Biggest Blackhawks Game Since 1971
Today is the day we find out if the Chicago Blackhawks have what it takes to win the Stanley Cup. The best of seven series is now down to the best of three with the Hawks having home ice advantage. However, the Philadelphia Flyers have won the last two and have momentum on their side. The entire series has been entertaining hockey and tonight should be no different. If you have never watched an NHL game before, tune in to NBC tonight. You will understand why playoff hockey is probably the most exciting sporting even to view.

I stick to my guns as a long suffering fan and predict the Hawks will win the crucial game tonight and then end the series in Philadelphia. Wishful thinking? Maybe, but that is why I am a fan, right?

An Evening at the Cell

Many thanks to fellow poker blogger genomeboy, who was in Chicago for a professional conference and treated this lowly White Sox fan and his son to a baseball game at US Cellular Field last night. genomeboy and I have discussed family and child rearing topics in the past -- always fun topics, right? Unfortunately, the Sox continued their losing ways and lost -- again -- to the Cleveland Indians. However, my son, who has not been at a baseball game since he was an infant, surprisingly wanted to go to try out a new experience -- and enjoyed it. It actually was a pretty boring game, but games are always good when the company is good, right?

Thanks again, Jason. It was great meeting you in person after sharing many e-mails with you. Let's keep in touch as we struggle to help our kids get through this wacky world.

All Good Things Must End

This afternoon is the final event of the Battle of the Blogger Tournaments 5: the Blogger Battle Royale. Up for grabs: a $2000 WSOP bracelet package for the winner and and additional $2000 to be split among the rest of the top ten. Schweet! Once again, a huge thanks to Full Tilt Poker and AlCantHang for these great tournaments. Please Al -- a BBT6 somewhere down the road?
I really liked the way BBT5 was set up: a decent amount of tournaments in a relatively short span. BBT4, as good as it was, took an enormous commitment of time. Also, BBT5 was important in getting some of the bloggers participating in blogger events again. The weekly Mookie was getting boring with just the usual suspects and small fields.

Who will win the final event today? I will be trying. It should be a blast.

Light, you don't sound confident re:hawks. You sound like I FEEL when the sox are playing the yankees.

Good luck in the Battle Royale today Sweetie.

Don't think so unkless Hawks play like they did the last 10 min of the last game. Can they keep up that style for 60? Was a good series no matter who wins (but better if it's the Flyboys).

See you later at the Blogger Royale

Great to finally meet you. Yes, boring game, but great conversation. And I don't know if I'd call myself a poker blogger, considering I never blog besides twitter, but....
