Game Time Emotions
by reilly gillis
Walking through the tunnel onto that ice in game seven, I have a million thoughts running through my head. It doesn't matter that my girl is being a bitch, I failed a test, I'm having problems in my life. Nothing matters for those next couple of hours; its like life is perfect, there's not one thing that could bother me in those next few hours.
Imagine along with me:
When you step onto that ice and you hear the crowd going crazy, it's one of the greatest feelings you'll ever have. You're standing on the blue line, hearing your national anthem being played in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the emotions that you have are unbelievable and you won't feel emotions like this in your in life twice.
You're nervous, pumped, and you're scared all at the same time, it's probably one of the scariest things you'll ever experience in your life. Why? Because you've never been here before and don't know what to expect. You're scared of failure.
It's also one of the hardest things you'll ever experience because no one will give up; everyone wants to win on every level, and won't stop until it's over. The game is faster, stronger, harder. There's nothing that's going to stop them; they play through broken bones, torn muscles, tweaked joints. They play through it all because they want to win and nothing is going to stop them.
At the end of the game, if you win that game, it's crazy, words cant explain the emotions you have. Most guys even cry and are the happiest people on the earth. When you're shaking hands and the guy on the other side says, "Good job you deserve it," with tears in his eyes, he means it. He knows you just worked harder than him and you won it.
When you finally get to raise that cup, and you get to kiss it, you realize all the hard work and the sacrifice you made was worth it and you finally understand why you went through it all, and did all that work.
