Never in my wildest dreams, did I think I’d score tickets to the Stanley Cup finals. I knew that they were long sold out and ebay was well out of my price range.
You can imagine my shock and disbelief when I was magically rewarded for my ultimate fandom. Magic is the only possible reason that single tickets were available this morning.
Friends and family had first dibs on the 4 tickets that I had, yet surprisingly, no one took me up on them. Then went to friends of my brother and a fellow Oilfans member. Either way, I think these people wanted the tickets more than anyone.
So tonight, as I watch my first Oilers playoff game in 5 years, my third all-time, and first game outside of the first round, I can’t wait. The minutes are going slow, but fast, all at the same time.
I can’t tell you how excited I am.
