Life In A Glass House

My friend Nicole is such a funny girl. She finally sends in her and Jim’s money for the hockey pool, and cleverly wraps it in the front page of the Hamilton Spectator sports section from the day after the Flyers smacked around the Leafs last week. Ho ho ho. Was that a taunt? Well Miss Nicole (Mrs, actually), I have some choice headlines for you this morning:

“Ducks sweep defending Stanley Cup champions”

“Ducks fly past Detroit”

“Seeing Red: Wings Fall”

“Wings and Joseph eliminated”

“SO LONG, STANLEY – Anaheim sweeps Cup champions from playoffs”

There is no joy in Motown. People in glass houses, my dear.

ADDENDUM: Apparently Nicole had tickets to game 5. HA HA!

My daytimer states that today is Maundy Thursday. What the hell does ‘Maundy’ mean?
