Default The Sports Thread

Post about sports in here. We've got baseball, basketball, and hockey fans -- and probably some other sport enthusiasts around here, too. Got something you want to say about a sport, a team, a player, a policy? Post it here.

Also, hockey sucks. :D

Hockey is a real man's sport because the numbers on the scoreboard at the end are low.

Hmmm... I must cheer you up! But how... Oh!

Boy, Nami, I sure do love the Yankees. They're so historic and successful and such. Plus my mom grew up a few blocks away from the stadium. Oh, those Yankees.

Since I'm in New York, and both of our baseball teams got new stadiums this year, we went to a game for each team last year. The Yankee game got rained out and we were able to exchange our tickets for a later game. Which leads to the interesting situation of going to two different Yankee Stadiums with one ticket.

I'm a Mets fan myself, but you know... history. I got to go to Yankee Stadium before it was torn down, which I think is pretty cool.

I forgot the playoffs started until about 120 AM, so I only caught the last 5 minutes of the Blues-Canucks game. It was pretty damn good, though.

they could have been 2nd too. Western conference is packed. I actually would have picked them to get out of the first round if they had ended up with either the 2nd or 3rd seeds too. Now I'm pretty sure they are going to lose to the Blazers.

Also looks like KG is missing the playoffs, so bad news for the Celtics.

They had second for so long, too. I didn't even know what their seed would be until last night was over, and when I found out, I was like, "What the fuck?"

I'm with the Blue Jays. Hopefully them being first in the division can stay :(

Unless the Yankees, Red Sox, and Rays collapse, not gonna happen. The Orioles have one hell of an offense this year, but they don't have the pitching to stay. Still, the Jays have a shot so long as Halladay's healthy, their offense keeps pumping along, and, say, McGowan comes back and is dominant. It's a good division.

There is no frown face emoticon frowny enough to convey my feelings about yesterday's Yankee game.

They did make up for it today, though, sals. Ironic loss for Pavano -- he finally pitched well in a Yankee Stadium, but his bullpen blew it.

Yeah, I heard about his third one. Four is even more nuts. You know Boras has to be all over this kid already.
