…the Stanley Cup series is finally over.
I’m not much of a hockey fan, but with Detroit as my hometown it’s hard for me not to acknowledge the victory of my hometown team the Detroit Red Wings. Way to go!
Over? I thought the Penguins weren’t going to concede the championship until Saturday. Oh wait. I’m thinking of something else.
Is it bad that this is the first place I heard the results of the game?
Congrats to the Red Things. I’m glad it was them instead of the Penguins – I don’t think I could stand all of the excited talk about Sidney Crosby over the next year or so if he managed to win a Stanley Cup so early in his career as captain!
Anyways, now that the only sport worth watching is finished for a few months, I can finally cut down on beer consumption and enjoy the summer!
sinned34: Hear, hear. Not sure about the “cutting down on beer consumption” bit, though. 😉
Too bad the Pens stunk out the first two games.
The wings play too much like automatons and Don Cherry must be livid at the thought of a team with a Swedish captain hoisting Lord Stanley’s mug.
Congrats all the same to the Wings, the last two games were good hockey.
That Monday night game kept us awake on a late night drive home from the Detroit airport– first just to listen, then because we were so peeved! Yay wings!
As a dyed in the wool Wings fan, I thought Monday was fantastic. My heart nearly dropped when I thought the Pens got that last goal in the last .5 seconds of last night’s game, though! Alas, sinned34’s right – there’s no good sports left for the next few months. I’ll have to be productive, and we don’t want that, do we?
I’m not a Detroit fan, but props to Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Lidstrom et al for sticking it to Don Cherry.
As a transplanted Detroiter, I am saving that poster to use as wallpaper on my PC at work (surrounded as I am by BlackHawks fans….)
Yeah, I love that poster. Heck, even though I don’t quite “grok” a certain ScienceBloggers’ affinity for cephalopods, the poster totally fits in with a major element of ScienceBlogs…
I’m just troubled when a winter sport is being played in June. My theory with hockey (or as we say in parts of canada “hoggy”) is they should do it a bit like the official meter bar in France. You have an official ice rink in Manitoba. You flood it in September, when it freezes then game on for the NHL. When the rink melts, then the season needs to be wrapped up within a week. Hoggy widows everywhere will be cheering global warming.
I think at this point they should just play all year long with a two week summer vacation.
Its already got to the point where I don’t pay any attention until the third round of the playoffs.
