The Chicago Blackhawks, lead by manager Joel Quenneville, completed an impressive season by defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday! Whispers of a dynasty are being uttered in the hockey world as the Blackhawks won two of the past four Stanley Cups, splitting the honors with the Los Angeles Kings (2012 Kings, Blackhawks 2013, Kings 2014, Blackhawks 2015).

I would say that would warrant being called a dynasty. While they are not quite the 90’s Bulls, the city of Chicago certainly is in a frenzy over their beloved Blackhawks.

Over the course of his career Gary Glitter has been connected to numerous pedophile charges against under aged boys and girls in several different countries.
Last night the NBA’s wet dream happened. There was a finals showdown between the two biggest TV markets in America, Los Angeles and New York. One of those teams even happened to be going a second straight title opening up conversations for words like “dynasty”.
Even though the team seeking dynastic considerations was up 3-0 in the best of 7 series the game still managed to be incredibly entertaining, going all the way to double OT to decide a victor. This is not only the NBA’s version of a JIM AND NADIA, it’s every professional sports league’s ideal scenario. Unfortunately this happened in the NHL and nobody south of Lake Minnetonka actually gave a damn. Continue reading If a Tree Falls in The Stanley Cup Playoffs…
