I've said before that I am not much of a hockey fan and truth be told, I wasn't optimistic about the chance that the Blues would beat the Blackhawks last night. But, I discovered I am a strong partisan of our city and so found myself really pulling for them. I didn't watch the game but followed along periodically on Twitter. There is a man (Mike Poepping of KSDK) who tweets only about the Blues so I knew what was going on. I finally shut down when the score was 2-2 in the third period.
Then as often happens I found myself wide awake at 2 and opened up the ipad to see the result and was able to go back to sleep happily.
The city of St. Louis is as important as a team and if the city's team does well, it makes us all feel pretty darn good.
