A curious appeal to the hockey gods

Dear Hockey Gods

I like hockey. Watching it, at least (as you know, I refused to play in Atom when the coach tried to make me play left-wing).

I've very much enjoyed these playoffs, even though Montreal and Vancouver went far too deep for my liking. Also, Chris Pronger is still alive, and I thought we discussed this after the Anaheim fiasco.

Still, despite my love for hockey, I have one small request: until the fall, can we have no more games after tonight?

My regards,

Go Blackhawks!

Lots of people mention "The Hockey Gods", but few know who they really are. There are four: the ghosts of Jacques Plante, Bill Hunter, 16th Earl of Derby (Frederick Stanley), and Don Cherry's dog Blue.
