W is for Winning!

Welcome to Day 23 of the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge here at Reading on the F Train.  Today's topic is Winning!

Just a quick one tonight, to celebrate my beloved Buffalo Sabres winning the last game of their season.  It was a cruddy season for them (but hey: at least the lockout made it a short cruddy season) but I will love them forever.  It doesn't hurt that right around when I started following them, they had a pretty awesome season and playoff run, the highlight of which (for me, anyway) was this amazing overtime game-winning goal during a playoff game by my first-ever favorite pro athlete, Maxim Afinogenov.  Check out his celebratory belly flop as the crowd freaks out:

That never gets old.  For me, it's a reminder to stop and celebrate your wins every day, large or small!

What's your favorite victorious moment--in sports, in movies, in books...or in your life? 


  1. Yay for hockey and winning! The Oilers haven't had the best season either, and they won tonight too. On the topic of celebrating wins big and small, I've been thinking about something I read recently. Someone was talking about an author who celebrates these big and small things with champagne and then saves the cork with the occasion written somewhere on it. Then she can pick up these corks and remember all of her life's moments of celebration. I thought that was a pretty cool idea. :-)
