Aye, What Channel Does Hockey Come On?

The Stanley Cup is on!? I had absolutely no clue. It’s funny because it was on around this same time last year, and the year before. Since I haven’t watched NBC on a normal basis in who knows how long, the chances of me catching any bit of the series is -1 in 0.

Aside from the fact that I have never watched a complete hockey game on television, there’s no need for me to venture to NBC, especially since the NBA finals are on ABC. Oh yeah, and the basic tv channels never get any attention from me unless big televised events of my interest are airing.

Hockey can only retain my attention when there’s a fight, plain and simple. I discussed this factor when I was talking about the Indy 500 and I equated hockey fights to racing car crashes. I know, childish right?

The Boston Bruins VS Vancouver Canucks, and I have no idea who the fuck is better. The Canucks got the series lead 2-0, and since I don’t know who’s good on either team then I guess the Canucks are. I can’t wait to not care who wins the Stanley Cup this year!


Jason Terry VS Miami’s Bench

I just wanna point out a few stats about game 2 that might shed light on the lopsided advantage Dallas has over Miami.

Jason Terry in Game 2: 31 MIN, 16 PTS, 6-6 FT, 58.7% TS.

Entire MIA bench: 70 MIN, 11 PTS, 2-4 FT, 34.9% TS.

That there is where the game was truly won. Lookout Jason Terry, Miami will be doing their best to make up for this loss in game 3.
