Stanley Cup Playoff (Replay )

Updated on April 19, 2020

I am an avid Cardinal fan, rarely missing a game. My disappointment is evident in my choice of dialog, but replays, I can do without.

Replays are for people who missed the game the first time around.

Stanley Cup playoffs replay

Can you imagine watching this again?

It seems like yesterday when we were yelling " Go Blues go win win win "

We watched as they knocked each other down

Scooting a little puck round and around

The referee in between when they began to fight

The crowd loving it esp. if they throw in a big bloody bite

I must say that if it were not for my husband, Ray

I would watch anything before I'd watch this ice replay

I would have watched The Conners if Roseanne was still on the show

That's what happens when you make a racist blow





Tomorrow night we start watching the Cardinals replay

Oh please Mr. C Virus could you possibly go away?

When I go outside

I see people walking apart, not together, side-by-side

Gloves and masks in place and tied tightly

Is this a scene we must continue seeing nightly?


Oh shucks, the Cardinals won't be so bad

I'll get to watch ( Cute Butt ) Harrison Bader, for this I am truly glad

He's my ' ray ' of sunshine as we travel through these dark days

When this God awful virus is gone and we start living again, I'll send a letter to Bader packed full of girlish praise.

      Hello Rinita, so nice to see you. I agree, replays are better than nothing, We watched a replay of the Cardinal highlights over the last 10 years last night and we really loved it. Thanks so much.

      Lovely poem. Watching replays is all we have now. Me and husband are football fans (soccer in America). We live and breathe football, but it's been so dreary ever since the games stopped. We watch replays somethimes but it makes us sadder.

      Hi Nell. My favorite sport is tennis and I read there will be no Wimbledon this year. I guess we will survive. Thanks for coming by.

      I totally understand your frustration, lol! I actually like football over here, and miss the Saturday games. So yes it will be great to get back to normal, whenever that may be. Stay safe x

      Hello Genna, we both will be happy campers when we can watch the real action taken place while we yell " Go baby Go " instead of replays. I understand the reason all the plays have been canceled, but It's summertime. SIGH... Soon we'll be on the road to recovery. Love back at you..Hugs too.

      Hello Kyler. For the last 20 minutes I've been watching Roseanne on the Joe Rogan show, and I actually felt sorry for her, she's devastated. She said something she wishes she could take back. What I can't understand is why people on the Fox network get away with racist remarks. Trump is famous for dishonoring President Obama and he's still in office. Oh well enough said. I still watch The Conners, but I miss Roseanne. Thanks for turning me on to the Rogan show. I never knew it existed.

      Hello Mitara, The way Bader got his name, My husband's son and wife were here watching the game, she said, " Look how cute his butt is " from then on that's what we called him, when I saw the Cardinal bird with his butt showing, my muse took over. I blame it all on him. LOL When you Googled Bader, did you notice his cute butt? Hee

      Delightful poem. The only ray of sun is that when sports (I'm a Red Sox fan...my son loves the Cards :-) finally return...what a celebration that will be! In more ways than one. Love you.

      I like that you took a dig at "The Conners" with this. My girlfriend absolutely loves Roseanne, and she got me hooked on it as well despite having disliked it as a kid.

      Have you seen Rosanne's appearance on the "Joe Rogan Experience" where she gets to tell her story and talk about herself? If not, you should check it out, you may enjoy seeing her personal side!

      Not a sports fan, but the way you added your touch of flavour, enjoyed it like it were a commentary, great laughs throughout especially the end." Just from last comment, I am sure we are all googling "Bader", I know i did!

      Love it!

      God bless, take care and be safe

      This is such a funny poem full of wit and candor, Ruby. I just love it! It reminds me of my father who was such a sports enthusiast especially when it came to football or hockey. I have no interest in watching these “men scooting a little puck round and round as they knock each other down.” I would much rather watch anything even a soap opera which I’m not especially fond of either. But, your poem is certainly entertaining and made me smile! Wonderful job on creating some humor in this situation we’re in.

      This is great! We have constant replays of football matches. I have no interest whatsoever in football, even less in the overpaid and overrated players. I do love a rugby match though. We support out local team. Of course, at the moment we can't go to any matches, indeed there aren't any to go to.

      Just because there are slots on television for regular sports every weekend, we have to have replays of the replays so I understand what you're saying. I'm a great tennis fan but there will be no Wimbledon this year - who would've known that would ever happen? I'm devastated. There will no doubt be replays of every Wimbledon there's ever been! Better than football but I've seen them all. However, I shall be out there with my tennis racket as soon as we're allowed to do anything again. It's time I taught my grandchildren how to play and have some fun in the fresh air!

      I have to admit, Ruby. I hate the replays. It's exciting the first time, but not the second, Bring on summer and let's throw away the masks!

      It's pretty weird, a world without sports. We could have never imagined a scenario of no baseball or football or hockey,short of a nuclear attack, and yet here we are.

      Stranger and stranger we go

      Happy Sunday my friend!

      Hi Shauna. I've always been a Cardinal baseball fan, but never Hockey. Ray used to play so he's really a fan, and when a replay comes up he's a happy camper. I saw this cute picture of this Cardinal bird so my muse thought it might be fun to write about Bader the outfielder, whom we call Cute Butt. Thanks for a great idea! Wink Wink.

      Hi Brenda, yes, I'm thankful to not be alone, I think if I were I'd go nuts. I am a Cardinal fan and I really like Bader the outfielder, and we've always called him cute butt. I saw this picture of the Cardinal bird and thought I'd have some fun. Happy you caught it.

      Eric, I'm not that much of a sports fan, but Ray is and the replays he'll watch faithfully. Me, I'm more of a 'The Voice ' fan. Just having some fun with the ' cute butt ' thing.

      Ruby, I don't follow sports, but this was a fun read, anyway. I especially liked the "cute butt" adage.

      I know sports fans are in a pickle right now, my brother being one of them.

      Hang in there, kiddo, we'll get thru this. Perhaps you and Ray can come up with a sport of your own! Wink, wink.

      Ruby,

      I caught that...(cute butt), i guess it won't be so bad.

      But I agree the replays are for those who miss it the first time around, but I know people who watch football games over and over.

      Just not my cup of tea unless there is a championship upcoming.

      I'm with you...please go away Corona.

      Fix ya all some snacks and enjoy the moment. At least you have someone to share it with...laugh a little and enjoy.
