I've gotta say that this years playoffs will in one way be one of the best for me in a long time.
I'm not pulling for any team so I won't have to worry about how the AVs are stacking up at all. I have no other favorite teams so I'm just going to be able to kick back and enjoy the whole spectacular thing like never before. I'll probably be surfing between different games and series trying to follow a little of all of them.
Of course I'll be pulling for some individual players...Drury, Foppa, Shanny (forgive me fellow board-members but I've always liked that guy), Karyia (that hit he took from Stevens scared the hell out of me and the way he came back and tried to check Scott later made me a fan of his forever), and being in Alaska how can I not pull a little bit for Gomez...
It's gonna be fun...a shame the AVs aren't there but it's still going to be fun to watch.
