On Walls We Must Climb
“The people, they were singing
I could hear them from the street
My feelings, they were stinging
I was submerged in my defeat
But I smiled for a second
And for that second, I felt fine
Pain is a wall I must climb.” – Michael McDermott

I wonder; do the players feel as much pain after a loss as their fans? Reading the various hockey blogs on Tuesday morning, pain and anger were on full display. Pain is described by Merriam -Webster as follows:
-The physical feeling caused by disease, injury, or something that hurts the body.
-mental or emotional suffering
-Someone or something that causes trouble or makes you feel annoyed or angry.
Then there’s the “My Left Foot Pain.”
