Jets, baby. I'm telling you, get in on this bandwagon!

Jake, sorry about your Pens. I'm thinking this is finally the year the Caps get by them.
Well I had the Predators eventually playing the Caps for the finals in the office pool, but, I am happy the Jets won. I am not going to win the pool anyway (thanks again Toronto).

Kudos to the Jets. They played better than Nashville and deserved to win the round. And they celebrate like reasonable humans.

Everybody stood on the sides of the road patiently waiting for the police to show up. The police came with their cars and lights on, stopped all traffic and then turned around and gave the fans the thumbs up and then everybody came rushing into the middle of the street. It's really something to see.

I'm pretty invested in the intrigue of an expansion team going all the way, but I gotta admit I'm feeling for y'all. It would be just as much fun watching the Jets move forward.

I guess you're not supposed to cheer fighting, but that was badass.

Go Caps.

I'm predicting the Capitals win in seven.

What do y'all think?

We came to Houston in the early 70's when the Aeros and Gordie and his sons were here and that hooked me. In the 90's hockey became more accessible by way of cable and satellite TV and I was able to keep up better. Then a few years ago my grandson started playing and it lit the fire even hotter.

Good for Ovie, I guess. I didn't watch one game of the final. Heart is too tender still.

Go Jets go!

I rooted for the Caps because of Ovie and Oshie. Ovechkin's story is cool, but when I saw Oshie's after game interview and they asked him about his father I got a wicked case of the feels.
