I think the Blackhawks will make it to the last round.
Personally I'm devoted to the Bossier City/ Shreveport Mudbugs.
The Jets have done so well in Phoenix, maybe they need to go home.

I'm a Wings fan.  What can I say?  They're the one team we have in this state that doesn't consistently suck.  Well, okay.  The Tigers do okay sometimes.

I have to hate the Wings as a Stars fan, but secretly I hope Modano gets like 20 goals in the playoffs, just to stick it to the Stars "management".

Heh.  That would be hilarious.

And I'm going into my usual Playoffs mode: Watch Detroit and hope they win.  If they lose, anyone but Pittsburgh is cool.  ;D

Living in the South, I don't get all the hockey love.  But then, I'm not a big sports fan, either.  I watch playoffs with my dad because, well, my dad likes to watch them, and it's more fun with other people present.

I do appreciate that hockey officially recognizes that you simply have to throw off your gloves and bust someone upside the head, every now and again.
There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."

Hockey's the only sport I watch and care anything about.  The others all bore the hell out me.

I'm lived in the south my entire life, and I'm proud of it.

I also think that hockey is the greatest (team) sport on Earth.  If you look there really is a pretty shocking amount of hockey down here, most good size cities have a minor league team.

Eh, lots of northerners don't get the South's love of NASCAR either.

I understand a bit of it.  Comes from a father with a love for it.

My fiction character, Nas, was a NASCAR driver.

I don't get NASCAR at all.  In fact, I hate NASCAR.  If I wanted to watch cars drive around for six hours I'd go sit by the freeway.

But it's not just Southerners that love it, it's popular as hell up here too.  I just don't get it.

It's racing for people with ADD.
Power corrupts.
Absolute power is kinda neat.

How?  They go around in a circle for HOURS.  Straight, then turn left.  Straight, then turn left.  Rinse and repeat.  How would someone with ADD find that attractive?

TOTALLY BORING!!  Oh, hey Fritos!
