Just when I think I have the perfect balance of analyzing but not over thinking it, I realize I don't have a clue. My gut told me no way NDWH was losing three in a row but I had a sneaky feeling about West Haven. I'm ignoring any sneaky feelings or story lines. I'm keeping it short, to say the least.
I would love to roll with the Sharks. They are close to home (the studio); they are the underdog, being a Division 2 team; and they are looking for revenge after an earlier loss to Mercy this season. The one problem is, I have bet on the team seeking revenge before and fell woefully short (see our Sheehan/Lyman Hall hockey broadcast). So needless to say, I have learned my lesson.
Tonight belongs to the Tigers of Mercy. They are the better team despite losing one of the best player on the court in Lilly Hedge. Mercy wins on the road and Goralnik's Guesses will get back on track. Currently, I am 3-5 on the year.
