A Fun Night in Hershey
Well that was fun last night. But I have one question.....what was in the cups??
(Oh and if you are looking for me I am on the front page of the sports section, on the left, maroon hat with sunglasses on the brim....it was a good view from my spot and I have some more pictures that I will put up sometime soon, unfortunately they were kind of blurry cause I suck at picture taking)
It was great to see the Calder Cup and be able to hold it and touch it as it was passed around from fan to fan.
It was great to see all the players together, relaxed, and freshly shaved.
It was great to see YOUR 2009 CALDER CUP CHAMPIONS one more time!!
This team was destined to be here. I have to agree with something Yingst said last night....with the team they had the end result was Calder Cup or failure. Not sure if I said this before but personally I just expected them to get to this point. The playoffs just seemed like a formality until the finals...even the Wilkes Barre series seemed to be just another series for this team.
I haven't been able to find the words on what this Championship means so my post was kind of short yesterday and honestly I still don't have the words.
I have followed many teams but I have never followed a team as closely as I did this one. It is special to see them win the Cup.
But now it is on to next season. I have already begun thinking about what this team will look like next season. Hell even the captain Bryan Helmer has as he pretty much begged Yingst to bring him back next season. And Yingst kind of begged for Giroux to come back next year too.
Any way you look at it this team will look different next season.
But always remember this.....
"We don't hang up division championships. We don't hang up conference championships. The only thing you're going to see hanging are championships."
