GO FLYERS!!!!!!!!!

The Flyers dominated the Canadiens in the semi-final round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs, winning 4 games to 1. Now they will face the winner of the Pittsburgh-New York Rangers series. Sould be good hockey! The Flyers have been "my team" since they came into the league 40 odd years ago. I can definitely relate to all of you Cubs fans out there. It's been 33 years since the Flyers won Lord Stanley's Cup. Will this be the year? Could it be? We'll see. They are playing very well right now. Of course, they've played well in previous years, too. They've come close.... They've gotten me high and then broken my heart. We're a family of Flyers fans. Well, all of us but Jackal and Eric. Eric is a die hard Redwings fan. Jackal is all about the Stars.

Back up to the Ingawanis Boy Scout Camp this morning for MTB racing. Time trials yesterday. The weather is perfect this year. More later, along with pics.

Gotta go! Jackal will pick me up soon.

Ride Safe.

Peace out, yo!

I feel for you. Yet another heartbreak is about to be visited on you at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penquins. Maybe Biron should try banging his stick against the pipes as a distraction, ala Ron Hextall (sp?). Other than that, I see no options for your team.

GO RED WINGS! :^)
Hate to hand you another year of despair but the Wings are going to take it!
Just kidding. I really have no idea. But I do have to support the home-town boys.
Good luck!

Our Sens started out like stink on fire and totally tanked! It was surprising to see the Canadiens play so well.

Umberger got lucky on the goal off of Richard's glove. Another 4 months and it starts all over again! LOL....

33 years? You can't relate to anything, dude. It's been 58 YEARS since the Cubs have even been in the World Series.

Of course ... I wasn't yet born when the Flyers won the Cup, so maybe I should keep quiet.

after 25 years without winning the big prize you quit counting. that's how it is. 33, 58... it doesn't matter. there's always "next year" :) you weren't around in '75? hmmmmmmm.....

I was likely not even a thought in 1975.
