Are you joking? Tennis is superb. Completely perfect balance between psychological and physical.

And I say that as a die-hard Winnipeg Jets fan.

Same here but I watch the CFL.The only other event that has signifigance for me are the Olympics.
For some reason I just love them!

The Capitals are now playing horrible defense. Ovechkin is coasting and goal-sucking. But they at least have a goalie who is (currently) bailing them out.


The Bozo goalies in the Pit/Phi series are really pathetic.

Hockey demands keen vision, a quick mind, a thorough understanding of the rules along with appreciation and understanding of chaotic & creative spontaneity.

Sadly, too many minds fall short in these requirements. They literally can't process what's going on.

There's a reason why the NHL has not grown, it's B O R I N G.

However, there is a solution: Sort of like those 80's games and that 45 goal game. People come to see scoring and winning, not a hour of wasted time (except for the fights).

Give them some high speed feedback, eliminate the goaly. Then you will see basketball like scoring and a fast paced game with some results.

Sure beats waisting an hour or so for some free shots to the goals? Why not skip the game and go right to that?
Must be from Dallas or Pheonix..

Same except you should give CFL a try. 3 downs, shorter play clock, less spectacle. The downside is, less talent.

Fishing is only fun doing.
Tennis is just lame.
Golf is for old people and the Maple Leafs.

Holtby! Too cool,

I hate that my posts here keep coming to this buut...

my childhood teammates won gold over the weekend in the Woman's tourney.
Bailey Bram and Jocelyn Laroque. Too cool for them.

Ovie will be the best player in the world when someone straightens his ass out (never going to happen). Until then it's either Crosby or Malkin with Stamkos hanging around in third.

Don't count out Fleury yet, proven winner on lots of stages, I think if you check this whole thread I've repeated Bryz was a lousy choice. It's a shame cause I think that Flyers team with a healthy Chris Pronger and a legitimate number one goalie is a cup team, maybe next year.

Nope, from LA. Land of the Queens and Clucks. Perennial losers, too.

At least I still have the Clippers, they got some respect after years of jabs from my friends and Jay Leno.

I never see any games televised, even when Doug Flutie was tearing it up.

You know the drill, let Pitt score first

The B's have to win today or it's tee time.

Ride into battle and chop off their heads :-)

I'm putting my 2¢ in for the Flyers, now that the Sharks are out.:(

Junior Flyers are facing Vacaville Jets for the final game of the season today. That means Dad (me) gets to drive 75 miles to the game. That's west coast hockey for ya.

25 game suspension. Wow, Shanaban is laying down the LAW. Totorella thinks Neil should be suspended too, Totorella thinks the camera should pan to him more often so he can talk.

Same here in Ontario with all the tournaments etc. If your a sports parent, you're driving! Actually I hear dance is worse!! Thousands of $ on costumes, brutal competition etc.
Malkin just scored.

LOL! Torts is great entertainment.
I like the suspension. Torres is a repeat offender.

It was pretty stupid of the Pens to play Fleury in net so religiously. OTOH, Bryzgalov stopped 96.8% of the shots he faced today.

Fleury wasn't very impressive at all, granted Philly has some goal scorers but either Fleury had a bad series or he's not in the top tier.

What a way for Vancouver to say bye bye... first series and in OT!

Yeah, Canucks have the most futile and pathetic playoff record in NHL history. I sometimes wonder if it's somewhat the fan's fault (always expecting the worst) or if it's just the roll of the dice.

Canucks choke. I shed a tear...not.
B's hanging on, great first round!!
If I'm a Flyers fan I'm real worried about Bryz. Neither goalie played playoff caliber net, and your getting smoked if you don't have great goaltending.
