Today marks the end of the NHL regular season. Wednesday, the playoffs begin. The Pittsburgh Penguins will play the Columbus Blue Jackets, and the Dallas Stars will play the Anaheim Ducks. The Penguins are getting healthy, they are developing chemistry, and they're ready to rock. The Stars...Oh my, the Stars. This is their first playoff appearance since 2008. They clinched the 8th seed in the Western Conference on Friday. And I was there. It was wild! American Airlines Center was deafening during the last few minutes as Kari Lehtonen posted a 3-0 shutout and Seguin and Benn dazzled as they've done all season. It was incredible to be there, to share that moment with the team and the city of Dallas. And, we're going to game 4 of the first round in Dallas next week. I am beyond jazzed! Not only is this my first playoff game, but I'll witness the legend that is Teemu Selanne before he hangs up his jersey at the end of the season. 

It's the playoffs. It's intense. It's brutal. It's energizing. It's heartbreaking. It's uplifting. It's everything you hope for in sports and more. And this year, I have two teams with which my sports fan heart will ride or die with. Two teams to cheer for every night, two teams to cry for, two teams to love. Because this is the greatest tournament in sports. Because it's hockey. Because it's the Cup.

I've always loved art and have enjoyed making art since I was about a year old (we have videos). Horses are my passion, and I competed in hunter/jumpers all through high school. Now that I'm back home, I've been able to start riding regularly again.

I graduated from Colgate University in 2012 with my B.A. in Psychology. I'm currently working at the University of Texas at Dallas in a research lab studying adolescent aggression and antisocial behavior. I plan to continue my education in graduate school to study psychopathy and earn my Ph.D. in clinical psychology.

I also love books, film, good wine, and an exciting hockey game. I am an avid Pittsburgh Penguins fan.

My work schedule and other commitments keep me very busy, but I try to draw and post whenever I can. I'm always looking for constructive criticism and I try my best to respond to all comments. Enjoy my art :)

You definitely got the right hockey team! I'm from about two hours north of Pittsburgh, so everything is Steel City for me. Thanks for the favorite on the pic.

No problem! :)

I went to my first game in Pittsburgh a couple weeks ago (vs. Flyers). I'd seem them play in Ottawa, Buffalo, and Dallas, but hadn't been able to get to Consol. I had a blast and really loved the city. I'm hoping to go back for another game or two next season. We were only there for a day and a half, so we didn't get to see and do too much other than explore some of the restaurants and area around the arena. 

Here's hoping for a deep playoff run this year! :penguin: :trophy:
