(BLOG) Monika says Do away with the Playoff Series

It’s that time of year again…hockey playoffs. And as playoffs go, hockey playoffs have some of the most exciting games. I love this time of year, and find myself watching as many series as I can.

But that is the problem….the series. As on the edge of my seat as I get, as intense as a Game 7 can get, as exciting as a fresh, new series after a tough battle can be…I just don’t seem to be able to get completely behind a series playoff situation.

After watching NFL playoffs, and then watching the NCAA Tournament, it’s tough to watch a series type of playoff because single elimination playoffs just seem like the best way to find the best team.

I understand in a series it’s about the battles, it’s about the stamina; it’s about pushing the teams to fight for that advantage and move to the next series. But all I think when I watch a team lose is: awwww, its okay (insert team name here). You did your best! Chin up! You’ll get another chance. There, there. *proverbial pat on the head* That’s ridiculous.

These are professional athletes on a professional sports team. My thoughts are: Bring your A game or go home! There’s no second chances in playoffs!
Despite the fact I’ll be watching hockey playoffs and the Stanley Cup Finals…that’s just how I feel.
