Honestly, I Only Need #1...

...but I'll attempt the other 9, just to play along :) Here are my 10 prerequisites for a perfect game:

10. Fewer empty, sad purple seats at the Verizon Center.

9. Being in my seat in time for the opening video.

8. The Horn Guy’s mere presence (watch a Caps home game on TV, you’ll hear him – the best in the league by far...)

7. A matchup with a rival that creates some intensity...in other words, no more lukewarm games with a so-called division “rival” like Tampa.

6. A fast pace to start the first period, with great scoring chances and saves by both teams to get the crowd into the game.

5. A goalie assist or a goalie fight – both funny.

4. A Caps goal in the last 10 seconds of a period, any period.

3. At least one Gordie Howe hat trick by any Capital

2. A normal hat trick by one (or both?) of my Russian superstars, Ovechkin and Semin. Of course I'll settle for just a multi-goal game by one or both, though. I'm not picky.

1. A Caps win. I know, shocking.

I am so excited that I came across your blog, you see I'm a woman that has grown up loving hockey and I have yet to meet another woman that likes the sport as much as I do. I used to live in Michigan (so yes I'm a Detroit fan)and have recently moved to Texas(cause I married a Texan) and have not yet found anyone in Texas that likes hockey let alone a woman that likes it. I just wanted to say that your blog is going to be on my top list of blogs to read... and I say lets push the womans movement back 100 years!! *goes to get in the kitchen where I belong*
