  1. Pshhh, this implies the Sharks have some kind of glory day and past Championship moments. I think Canucks of baseball would be more apt.

  5. Minnesota Buffalo New England Philadelphia Kansas City Dallas Atlanta Green Bay Tampa Bay Carolina Seattle Houston San Fran LA Rams Freaking mussed Thursday which sucks. Oh well, had to literally pull into a rest stop to get my picks in time. Whew!
  6. There's too many variations being brought to the table here. As a fellow Bucs fans, I too am like Bucfan and have unnecessarily heated opinions about where my teams visual aesthetic has gone. When I last when down to Tampa and drove by The New Sombrero, I just had to look at that big flag with its modern elements and just sigh. Like many have said, it's too clean, too contemporary and too gosh darn big on the helmet. The 97-13 helmets were perfect fine. That flag would look just as good now as it would 50 or 100 years from now. It has a timeless quality to it. I consider it akin to the Chicago Bulls. It's 50 years old and looks just as good, having fluidity in a multitude of uses. These new helmets and jerseys remind me of the current Seahawks aesthetic, which to throw out a hot take, looks like hot garbage and I don't think it'll age well after a few decades. To counter my pirate brother though, the most recent mockup by the Tampa podcaster is pretty good. The orange sleeve touch is minor which works and the number font is more personalized and actually fits a team with a pirate team name and logo. Of course I'd change the flag and put pewter pants on their home jerseys, but that's a set that I think would be a huge step forward.
  7. Shoot, good call. Totally got my D cities confused.

  10. It would be unusual for sure, considering we've grown up in a time when duos are common and I get the rationale for it. But if you have someone who understands pacing, good articulation and sometimes lets moments speak for themselves, I could see listening to a solo broadcaster. Locally, I'd be okay with Benetti or Hughes going the distance.
  11. I don't really get the need for new folks to join in and take a leg of a broadcast. If you're primary job description is to talk for a three hour period of time, I think it's more of a sign you're not as good at your job as you should be if you need to take a reprieve. Unless it's some historic broadcaster's last season and they're testing out replacements to see who has chemistry.
  12. Have you considered rooting for one of the other California teams? Both of them have championship DVDs you can by so you don't have to worry about them being perpetual losers!
  13. In time I'm sure I will thaw and root for the Blues to take the series, but after all the magic of the Vegas series and the decent start in this series as well, I just wanted the storybook ending to happen. Jumbo getting a Cup at TD Garden would've been a great send-off.
  14. I wanted to think this game was going to be different and yet when the leading team is the one surging in the second period, I'm pretty much done for today. I'm sure the Blues will wrap this up Tuesday. Goddamn Sharks got me to believe again. I hate it when that happens.
