The next one

Championships aren’t everything….

That’s what I keep telling myself anyway.  No matter how old I get, there is still that small competitive bug that keeps biting me.  I have slowed down, but I am still competitive.  I have missed out on lifting that championship trophy a few times in the last couple years.  I want another one so bad, but I just come up a bit short.  Most recently was losing 3-0 in the finals against the top team in the league.

There are no sure things.  You can ask the Washington Capitals if there are sure things after they won the Presidents Trophy and then lost in the conference semifinals.  They will say the same thing.  Doesn’t matter how good your team is or how you do in the regular season, anyone can win a one game playoff.  Losing 3-0 in that finals game stung, but we just couldn’t make it happen and that hurt the worst.

So whats next?  Get back on the horse.  My summer team sits 1-1 on the season and maybe we can make some noise.  Championship?  Maybe.  Depends on how things go.  I just would like to win one more.

Well, until I win the next one and then I am sure I will want one more after that.
