NHL.com - The Stanley Cup
Congrats to Chris Chelios for appearing in his 22nd playoff season. He breaks the record of 21 seasons formerly held by Ray Borque. Chelios has missed only ONE playoff season in his career. (Kinda like Nick Libett). At 45 years of age, he is the second oldest player to ever play in a playoff game. The oldest guy was 52 years old and has a huge statue in fromt of his home arena.........
Did I ever tell you guys about my Chellios story?
No you didn't TaS, but please do.
So I'm working as a cart boy at a golf course outside of Ann Arbor at the course that used to host the annual Jim Harbaugh celebrity golf invitational (maybe 1994 or so). All these semi-celeb/athletes start showing up and I'm one of the guys who is putting their golf bags on carts and making sure they know which hole they are going to, etc. (shotgun start).
Chelios gets dropped off with no golf clubs and two extremely hot women. He asks for a golf cart and then he drives off with the babes to a heavily wooded, secluded, part of the course that was under construction for a new hole they were building. They showed up randomly later after an hour or so, but they spent the rest of the day just sort of cruising around and getting bombed.
After the tournament was winding down and the golfers were dumping their carts back at the clubhouse, Chelios brought his cart back too, and ordered me to "call a limo" for him. I went into the clubhouse and asked the assistant pro to order a limo for Mr. Chelios, and didn't really think much of it after that.
About 45 minutes later, I get approached by Chelios, who was tracking me down to blame me for failing to get the G__ D___ limo for him and his "nieces." He was a real a-whole and as drunk as it gets. I just basically spent the rest of my time there trying to avoid him so that I wouldn't get my ass kicked in from of a bunch of b-list celebs.
Shortly afterward, Jim Harbaugh (also drunk out of his mind) decided to call everyone's attention and urinated all over the flowers by the first tee. It got a little ugly and the course refused to host the tournament going forward.
Never liked Chelios. He always looked and acted like a D___ head to me.
I love Chellie. His flaws are what makes him great. Just like Larry Brown.
So I don't know how close folks are following this, but...
Vancouver beat Dallas in Game 1 but it took 4 OTs.
San Jose upset Nashville at home. San Jose is a popular choice to emerge from the West, but Jonathan CheeChoo got hurt and he's their big goal scoring threat.
Watched the Devils close out the Lightning in Game 1 last night. The Devils are a built for the playoffs team. Have been for over a decade.
Pittsburgh lost it's opener but there was a controversial reversal on a goal by Sidney Crosby. Those kids will be great next year. They are the most talented young team in the NHL. Just need some veteran defensemen and they will be a force.
His hockey ability helps too.
You should've said ,"Give me a bigger tip next time biatch!"
Congratulations to the Ducks. They have a good team and deserved to win. The Wings were oh-so-close.
I didn't really care who won that series. I like the Quackers, but you gotta be excited for Canada when a Canadian team (Ottawa) gets in.
I am a bit bummed out. First of all, this should've been Wings if not for the collapse in games 5 and 6. And secondly, I'd much rather see Sens win. And finally, I HATE PRONGER!!!
But Pronger was crushed into the boards during the last game. The hit gave him a separated shoulder.
I'm glad Prongs got his cup. Seeing him suffer in St. Louis for 5 years was killing me!
Now go away before we hit you in the chest with another puck!
