Think that built a little confidence?
The Chicago Blackhawks, after going down zero to five vs the Calgary Flames in the first period, scored the next six goals for their biggest win of the early season. The biggest comeback ever for the Hawks, which is saying something since they've been around since the NHL became the NHL.
This game...say it's really late in the season and the Hawks are down by 3 in the 3rd vs. Detroit. On the bench Toews or somebody says simply, "Remember Calgary" or "Remember October 12th" or "Remember that one time at home when we came back from 5 down and won in overtime when Seabrook scored that last goal against the Flames?" (He'll have to think up something cool.) But it's a mental weapon they can keep in the back of their minds - anything is truly possible, they can win under the worst circumstances.
Like a dog sick.
I fell asleep on the couch drinking hot tea with lemon and a gob of honey watching the Rockies vs. Phillies game (Phils win when Rocky all season long dependable studly closer Huston Street melts down and gives up 3 runs after there were 2 outs in the top of the 9th and the Rockies had the game in the bag).
Then I woke up and thought football was on, so I flipped through and accidentally found a Hawks game when it was still 4-5 Flames.
Got to watch the end of it.
Sure it's only one game, but damn.
In other news, the Cubs file for bankruptcy! Hooray!
Okay, goin to the doc's.
