0:55

I had hope. Even down a goal I thought they could do it. With 55 seconds left in the third, that hope evaporated. But who am I? I didn't care what Edmonton did all season. I cared because they were the Canadian team in it. Can you imagine how the Oilers must've felt? What a major disappointment. With their goal within reach, they watched it disappear. Lots of emotion, lots of energy. Now, just imagine that we were putting that energy to good use. You know, pushing our government to make positive social and environmental changes rather than cheering on a team of people who get paid an ungodly amount of money to play. Just a thought. Maybe hope doesn't have to end with 55 seconds left on the clock. Maybe it can start now that hockey's over. Oh wait, World Cup. Drat! Saving the world might have to wait 'til next month.

Oh yes, oh how true! We do get led around by the nose by events which have little or no bearing on our life. Good thoughts!
