Jack's wisdom

Soon to be five year old Jack, my nephew's son, made it to the end of the third period on Sunday night watching the Rangers, his dad's and grandfather's, favorite hockey team. The Rangers had been playing the Kings in the second game of the Stanley Cup finals.  The game started at 8, and the third period ended in a 4-4 tie. It was about 11 pm before the first overtime period began when the nearly five year old had a date with the sandman.

The next morning Jack awakened and asked his father who won the game. His dad had to reveal the sad news that the Rangers had been defeated in the second over time period.

Jack's response.

"That's okay, Dad.  I'm proud of them."

Tonight's third game in Madison Square Garden will be attended by nearly 20,000 zealots.  It would be great if the gathered there can have Jack's wisdom, win or lose.  The Rangers have won three thrilling series to advance to the finals. Nobody thought they would get to play for the trophy.  Jack's right. All fans should be "proud of them."
