Stanley Cup playoffs

I warned you way back at the beginning that I would throw other topics in at random, and here is an example. Last night the Edmonton Oilers played the San Jose Sharks in Edmonton. The Sharks led the series 2-0. In the second period Gary Smyth caught his teammate Chris Pronger's 90 mph clearing pass right in the pie hole, losing six teeth and about a pint of blood. An injury like this would knock a baseball or basketball weenie out for the rest of this season and most of next. But this is hockey. Smyth was back on the ice with his NEXT SHIFT. He played the rest of a triple-overtime game and fed Shawn Horcoff the assist for the game-winning goal. Today, Smyth is undergoing 6 hours of surgery to put his face back together.

All you NBA and MLB wussies take note: THAT'S the way a professional does it.

I hereby create the Gary Smyth Award, for displays of weapons-grade cajones.
