Update May 27, 2010
"First, I want to congratulate the Hitmen on a great season despite losing in overtime to the Brandon Wheat Kings in the semi-final of the Memorial Cup. It was such a thrill for me to plant my lips on the Ed Chynoweth trophy when they won the WHL championship. Much like back in 99' when some jerk playing for the Ottawa 67's sucker-shot Brad Stuart, who then couldn't play because of a severe concussion in the final of which we barely lost in overtime, I can't help but wonder how much different things might have gone if the jerk off Tri City American player hadn't slashed our best player Brandon Kozan across the ankle in the WHL final round, which very likely effected everything. To cheap-shot second-rate players like that, all I can say is what goes around comes around. Although we've come close in 15 years to winning the Memorial Cup twice, I know that one of these days, we'll finally drink from the silver cup. I also want to thank all the Hitmen players for letting me play a small part in their terrific season. As far as NHL hockey went, after the Calgary Flames missed the playoffs, I threw my support behind the Montreal Canadiens and the San Jose Sharks. As it turns out, the hockey gods weren't with me this season and now, with the Blackhawks facing the Flyers in the Stanley Cup final after being so wrong with my picks, I'm going on record to say the Chicago Blackhawks will be the next Stanley Cup champions.
