Don't you spend half of your Twitter energy on the topic of https? And admonishing those that don't use it? What gives, cadey?

Yeah, it's been fairly shit from a neutral's perspective.

I mean, Boston won last night, but they shot only 36% from the floor. That's some fairly shit basketball, right there.

NFL to Punish Players Who Don't Stand During Anthem

So, the president of the USA had this to say about those that would take a knee during the playing of the national anthem:

"You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn't be playing, you shouldn't be there. Maybe you shouldn't be in the country"

Is this now a 1st amendment situation? You know, now that the figurehead of our government has said that you should be deported if you don't stand for the anthem?

Is it just me, or has the BOS v CLE series thus far been kinda bad basketball?

NFL to Punish Players Who Don't Stand During Anthem

I've been watching mostly PBS cooking shows on Sunday afternoons. I'll flip over to a Panthers game every once in a while just to see what's up, but the time spent on the game certainly has been dwindling as of late.

It's official, David Tepper is now the owner of the Carolina Panthers. It was a straight up cash sale so it could be done quick fast and in a hurry.

am not naive. I will leave it to the rest of you to determine whether or not I fit the second qualification.

Don't you need to be a billionaire to afford all those ding dang ol' NBA games?

Vegas Golden Knights Advance to Stanley Cup Final

I don't remember any issues with Carolina's ice in 2002 or 2006 when they were in the Cup Finals. But back then, they had an ice guy that was among the tops in the league. One of his negotiation points was that the team buy him a top of the line RV and park it in the arena parking lot so he could live there. Unfortunately, he died of a heart attack a few years ago, but I'm not hearing any problems with the ice still. Alas, the ding dongs need to actually make the playoffs before we can find out exactly how well the ice stays together in June.

Has there been a demographics study done on the 20 active users of this site that shows us to be all naive billionaires or something? I mean, this isn't exactly the most active of forums, so why all the spammer ireallyneedsomeonetowriteanessayforme activity?

Vegas Golden Knights Advance to Stanley Cup Final

Good for them. It's a pretty damned amazing feat.

It must be pointed out that the St Louis Blues advancing to the Stanley Cup Final in their inaugural season was a *much* easier road than Vegas'. In 1967-68, all of the Original Six franchises were in the East and all of the expansion franchises in the West. So yeah, good for the Blues and all, but Vegas had to actually play established franchises during the playoffs this season.

The World's Oldest Basketball Court is in Canada

Ah yes, I remember seeing that first game there. Lemme tell you, no one could set shot a ball into an ice bucket like ol' Ada MacKenzie Tizzard could. This while on the finest peat bog whiskey you could find.

NBC really dropped the ball (puck?) in not having John Forslund call this game. Forslund, btw, is the Hurricanes' TV play by play guy.

Nashville Predators, coached by Peter Laviolette, vs Winnipeg Jets, coached by Paul Maurice (The Grover Cleveland of the Hurricanes), face off for a deciding game seven tonight. The winner of this game not only moves on to the Western Conference finals, but they also win the highly coveted 'Canes Cup. The loser of this game is still happy to not be in Raleigh at the moment.

Jesus and Muhammad are cool with each other. I'm sure that Muhammad wishes that Jesus would stop telling people he's God and that he came back to life, but, overall, they're cool. I can see Moses (in the style of al-Khidr) having to come between them everyone once in a while to tell them "knock it off, you clowns."

My only sports related moment during my long weekend in eastern NC was driving through Hertford, Catfish Hunter's hometown. I feel kinda special right now.

(I highly suggest spending a few nights in historic Edenton, NC. The town has done an outstanding job of preserving many of the 18th century houses there.)
