Other than multiple chair throwing incidences and “property damage” as the police man called it, I think I have been handling the game 6 loss very well over the past few days. After watching the Canucks get eliminated from the playoffs, I thought it was going to be the end of the goat era. Since the idea was to buy a goat for ever Canuck win and the Canucks no longer had the opportunity to win a game, I was sure the goat-o-meter would stop rising. It appears that the complete oppostie happened. Close to 200 goats have been purchased since the Canucks were eliminated from the playoffs brining the goat-o-meter up to 705! That’s $17,625 of goats! Not ba-a-a-a-a-d at all! (Another classic goat joke which I have used every chance I get). Anybody else know a clever goat joke? It’s awesome to see that people are still getting their goats. I was curious about this, but then I found a website that explained the 5 stages of grief. With the recent spike in the goat-o-meter coming after the Canucks lost, I figure we must be at the “bargaining” stage in the process:
Bargaining: bargaining often takes place after the loss. Attempting to make deals with the spouse who is leaving (Replace the word “spouse” with the word “team”), or attempting to make deals with God to stop or change the loss. Begging, wishing, praying for them to come back.
If you’re like me you probably went through the whole, “I will buy 1.7 trillion goats if the Canucks win game 6″ thing. It sure is great to see that so many of you are still getting your goats.
A new batch of T-shirts has arrived so there are some more available now. Remember – the goat shirt never goes out of style. All proceeds from the goat shirts go to buying more goats, so you will be making a fashion statement and a social statement when buying a shirt. Plus you’ll just plain old look great.
Keep it up everybody! Enjoy the weekend.
