Okay, it’s not technically Cinco de Morrow yet. But at 1:24 tomorrow morning, Stars fans everywhere will be awakened by their alarms to “Rock and Roll Part 2” and celebrate a truly unforgettable moment in Stars history. Cinco de Morrow is our holiday, a unique one that only Dallas Stars fans celebrate.
Because it was at 1:24 a.m on May 5, 2008 that Brenden Morrow redirected Stephane Robidas’ pass between the legs of Evgeni Nabokov and ended the eighth-longest game in history. I remember that night perfectly. It was a Sunday night, so it’s not like I should have been staying up all night, but I did it anyway. Game 6 had to have been the best game I’ve ever seen. Turco and Nabokov were fabulous and it was a true marathon. I won’t ever forget that night.
You’d better believe it.
HAPPY CINCO DE MORROW!!!
