WOW, WOW, WOW! Saturday is my day to do chores, vacuuming, laundry, taking the dog for that LLLLOOOONNNNGGGG walk so as to make this more enjoyable I tuned in NBC TV and the Boston Bruins Montreal Canadian playoff game.

Congrats to Chicago for winning The Cup all season you came from behind to win in the final minutes so I think it most appropriate that the championship be won in the same way.  Just wait until next year even though teams are being realigned maybe Chicago and Detroit in the finals, eh?  It could happen,… Continue reading The Stanley Cup Finals final
