You really need to watch more hockey But I don't think it's just hockey. Lots of team sports are like that.

yeah..i really dont watch hockey, cant stand it. I actually find it boring

the only 2 sports i really watch with any dedication are curling and tennis and when mesut ozil and thomas mueller are playing i'll watch soccer. But im obviously not so much a fan of soccer as i am of them

I had some friends, girlfriend over to watch Canada/US, Senators game and play some pool. It was pretty good, but really tired today.
Quite nail biting at the end of the Canada/US match even though the outcome won't affect the overall RR results.

How did you get introduced to curling and tennis? Seems like an odd combination kind of.

I know, it seemed like it was goin g to be a romp and then you go away for a bit in the third and suddenly its a close game. Wedgewood played well, I hope they continue with him and leave Visentin on the bench.

i have watched curling ever since i was little.My father and grand father are huge curling fans themsleves and introduced it to me. For a long time it was the only sport i was interested in at all and then i remember about 4, maybe 5 years back now i was flipping through the channels looking for anything to watch and saw andy murray playing wimbledon and i actually got interested because of him and then it grew from there

15-20 is the ceiling. half of those should be against really bad teams near the end of the season who arent giving it their all to win.

Last two games they played even a mediocre team would have won. People get all excited on blogs and message boards when they go up by 15 points as they tend to do against good teams (Dallas-Orlando) but its a foregone conclusion they will get significantly outscored down the stretch and their opponents know it, so they always play half hearted until the 4th quarter. When defence gets tight in the 4th quarter, they simply dont have any firepower.

Im not even sure they will get to 10 this year. But they have keep it close against some okay teams so we will see. Not very convinced they will do well.

Did you hear about Cousins demanding a trade from Sacramento?
