Canada's Team - The Ducks

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

So the Stanley Cup gets underway in Anaheim tomorrow with Canada's team hosting the Ottawa SenaTards - that's right, the Anaheim Ducks are Canada's team. For the past week the fans and media in Ottawa have been whining about why hockey fans across the country have not jumped on the Tards bandwagon - like they did for Calgary and Edmonton during their Cup runs.

One of the likely reasons the Tards haven't garnered more support in Canada is the lack of hockey-chick website - Canadian hockey fans fondly remember the great "" site that was all anyone was talking about two years ago. Don't kid yourselves, hockey fans up here new that the further the Flames went in the playoffs - the less the Flames girls would be wearing on the Red Mile. Nice.

The primary reason for the lack of support for the Tards is that there is still the perception that they are a "Euro-first" team - while that was true during the earlier incarnations of the Tards - it doesn't really apply to this team; they have twelve Canadians on the team. It has been hard for them to shake the tag of a bunch of Euros - not that we're complaining...we can't stand them. While the Tards are somewhere in the middle of the pack in terms of number of Canadians on the team - the Ducks are right up at the top of the list, featuring nineteen Canadian born players on their roster...for that reason alone, they get the distinction/honour of being called Canada's team.

We'll be back later to break it all down - we're going with the Ducks to win the big one.


Boston Red Sox LF Manny Ramirez had four hits, including a triple, and drove in a run in Boston's 7-4 win over Texas - a trip for Manny automatically gets him one of Hazel's stars.

New York Mets 1B Carlos Delgado had three hits, including two home runs, and drove in five as the Mets beat up on the Marlins by a score of 7-2. Hazel's old pal is having a tough season, but its nice to see one of baseball's good guys have a night like that.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Lyle Overbay had three hits, including a home run, and drove in five (including the winner in the 13th) in the Jays 9-8 win over the Twins.

Another tough night last night - not been our week; the total sits at - $405 for the week.

Today's suggested plays

San Francisco over Colorado - we are going to try the Giants one last time, they've killed us this weekend, but we can't see them getting swept. Lay $100 on the Giants - $160.

St. Louis over Washington - we like Adam Wainwright (yikes) over Matt Chico. Lay $100 on the Cards - $175.

Toronto over Minnesota - we'll go with the enigma that is A.J. Burnett over the Twins and Carlos Silva. Lay $100 on the Jays - $115.

Milwaukee over San Diego - a hunch pick, Peavy is due for a loss so try to make some cash off it (I chose not to use the term "jack" - think about it). Lay $100 on the Brewers + $170.

That's it for this morning gang - have a great one peeps!
