Don't doubt my hockey allegiance for a second, but I was damn pleased to see the Pittsburgh Penguins raise the greatest, and most difficult to earn, chalice in all of professional sports. Maxime Talbot sniped two pretty goals to put the Pens over the Wings 2-1 in Game 7 in Detroit. A toast to the Red Wings for a great series and a great season. And big props to Evgeni Malkin for winning a most deserved Conn Smythe. It's been a good year for Pittsburgh (might I accept some credit?), but lest Pittsburghites get too high in the clouds, they've still got this to contend with.
Congrats Sid, you're a champ. Maybe you can buy your own house now.
