I am something of a nerd, but I have rewritten this poem from Lord of the Rings in honor Game 7 of the Stanley Cup.
One Cup for the Champions of eternal victory
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Game to rule them all, One Team to win it,
One Game to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of MoTown where the Shadows lie.
The Penguins have accomplished a great feat in drawing this series to seven games. It’s going to be a tough battle, and it can go either way but it’s such a great story for the Penguins who nearly missed the playoffs but battled into the fifth seed and then bested three tough teams to make it to the Final again. Many people doubted their ability to beat the Red Wings after falling in Games 1 and 2, but the resilient Pens battled back and now it all comes down to one final epic showdown.
Yesterday was my last day with with the Pens and my experience with the organization was phenomenal, first class. I hope they win the cup, they deserve it.
