So the other night, I was up until midnight, watching NHL playoff hockey. The game, between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Boston Bruins, went into triple overtime, and I almost went into cardiac arrest. Do you guys realize how much sudden death overtime that is? A LOT. As a Blackhawks fan, I yell. I yell and I scream and I go nuts when they score. I cry when they lose, and I lash out weeks later when I have flashbacks to devastating losses. Okay, maybe that’s a little too far, bu t I get pretty into it.

I’m sure many of you are diehard fans of one team or another. Maybe you’re a Heat fan (gross, why?). Or maybe you love the NFL and can’t wait for preseason to start. Whatever revs your engine, whatever team you root for, playoff sports are like a regular game on crack.

I’m here to break this all down for you.  I’m here to explain what a playoff game is like for a diehard fan–through .gifs of course!

So your team made it to playoff finals and you’re all like…
