Creepy coincidence. Tho the picture on the wikipedia page you linked is completley ridiculous hahahahahaha
There are better (read: more ridiculous) ones in the Google image search, which is awesome. It's one of the more absurd tales of American lore.



I'm not rooting against Nashville by any means, and I'd love to see them make the finals, but I was delighted when Whitney scored the OT winner. I had more or less written off Phoenix after the third period they had.

I'm def cheering for Nashville all the way, but really I'll be cool with any of the final four left in the west.

PS - this one is pretty epic

If there's anything more WTF than the Jersey Devil, I don't know what it is.

25 minutes in and there have been 11 SOG's total? If the Rangers and Blues make the finals they are going to make the nets soccer goal sized after watching 7 straight 1-0 games.

It's like the Rangers have 5 goalies playing in front of Lundquist. I've never seen anything quite like it.

I don't have anything against St. Louis, but I feel myself pulling for the Kings in this series.

Maybe it's our summer acquisition of Penner that's drawing me.

Why can't we have Dustin Brown on our team?

I want LA to win, simply because I don't believe the Conn Smythe can be handed to a coach, and should the Blues win it all, Hitch is the reason why.

I went into the playoffs being very neutral about the Kings, but that's because I'd rarely watched them this season.


As the games progress, I'm finding myself liking them (especially Quick and Brown) more and more every day.

This will probably end up being my favorite series in round 2, and I'd be happy with either team advancing (after 7 games, hopefully).

I really only care about the LA-STL and NJ-PHI series. I'll watch the other series whenever possible, but the two aforementioned series are the only ones I actively plan to watch.

I'm more or less focused on the EC, and how that shakes out. It's harder than I expected to generate excitement for Nashville in this round, possibly because of the Ray Whitney tent revival he's got going on out in Phoenix. But St Louis/LA is starting to feel like it might take some great turns before its over.

Who knows. My luck the Flyers will disappear and lose to the overwhelmingly boring Debs, who will gridlock with the Rangers to produce a snoozer of epic, 1-0, double OT, 7 games magnitude.

Cue the Rangers winning the Cup, then.

Kings-Blues
Flyers-Devils
Predators-Coyotes
Rangers-Capitals


That's how I would order my interest as of now.

Grabbing either one would be amazing. Grabbing both would be a thing of legends.

Briere's so money in the playoffs, only he can score twice in playoff OT.
