A hockey poem for Brian

I can’t cheer for Tampa Bay, too many
painful memories of Florida: a fear of
sharks nipping at my heels in the ocean;
the triple threat of a hotel room, HBO and
trucker speed.

No, I’ll stick with Ottawa, even though
it reminds me of uncomfortable breakfasts,
a bitter cold and never knowing what to do
with my hands.

There are no atheists in foxholes, no fence
sitters during playoffs, no regret that can’t
be forgiven.

know who I like? I like the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. I know they were named after a movie starring Charlie Sheen, and Anaheim isn't much of a city, but I like them, I really do. Forgive me?
