We are in the midst of both the NBA and NHL playoffs. I thought I'd check in and share my initial thoughts with more detailed blogs to follow as the playoffs heat up. First, the NBA playoffs - the general concept is FUCK THE LAKERS! I wll vote for any team that plays against the Lakers until the Lakers are out of the playoffs or end up winning it all (like last year, which sucked alot). I'm happy to see that the OKC/LA series is tied at 2-2, with the Thunder running and gunning and definitely wearing the Lakers out. Even if OKC does not win the series (not very likely, but a small possibility), I hope they take the Lakers the distance and prevent them from getting much rest before the next series. So for now, GO THUNDER!
Unlike the NBA playoffs, I definitely have a favorite in the NHL playoffs, the Pittsburgh Penguins. While there are many good teams in the NHL, I love the way the Pens play hockey. They also won me money last year when they won it all. I am voting for them to do it again this year. They have just completed their first round series against the Ottawa Senators. They didnt play as well as I expected thus far, but seem to be getting it together going into the second round. While I am voting (and betting) for the Penguins, I also want to say FUCK THE WASHINGTON CAPITALS! I want them out of the playoffs and since theyre having trouble with the 8th seed Montreal Canadiens, I believe I will get my wish with the Capitals being ejected from the playoffs. To recap - GO PENS and FUCK THE CAPS!
