Majority of my evenings these past couple of weeks have been occupied by the NBA and NHL playoffs. I was following my hockey team and the last Cdn team left in the playoffs: the Vancouver Canucks. Despite never having won the Stanley Cup, I, like many fans, hope season after season that the team will eventually make it. Unfortunately, the Canucks lost to the Blackhawks on game 6. I actually thought they might force a game 7 especially since Luongo was playing really well. Oh well, there’s always next season. Sidenote…I still cannot believe that Sundin is not a Maple Leaf anymore.
The NBA playoffs have been thrilling to say the least and it has not come close to ending just yet. Game 7 on Sunday for the Magic and Celtics for the East and the Lakers and Rockets for the West. I’m picking the Celtics to face the Cavaliers for the Eastern Conference Finals. The Western Conference Finals is hard to gauge though. Like many individuals, I thought the Rockets’ chances were over the minute Yao Ming became injured. Of course, much to everyone’s surprise they crushed the Lakers the next game. During the first half in tonight’s game, I thought they might repeat the trampling again. It wasn’t a terrible beating, but the Rockets did win to force a game 7. I just hope that both games will not be blowouts on Sunday. How awesome would it be to have seats to these games!
Random sidenote: Barkley fully did not do 30 proper push-ups. It was amusing watching the push-up contest though.
