There Can Be Only One











This is going to be the most wonderful/painful experience of my life.

Brind'Amour didn't touch the Prince of Wales trophy, so it's still anyone's ballgame.

Also of note, this is the second straight season that has seen a team from Alberta face a team from the Southeast division in the final.

Furthermore, this is the fourth straight season that has seen a team from the sun belt advanced to the final, and the sixth time in the last seven seasons (Colorado vs. NJ in 2001 being the lone exception) that it has happened.

You getting started on our predictions already? Those are some crazy numbers.

No, it's more something that I just realized.

I do find it interesting though that TV ratings have declined despite this obvious success from teams in non-traditional markets. Wasn't the assumption that expanding the league southwards would increase popularity the whole reason they put teams in markets like Raleigh and Anaheim in the first place?

And speaking of ratings, I will write this here, since I'll probably forget to put it in the proper predictions:

Tonight's broadcast of the Spelling Bee on ABC will destroy the ratings for every Stanley Cup Finals game that airs on NBC.

Dude, get over it. The Whale was rendered into lamp oil a long, long time ago.

Amen to that. What the hell's wrong with you?

nyHey, I'll be cheering for the Oil. Don't get me wrong. It's just weird to see your two favorite teams playing. I never ever thought it would happen.

I'll say it's weird, considering that one of those teams no longer exists. You're like a mother who lost a child but still keeps their bedroom untouched for the next 40 years.

He's not coming home, Mama.
