This morning I awoke to an email from the NHL saying "Will Detroit Clinch the Cup Tonight?" I didn't really think much of it, until I happened to look at the time-stamp: 4:11am Central European Time or 10:11pm EST.

They already insulted half the fans in the league with the "Your team sucks, buy a jersey" email and now they want to remind me to watch he about the same time as it's over? Granted, the game didn't end until what, about 11pm EST? but come-fucking-on. You're trying to incite people to watch your sport and you send the "reminder" out after the game is 2/3 over?

Fuck you Gary. This video sounds like it was taken underwater (PSA: please don't' record live telecasts in the bathtub, you could shock yourself or worse ruin your plasma screen) so I can't tell if the Pittsburgh fans are booing or boo-urnsing, but Bettman (known officially now as the "neckless devil-boy") should be booed early and often.

And sorry Pens fans, you guys just weren't that good. But I'm assuming that were looking at the beginning of a dynasty here, if they can manage to keep Sidney Christ, Bloomin' Marc and the Russian Bride on the team, things look dim for the Sabres to make it to the Finals for the next 10-15 years.

I don't think it's fair to say the Pens "weren't that good". That's selling them a little short, like saying "The Sabres weren't completely shitty this season". Sid's team was certainly the strongest competitors out of the East going into the playoffs. They just ran into a buzzsaw with this Wings team.

I meant "weren't that good" in the sense they were "not as good as the Wings" and not in the sense that "The Sabres were not that good this year."

One is relative (PENS/WINGS) and one is a simple statement of fact.
