Condolence - as defined by dictionary.com:

'sympathy with a person who has experienced pain, grief, or misfortune'

I thought this might be the appropriate word to offer to my father, a long time Montreal Canadiens fan who is no doubt suffering some pain, grief and misfortune this evening as the Habs prepare to start their golf season bright and early tomorrow morning.

As you may have watched this evening, the Habs suffered a fourth and final loss to the Carolina Hurricanes in overtime tonight eliminating them for the 2006 Stanley Cup playoffs.

I hope you aren't taking the loss too hard Dad, my thoughts are with you. For the record P wanted to call you to say something along the lines of 'Go Sens Go', but I wrestled the phone away from him so you could spend the dying moments of the Habs season in peace!

I would like to thank you for your kind thoughts which I can only assume come from the heart. One might construe your setiments as satirical in nature but I know that your only hope is to one day be a actual Montreal Fan and join the rest of the chosen few....
ps Tell Peter that the Sen's are over due for their annual swan song.

Just to let you know Sara, I called Dad right after the fateful goal and he was too broken up to even answer the telephone.
