Must see TV

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

Quick post today:

Must see TV - Love this clip...Kudos to Canada's Sports Leader who are doing an excellent job of building the hype for...

Game one of the Stanley Cup Finals goes today - the media, rather than trying to hype the individual matchups (Crosby v Lidstrom), are instead focusing on comparing the Pittsburgh Penguins to the Edmonton Oilers of the 80's who were on the cusp of greatness when they met the dynasty that were the New York Islanders.

For some reason, just can't get into the Cup finals.

The Leafs farm team, the Toronto Marlies, fell to the Chicago Wolves last night. The compelling story here is coach Greg Gilbert's decision to turn to go into the playoffs with veteran goalie Scott Clemmensen rather than Justin Pogge. Pogge got into the series when there Marlies were down by 3-0; Pogge won one and lost one. While many in the nation were outraged at the decision - having read Gilbert's belief that he owed it to his players and the organization to instill a winning attitude and Clemmensen gave the baby Leafs the best chance of winning. Gilbert pointed to the development of players who were called up this season, rather than just talking about Pogge. I get it, I may not agree 100% - but with Toskala looking like he is going to carry the load next year, Gilbert's decision says that Pogge will be back with the Marlies next season.


Cleveland over Texas - Cliff Lee goes for the Tribe who will be looking to avenge last night's embarrassing loss. Lay $100 on Cleveland - $185.

Los Angeles over St. Louis - the Cards have always played Big Blue tough...but go with Brad Penny today, he's bound to turn things around sooner or later. Lay $100 on LA - $150.

Boston over Oakland - Josh Beckett goes for the Sox tonight - see entry for LA/STL game. Lay $100 on the Sox - $130.

That's it for today gang - thanks for taking the time to check in.

Hazel, here's hoping things are groovy in your world.

I'm Out!
