The Stanley Cup Finals start tomorrow!


Listen up, fellow hockey fans! The Vancouver Canucks will beat the Boston Bruins to win this year's Stanley Cup and here is why --

Every time the Olympics are held in Canada, the host city's NHL team wins the Stanley Cup the very next year. Here are the cold hard facts, my friends, as reported by the Canadian media.

Montreal hosted the 1976 Summer Olympics. The 1977 Stanley Cup champions? The Montreal Canadiens.

Calgary hosted the 1988 Winter Olympics. The 1989 Stanley Cup champions? The Calgary Flames.

Vancouver hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics. The 2011 Stanley Cup champions? Do the math. I rest my case.

Go Canucks go!

Oh hell yeah! I can't wait! It's such a big deal for us over here in Vancouver. It's hard to believe that it has been 17 years since we were this close, but I really think this is our year! Thanks for cheering us on! - G

And husband said the Bruins are in the finals. First time in years and years. Not that I'm for them. Just saying.

Haven't been involved with hockey since way back in the 90's. When I discovered this hot lookin' guy on Montreal Canadians. -grin- That was wayyyyyy back when not all wore a helmet. So his gorgeous black hair and *purrrddddddy* face were out there to see, all the time.

Yeah, he's probably in some long-term-care facility for head injuries now. But....... That was then.

Good luck to your team!

dbs said...

Whoa. Cool.

Leviathan said...

The 'nucks have an awesome team, very talented, no doubt. The series will hinge on the performance of Tim Thomas, Boston's goalie.

I'm very sad this time of year. After this series is over...no hockey for four months!

Debra, are you happy about hockey returning to Winnipeg?

Go Penguins 2011-2012.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Leviathan, I am ECSTATIC that NHL hockey is returning to Winnipeg! I was living in Winnipeg in 1996 when the Jets left and believe me, it was a grim day in The Peg, man, grim.
