Rumble in the Jungle - The Finals Begin....

The Stanley Cup finals begin on Monday. Yes, it's been almost a week since the Wings-Ducks series was over. Yes, the NHL is on their knees to American television coverage. They want games on Saturday but this Saturday, there is some dumbass ice show in Anaheim so the league basically pushed the series back days to accommodate NBC who will be showing games 3-7 (baring of course any horse races).

The Stanley Cup is coming home. Yes, I am predicting an Ottawa Senators victory. I am 13-1 in my playoff predictions, and yes that also means I'm brilliant. It also means I'm cheering for Comrie over Pronger. I'm not really cheering for baby Mike, cause he's not an integral part of the Sens team. Yes, his name will be on the Cup but big freakin' deal. It's better to have his name than Chrissy's name on the Cup. Priorities folks....

So yes Ottawa will win the Cup. Sure, I am biased against the Mighty Dicks but I truly believe Ottawa is a better team. Anyone who will pick the Dicks will say they have more than one line of scoring. But Ottawa has been getting scoring throughout their lineup and sure, they've depended heavily on the Heatley-Alfredsson-Spezza line but that's a helleva line. There is no stopping them. Plus Emery is heads above Giguere, who is a total headcase. It'll be easy to get him off his game. In addition, he really hasn't been spectacular. His team in front of him has been carrying him. So Ottawa's top line and goalie will win this series in 5 games. Yes I'm staying with Ottawa and 5 games. I've called Sens in 5 each round and that shall not change!

GO SENS!! All of Canada is behind you (okay Toronto isn't but who gives a shit about them? They're just a bunch of self-indulgent arrogant pansies who won't support Canada's team. Fuck em).

GO SENS!!

I hate hearing how Toronto is "Canada's Team".....for me to poop on, like Triumph on Conan would say.

Pronger will be crying duckie tears soon. And I will be laughing at him.

I think the Sens can take it, but I worry about Emery. He's not as solid as he could be. And now since they've had so much time off, it will either be a good thing or a bad thing.

Thanks for the draft pick Duckies -welcome to second place!

Can anyone remember off hand if articles such as TSN.ca's current "Canada behind Ducks" or w/e it was called were run regarding the Oilers and Flames? 'Cause those fuckers aren't appealing to the no-Cup-for-FCP masses West of Dryden like they should be. Mind you, I know ~30 people from that town and they've all said Chris is a dick too.

Scarlett said...

I think everyone agrees that Chris is a dick. lol. But I'm not sure about the articles.

Yeah Shannon, I agree. He's had some shakey moments, but he outplayed Brodeur easily. So he should be okay...I hope!

Scarlett said...

lol D....love Triumph!!!

Emery will be all right. He'll smarten up for the next game.

D. said...

Scarlett, you'll have to get on your mic for the next game. I'm kind of worried. Having to win is such a long haul!

Scarlett said...

I've been neglecting the mic...I won't that happen again.

D. said...

Did you check the batteries in your mic? I think they were dead tonight!

Scarlett said...

I was screaming like crazy. They were ignoring me so some reason. Damn stupid hockey players!!!

the weaz said...

I like the new look.

D. said...

Well, so much for that. Thanks a lot, Sens.
