Penguins Win Lord Stanley's Cup

Just finished gaming with the Friday night group (more on that later today or tomorrow), and catching up with the hockey news.

The Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Detroit Red Wings, in Detroit, 2-1, to win the Stanley Cup. Wow! Sidney Crosby hoisted Lord Stanley's hardware, the youngest team captain ever to do so. The Penguins showed the grit and the willingness to do what had to be done tonight to take the Cup from a team that had a dynasty going. Does this mean that the Penguins have just taken the first step towards a new dynasty?

In any event, while I haven't been able to get excited about the whole Stanley Cup thing (after all, there were no Canadian teams left at the end!), my thoughts have been more on the whole Dany Heatley mess here in Ottawa, and the shake-up that it's going to require. I suspect the Senators are about to embark on a rebuilding phase, but we'll just have to see.

In the meantime, congrats to Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and the Penguins! Hoist that Cup high, boys...you've earned it!

GMS Birthday

Happy birthday, gmskarka!!

Turning 40 is a good milestone, not as good as turning 50 is (trust me on this!). May the Goddess bless you with good health, good fortune, and prosperity for the year to come, and may your work in the gaming industry be profitable, non-stressful, and make you peaceful and content.

Have a terrific birthday, GMS. :)
