[quote=molds13;66801]Wings in 6.[/quote] Agreed. I may be biased against them but I don't see the Ducks winning this series.

Wings will dominate :)
I swear this is the NBA thread. Not to mention it is the Bruins year.
The NHL has to infiltrate all the other pro sports threads because it doesn't get enough love ;) It is totally the Bruins year! I can feel it! (though it may not be their game right now, B's aren't doing so hot but I have faith they can pull off some magic)
Aww man, I wished I watched Hockey. I feel sooo out of the loop. All I ever hear about on ESPN is Ovechkin and Crosby.

It really isn't a series between the Capitals and Pens, but a showcase of Ovechkin v. Crosby. Which is fine with me if it brings more viewers to the NHL.
[quote=Bacchus;66351]Alright..I have avoided this thread like the black death.... But calling Rondo out. He is playing to win an NBA ring. Leave him alone. He is a player. A monster. A machine. He will do what it takes to prove himself amongst superstars. Can you imagine being Rondo amongst his cast? Frak. Rondo is good. And yet he is the 4th, maybe 5th best player on this team? He will fight for our pride. All this Celtic hate. Maybe you guys need a "banner session" at The Garden... It is interesting how people need a reminder who the current NBA Champions are, or who the all time champions are with 17 rings..[/quote] That's the nature of the beast, people get booed, that's when you know you're good when the opposing team is booing you- he should relish that. I actually cheer for Boston against everyone EXCEPT the Bulls (I'm a Chicagoan, we ride or die or with our teams no matter how much terrible they are) mainly because I'm a huge Garnett fan and was super excited when he got to be somewhere where he had an opportunity to win big. I'm not saying Rondo isn't good, he's great, he fights hard and he has the jewelry to prove it, that goes without saying. But he IS a dirty player he always has been - that clothesline shot was just one of several examples. But I'm glad to see the Celtics back doing well, you know, since before that they were sucking for like 20 years, only took a Chicagoan to turn things around. . .

If not, you'd better look in the mirror, lol. The Bulls have been all sorts of suck for over a decade. Not to mention they sucked in the 60's, the 70's and the 80's. We could fill the United Center will Hall of Famer Celtic alum! :wink2:

Very mean to throw my hypocrisy back in my face by the way. But actually I feel somewhat of a kinship with Bostonians in that I think they like Chicagoans stick with our teams through rain and shine, good times or bad, dynasties and curses. And when we win, we rub it in everyone's faces. . .repeatedly.

I forgive you :drinks: Tough one for the Celtics last night but at least they showed signs of life. Happy the Lakers lost though.
election day here, Hall of Famer Dave Bing running for Mayor. During the last election he was outside our voting precinct and my husband was annoyed with the crowd, I whispered, 'Dave Bing, Dave Bing, Dave Bing' he must've heard me commenting turned around and shook our hands, I was like, 'nice to meet you, sorry I didn't vote for you' :p
never heard of him. is he responsible?
Sensible business man that has never held office, he has the endorsement of the man I would've liked to see as mayor and voted for the last 3 times *sigh* I'm voting after work and still undecided.

Both Bing and Cockrel would be pretty decent I think. P.S. Good on you for voting!

Also, is it just me or am i the only one who hates the NBA now? I mean its nothing but newbies.
[QUOTE=Zachary;67517]His name sounded so familiar. Also, is it just me or am i the only one who hates the NBA now? I mean its nothing but newbies.[/QUOTE] Maybe. I for one find it extremely interesting that people my age are doing some ridiculous things and enjoy watching them play.
[quote=molds13;67513]Well, I don't think whoever wins could be any worse than good old Kwame! Both Bing and Cockrel would be pretty decent I think. P.S. Good on you for voting![/quote] Exactly, it would take a TON to be worse than our last mayor (who I did not vote for either time lol). My husband works for the city and is content with his boss currently (appointed by Cockerel) he doesn't want another change so if I vote for Bing he'll be annoyed haha. I liked the NBA about 5-10 years ago, I'm still bitter this year, but I think even before this year it's not what I am used to and what I like.
I miss the greats like Larry Byrd, Michael Jordan, etc.

I think it's just a whole different game.
[QUOTE=Zachary;67525]I miss the greats like Larry Byrd, Michael Jordan, etc.[/QUOTE] You mean Larry BIRD? You're watching the future Michael Jordans and Larry Birds. You just don't realize it yet.
