Put MAF back in goal for game 7   I think he deserves it even though he likely wouldn't be back with the Pens next year 

Pretty hard to blame Murray for a whole lot though. 

Anderson played out of his mind last night.

I enjoy hockey on the rare occasion I see it, but I passed through Nashville yesterday after spending time with some folks from there and wow, that town is on fire for the Predators.

Their passion is contagious, because I watched my first Stanley Cup final Monday night and had a great time watching it.

Catfish on the ice - hilarious!

Delay of game. Stupid. Not even a real tradition like the octopus.

That and the TTUN-inspired goal chant.

Oh well. At least its a competitive series so far.

M<an, i've never been less enthused about a final. Only Montreal could have made this final worse. IDGAF about Nashville, and I hate the Pens (even though I grew up near enough Crosby and like him quite a bit. We played in the sames league in HS (QMJ) but my time was well before his. I did play with Roberto Luongo for two seasons of QMJ in highschool. I was his right side first line defence. 

And the three days between games for this final. WTF. Mon-Thurs-Sun? Why not Mon-Wed-Fri-Sun. the way it is supposed to be.

Oh yeah. Sorry about that. I sent the NHL a memo at the beginning of the season about my availability to watch the games. Told em tonight, Friday and Saturday were out of the question.

It has been a disappointing playoff. The only good about it is that the B-ruins and Leafies are on the ole golf course with the Habs.

Don't feel like watching hockey. It's already June! Was interested in last two rounds but couldn't care less now 

Like the Preds but feeling Pens will find a way to win They always seem to pull the plug on the other team in game 7

Agreed, but all traditions got their start from somewhere...

Most do. Playoff beard, anyone?

Stuff I've read suggests it goes back to the 1980's New York Islander dynasty. Think Butch Goring.

Yeah, 80s Islanders.

And the octopus dates back to when it took eight wins to take the Stanley Cup.

Is it really asking too much to have both teams show up at the rink on the same night?

Gotta say though, it was still an entertaining game!

I'm guessing Nashville fans might not agree though.

    • I do rest my driver on the ground. In fact, I tap my driver to make sure the head is sitting on solid ground.  I have an odd setup for my driver. If anyone were to watch me from behind, they’d think I am setting up for a practice swing because the ball and my club head are nowhere near each other! 
    • I have golf trips to Hawaii every year and I fly with Alaska Air. I pack EVERYTHING  into the golf bag so I don’t have to check another bag in. So far no issues. I lock my bag with a TSA approved lock and they always open and rearrange my things. And I always pack to the limit of 50lbs!
    • I believe the issue with distance is small and easily addressed.  Here are my thoughts: Let's say in the not too distant future the PGA tour is made up of guys that look more like long drive competitors.  Big tall muscular athletes that instead of going to the MLB or NFL see a more viable future in golf with distance being at the forefront.   There will still be your sharp shooters that can hit a 7 iron with the same accuracy as some of the bombers hit a wedge but they will be much more rare. When this is the case, they might have to build new longer golf courses that suit these super athletes or expand the existing ones in length.  Why is this a problem?  You only need enough courses to provide a year's worth of weekend tournament play.  These courses can have a much larger gap in the tee blocks so amateur short hitters can still play the courses if they want to see what a golf course played by the big boys feels like.  All the other golf courses in existence can remain the same because as previously mentioned they will still suit >99% of the golfing population.  If you are in the <1% of the golfing population who can hit 340+ yard drives while keeping the ball in play most of the time, then yeah, you are going to over power a lot of old golf courses, congratulations.  If you get really good maybe you can make the PGA Tour and play the big boy courses. A lot of the old history rich courses are going to become obsolete to these new super athletes.  So the tour can do one of two things.  Stop playing there because times have changed and it is what it is.  Or they are treated as separate events with a different set of rules (equipment restrictions).  
    • No they wouldn't..lol. But that was entertaining.
    • Haven't been keeping up with posting in this thread so here are my scores the past month. Been in a slump since about mid Jan, starting to come out of it. Part of it is also how hard the course is playing this time of year, not much grass on the fairways, greens are firm and fast and really tough to get it up and down off the dormant bermuda. Good news is my handicap is going up 👍
