Is it just me or did the first round of the NHL playoffs seem like it lasted for a month?  Let me re-phrase that.  Didn’t the first round of the Eastern Conference NHL playoffs seem to go on forever?  Even the final game of the final series just refused to end!  When the Devils’ Adam […]


Now you know why I decided not to prognosticate beyond the first round of the NHL playoffs.  This is the one sport that you can count on upsets throughout the brackets.  It’s also the only sport that allows the top seeds to face the bottom seeds in every round, so you really don’t know who […]


My apologies for taking a week off from this feature, but I’m sure you’ll agree that I have made up for it with this week’s hit.  Most people have seen this hit by now, but only those that actually watched the game saw it at real time speed, rather than slow motion, which depicts it […]
