I cannot recommend this as a sounds fan strategy, but my gameplan for game 1 included getting indecently drunk and in public no less! Started with an all you can drink brunch. managed to down 4 1/2 strong-ass mimosas tan on to a bar where I mainlined gin and tonics. don't know if I was slurring, but the bartender thought I was saying, "Ow, Ow, Ow" instead of "Out, Out, Out." and expressed the appropriate concern.

except for yelling, the caps game tying tally with less than 4 seconds to go in the second didn't bother me that much at all. No shame when Kreider scored the GWG.

No drinks tonight, but I'll be ridiculous on the inside. Let's Go Rangers!
