Detroit Red Wings Win Stanley Cup
Yup. I watched most of the final game, verrry exciting it was, too.
"General manager Ken Holland had heard often his team was too European, too soft and that his Detroit Red Wings couldn't win with a European captain. All of those assertions were disproved Wednesday when Swedish defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom became the first European NHL captain to lead his team to a Stanley Cup championship."
Why do I like hockey? It is like chess on ice, with peculiar rules, and odd accents, and lots of Viking-like men rushing hither and yon on the slippery ice. It is fast. I don't like the whomping each other with bent sticks, or the smacking around, but I like the adrenalin. Go figure. Literature and hockey, a fine combination.
