. I think I know exactly where it is in the storage unit too. I am going it through my head on where this thing is my wife needs so bad. I think it is just to the left of my toolbox and off the ground on this metal shelve and, good there is my turn. I am almost there. Yes! I am here. I punch the code in, zip to the building. I leave the car running, run inside the building, and find my locker. I have the key in my hand to the locker’s lock and twist it and I see the item my wife wants, I grab it, run out, relock the locker and take off. I check the time and I think I can make it. It might be close but I feel good just like I feel good about the game today. My phone rings. What? Get more beer? Why, Well, OK. I will stop for more beer. Gee Whiz, what a time to run out of beer but you need beer for hockey. I run in the store grab our favorite beer and pay and run out. I leave the car running, hop in it, and take off. Good. I see my house. I park the car in the driveway and run inside. I drop the beer on the table all the while looking at the TV. I made it.
