Ladies and gentlemen, it is time to hammer the panic button on the Washington Capitals playoff run.
The Caps have somehow managed to successfully throw away a two-game lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning, and are now tied up 2-2 after taking another licking Thursday night.
I had so much damn hope going into this series. The clouds had parted, the sun was shining down, and it appeared that Washington D.C. sports were starting a new chapter. Now, were plummeting back to reality. Its like when you thought you were going home with the hottest cheerleader, and then youre reminded that hot cheerleaders dont go home with 58″ unathletic and overweight dudes.
Why do we get our hopes up? Why do we start to believe that were about to turn a new page? Why do bad things happen to good people? (SLIDESHOW: HOCKEY RINKS MIGHT BE COLD, BUT THESE WOMEN ARE SCORCHING HOT)
Im currently sitting here, extremely hungover, tired, frustrated and not happy at all that I allowed myself to believe that the Caps might get the job done. How stupid were we?
They better turn this ship around immediately because this is absurd. I hate losers and will never tolerate anything less than getting the job done.
