CapsChick's Brief Foray Into the Real World

I'm here, I swear.

I was just taking a self-imposed hockey sabbatical to mingle with the three-dimensional people. Thought I'd give it a try for a while, take a break from the playoffs and give my roommate a chance to reclaim the TV.

In my absence the Flames forgot they weren't a goonie team (and apparently forgot how to play hockey again), Jeff Halpern scored another goal, and the Sabres put the Hill-less Islanders out of their misery. Meanwhile I got to see Great Big Sea live in concert, which was a fantastic show - and say what you will about them, but any band that drinks pints of beer and engages in random sociables during a concert is officially awesome. I also got dizzy from the smell of the Swiffer WetJet and saw George Carlin, still filthy-mouthed and hilarious at the glorious age of 69.

But now I'm back and ready to ramble on as the playoffs continue. I'll have plenty of things to discuss in the coming days, including all of these fun things:

- Sidney Crosby's poor widdle footsie
- The Flames' homesickness
- Thrilling eliminations and disastrous defeats as the conference quarterfinals start to wind down
- First Annual Blogger Playoff Pool - Round 1...our first winner will be revealed!
- and (maybe) much, much more!

I missed you man :(, not to mention your Jeffy poo scored.

And um um, I knew someone was going to mention the Crosby foot.

If the Wings and Stars pull it off... I don't see how anyone could have more points than me. :D
