Stanley Cup Preview (Games 3-7) and Why Hockey Has the Best Postseason

  While much of the focus has been on the NBA Finals between the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat which is currently 3-2 Spurs with game 6 tomorrow, the Stanley Cup finals got underway last week and is already proving to be an amazing climax to a terrific Stanley Cup Playoffs. The series pits two Original Six teams against each other in the...

Prediction #7: No NHL Season 1

Prediction #7: No NHL Season

When I originally did my 2013 predictions, I set them up in order that the champion would be crowned. However, I thought it might make the most sense to get this prediction out the door early since any day the NHL could announce the cancellation of the season. Currently, the season is canceled up until January 14th, which is over half the season. I...

Doug’s 2013 Predictions

I’m not going to spend much time talking about why I am making these predictions in this post. I am just going to lay it all out there. I hope to come back to each prediction in a separate post. Some of these are not particularly bold considering where the sport is at in the season. Some of teams in some of these leagues,...

Euros: Day 5 – Let’s Do It All Over Again!

Have you ever wondered how the US would fair in Group A? ESPN did. I can’t say I’m convinced Stuart Holden is the answer, and I’m also not as pessimistic about the US. I was at the US/Brazil game and the US created plenty of chances. I’m not going to rehash my thoughts. Czech v. Greece (2-1) The Czechs are ranked 27th in the...

Congratulations to the LA Kings! 2

Congratulations to the LA Kings!

Technically speaking, they haven’t won the game yet, but much like on election night, I’m going to “call it”. It’s 6-1 with 3.5 minutes left. I’m not watching the game, but I still felt like congratulations deserved its own post, rather than being stuck with the Day 5 Euro coverage. Hopefully one of the other SportAZine authors will bring you some NHL coverage! Get...

Kings, James 0

Kings, James

I have a confession. I haven’t watched any of the NBA or NHL playoffs. I haven’t watched Sportscenter to keep up. However, I have caught some clips at restaurants when Wendy and I have gone out to eat and luckily, for the NBA, the stories and names are the same – LeBron James, Rajon Rondo, Kevin Durant, Tim Duncan. No need for research there....

Year in Review: Minus NCAA Baseball

So, I am done with school for the school year. It seems like a good time to do a year in review. It’s been a mixed year, with three major championships and the worst season in NBA history. The Hurricanes also flirted with the bottom of the league. As I was driving through NYC on Saturday, I got to listen to the nervous end...

Hockey and Soccer: Separated at Birth? – Part 1

Once again I’m not writing the article I planned to write, but with a day of giant upsets in college hoops, a canceled flight and an OT Gold Medal Game, you can’t really expect me to sit around researching for articles can you? 😉 Well, I did a little… The ice-cold reality is that hockey in the U.S. is a niche sport.  I’d disagree in...
