I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!

You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive. You're all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

Making of a hockey fan...

An earlier post showed my family (minus the wife) at a local hockey game where the highlight for me was the Stanley Cup.

Today we moved farther down the road of making my son into a rabid Red Wings fan. Here we are...with my latest online purchase...his first jersey!

I know it's a little big on him now, but you need some room to grow!!

We had a great evening: Pizza, drinks, and the Red Wings on OLN...which is only good because my dad can watch along with us down in P-ville, NM, and we can actually talk about the game instead of me just relaying the action second-hand to him after each goal or significant event.

Alas, the celebration wasn't QUITE what we had hoped for...but it was a good game. After Detroit decided to really test themselves and spot Carolina 3 goals in the first, they came up 1 goal short at the end of the game...

But you can't fault the effort! The NHL's longest reigning Captain, Steve Yzerman, opened the scoring for the Wings on an outstanding individual effort! Zetterberg scored the next one and there were just too many subsequent scoring chances for me to count. It ended with the Wings on the power play and an absolute flurry of activity around Carolina goaltender Gerber and he (unfortunately) was up to the task. He was deservedly the game's first star and the reason the Hurricanes came away winners.

Anyway...the game was a good one (except the outcome) and we spent some quality time together, always a win!
