Curling is magic, whore.

In all honesty virtually everyone in Jamaica is poor except the tourists and politicians. That place is a dump, been there enough times to know I have no intention of ever going back!

I agree that the scenery is amazing. That said you do not want to be wandering around at night or leaving the tourist areas during the day do the crime rate. It is also rather annoying that seemingly every native is trying to sell me some drug or another or some stupid trinket. I even had some girl asked if I wanted my hair braided - I shave my head, 3 times before I finally gave her five bucks to leave me alone. I have been there at lest half a dozen times in the past decade and will take St. Maarten any day of the week!

Edit: yes, there were some very kind people living there, though most of them were working at restaurants or those shack waterfront bars.

Agreed. Ever been to Bermuda, St. Thomas, Antigua or Isle de Roaton -small island off the coast of Honduras? Amazing islands as well.

Gotcha, makes sense. I practically grew up on beaches and swimming in the ocean. One of the perks of my dad owning a travel agency (not running it though because he was a director and VP of security - former police officer before some drunk ran him down with a car - at my local hospital) that specialized in Caribbean trips!

Pittsburgh curling club man! They host the Tropicurl every year. Teams from all over Canada and the US come to play in it. They give you Olympic quality ice for the weekend!

Appreciate the kind words, luckily for me I was too young to know what happened except that my dad was in the hospital for months. The SOB who did it is out on parole now, would love to find him have some words....

That may be the saddest thing I have ever read.

I think that is why the playoffs are so special because once they start there is a small fire building in your heart that raising Lord Stanley's fabled cup is a possibility. I know I felt it it last night during the Pens game.

So know that I stand with you, here and now! Part of it is due to your impassioned words, but mostly because I fucking hate the Flyers...

Great post. I'm a 100% believer. Hope springs eternal. If it ends up in disappointment so be it.

From the early days at the capitol centre til now, this is our best team. I wish my Dad was here to enjoy this with us.

Go Caps!

Ah, so that's why there's no little blue clicky arrow in your sig. Because your quotes aren't real

Nice to know I get you so riled up, Crash

:thumbsup great post. You put into words what I have felt being a fan of the worst original six team and arguably the worst team in NHL history. I do think getting to the ECF 3 times in 4 years and making a run at the cup has softened the blow recently for fans of our club. The truth is though, winning the ECF two years ago was the happiest moment I have had as a sports fan. I can only imagine what it must be like to win the whole damn thing! Like you, I honestly worry that I will never experience one. One cup in 75 years doesn't make the odds great. We can only hope as fans.

As to your Caps. They have all the pieces in place. They have had the heartbreak of losing when they were the better team (yes folks, the Caps were a better team than my Rangers last year...just not over those seven games). Ovie has yet to push past that wall of success. All of that said, this is the best Caps team they have ever had. I would trade my team with yours anyday.

Barbs, if the Rangers don't win it this year(and let's be honest, they are not), I really hope the Caps do it for you!!

One thing I will say about the Caps team compared to others in the past is that they seem to be playing bigger and more physical. This could be wrong because I have only seen a few of their games, but that could pay off huge for them in the playoffs.
