Stanley Cup

Since the Boston Bruins have just won game six in the best of seven to tie the series, this is now my favourite sport.

I'm totally slap-happy about all things old-school hockey.

* At least until about this time on Wednesday. *

What do you lot mean, "We don't give a fuck?"  

* Four goals in 4 mins and 14 seconds. *

Isn't Ice Hockey supposed to be a winter sport?

Yes it is - the last game of the season will be this coming Wednesday.

I know everything about ice hockey, me.

That's special knowledge.

Best you don't share it.

Won't then.

Luongo chokes big time. Can't believe he's tied into such a big contract. Still, have to go with The Canucks on home ice. Two good teams, loyal fans also.

I'll be loyal too, unless the Bruins lose tonight.  

It's been a very strange series because of the very obvious and extreme home ice advantage - to the extent that I would guess the home team will win tonight too, but it's possible Luongo's confidence could be gone.

The speed of play in this series seems much more evident than I'm used to. I've obviously never played the game in any form, but it looks almost superhuman to have the speed and reflexes some of the players exhibit.

Obviously it'll be a game for fleet-footed bearded thugs if Boston lose.

* Prolly if they win too. *

Bathes in reflected glory.

Vancouver - twinned with Glasgow, Bradford and Brixton.

Luongo was the difference. Has any one man had such an impact on the Stanley Cup in the modern era?

The Stanley Cup sounds like it should be awarded for Northern-type (Northern England, not America) pursuits - dominoes, whippet racing, flat-cap wearing or somesuch - not ice hockey.

By the sound of things, those Canadian chappies seem to take it pretty seriously.

Though I guess if there's still ice around to play on at this time of the year, then they must spend a lot of time indoors and that there's not much else to get excited about.

I once saw a programme about ice-truckers driving around that part of the world.

As I was watching last night, I remember thinking the home fans in the stadium were taking it rather well and was a bit surprised so many stayed to watch the closing ceremonies.

Luongo wasn't so bad yesterday. I think Timmy Thomas was the real difference - he was awesome last night and it was clear the Bruins wanted to win more.

For reasons that still aren't entirely obvious, I have a game-worn Ray Bourque jersey here. I think I'll wear it to the mall later and wander around with a knowing smug grin making fleeting eye contact with strange bearded men.

Shgirts like that are what eBay was invented for.

I think the Canucks went for it last night, banged up and shaken after the route in Boston (which one, take your pick). Luongo instilled no confidence in his team mates. You don't think any of those goals were soft? I thought he took his well.

I think Boston were more disciplined and Thomas is just the best goalie playing right now.
