Lord Stanley

The City of Champions has crowned #2 of 3.  We're just waiting for the Pirates to bring home the Commissioner's trophy to complete the sweep...

So we might be waiting a while.

I'm a hockey fan sort of like I'm a free speech fan.  I like it when I think about it, I just don't think about it a whole lot.  I went to a Penguins game with my brother and they won in overtime.  Jagr had a hat trick and Lemieux scored the game winner.  I thought it was ok.  If you have great seats and see a hat trick and game winner by your two favorite players and still think it's're probably not buying season tickets.

Having said that - congratulations to the greatest team of all time with a captain named Sidney.  I defy you to name a greater athlete named with a nerdier name.

    Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway,
    Eldrick "Tiger" Woods.

  3. maybe the best anonymous comment ever - although I'm not sure Anfernee ever won anything and Eldrick is horrible when he plays on teams.
    I'd also say that Sidney is a nerdier name than Wayne...and he's way better.

  4. Dan,
    You must have been thinking of the best name/mustache combo
