The Flyers and Pens keep blowing eachother out. Hot.

Game 4 Sharks/Blues tomorrow. Stoked to go. It's like the schedule my tax return to come when the playoffs start. I'm calling it here: whoever scores first will win. Blues play strong when they have the lead and get away from their game when they don't.

The Sedins are back together and Vancouver's got a shot! It's still a long road, 3 games in a row is a lot to come back, but still, with D & H and their twin voodoo working, and with Schneider acting like a brick wall, it's possible!

COYOTES!!!!!!

Round 2 feels so great...25 years is a long time to go without winning a series. Regardless of what's going on with the ownership and whatever will happen next year, this is so awesome for Coyotes fans.

Smith was a BEAST in game 6...they won that game because he keep them alive in that god-awful 1st period. Can't wait to see what they can do against the Preds!

Congrats to the Hawks for the insane series...those 5 overtime games were ridiculous and what hockey's all about

Exactly! Thank you! That's what I've been saying to these whiney fans, "but, we didn't WIN." But, your team played a good series in the playoffs! Those were good games, weren't humiliating or anything! stfu, already! Sheesh.

Personally, I'm rooting for the Blues. My first hockey game at the old Olympia stadium was the Wings vs. the Blues. The Blues have NEVER won a cup? They've been in the NHL since 1967?

No one is going to be able to score in round 2 in the west haha. Congrats to all the teams. All these teams haven't had any success recently (besides the Preds last year).

So far out of the I'm a terrible 3-2 so far in guessing the winners. If the Panthers, Sens and Capitals win, we could have 7 of 8 teams who have never won the cup before.

For the playoffs this year, I'd probably venture to say you did pretty damn good. I imagine there's a thousand hockey pools now full of guys scratching their heads after what's gone down. Also, I pretty much agree with your next round picks other than L.A. beating St. Louis. The Blues are hungry this year, I see them goin' deep.

Dying to see a Flyers/Kings finals, and I am fan of neither team. There would be some great stories fleshed out in that series.

Hope Luongo ends up in Toronto. In Vancouver, if he doesn't win the cup he's a bum, in Toronto if he gets in at #8, he'll be a fucking hero.

2 game 7's tonight. I'll be switching back and forth. I'm rooting for the Sens and Panthers.I attribute this to coaching. That Caps coach has the balls to bench Ovi. And then after making Ovi part of the Borg, he keeps on the bench to confuse The Rangers, and it worked. I'm impressed. I still don't think The Caps will walk away from the series, but they are going to wear down The Rangers so who ever gets em in the finals will have a fighting chance.

I really enjoy watching the Thunder play and Kevin Durant seems like the exact guy you would want leading your franchise, so I should be cheering for them. However, I feel like the Spurs have a better chance to take down the Heat and that's really what I'm interested in.

I think they'll win the championship, but I think they'll lose tomorrow and maybe a couple to Miami in the finals. That being said, this run has just been amazing to watch, and just when I think the streak is going to end, Parker or Ginobili have a ridiculous 4th quarter. It's special to watch though, these guys are playing at a different level and I don't think I've seen any team play quite like this where they're just so focused on winning and can beat you in a defensive struggle and a run and gun team. Watch the Spurs along the way because what they're doing and how they're playing will never be seen again in this league of me first players.

Knew we would lose last night, but I'm actually worried. I still think Oklahoma can win this series outright. It looks like fans outside of San Antonio are really hopeful that the Spurs can pull it off and win, bu I'm skeptical. I never really fell in love with this team and I think we're extremely vulnerable. I wouldn't be surprised in the least bit to see Oklahoma still win this series.

He's such an angry dude, he doesn't give a shit - yeah,I;m going to bounce pass this ball to Pierce right in all that traffic. Dude gets lucky and Magic Johnson is cumming all over himself.

Don't get me wrong, I like The Celts, they are "my team". KG is mah man and Rondo and him have to play together to win. Dwayne Wade has to disappear and crawl up in a ball too. At least I get to see them play two more times this year.

That's what's great - or terrible, depending on your level of "basketball purity" - about Rondo. He doesn't have any fear when he plays. He's always played with a chip on his shoulder and acted like it's him and his team against the world. The passion is awesome. Can't wait to see them close it out at home.

In other news, I'm so bummed to watch the Devils get the piss kicked out of them. I didn't start getting back into hockey until this year, but I've always liked Kovalchuk.

This whole playoff season has been very perplexing to me. Watching the game last night, I was at least sure I was watching a historic game. Even if New Jersey won that one too, they'd have been in position to be the, what, 5th(?) team in history to come back from a 0-3 deficit and win? It was either that or LA wins for the first time ever, and from 8th seed (which I think was also for the first time ever). After that 5 minute major in the first period was over, I was pretty confident LA would be hoisting the cup.

I agree, this season was brutal. It was more confusing since some hits where met with suspensions and some seemed ignored. With all this concussion business going on in the nfl I was surprised the NHL was as passive as they were. Also Mike Bossy was the man. Please don't argue with me. I don't have a lot to root for and my "drive for 5" VHS highlight tapes are starting to wear out lol.

