Is there some big events upcoming?
What's that you say? It isn't that the World Inline Championships are starting this week (true story)?
Oh! It's the Stanley Cup Final!
And what a Final it promises to be. Somehow, I get the sense that this will be one of the more entertaining matchups in recent years.
Be it because of the goaltending show Jonathan Quick and Martin Brodeur are likely to put on, the stellar performances from Dustin Brown and Ilya Kovalchuk, the inevitable big hits or the fact that these teams are such ridiculous underdogs.
Fun times are ahead. Don't you think?
