As these human nature things go, I'm actually happy the team that took MY team out is advancing...

Cheers! (And "Go, Lightning!" :rock:)

Jeeze, that game was intense - even for someone who's not a fan of either team :)
Have to say I've enjoyed this series. Game Six on Monday! :ban:

Cheers!

Kudos to the Lightning for winning The Cup :mug:
Have to say the finals were anticlimactic though. Dallas blows chunks ;)

Cheers!

Congratulations to @passedpawn and his Bolts on their Stanley Cup victory to end this disjointed season. 2020 has been a trying year for all. So, it only seems fitting that we will lose a man who I consider to be the voice of my generation, Doc Emrick, as he has announced his retirement yesterday afternoon.

I was listening to my Dad and Grandfather talking one day; reminiscing over the times they enjoyed listening to their favorite Football broadcaster after his passing. I remember thinking to myself how strange it was that they had never met this man, probably couldn't pick him out of a lineup and yet here are two grown men mourning the loss of a stranger. Little did I know that he wasn't a stranger to them.

Fortunately for all of the hockey community Doc Emrick is healthy and among us. But, I am deeply saddened to see him go; knowing I won't get to hear his cheerful voice, warm greetings and precise play-by-play calling any longer. His ability to reach into his bag of synonyms and adjectives, manipulate the English language and paint a picture so vividly you could nearly feel every hit while never skipping a beat can not be topped.

To me he was the voice of hockey and the game will not be the same without him. I want to wish him all the best in his new endeavors as well as a long, happy, healthy life for the rest of his time.

I'll be drinking a pint at 7:07pm tomorrow night in honor of Doc Emrick and all that he has done for the community. Cheers!

Sorry to see Doc Emrick step away. He was the best character since Howie Meeker. Howie was a color man and could never have kept up with the puck moving the way Doc did.
