This is an amazing time of the year for sports fans. The NCAA basketball tournament, spring training for baseball and the push for the NBA playoffs are all happening at the same time. The best action is in the race for the NHL Stanley Cup. This year’s playoff race is one of the tightest ever. The Hockey News is predicting that a team could reach 100 points and still miss the playoffs in the Western Conference.
The pressure to make the playoffs is incredible. This is also true at school as we get closer to finals and the end of the school year. There are bid assignments, projects and tests that impact a student’s grade in a big way. This pressure can be difficult to handle, in a very similar way to the pressure of professional sports and the goal of winning the Stanley Cup.
