Looks like we got us a Preds/Pens Stanley Cup Final. Game 1 is Monday night. Go Preds!

If the Preds lose, the league won't have to donate their pre-printed championship shirts and caps to kids in Uganda.

Anything with the Predators logo on it will be eagerly snapped up by Luis Suarez fans around the world.

Sometimes a bad call by an umpire against your team works out in your favor. The Boston Red Sox tied a major league record for strikeouts in one game lst night, but it took an erroneous replay decision to set it up. My take is that for the plate umpire to see a batter being hit on the foot is very difficult, since you are often blocked by the catcher. The 3rd base umpire would have the clearest view, but he is positioned close to 100 feet away, and unless it is crystal clear, he will not usually make such a ruling. Chalk this one up to MLB's error.
