You should do what I did. I scheduled a getaway so I wouldn't be tempted to watch the season opener. I figured if I could get past that, I could go through with my personal protest. Right?
So there I was in an Orlando sports bar with a transplanted St. Louis friend of mine, watching the Blues stomp the Red Wings 6-0...
I don't think I would've forgiven myself if I would've missed that game.
Life is too short to deprive yourself of something you love. Ultimately my passion for hockey and the St. Louis Blues outweighs a silly agenda. I waited several years for this powerhouse to be built and I'll be damned if I'm not going to watch when what could be the final pieces (Schwarz & Frank) are in place.
