    Blues vs Bruins for the Stanley Cup.
    It bugs me that hockey, including the NHL playoffs, is so often put in the back pages of a newspaper's sports section. Even off-season NFL news takes precedence.
    IMO, of all sports championship series, that for the Stanley Cup is the most grueling.

    The playoffs have been really good. Yes, there were some blowouts mixed in but very good hockey.

    I wish it was played on Saturday since I'm working Wednesday. All England European finals is pretty cool.

    Everyone should hate Boston teams, they are constantly freaking winning. If the Bruins win, almost a clean sweep of all the major sports.

    It stems from when I was a yout. Bill Russell owned the Sixers, except for 67. I liked the Sox in the 70's. Rice, Lynn, Spaceman Lee.

    I think this is why I stuck with hockey all these years and not the other sports, most of which I stopped watching around 12-13 years old.

    It was never cool and was like the ultimate weirdo/uncool sport, when compared to football or baseball or even basketball. And I never thought that 40 or so years ago when I started watching it, that it would be as popular as it is today, but even now, it's really not all that popular. Sometimes it feels like golf and tennis are more watched/get more coverage.

    Even high school sports, including off-season football, girls field hockey and softball, generally get better billing than the Stanley Cup Playoffs in our newspaper.

    Got Liverpool in a betting pool, so I'm forced to pull for them today. Kane, Salah and Firmino all back and playing today so should be a good one.

    In my defense...

    Born in WPB FL in the 50s, all we had was spring training baseball. My Mom is from here too, but by Dad is from Beantown. My Grandma on his side used to take us to the Atlanta Braves games and keep box score. To her they were still the Boston Braves, then the Milwaukee Braves, then the Atlanta Braves. Got to see Hammering Hank, Roberto Clemente, the Nekro Bros, Dale Murphy, in their prime. So I was always a Braves and Red Sox fan since I was a kid, and they both sucked for decades.

    When the Dolphins franchise started in the early 60s my Dad started rooting for them instead of the Cheatriots, so I'm a die hard Dolphin fan, and they have sucked for decades. I was a Celtic fan in the 70s and 80s, but when the Heat opened I became a Heat fan. When Charlie Hough threw out the first pitch at Joe Robbie, I became a Marlins fan, and they have sucked for a long time.

    So too fucking bad if I'm a Red Sox fan. I have a signed by the whole team '04 World Series ball on my desk in a case, sitting on a golden glove. Suck it you Yankee fans, suck my '04 Ball.

    That's it, have a great weekend ya'll.

    ...But yeah, we get one parade down here on a 5 to 10 year interval, as do most sports markets. In Beantown, if you are a year old you've already seen 2. If you're 19 years old you've been to 12. Talk about feeling entitled. Up until 04 they hadn't won nothing but a few NBA titles in like a million years,now this. I get it. They are a bunch of arrogant bastids.
