During the regular season, hockey fans unite around their favorite team. During the post season, we cheer or jeer for teams for any number of reasons - big or small. 

For the cheering: They are playing the Wings. Boston really is quite lovely in the fall. Their goalie looks like a drunk hobo with a name like a ninja apprentice.

For the jeering: They are the Wings. Their airport sucks, where is concourse F? Wow, my sister grows a better playoff beard than that goalie.

Blues News:

  • And the hatred continues. A Capitals blog writes the Penguins Eulogy. [Puck Daddy]
