The sound you hear is a grown man crying.
Call Harry Sinden for tee times.
Tough break. I don’t like watching the Wings-Avs series anyway, though.
I’d be more upset if the Pioneers won the championship this year.
That should say “if the Pioneers hadn’t won the championship”
Even if the Avs could pull it off, they would be in no shape to face either the Wings or the Flames. Karma for firing Bob Hartley, he didn’t deserve it.
Of course, the headline “Maybe Next Year” assumes there’ll BE a next year in the NHL…what with the CBA and the way both the league and the NHLPA have “dug in” their positions and all, that’s looking doubtful at this point.
Sigh…and the Mammoth got knocked out of the playoffs by Calgary, too.
Mammoth Schmammoth, we’ve only lost two. There’s alot of hockey left in the old beans. Wings in Six!
I just TOTALLY lost all respect, Stephen. ALL respect. The Avalanche? The only thing worse would be a Flyers fan.
Glendon: The Mammoth are Colorado’s NLL (lacrosse) team, ex-Washington Power. I was hoping they’d win the Champions Cup this year…instead, the Calgary Roughnecks knocked them out and will challenge Buffalo for the championship.
Do the Crush still have a chance at this point? (I’m assuming the Nuggets don’t.) Or should I just settle down for the summer and prepare to have the Rockies dash our hopes again?
The Crush are 8-4 (3rd/4th seed??) with four regular season games to go. I doubt they’ll go far in the playoffs, but the turnaround from last year’s pathetic 2-14 is nice… kinda like the Nuggets.
Chris, could you possibly live in Colorado, and not be an Avalanche fan?
To the inevitable bandwagon accusation, sure, the Avs have been good and it’s easy to root for a winner. Still, I’d put Colorado’s record of supporting teams against anyone else’s with pretty good confidence. I’m talking losing seasons and winning. Fans here are more loyal than most.
Besides, we were practically owed an easy winner after all the crap we went through. (Though we may have cut in front of Cleveland a couple times. Sorry about that Cleveland.)
Nuggets are a good example. They were damn near the worst team ever and still sold more tickets per game than some teams. That’s the worst team. Ever. In history. And they still sold more tickets per game last year than the New Jersey Nets. The Denver area has a little over two million. I think God lost count how many people are crammed into the New Jersey/New York area.
And they can’t get twenty thousand? Makes us look pretty good.
I do agree though, Ph**k the Flyers.
