Left to right – Danno’s brother Bob, Danno’s dad Frank, me in the black vest, and Danno.
The Canadiens jumped into a 3-0 lead but only seconds after I let the “shutout” word slip out of my mouth because I was feeling confident and slightly tipsy, the Red Wings scored twice in 36 seconds, added another five minutes later, and the game was suddenly tied.
Only because I said the “s’ word.
But the Canadiens would score two more, win the game before a loud and enthusiastic crowd at the Bell Centre, and with that and the chance to spend some quality time with Danno and his dad and brother, the evening was just fantastic.
Now though, I need my bed. I’ll continue this later.
