We will go to a Game 7 in the Stanley Cup final after a very uninspiring performance from a team that could have clinched it all. The Canucks were once again horrible in Boston as the Bruins won 5-2 to force a one game showdown Wednesday night.
As Boston started to score, the Twitter world went wide with shots at both Roberto Luongo and the Canucks. This one might be my favourite.
Some other tweets that made me chuckle throughout the night
NBC thanks Luongo for highest rating of a prime-time comedy since Friends went off the air.
Less than 10 minutes into Game 6 and its 4-0. If this was baseball, position players would be pitching.
If you look up "worst case scenario" in the dictionary, the book will fly out of your hands and beat Roberto gloveside
Is that Troy Gamble stretching in the tunnel?
Have the riots started yet?
Is that Luongo or Lebron in net?
Tim Thomas and hockey fans across the nation are thinking "I would have those three".
There is a lot of Vancouver love in this final, but there's a lot of hate too, A LOT of it.
As sad as the Canucks were in Game 6, they can still win this thing and they can still do it on the shoulders of the much-maligned Luongo. Crazy!
I watched Mike Emrick and the NBC crew do the game. Please tell me that Craig Simpson did not say the Canucks should run Tim Thomas. How asinine a comment is that. I know a lot of people have been very critical of Jim Hughson and his play-calling in the final because he is a BC boy. I haven't really paid a lot of attention to that, but if Simpson did say something that stupid I guess you know what side of the fence CBC is sitting on. Shameful!
For those still on that Vancouver needs to win the Cup because they are from Canada routine, I give you this. Boston goals scored by Brad Marchand (Nova Scotia), Milan Lucic (Vancouver), Andrew Ference (Edmonton), Michael Ryder(Newfoundland) in that first period. That's Canadian enough if you ask me.
Sportsnet's ( and Sportscage Insider) Arash Madani is reporting Matt O'Donnell is now ready to come to the Riders and that the only snag is a signing bonus. This guy really should be sponsored by Advil. I can't wait for his first grilling by the local media.
I don't know if CFL pre=season football on TSN will work or not---especially the first games when a lot of guys playing are guys you have never heard of and guys you will never hear of again. I'll be interested to see the numbers.
What do you think the over/under is on horns being honked and middle fingers being given on Vic East between Park and the Ring Road is these days.
I've come to the conclusion that Facebook is a woman, because a man wouldn't ask "What's on your mind?"