Actually doing really well in fantasy baseball this year. First place in spite of my anemic constant free agent pickup offense. My pitching has been just lights out for the most part.

Still stoked that the A's are doing so great. Hopefully they can keep this up for another 2 months. My heart says yes, my head says no. At least the Angels and Rangers both lost today.

First off, forget that you know the names of Ochocinco and Tebow. Then just look at the numbers guys put up last year and find a couple sites with projections for this year. Lastly, check the injury report the day of the draft. That should be enough to keep you competitive, but I wouldn't count on winning if you haven't followed the league for about the last 3 years or so.





So I was just watching gymnastics and this girl does a vault and lands flat on her ass. Somehow she manages a Silver medal out of this. How the hell does this happen? I realize that it was an average of two vaults and her first was pretty good(not perfect though, she was a little off to the left and took a step) but how can you beat everyone but one other competitor when you fail at the most basic component(landing on your feet)? The Pro American announcers tried to say she was perfect in the air, but obviously that wasn't the case because she under-rotated to the point that she barely touched her feet before plopping straight to her ass. And if getting somewhere close to landing on you feet isn't important, then why don't people just try impossible shit and land on their backs? I'm sure some Xgames kid could do a triple flip or something and just completely eat it.

I know next to zero about gymnastics and the politics of it, but I have to believe that 1. the other 6 girls sucked 2. Even falling on your ass is only a 1 point deduction and her starting score was so high. 3. Even this newer scoring system doesn't pull out the subjective judging - they gave it to her because of how great she did the same vault in the team competition.

First Perfect Game in M's history!!!!! 2nd one at Safeco Field this year! and including those 2 its the third No-hitter in our ball park this season!!!!!!!!!! I believe this makes Safeco the first ball park in MLB history to have two perfect games in a season and something like the 4th park to have 2 perfect games. I might be wrong.

Felix has been great all season long and deserves it! and shit its an amazing moment in what as otherwise been another shit season! Good job King Felix!!!!!

That lockout and subsequent CBA made a hell of a lot of money for the owners. Bettman may not be good for the fans or the sport, but he's been great for the bottom line of the people he works for. Therefore, he isn't going anywhere.

Sad but true. Sorry October but when you have one of the youngest teams in the NFL and Pete Carroll as your head coach humility is thrown out the window. I am not happy with what transpired at the end but hey I/Fans/Team can't do a damn thing about it. I feel for the Packers and they have every right to be angry but blame the NFL.

If this had the be the game that was the tipping point for the NFL to get their shit together so be it! it's pretty embarrassing to be honest that a multi Billion dollar sports business has its officials locked out. Hope this leads to an agreement fast! Get your shit together Owners and Goodell!

In other Seattle news that I am sure will upset some people the Good Ole Edmonton Oilers are considering a move to my beautiful city and I guess their owners are here exploring the possibilities especially with the whole new arena thingy a sure thing.

Hope the NFL/Owners/Goodell get their shit straight and seriously engage with the Refs Union to get a deal done as soon as possible.

The Hawks didn't ref this game. Some Hawks players like Beastmode Lynch have already come out and stated that this wasn't how they wanted the game to end and get a result. So I wish some people would stop blaming our team. Blame the system.

No offense to your fair city, but before the NHL considers moving teams, they need to hammer out a new CBA (NOW), and consider getting rid of a few teams.

Yeah that's why I said that most likely it is just a ploy for the current ownership to work over Edmonton into giving into their demands. Kinda like the situation in Pittsburgh a few years ago. Plus the Oilers are a very big part of Edmonton. I would never want such a beloved team to leave a great fan base like that.

In the end the Oilers will remain in Edmonton where they rightfully belong. We are just a pawn in their game.

The AL East and West races have been so entertaining to follow this past month, especially since the Indians shit the bed mid season and have fallen into the abyss.

The Rangers lead the division for 178 days! The longest ever in MLB to not win it. The A's have only been in first place once by themselves this season.....that is today! Incredible!!!! Congrats A's!!!

The Yankees win the division with a win or Orioles loss. If they lose and the Orioles win it will set up game 163 for the Division crown! Another exciting ending to the regular season in baseball!

I watched a few innings of the A's/Rangers game yesterday, and couldn't believe how bad the Rangers looked. One play in particular, Hamilton was moving to catch a fly ball, it bounced off his glove, and he half-addedly walked to pick it up. It looked like a total lack of care and effort on his part to make up for the fact he just cost his team an out.

EDIT: Saw the change, it was one of only three stat corrections in our league.2 involved players on teams and one was the Tampa Defense that is a free agent. What are the fucking chances! Anyways I guess Jamaal Charles got docked -0.4 points for a loss of 4 yards. Which was what made me go from being 0.3 down to winning by 0.1. Sorry Kid don't know what to say.

