The Jets were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs yesterday and it’s not the problem by itself. It’s not the end of the world that they couldn’t make it past the first round. The problem that the “do-or-die” game, game 6, was a demonstration of one-sided hockey. St Louis wanted to win and did everything to get the necessary result. Winnipeg… well, after the first two periods they had just 6 shots on goal. So, first the Knights, then the Jets. Now I don’t have any preferences and can just enjoy some good hockey =)

In general, right now I have a chance to be 100% on my playoff predictions. My choices were — Flames, Sharks, Stars, Jets and Lightning, Bruins, Capitals and Penguins. 4 of these teams have already finished they 2018-19 season and 2 are trailing 2-3 in their series. Remind me to never ever bet on sports results =)

Some coaches know what an inspirational speech should be about. Maybe one day it’ll be used in the next “Miracle” =)

Sign me in for 4 games (hehe) of such hockey in playoffs! Was a nervous, close but exciting match, and it’s only minus was that the game was broadcast on TV, which meant a commercial break every 5-6 minutes. Knights showed that they are really ready to win this year. Bouchard with 3 assist and a solid play — much better than what he was doing on Tuesday against the Storm.

One sector behind the goal was suspiciously empty — when I was buying a ticket almost everything had already been occupied. Mystery.

Chargers — Colts; Saints — Cowboys. Superbowl: Chargers — Cowboys. The winner — Chargers.

I finished at an honourable 8th place (out of 10) in our fantasy football league, so, to be honest, I wouldn’t trust my own predictions but we’ll see.

P.S. Learned today that double contractions in English is a legit thing. I couldn’t’ve thought.

Manziel’s first touchdown in the CFL — a beautiful play.

And another video, something that’s a complete opposite to the word “beautiful”. Hopefully, Wilson will get at least 15 games.

Upd.: okay, Wilson got 20 games. As Maciej said — he had it coming.

And it’s time for sports news. Johnny Manziel’s CFL debut was triumphant indeed. Four interceptions in the first half! And his first ever pass in an official CFL match was intercepted.

On a bright note — the minor league hockey team that was founded in Newfoundland unveiled their logo recently — and it’s awesome!
