A letter to my wife during the NHL playoffs

A Letter To My Wife During The Hockey Playoffs

Dearest Love,

As you well know, you are the light of my life; you are my companion through the hills and valleys of this life. Being together with you and our children is what defines my very existence.

When I look into your eyes I still see the woman I fell in love with all those years ago and cannot wait for what life has in store for us next. When you are sleeping beside me at night I know the secret to the meaning of my life.

That said, tonight the NHL playoffs start and we won’t be seeing each other very often for the next few weeks.

The grass will not be mowed as often as you would like and I will not be available for helping with the kid’s bath and bedtimes. The vehicles will most likely only be washed when it rains and please remember to only talk to me during commercials.

I will prefer to watch the games on the big TV, so you will have to DVR your programs and watch them at other times.

Also, during this time I would prefer the refrigerator to be stocked with my favorite hockey-watching foods and beverages. A quick trip to the grocery store every now and then would really mean a lot to me.

Now, we both know that my work schedule will not allow me to watch every game live, so DVR-ing my games will take precedence over anything you would want to watch.

You should expect the living room to look a little more ‘lived in’ than usual, so a bit of extra attention there on your part would be great.

I would hope you have a good attitude when my friends and I wake you and the kids up with our late night yelling at the TV and high-fiving.

Remember that we’re a team and sometimes you need to go the extra mile for the sake of being a team-player.

You will find me to be very upbeat during this time, unless my team ends up losing early on; in which case I will be angry and depressed.

During the action, I will not be able to make it to the refrigerator, so I may need you to be ‘on call’ and bring out an occasional sandwich or drink.

Also, since most games start around 7:00 or 7:30, dinner should be ready no later than 6:30.

I know I don’t need to bring this up, but please try to limit your walking in front of the TV to zero times.

Remember, our love knows no bounds and is a light that never goes out.

Your Loving Husband,
A man works hard all week, so he doesn't have to wear pants all weekend.

Hockey, NHL?  What means Hockey, NHL?
There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way.

Hockey playoffs. My favorite time of the year. Luckily, my wife is a fan as well. Lets go Hawks!

People still play hockey?  ??? FYI: Hockey is just soccer with sticks on ice. ;)

What is this "hockey" thing you speak of?

 In South Carolina we have baseball, football, deer hunting, frog gigging and bass fishing. Is this some type of sport of some kind?

With that stick I will end you child producing, drop my gloves and beat the brain (if you have one) out of your skull. JS.

Not likely since you'll never catch me on the ice. I can't skate worth a dern.
