If you aren’t watching the war, you should be watching ice hockey. And if you are watching ice hockey, you should be watching the COLORADO AVALANCHE. The Avs finshed the regular season by beating St. Louis, and when Vancouver lost to Los Angeles, Colorado WON THEIR NINTH CONSECUTIVE DIVISION TITLE. In case you’re wondering, the record is 8 consecutive titles. Until now.

Many of my loyal readers are fans of the Detroit Red Wings, and I’ve got to say that I hope we meet again in the playoffs. For those of you who don’t follow the Avs-Wings rivalry, all I can tell you is that the average Wings fan has a level of sophistication that, well, doesn’t really qualify as a level of sophistication. The gloves are off.
