I Had A Straight Up Sportsgasm On Friday Night

This doesn’t happen too often.  C’s, B’s and Sox winning their respective World Championships, yes.  The Sox coming back in 2004 against the Yankees pretty much a sportgasm every night.  But this past Friday was a coming together of two pretty awesome moments.

At approximately 10:07, Adam McQuaid ripped a shot past the Pittsburgh goalie for what would prove to be the winning goal and earned the Bruins a spot in the Stanley Cup Finals.   About 2 minutes later Jozy Altidore took a cross from Graham Zusi and headed it into the back of the next to give the US Men’s Soccer team a 1-0 lead over Jamaica in a World Cup qualifier.  It should have been the winning goal, but Jamaica got a goal late before Brad Evans put the US back up.

So, pretty much within a few minutes I lost my shit twice in classic fashion.

and then

Gigging!  This is what I love about sports in a nutshell.  Pure joy over watching your teams succeed.  Both teams won, both teams took one step closer to achieving their ultimate goal (Stanley Cup/ World Cup.)  Again, this is the reason I watch sports over any dumb reality tv.  This is the real deal people, get yourselves together.
