Engblom's mullet kills me, and I can't look at Messier anymore without remembering him sobbing like a girl for 5-10 minutes during his press conf, but yeah, I agree they've got great insights. OLN has a pretty good crew assembled. Ironically, I used to be a big Edmonton/Messier fan.

Yeah, I seriously feel bad for Engblom and Barry Melrose. Come on guys, we aren't stuck in the 80's anymore.

I'd have to disagree about Emrick. Sure, he is one of the more knowledgable dudes out there, but his delivery kills me. He overemphasizes everything. Whoa, and Carolina dumps it in (!!!!). Every shot on goal sounds like a quality shot, based on his delivery. Brings far too much excitement to the calls that it comes off really fake.

I don't think EDM is gonna win this series, but I think they'll squeak one out up north.

I'm a little ticked off.

Now, I am not a huge hockey fan, but I do enjoy watching it occasionally, and I would certainly not mind GOING to a Stanley Cup game.

Well, last night I had the opportunity to go. My next door neighbor was given two tickets to the game. His wife said that she would go with him, but thought that I would enjoy it more than she would, so gave me the option of claiming the 2nd ticket and heading over to the RBD center with her husband to watch Game 2.

Well... I had work meeting from 8pm to 10pm (sometimes the time difference between here and headquarters in CA stinks), and I was supposed to give a 15 minute presentation toward the end of that 2 hour time slot.

Thus, I had to decline the invitation/ticket.

Well... the presenters in front of me for the meeting last night ran long (due to questions from the 'audience'), and 10pm rolled around without ever getting to my part. A continuation meeting is scheduled for tomorrow during which I get to give my speil.

I should have gone to the game last night.

Yet more reinforcement that it's better to ask for forgiveness later than permission now.

Either that, or he was caught in the midst of tripping on a rumple in the carpet, sending the Stanley Cup crashing to the floor a second later.

Wouldn't matter. Unless it's an urban legend, that trophy has been passed around more than (name your favorite high school bicycle-girl)... From what I understood every player on the winning team gets to spend some quality time with it...

(Not that the Blues have seen the S.O.B. rolled down one of the streets of the Landing in downtown St. Louis in an age or 12.... )

But if it's true it's still cool. Great pic Boston. Enjoy the rest of the finals too. I'm a MAJOR baseball guy tho and my boys are hurtin' hurtin' HURTIN..... Gonna be a long road to October.
