The Sens!

Well the Senators will have to really pull it together, the challenge is huge. The Ducks are showing great character, and outplaying us. As of tonight we're down 3-1, stats have nothing to do with it, but only three teams have ever turned the machine around when down 2-0 in a stanley cup final, the last one was in 1971 and it was the Montreal Canadians. I imagine the odds at 3-1 are even worse. My heart is with the Sens - let's root for them to make history.

On a lighter note, on Saturday I went to the game with two guys from Macadamian, we had decided to draw the tickets we have to the team. So off I go with Vincent and Jeannot - we get there, and we buy 50/50 tickets, something I rarely do. During the game they draw the number, I have all the numbers except for the last 2, I have 63 and the winner is 75, I think that was close, the guy who wone bought shortly after me - guess who is the guy who bought after me? One hint - he is three seats down from me, screaming and his lighten with a bright smile, it's Jeannot - he made a cool chunk of change that night winning the 50/50. It's just like winning the lottery, he didn't go to bed for a really long time, just could not sleep. Awesome, Congrats Jeannot.

On another note I just learned tonight that the reason players are growing beards during the final is not just superstition, apparently the rumor has it - it would have something to do with Lord Stanley himself who had a beard of his own - I don't know if this is true.
