NHL Playoff Teams and Song Wagers

Yes, more hockey-related singing. This time around, a number of Deadpanites claimed NHL Playoff teams and assigned them a pair of songs. When a team loses, then the associated Deadpanite(s) must record themselves singing a 30-60 second sample of one of the victorious team’s anthems.

The charts below show the results of the first round (Thanks, Bunny!).

Jack gives us something to think about


The birth of my son in April 2002 was one of the great moments of my life. My former English Professor’s simple response to the news resonated deeply, and still does:

“Congratulations, you’ve just met the love of your life.”

Fortunately, the profound joy of welcoming my son to the world would be rediscovered two years and thirteen days later, on that April 2004 day when my daughter was born. I’d met the second, equal love of my life.
The wondrous bliss of their very existence helped me to sculpt and define my overall life-definition in countless positive ways. It’s not as if I had been directionless before, but this had truly engendered a greater purpose for my thoughts, focus, and attention than any I’d ever known. My self-definition had a new title; foremost before I was an author, musician, husband, friend, software guy (this was before podcasting), etc., I was a father.
Every day from birth for each of them, I found the most profound sense of pride and love and connection in their every miraculous smile and triumph and adorable action. I was the proudest guide and ambassador to life for these two beautiful little minds. If I’m allowed to take carry-on memories into the next incarnation, then all of the moments I’ll pack will include my son and daughter.

Through no choice or actions (or inactions) of our own, my children and I have endured three long, painful, pointless, damaging eras of separation. The longest so far began on July 13, 2008, and was ended this past Friday, April 23, 2010. No words can describe the fathoms of heartbreak during those stolen six hundred and fifty days, of all that time apart. No words can encompass the depths of happiness from reconnecting with the loves of my life.

I’ll share one amongst a weekend full of beautiful moments:

NHL Playoffs Song Challenge

It’s fun! Here’s how it works:

Each of the 16 2010 NHL Playoff teams will be assigned a song (or a few songs, maybe). Pick a playoff team (or 2). If your team is eliminated, then you must record yourself singing 30 to 60 seconds of one of the winning team’s anthems.

To play along, you really don’t even need to watch any sports – – we’ll keep tabs of the series outcomes around Deadpan. It’s ok if some teams get multiple supporters; it’s ok if some teams get none.

We’ll determine the team’s anthems by vote. Or something. Team/song suggestions after the break.

Contact me if you have any suggestions or to declare your teams.
