Stanley Cup playoff picks – Fanata's view

June 14th, 2009 by Fantana Leave a reply »

 

The Stanley Cup Playoffs came to a thrilling finish on Friday night and everyone not named Kris Draper were happy to see Sidney Crosby (a.k.a Sid the Squid) and the Pittsburgh Penguins lift their 3rd Stanley Cup in franchise history.   
Pittsburgh’s win also means that the Stay Classy team won’t need to start blogging about fishing or water polo.  What a relief! 
Last night’s game also brought Stay Classy’s playoff pool to end.  This blog was initially going to be about how great I am, but then I realized that Burgundy got lucky and tied me.  Damn you, Ron Burgundy!  Baxter and Mantooth gave a solid fight as well, so nice work boys.  Tambland… you lost pretty badly, so don’t flip out and kill anybody or anything like that… Anyway here are the final results:

Reporter Correct Picks Incorrect Picks Worst Prediction
Burgundy 10 5 Columbus over Detroit, round 1
Fantana 10 5 Washington over Pittsburgh, round 2
Mantooth 9 6 Chicago over Detroit, round 3
Tambland 6 9 Columbus over Detroit, round 1
Baxter 9 6 Chicago over Detroit, round 3

 

Stay classy were also completely wrong on a few series.  We all got shocked by the invisible San Jose Sharks in the first round, and nobody saw Carolina’s 2nd round upset over Boston coming. 

 

It’s been a fun season and with all games over and done with until October, we’ll our turn our attention to the NHL Entry Draft, the UFA frenzy in July and more crazy trade rumours like the Pronger for Johnson one that popped up this week. 

On a related note, I’m looking for a new summer hobby… an afternoon delight, if you will.  So far, lawn bowling is in the lead, with T-ball in close pursuit.  Let me know if you have any better ideas.
