    Nuff said is right. WOOHOO! It was good talking to you last night and let’s hope the Wolfpack can have that good of a season. :-)

    At least someone is happy. Was looking forward to having the cup in Canada for the first time in 13 years. You have to love when a major sports playoffs come down to a one game winner takes all. The NHL got lucky with these playoffs and may have brought fan interest back quicker because of it.

    Congrats!

    I broke out my Whaler’s jersey for the first time (ever). An official Kevin “Dineen” game jersey/antique that I’ve never worn.

    Up here in CT there are still a lot of mixed feelings over whether to cheer or feel resentful (to the ownership group for leaving Hartford) but we’re all happy for the players and the hockey part of the organization.

    I’m glad someone in the States noticed.

    I have to say, I was rooting for Edmonton (being Canadian and all), but after the Canes defeated my Habs (*sniff sniff*) I just didn’t have the same gusto for it.

    What a HECK of a series though. Anyone that says hockey isn’t the greatest game is nuts! Speed, hitting, scoring…come on people! Love it! Sadly, it doesn’t play as well on TV because of the fast-paced action…people just need bigger TVs.

    Congratz to the Canes and to Canes fans. And old Whaler fans…

    Where the series lacked in audience interest (just lil’ ole Carolina) it sure made up for in excitement.

    I agree that TV doesn’t do hockey justice. Even watching on a big screen in HD, doesnt compare to being there.

    You’ve not seen real athletes until you’ve seen hockey players.

    Andy – if you’re ever in Montreal during the hockey season I’ll take you to a game.

    I’ve had season tickets for a few years, but I go less and less as life gets busier and busier.

    And you’re right: hockey has to be enjoyed live, which is a shame in some ways for hockey since they can’t get the huge TV audience they need in the US. Although, who knows, with the way the game is unfolding: faster, more action — it has to catch on more and more eventually.

    Thanks for the kind offer, if I am lucky enough to be in Montreal, I’ll take you up on that. :-)
