The Chicago Blackhawks are the Stanley Cup Champions, and it is well deserved. Like them or not they just kicked ass.. They never quit during the playoffs. It didn’t matter if they were down in the series or the game, they just kept fighting.
The series against Tampa Bay was no different.. The Bolts are a hell of a team, and they played damn good, but things just didn’t work in their favor in game 6. Not to mention in game 6 the score was misleading. As many shots that each team had on goal and the chances they had to score you would have thought the score would have been 15-12. It was crazy good!
I can’t believe that I was cheering for the Hawks during the finals, but I had a friendly wager against a friend and he wanted the Bolts. It was tough cheering for them after the hurtin’ they put on the Anaheim Ducks. At the end of the day it all worked out, because I won and have bragging rights for another year… so it was worth it..
I do not understand how hockey is not more popular. The game is fast, non-stop action, and it’s intensity in ten cities. Even if you don’t care who wins.. The games are usually close and just the brutality of the checking, and the athleticism of the players is just incredible.
I am getting to the point where I might have to question my friends who do not like the game of hockey. It could become as serious as not liking AC/DC or Motorhead. I might have to re-think why we are friends.
I also heard some random facts about the Stanley Cup Trophy the other day on the radio and thought I would share those..
