The awards ceremony is a glorious time of the year, and I love it so much that I decided to put on my own awards show! The plot twist being that the season is half way through and there’s a good chance that maybe none of these picks will be front runners for the season ending trophies. And you know what sucks about that the most? Mine don’t count, and mine don’t come with real life trophies.
It’s a bummer, but that’s the way it’s gotta be.
The season has reached the midway point, and we’re beginning to look to the end. The playoff race is coming and it’s about to get dirty. Which teams will come through in the clutch? Which will dismantle and fall away to the side as if they were never in contention?
Who’s to know? That’s the joy of sports, no one knows. But what we do know, is that in the next few slides are some very happy hockey players whether they know it or not (and I’m assuming not), they’re about to receive my Mid-Season Awards.
