...mostly so I don't forget all the SBN "new post" mechanics.
At any rate, the main reason I was rooting for the Kings to hold their third-period lead in G6 Sunday night wasn't necessarily for the sake of the drama inherently associated with a G7, nor because I was desperately pulling for another postseason Battle of California. Instead, I had a secret third motivation -- laziness.
The Kings' elimination started the clock for me to write up a quick eulogy for the 2009-10 L.A. Kings over at Puck Daddy, and while it was a pretty rushed effort, I'm largely satisfied. I even included a bonus cartoon:
Feel free to critique the submission, respond to it, or even add your own bit of eulogy in these comments with however much snark you feel is appropriate -- I may have been too nice. Or heck, feel free to game-comment on the
two one G7 happening tonight -- exciting times.
In the meantime, after the jump, a quick look back at some of the hockey-themed first-round images I've created on the outskirts of this blog -- I've been taking a backseat in writing posts this past round, so not many of these actually made it into the body of a post. (Re-)enjoy!
This first one is actually the first of a series of thirteen cartoons -- if you haven't read the BoC Quest for the Cup post, that one's pretty money.
The rest of these were all inspired by actual first round events -- maybe some will even get to be recycled for round two! :)
Not a bad effort from a guy whose team isn't even in the race. Sorry I'm so rushed today; more effort coming next post and more cartoons coming next round.
