Bruins in 6
Crawford for Conn Smythe
That's totally incorrect. After the 1967 expansion, Original Six teams still faced each other 6 more times in the next 12 seasons. The last time was in 1979 (Canadiens vs. Rangers).
You're right, of course, Snewter99...I promise to never again do historical NHL research after a night of drinking...

Oh, for those not paying attention, the Finals are Chicago vs. Boston...
posted by MeatSaber at 02:01 AM on June 09
Now, I'm usually "meh" on any Finals matchup that doesn't involve the Winged Wheel, but I'm actually a little juiced about this one. Seems like a good challenge for both teams, and should be a great series. Anyway, here's the standings so far:
Now, the picks for the Finals are slightly different. Pick your winner, the number of games, and also your Conn Smythe prediction. Winner gets you 2 points, # of games gets you 1 point, and picking the Conn Smythe winner will net you 3 points. This game is still up in the air folks, so get those picks in...
I don't get why the NBA is able to fine him $75K for this, but the floppers from earlier in the series can only be fined a 5K max. Are there different rules for in-game infractions as opposed to post-game interview infractions?

Ok, it's simple: pick the winner of each playoff matchup, and how many games each series will go. You'll get 2 points for picking the winner, and 1 point for the number of games (you do not have to get both right to get the three points, they are mutually exclusive). Here are the matchups, higher seed to the left...
Pittsburgh vs NY Islanders
Montreal vs Ottawa
Washington vs NY Rangers
Boston Vs Toronto
Chicago vs Minnesota
Anaheim vs Detroit
Vancouver vs San Jose
St Louis vs Los Angeles
So get those picks in. I'll be lax on cutoff, because games start tomorrow night, but not *too* lax. Good luck...

As a Canadian, all of our sports networks are based in Toronto, so we get prioritized coverage of the Leafs on 3 different networks. 24 hours a day. 365 days a year.

Cracked would be a great site if A) it didn't insist on splitting articles over multiple pages to boost ad views, and B) was actually funny.
Cracked can be hit or miss with the comedy, but I find some of their articles to be interesting without necessarily being funny. As for the multiple pages, I figure if I haven't learned anything or laughed in the first page, there's no sense continuing. They gotta earn my clicks...
I do find some of their videos to be hilarious, though. After Hours is a particular fave...

how many championship games have you impacted? Rice's 49ers were 3-0 in Super Bowls, and he won the MVP in the first. How about you?
And if football was 1-on-1, this would matter. Chauncey Billups won a ring and a finals MVP, but are you going to tell me he was a better point guard than John Stockton?
Moss has to at least be in a conversation of greatest WRs, just based on his numbers. If Rice's stats are the baseline, he's right on par with him...

True. But when Lewis uses the huge media platform granted him at the end of playoff victories to glorify God and profess his religious faith, should we pretend he didn't say anything on the grounds that we're intruding on a private matter?
Not at all. In fact, I tire of all the Christian grandstanding every time I see someone of Lewis's ilk win something. I'm just saying that anyone, outside of God, who chooses not to forgive or redeem Lewis is ultimately talking to a wall. In their eyes, only God can redeem them, so I doubt he gives a flying f**k what insomnyuk or any of us other mortals think...
posted by MeatSaber at 06:41 PM on January 21
There's no basis to forgive and accept the redemption of someone who won't say exactly what he did.
As far as I know, it's not you that gets to do the forgiving or redeeming, but God. Your opinions on these matters should mean nothing to a Christian. But, I'm not a Christian, so I could be wrong...
