My Official 'Go Bolts' Post

I'll be honest with ya, when it comes to hockey I'm like the Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer. As a football fan and a Floridian the concept of playing on ice confuses and befuddles me. But that doesn't mean I can't enjoy tonight's come-from-behind over-time victory.

I had the good fortune to be at the game, which might be the best Bolts game I've ever been to. When Boyle scored his second goal the Ice Palace absolutely exploded. I didn't see a single soul sitting down for those last 20 seconds of the third. And when St Louis scored the game winner? Pandemonium broke loose. The Bucs needed some lucky breaks (i.e. a couple of well-timed Atlanta penalties) to win, but at least they were able to take advantage of them.

In the short term, Tampa gains some ground on division leading Atlanta. But in the long term could this game be the spark to shake the Bolts out their funk up until this point? Before the game the Bolts where 11-10-1, the very definition of average. And as much as it pains me to say it, the Bolts are the best pro team in Bay area right now.
