There’s a friendly little competition ensuing between a few kids in our town (Pittsburgh) and some guys up in Michigan. Some little thing called the Stanley Cup – go figure. Last night was supposed to be the curtain call – the obligatory last song and handshake before the Pens went home in defeat.
It was not to be. Sid and Co. wanted it too badly. Enough to hang on through triple overtime, a forty some minutes of grueling effort by the kids on skates, not to mention a bit of nail-biting suspense for anyone who stayed up to watch the whole show. They reached deep inside themselves to pull off a spectacular victory, the kind that sends chills up and down your spine, or – if you’re a fan of the losing team – just leaves you with your mouth hanging open in disbelief!
No matter how the series plays out, the Pens have reminded us what can happen when you really want something and put your heart and soul into making it happen. They given us one of those rare gifts, the reminder of the power of Desire. Desire inspires, doesn’t it?
So, what burning desire lies within you? Who fans the flame of desire in you?
