Stanley Cup Finals

Did anyone out there watch the Stanley Cup finals on NBC last night?

The final game in the championship series was the lowest rated prime time show EVER on NBC!

HH read to me from the sports page this morning that the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim took the cup.

A California hockey team....that must be especially galling to you, Andy.

mudbug.

if hockey disappered from the planet, I wouldn't even notice for quite a while. I focus on baseball and football.

I listen to sports radio, and they were lamenting the lack of interest so I thought I'd ask. We have some serious hockey fanatics here, including my BIL, and they are all crying about the elimination of fighting from hockey, something I never understood.

Growing up we lived hockey. My bother made it all the way to the NHL for a while. That league is so screwed up it has no hope. I knew it was on, but didn't bother watching.

Up until they cancelled the season and playoffs in the lockout, I had seen every Stanley Cup handed out dating back to about 1985. Now I really don't much care about it.

ronjohn, we both bleed hockey blood. alas, i too did not bother to watch the cup being raised this year.
my cup addiction go back to '74-'75.
back then, my older brother used to take old couch cushions and a bunch of my dad's old belts and "suit me up" to play goalie so he could practice his shot. our goal was a coupla garbage cans stacked up, a 2x4 for the crossbar, and the net an old beadspread. sometimes, they weren't that old...
i was really excited the christmas he bought me a jacques plante style mylec mask and my very own stick.
(i got him back years later when i broke my goalie stick and the only one i could find in the house was his eddie giacomin signed stick, so i used it and got it well marked up... )

getting back to depressing times: i noticed a tremendous lack of the normal advertising about the finals this year. very few promos on nbc, espn, and versus about when the games were on. it's like they gave up.
