Playoff Hockey

I don't know about you, but I love playoff hockey. I never played hockey, and I don't pay any attention to it during the regular season, but as soon as the playoffs roll around, I'm hooked.

So yesterday I went to watch the third period of the Canucks vs. the Mighty Ducks (I know, they changed it, but I just love the flying V too much to let them change it that easily) and wound up getting to watch about 2 and a half periods because of the sudden death overtime. Still can't figure out how Vancouver got that puck in the net, but made it, and I was pretty pumped. Now its back to Vancouver... one of my favorite cities in the world (and its actually closer to my house than Seattle is).

So hopefully I can get my exegesis done by tomorrow so I can watch game three. I will be exegeting Galatians 2:15-21. I actually kind of picked this one at random, but it turns out it is probably one of the best pericopes available. There is a somewhat famous Greek controversy within it that I might tell you about later... but don't get your hopes up. The semester is winding down quickly and I won't be blogging that much. Three weeks to the day, I'll probably be in Northern California somewhere heading north.

One last thing... Dave Matthews doesn't like me at his concerts. A good friend and I went to the Gorge every year for about 5 years, until (you guessed it) I came to seminary. We always had a pretty rad time... you know, running around through the audience getting everyone to sing happy birthday to random people who weren't celebrating their birthday... not to mention listening to the music. But for some reason he always wants to do three nights during labor day weekend, after my semester has begun. This, combined with him leaving Crazy Easy and Sugar Will off of (his less than great cd) "Stand Up," has me ticked right off... and it also has me much less of a fan than I used to be.

Not sure what the point of that last paragraph was... but hopefully I'll make it to the Hollywood Bowl in the fall and the concert will be like it was before "Everyday" came out.

Ok, I'm rambling... time to exegete...

Yes, a fault with the NHL as they should have a system where the regular season means more. All the best with the studies.
