    Careful now, people around here don't seem to like sports threads....o_O

    Watching golf a ways back and the announcer says the Wanamaker Trophy is the greatest trophy in sports. REALLY? Never heard of Lord Stanley's Cup?

    Every single member the Blues has been dreaming of hoisting The Cup since they were 4. And every single member of the Bruins is devastated that they didn't get their chance. Nothing compares.

    Pity is was a blowout -- a little more drama would have been nice -- but wow did the Blues earn it. Overlooked rookie goaltender -- wow again.

    And yeah, no 5-second delay or bleeping during the skating of the cup. Oops, but it made it a little more real.

    I was happy to see them lose. Even happier to see marchand tearing up after the game. His bonehead move at the end of the first gave the blues all the momentum and an easy goal.. that play should be showed to every aspiring player. No matter how big of a star you are, ya cant do that!

    I was hoping this was about music: blues.

    No clue in what sport one can win the "Stanley Cup", Google showed me it's ice hockey... [​IMG]

    Hockey? Isn’t that the sport they play before the circus? And why the hell are they playing in July?

    To lose at home in game seven. Ouch. Have to wonder why more debris didn't rain down on the ice.

    Guess the Bruins decided to let someone else win for a change. Keeps up incentive for the other guys.

    Global warming proponents and their stupid "facts". Gotta hate facts and all their irrefutableness and overwhelming-consensus-ism. As annoying as those people who used to say cigarettes were addictive and caused cancer.

    Your sarcasm sounds like you might be starting to see the light about the fake tobacco science they used to come up with "global warming". :confused:

    Mining the materials to make batteries for electric cars pollutes more than driving our old Buicks, not to mention when the batteries for those cars wear out and have to be disposed of!:eek: Plus the pollution a factory puts out to manufacture new cars is WAY more than everyone driving clunkers would be.

    So driving an old or restored Buick is MORE "green" than driving a Prius because the manufacturing pollution is already grandfathered in on our old Buicks, even restoring them is less polluting than a newly built car does from the hundreds of factories that it takes to make them.
