    3:00am I hear someone's phone ringing right outside my back door. I open it and there is a passed out guy on my porch wearing a caps jersey. I poked him with a stick a few times, and he wasn't waking up so I had to call the EMTs. The EMTs arrived and got him up and talking... he thought my house was his house... but he lived about 50 miles away from where he thought he was. Rookies.

    I really wanted to put my Pens jersey on him, but then I didn't want to lose my Pens jersey.

    Great to see a team that never won a title before bring it home after a long wait.

    Congrats to the Caps for a spectacular run! They were dead a few times and really turned it on.

    Disappointed in the showing that Vegas had during the Finals. It was night and day from the rest of their season/playoffs. Unreal season for them, but you gotta think they are really disappointed. Especially after winning Game 1.

    LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

    Caps finally peaked at the right time and Ovi was on fire. Holtby too. What a f’ing performance. Blanked TB in last two games then beat Vegas in 5.

    I was downtown for the whole thing. Needless to say I showed up to work 3 hours late looking like a truck had just run me over. My boss just laughed and gave me a high five.

    You gotta respect this man’s alcohol consumption if nothing else.

    Tampa has lost in game 6 or 7 to the cup champs 3 of 4 years. That is as close as you get and not win.
    They have 2 game seven losses in the East final in 3 seasons...Both times the East winner was going to win the cup in all likelihood.

    Bolts head into the off season as ESPN's pick to hoist the cup in 2019.

    The most unfortunate thing about all this is that Kornheiser was right. :emoji_astonished:

    I'm still sad we couldn't close it out. Expecting to see some roster changes after the assistant coaches were sent packing. Really hoping we get some guys who can hit and some more speed guys to help carry the load.