Anyone watching baseball playoffs? Was tough watching my A's drop the first 2 against the Tigers but they were resilient tonight. I think if any team has a chance to come back, it's them. Everything this team has done has been not probable so far. Plus it helps that the last 2 games are in Oakland and the Tigers are the only team with a losing record on the road in the playoffs. Where's Fifey? Can we make an avatar bet or something?

I've been swamped at work and haven't seen any of the playoffs, except highlights on sportscenter at lunch yesterday. Sounds like the A's played well with their backs against the wall and the season on the line, but I don't think they can beat Scherzer *and* Verlander to come back and win the series. I'll take any friendly bet you offer :-)

My brother-in-law is a huge Giants fan, so I'm hoping for them to bow out in the first round with a humiliating elimination game perforamance.

Looks like the Giants and A's both pushed for game 5. Last night's A's game was insane. I honestly thought it was over after the 8th. The Tigers practically dominated most of the game. So stoked right now. Well not stoked entirely because Verlander is pitching. Should be a good game with Parker on the mound.

Playing in Estadio Olímpico Metropolitano in San Pedro Sula, Honduras is no fucking joke that place is tough as any place to play in the world and the national team was not messing around today!

The Hexagonal, the final stage of World Cup qualification for 2014 is set with Mexico, Honduras, Panama, USA, Jamaica, and Costa Rica. It takes place from 6 February to 15 October 2013. Each team playes each other in an Home and Away series, so a total of 10 matches. Top 3 teams gain qualification to the 2014 World Cup in Brasil and the 4th place team will play the Oceania confederation winner which more than likely be New Zealand in a 2 Leg (home and away) playoff for a World Cup birth.

I had the opposite happen to me started 5-1 and then loss 6 straight matches (most of them not even close), won my last match which was a good way to go out but overall it was nothing short of a collapse, had I wont just one of those games in my six game winning streak or even kept them close along with winning my last game and I would be in the playoffs but my team didn't deserve that! Good luck to all that are still fighting it out, though it looks like there is a consolation/loser bracket lol.....

Well at least my Hawks are doing better in real life. Russell Wilson basically beat the Bears by himself and our schedule looks decent for our last four games (3 at the CLink) so we actually have a chance at a playoff spot though Dallas and Washington are right behind us. If it wasn't for Andrew Luck and RG3 Russell Wilson would be the Rookie of the Year (offensive). DangeRUSS!

I'm a diehard hockey fan and I will be back. I'm not going to kid myself into thinking I will abandon the sport I grew up with over one year of absence.

That being said, this whole thing is very frustrating and has been primarily caused by the NHL trying to be the 4th major sport in NA, when in reality it's a niche sport and a niche league, ala the MLS. The sooner the NHL realises this and stops trying to grow and merely prosper in what hot-beds they do have, the better it will be for all.

Was a very good game though I wanted the Niners to lose so it would set up this Sundays Match which would have been the biggest match of the season as it stands now its big but not was big as it could have been with my Hawks if the Niners would have only lost last night. Even if we win on Sunday the Niners would have to lose the remaining game and we would have to win our last game to take the division that seems unlikely.....so great game but would have love to have this weeks game be for the division instead.

Not really. The NHL schedule is bloated anyways, and it's certainly better than a full cancellation like before. By playoff time nobody will even care that there was a lockout.

Ya I'm super jacked to have hockey back. I was in the camp of just cancel the season, fuck it, I'd come back in October, as I was enjoying following the NBA a little closer than I normally would. But now that its here, it's incredibly exciting. Especially if the Leafs can bring in Luongo. I haven't seen the playoffs in almost 10 years so anything to make that happen is fine by me. Either way, the condensed schedule is going to be intense. I look forward to seeing some of our young guys; Frattin, Kadri, Gardiner, & Reilly log some quality minutes and start to take control of this team. The younger and faster you are this season the better off you will be down the stretch.

As far as the NHL goes, it would never happen but I would contract 8 teams. Move 2 to different markets, and have 2 expansion teams. Go with 24 teams, almost all in healthy markets, and the revenue sharing would be through the roof.

Pittsburgh
Washington
Chicago
Detroit

Western Conference
Vancouver
Calgary
Edmonton
Winnipeg
Colorado
Minnesota
Los Angeles
San Jose


Each conference winner is seeded 1 through 3, and seed the remaining 13 teams in order of points, March Madness style (1v16, 2v15, etc). The playoff battles would be crazy.


In any case, can't wait to wash the World Juniors taste of defeat out of my mouth. GO LEAFS GO

Do you work for the Jets?

Not exactly. I'm the main 'Conversion Supervisor' at the MTS Centre. I supervise the local crews who convert from hockey to concerts/events & back. I work for an outside company that provides contract labor & stagehands, instead of the union (IATSE). Don't hate me.:p

Oh well that's pretty neat haha. No hate here. Sounds like a pretty cool job.

Apparently Brian Burke has just been fired by the Maple Leafs.

Yeah! Burke out! Timing is quite odd but then again, we're dealing with the Leafs here.

Maybe his failure to land Luongo was the last straw? Let's see what Nonis' first big move is...
