Charlotte Checkers: Time Of Your Life


The morning after.

You rub your temples and pray it was a bad dream. You hurt for your team. You hurt for yourself. You stare at the calendar and attempt to caculate how many weeks until September. (15 weeks if you were wondering.)

The Charlotte Checkers heroic run was cut short by a 4-0 series with the Binghamton Senators. Our North Carolina boys played with their usual heart, blood, and sweat. However, it just wasn’t enough. Wednesday night’s contest was an overtime loss, 3-2, and for that we can be thankful. Despite Zac Dalpe leaving the game early, and others struggling with various injuries, the team avoided another ego-hitting blowout. They played like the team we loved to watch.

Cardiac Cane will do doing an end of season tribute to the Charlotte Checkers (once my depression lifts), until then enjoy the below video and lyrics. It is the only song that seemed appropriate today.

Thank you, thank you to the entire Charlotte Checkers organization. I am so impressed with everyone from ticket sales to PR, to the players to the ushers. Truly a stand-up group of people that deserve a restful off-season with their friends and family. A sincere thank you for the amazing season.

Another turning point;
a fork stuck in the road.

Time grabs you by the wrist;
directs you where to go.

So make the best of this test
and don’t ask why.

It’s not a question
but a lesson learned in time.

It’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs
and still frames in your mind.

Hang it on a shelf
In good health and good time.

Tattoos of memories
and dead skin on trial.

For what it’s worth,
it was worth all the while.

It’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

It’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

It’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.
