Chicks dig hockey. That has been well established. But The World of Isaac has put together a collection of hot chicks posing with the Stanley Cup. And here is another one of my personal favorites. Do you ever see chicks giving that much love to the Lombardi Trophy? Or the thing that NBA gives out? Score this as another victory for hockey.
The Stanley Cup finals are pretty interesting. You have the premier team in the NHL (shut up Montreal) taking on one of the top rising stars, Sidney Crosby. (Although it seems like Crosby has been in the league forever even though he was the first overall selection in 2005. Maybe I’m getting him confused with San Jose’s Joe Thornton. Say how did that trade work out Boston?)
The Stanley Cup playoffs have been pretty enjoyable so far. And it’s not fair to compare the NHL playoffs to the NBA playoffs because, well, they are two separate sports that you can enjoy on its own merits.
For instance, if you like a lot of clutch-and-grabbing, dump-and-chase, heart-pounding checking and nearly no scoring, well then, you can watch the Piston and the Celtics. But if you like skillful players who are at the top of their profession, you will watch the Stanley Cup finals.
WHO IS THE YOUR MOST HATED SPUR?
Does anybody know what the deal is with the bald spot on Manu Ginobili’s head? He’s a professional athlete. He should totally have that taken care of. Either take the razor to the head, or – seeing that he has the resources – he should at least visit the Bosley Clinic.
There are many annoying things about the Spurs. Tim Duncan’s belief that he has never committed a foul, EVER, being near the top of the list. Or even CSF great Bruce Bowen taking a few liberties with the players he is guarding. But nothing is as unsettling as seeing Ginobili’s bald spot out there on the court.
Does he know about it? Or do his Spurs teammates just kind of keep it from him? The guy should be studying film and that should have at least shamed him into doing something. He has the money to get it fixed (unlike some of us). Maybe Tony Parker has Eva Longoria tell him that she loves a good skin yarmulke.
But come on, he really needs to shave like the The Deal or No Deal Guy, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Andre Aggasi.
Congratulations to those of you who have not started your Memorial Day weekend already. Too bad the same cannot be said about the San Antonio Spurs who felt they were going to mail in the final 18 minutes of Game 1 of the NBA Western Conference Finals, holding a 20-point lead.
We are really stretching for material so hopefully this Memorial Day Weekend brings out the best in pool parties hosted by Vince Young, Matt Leinart or Jeff Reed. Come on guys, we are dying out here.
