Forgive me Father Blog, for I have sinned.  It has been 20  days since my last blog.

Ok, I feel better now.

Three cheers for our beloved Portland Winterhawks!!  Although they lost a tough Game 7 to Edmonton in the WHL finals, they had a great season and should be very proud!  It was a tough way to end the year, and for some players, their hockey careers, but they have nothing to hang their heads about.

I’m still watching the NHL playoffs with great fervor!  I’d like to see the NY Rangers and LA Kings face off in the Stanley Cup Finals, they are both tough, aggressive teams.  I don’t think anyone thought the 8th-seeded Kings would have made it this far!  They’ve only lost 1 game so far in the first three rounds, and have sent the Phoenix Coyotes to the brink of elimination.  They are currently playing as I write this, in Game 4 from the Staples Center in LA.

Speaking of the Staples Center, they’ve certainly had a busy few days!  Thursday night the Kings hosted Game 3 of the NHL playoffs, then the Lakers and Thunder played their NBA playoff game Saturday, followed by the Clippers / Spurs playoff game Saturday night, followed by the Kings game today.  Whew!  I’m tired just thinking about the crew that has to change the basketball courts and change back and forth from the ice.

Here’s a better pic of the mosaic tile table I talked about earlier:

That’s right….. a water ski table!!
