Stanley cup resides down south again because the numbers favor it.
Shawn avery gives another ex-girlfriend to a needy player. Who?
Sid-the-kid stays safe this season inside the broadcasters booth because he's done, just like tiger.

Get used to it. Now that US CBP and Canada Border Services will be exchanging passport and travel info, I think the northern border will be a mere technicality. How does it feel knowing a foreign government has access to everything about you? And your government gave that info away at will. Don't worry, we are friendly.

What's up with the kid anyway? I half expected he'd be back by the playoffs last year. Now I wonder if he will ever play again.

Meh. I thought he might be a bit of a whiner, but he is a great natural talent.

Too young to retire, methinks.

Yeah, his attitude never won me over. Ovechkin, otoh, now there's a player.

So far, so good for my hometown team, the Buffalo Sabres, taking both of their games across the pond.

My expectations are that the Colorado Avalanche are going to fail miserably like all the other major professional sports teams in this state.

He's still hearing the Bells of Notre Dame in his head.
Maybe Mario will find another 18 yr. old wonder.

Yes, but no playoffs for you. Don't worry, Toronto will be golfing as well.

Avalanche are doing surprisingly well. Except, for some reason, we can't win a home game.
