Quick

John Stevens was at the helm. After controlling a much of the game, Columbus took the lead with a shot that deflected off two players and over Quick's shoulder. I decided to go to In-N-Out and think happy thoughts. The Kings came back in the third to win 2-1.

The moral of this story could be "Don't let horrid luck get you down" or "Never doubt the power of cheeseburgers."

I hope they don't need any morals for this game. I can't go get a magic burger. Afternoon games are no excuse!
