Ugly But Doesn't Hurt
So far, Plotnik has been lucky -- the side of his head doesn't hurt very much. So they couldn't have gone in very deep, though the wound (see yesterday's post) certainly looks like it.
Last night Plottie watched the first quarter of the Stanley Cup finals, probably the most hockey he's ever paid any attention to at one time. It was suprisingly exciting, high speed and pleasurably vicious, with cool basketball-style stuff like breakaways and no visible crybaby boo hoo hoo like soccer.
But one quarter was plenty. You really do have to care about one or the other of the teams to watch much longer. Brother Two Names loves the Kings so I'm for the Kings, but old buddy Jon loved the Rangers so I'm also for the Rangers.
