Crazy Sports Weekend: Part 2

November 12, 2015

Following the Hockey Hall of Fame, (see recap part 1 for more,) Nik and I headed to Bellwoods Brewery for a few drinks and lunch at BQM – Beer and Quality Meats. (I had a delicious burger and side of Poutine.) [MORE: Crazy Sports Weekend Part 1; World Series Game 3: Mets 9, Royals 3; My Water […]

Crazy Sports Weekend: Part 1

November 10, 2015

Several months ago, long before the Mets playoff run began, Nik and I had plans for a weekend in Toronto, Canada. He was going to be there for work and I’d fly up after and we’d stay the weekend to visit the Hockey Hall of Fame and see the Penguins/Maple Leafs game. Then the Mets playoffs […]

The Sports Room

February 11, 2012

Nik and I recently moved into a new condo and wasted no time making on of the bedrooms a sports room. The room was already painted red when we moved in and since most of our frames and shelves were a dark color, we decided to leave the paint color alone. (Note: click on any […]

How the Blackhawks Beat the Rangers

December 10, 2009

The game was in overtime and Dustin Byfuglien (aka Big Buff) steps on the ice and more or less gets on a breakaway: Takes a shot: And it goes in and King Henrik is beat! It really was a great game. The Hawks got off 35 or so shots and scored their only regulation goal […]

Back to Baseball

June 4, 2008

Well, the Penguins lost in game 6 to the Red Wings. They put up a good fight. Detroit got lucky with two goals that just got past Fleury. It’s too bad the Penguins can really only put the pressure on when they have a man advantage. Now they have to take a quick break, re-sign […]

It's a Series Now, Kids.

June 2, 2008

While the Mets are figuring out if they are for real or not, it’s still hockey time here at ChicagoMetsFan.com… The Penguins finally won in Detroit (4-3, 3 OT), forcing a game six back in Pittsburgh. Who is the man: Marc-Andre Fleury and his 55 saves or Maxime Talbot and his game tying goal with […]

Penguins/Red Wings – Stanley Cup Game 2

May 27, 2008

Well much like game 1, the Penguins lost. However, there were a few highlights: Found a great women’s bathroom that bright, clean and had many stalls; Our seat location rocked; I got a picture with Barry Melrose and Steve Levy; and I think we just about cleaned out Detroit of their Magic Hat stock. Enjoy […]

A Reminder to the NY Rangers

April 30, 2008

Dear boys, So you are down three games to none to the Penguins. The heat is on…even more so than it was before game three began. I ask you to keep in mind how the 2004 Red Sox were down three games to none against the Yankees in the 2004 playoffs and went on to win four […]

Who Doesn't Love Fighting in Hockey?

April 27, 2008

We’re in the midst of the Stanley Cup Playoffs involving two teams with a heated past. (The Colorado Avalanche and the Detroit Red Wings, duh). While I don’t root for either of these teams, it is a good excuse to highlight some fights from their storied rivalry. I just love it!

Hockey, bitches!

April 18, 2008
Tags: ,

Only a few people will understand this posts’ title…but tonight, my Rangers stomped the Devils and rolled into the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  This is sweet for several reasons: the Rangers desperately need to go far in the playoffs so the critics will shut up; I hate the Devils; and Martin Brodeur […]
