Ok see here's the thing. Chicago has bumped us out of the playoffs for the last two years. So there's that. But then also there's something about them that makes you WANT to hate them and wish them ill. Is it Patrick Kane's doucheface?
Kane might actually be a super-nice guy who just happens to have the face of a douche, but look at that face. That is the face of every rich asshole in every teen comedy since 1985. Jonathan Toews, on the other hand, actually seems like a legit jerk.
A jerk with dead, soulless shark eyes.
Yesterday I couldn't handle watching the game alone and Joel was on call so I went to Christie's with some friends and we all chomped on our fingertips and as much as it would have been SO SATISFYING to CRUSH THEM DECISIVELY in four games, it was also nice to let them rally a bit before we killed off their season.
Onward and upward.
