It started sometime after soccer on Sunday afternoon. My son Max and I decided that as all the “expert prognosticators” prepared their predictions (which are all but a crapshoot) we would conduct a unique “Science Experiment” to predict the actual playoff outcome. The results were groundbreaking. I expect Nobel prize consideration.
“Little Stick Hockey.” The bane of my wife and his sister’s existence. Holes in the walls, cuts on the face, smashed fingers, sore knees, arguing over questionable goals. Even dropped gloves, penalties, the whole 9 yards. Lots of things that are similar, in fact, to the NHL.
So it went. Max vs. Me. We would wear the jerseys of each team if we had them. We have the Apple ap (yes there is one) that sounded the home teams horn and goal light. Off we went. Each game up to 10 would decide the winner of the series.
Admittedly we fudged the Blackhawks series as we played before Dallas had finished because bedtime was quickly approaching. Dallas won. So Chicago wins round one.
Round 1 Winners: Max (Caps, Flyers, Sabers, Blackhawks, Sharks, Coyotes) Dad (Ducks, Pittsburgh)
Round 2 Winners: Max (Flyers, Sharks, Ducks) Dad (Caps)
Round 3 Winners: Max (Ducks) Dad (Capitals)
Cup Winner: Max WASHINGTON CAPITALS-Winner of the 2010-11 Stanley Cup
NOTE: We picked teams out of hat each round. Will this science hold up to the experts? Attached is a link to the infamous blog “Puck Daddy” and his staff predictions. They all seem to be on same page and are sniffing some Boston Glue IMO. One thing I know for certain, is the Canucks will not win the cup. That I guarantee.
Also, dangeroushockey.com will burn his entire hockey jersey collection if any of the PD crew are 100% on their “expert” predictions.
