As I walked the track at my son's soccer practice, I prayed, Lord let the best team win, mine. I know it's not the best way to get your team to win, but it was worth a try. I suspect because my Favorite Hockey NHL is the NJ "Devils", God wasn't going to help the get the win to tie the Series with the Philadelphia Flyers. Prayer unanswered, the Devils lost, 4-1 and the Flyers lead the series 3-1.
Game over, time for bed. Right, like I can sleep now! One more lose and they are out of the Stanley Cup playoffs. I know it's just a game, but not to me! Okay, close your eyes and go to sleep! All I can see is the score 4 to 1, 4 to 1, 4 to 1! Ahh! I can't sleep. Cat get off me I mad and I don't want to throw you across the room. An hour later, husband is snoring now, still can't sleep! Finally sleep comes but not to wake up with the bitter taste of defeat in my mouth.
As take my long commute to work, I start think, Why am I losing sleep of my team? Why do I get so upset with something I can't control? Doesn't matter if it's my favorite NHL, NFL, MLB or Team USA teams. I always lose sleep if they don't win.
I'm hoping tonight I get a good nights rest. That would mean the Flyers lost and Devils are back in the series!
