You've started your playoff beard. You've watched the Goos' chill-inducing video 15 times. Your ring tone is set to "May Day." You've dusted off your lucky Rene Robert jersey.
You're as ready as you can be for the Sabres' Stanley Cup quest to begin.
So tell us: How anxious/excited/jacked up are you? Are you getting any work done today? (We aren't.) Have you told your family not to schedule any activities when the games are on for … we hope … the next two months?
Do you let yourself imagine what could happen if they win or fear what will happen to our collective psyche if they lose?
Let the games begin. Please.
