Playoffs: Round Two!

      No Comments on Playoffs: Round Two!

Edited: I had a brain fart and wrote that the Rangers had home ice in round 2. I realized this after the fact. They do not. Ottawa does. Wow, round one had some surprises and a few series which were pretty great at busting brackets — mine included. Let me recap for those who aren’t paying attention, and also predict… Read more »

NHL Playoffs: 2017 Edition, First Round

Meant to post this yesterday but there’s always something in the way. Here we go: My full bracket is as follows: Round 1: Capitals over Leafs, Penguins over Blue Jackets, Habs over Rangers, Bruins over Senators, Blackhawks over Predators, Wild over Blues, Ducks over Flames, Oilers over Sharks.

As the camera pans over the crowd — which is yuuuge and going wild, it eventually settles on the ring. Standard wrestling ring but with red, white, and blue ropes and turnbuckle pads. One Donald J. Trump stands in center ring, holding a microphone,… Read more »

If the Ducks lose, four of the final eight teams will have never won the Stanley Cup: Predators, Capitals, Sharks, and Blues…. Read more »

Something different Washington has home ice advantage throughout playoffs, and I expect that’ll pay off handsomely for them this time around. The team, the coach, it all seems to have come together. I see them beating Philly in 6 games — as good as Washington is, Philly is playing hot right now and Washington coasted in. Pittsburgh is also playing… Read more »

Two Things Everyone is Getting Wrong about Ray Rice

I’ve spent more time than I should reading comments from random internet users about Ray Rice, and there are two things that most of them are getting wrong: 1. “How did the NJ DA let him get away!!” Because the victim in this case wasn’t cooperating with the prosecution. Assuming NJs laws are like most places, then she can decline… Read more »

First Round Hockey Predictions — Not Looking So Hot… in two spots.

Picked the Bruins over Detroit — still looks likely. Picked Tampa over Montreal. SHEESH… they might get swept tonight. Picked New York over Philly. Looks good. Picked Pittsburgh over Columbus — woo woo… Anaheim over Dallas — still feeling okay… San Jose over Los Angeles. Feel good about this one. Chicago over St. Louis — this is the second one… Read more »
