Disgusted by CBC right now.... this is so offensive to female hockey fans.

Why why why!!!! do some women insist that we can't be "real women" and enjoy sports just the way they are presented. UGH!!!

Because they think everyone thinks like they do. I admit that, when I've gone to Superbowl parties, I spend more time socializing than watching the game. And I admit that I think watching baseball is painful. But Hockey! Love it!!!!! I love my Devils! Sports are like anything else, I enjoy some of them, others I don't. But I don't need "sports for dummies" from those two bloggers.

Wait, did they just write in Nope across the rink and Yep across the basketball court in that picture? It's good idea either way. :lol:

It's Memorial Cup time and that means it's time for my annual posting about this...

CHL.ca ~ Cataractes’ Commemorative Jersey Auction (http://www.chl.ca/article/cataractes-commemorative-jersey-auction)

During the Opening Game of the Tournament, the home team always wears the Regimental jersey of the Regiment or Base of the Host City/Area for only that game. Those jerseys are then put up for an online auction for a very special cause.


Proceeds from the auction will go towards the Dominion Command Poppy Trust Fund. Poppy funds are spent to support veterans and their families, buy hospital equipment, support cadet groups, and provide student bursaries. The MasterCard Memorial Cup Theme Jersey Program was created in 2008 and have cumulatively generated over $100,000 for the fund.

The Memorial Cup was donated in 1919 by the Ontario Hockey Association as a memorial to those young men and women who had given their lives in the defence of Canada during World War I. The 2012 edition of the tournament in Shawinigan marks the 94th time this prestigious trophy will be presented.

The CHL also sends one to Don Cherry and Ron McLean to sign and they in turn also send along a Coaches Corner package of items to go along w/it for the auction.

Say what you will or how you feel about Don Cherry, but one thing that can't be denied is this. He will do just about anything he can for our Vets and current Servicemen and women of the Cdn Armed Forces. Regardless of personal feelings, you've got to admire him for that.

I haven't been able to find the actual Jersey auction website, otherwise I'd share the link to it here too. I hope, as I do every year, they raise a boat load of money. W/the cuts to Veterans Affairs in the last Federal Budget, our Vets need all of the help they can get.

Devils vs "Sacramento" Kings for the cup! So glad Henrique got the winning goal & Elias is finally playing well again. Now, to stop blow blowing multiple-goal leads...

Kings fans find it ironic that in facing the Devils, they will be facing two players who played on the Kings in 2011, Ponikorovski and Harrold. Ironic in that both were ran out of town on a rail for incredibly poor play, yet they are back. :)

Here's to a great series against the Devils, but with the Kings pulling it out in the end. :)
I mean, the Devils had won 3 cups, couldn't the Kings have one in 45 years??? PLEEEZ?

Yes here's to a great Stanley Cup! But (sorry), with the Devils for the win! I'd love to see 40 year old Marty get one last championship! After last night, he proved he's the best, ever!

Pulling for the Devils only because of Marty.

Pulling for the Devils only because of Marty.

I'm torn. The overall team I prefer is the Kings... but I adore Marty.

Did ANYONE guess the teams in the final would be L.A. and/or N.J.? I think my guess long ago was San Jose vs. Philadelphia. (Well, not too far off, geographically :shuffle: .)

Does this mean Paulina Gretzky will become even more famous for her online photos? :eek: :wall: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2012/05/paulina-gretzky-twitters-racy-photos-again/
