Tell me there isn’t a Palinite hockey curse. She doesn’t even have to drop the puck on a team, just be in their home building and they’re screwed. If you ever needed a reason to vote non-republican, DO IT FOR THE HOCKEY. PLEASE. I BEG YOU.
I, for one, will be wearing every good luck charm I ever managed to accumulate the next time I’m in there. If someone wants to sage smudge the entire building or circle it in salt to absorb the evil spirits, boy howdy, I’ll show up with an entire can of Morton’s. When it rains, it pours!
