5/24/13 - Spring Sports
In the NHL conference semi-finals the Penguins and Bruins in the East look to wrap up their seriesí and advance to the East finals. Both have looked very good and should advance. In the West the Detroit Red Wings are giving a surprising thrashing to the mighty Blackhawks, and are just a game away from moving on to the West Finals. Itís hard to believe the team that pretty handily had the best regular season record, and then knocked our Wild out of the first round are on the brink of elimination. And the LA Kings are up 3-2 over San Jose as they try to get back to the West Finals. Iíll pick the Penguins to win the Cup this year, and take on either Detroit or L.A. in what looks to be a tough match-up in the West for a berth in the Stanley Cup finals. The playoff games have been great and I look forward to the Wild making a strong run next year as the team grows in confidence and experience.
Speaking of the Twins, they are mired in a 9 game losing streak!! Damn, and I donít think itís going to get much better. They hung around .500 for about as long as the makeshift pitching staff was going to hold up. Oh well, as Iíve said before Target Field is still one of the best places to spend a summer afternoon or evening and did I mention the food??? Itís the best of all stadium venues Iíve ever been to. So donít forget to check out the list of all the great concessions. I feel like Iíve plugged the food enough I should be a part-owner in a food kiosk there. But you have to have something to look forward to when your team threatens to lose near 100 games in a season again.
And finally, the Vikings made another big splash with the unveiling of what will be the first clear glass roofed venue in all of major sports. The drawings sure do look great and it will be fun to watch construction get under way following the upcoming and final season in the Dome. Less than 2 months to training camp!
