God, are You listening?

What has happend to us? What happened to having fun watching hockey? Where’s the humorous sarcasm or remote sense of optimism? Sure, the Avs aren’t playing good hockey right now. And yeah, its frustrating to watch at times. Who isn’t frustrated with the results? I sure as hell am, but I’d be damned ashamed to call myself an Avalanche fan with the kind of attitude some of us are displaying. You know what, while most of our heads are down anyways, lets say a little prayer, shall we?

Lord <del>Howard</del> Sakic,

We (the Avalanche Nation), have sinned. All season, we’ve praised and given the greater glory of Your team to a pagan God from <del>Hockeytown, USA</del> the pits of fiery Hell. And now it appears that the Hockey Gods are angry with us, and we have all but lost hope on the season. We ask for your forgiveness for ever doubting the team that you Created. You lifted us to heights never seen before in Denver or Colorado sports history, bringing us our first major sports championship ever in Lord Stanley’s Cup. 15 years have passed, and we have been spoiled by teams with an over-abundance of some of the best talent this game as ever seen. And look at us now. We whine about lack of effort or heart. We gripe over unfair calls and we tear every player on this team down for every little mistake they make. And now, with Saint Peter a signature away from returning to our team, we call it Despicable. We call the team’s play Despicable. On behalf of the Avalanche Nation, I promise to never, ever give up on my team. Or so help me God I will move to Toronto and pay hundreds of dollars to throw thawed waffles on the ice.

Amen

P.S. I moved this prayer/rant from the GDT to a fanshot, and apparently strikethrough text doesn't like the new format. Or perhaps Lord Howard deemed it unstrikeable text, and it was so. But you get the point.
