If you were watching the Stanley Cup Finals, you know how exciting Game 6 was to even the casual fan. I had brazenly picked the Boston Bruins to win and force a Game 7 with the Chicago Blackhawks. I was shocked and equally stunned but I can’t say I was as excited as the crowd above. In a way I was upset because I had virtually ‘bet’ on them, but not being a Bruins fan I wasn’t too devastated.
The above comes from Pony Inn in Lakeview. The crowd is excited that they tied, but it almost seems like there is utter confusion and shock watching the other goal. Almost like when you have to wait to confirm it’s not a replay before cheering or you’ll potentially look like an idiot.
I experienced this once when I watched the Dallas Mavericks beat the San Antonio Spurs in the 2006 Western Conference Finals for the first trip to the NBA Finals. It was a dramatic finish, but not a 2 goals in 17 seconds dramatic finish.
