One of these decades, the Caps will get to go through a playoffs without losing to the Penguins.
One of these decades the Caps will get to go through a playoffs until June.

"An Ovechkin? What's that?"

"A White Russian with no cup."

Yeah, the Ovechkin joke lives to entertain another year!

My Penguins aren't looking to shabby either, huh?

So if you haven't been following, my Penguins once again made the Stanley Cup Finals against the Nashville Predators, who made this just awful fight song/video/dance thing:



Luckily, this was given a proper treatement:

Oh, this is going to be one of those series where both teams have the same color scheme and I have to double check who is who.

Shit, I hit my Post Gazette paywall limit. (LOL the PG having a paywall to begin with)

Though I'm on the receiving end of the catfish thing, I think it's awesome for the sport. Some guy is such a fan of a team in a non-traditional hockey market and has had very limited success that he was willing to do all this speaks volumes about how well Nashville has been doing from a fan-building perspective.


Too bad it will be all for naught. I was out of town this week but I'll be home to watch game 3 tomorrow. The 1st Finals game in Nashville history should be interesting...
