Chicago Blackhawks Win Most Undramatic Stanley Cup

Congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks who has won the Stanley Cup in 2010.

Despite winning in overtime, the Blackhawks won the most undramatic Stanley Cup ever. Winning on the road in Philadelphia, the crowd was not with them. However, nobody could really find the puck when it went in. The red goal light didn’t go on. No horn went off.

In a late reaction, Patrick Kane, who scored the goal, seemed to have been the only one who realized it. His teammates almost seemed to joined him only because they wanted to believe him that he scored the winning goal.

Even the referee had to go to the box for something or rather, almost as if to see if a video replay were warranted, after the fact as the Blackhawks were celebrating. It took a replay to confirm it did go in because even the commentators seemed uncertain for a little while.

Wow. How uneventful could an overtime Stanley Cup winning goal be!

I didn’t even flinch.

Did you if you were watching it?

Great to see an Original Six team win it again, and at least one championship drought ended, too.

Oh, congrats also to Marian Hossa. After 2 consecutive years of having been on teams with 3-2 leads in the Stanley Cup final, only to lose, he finally wins one. I don’t think he thought the Blackhawks would be winning quite as much as he did when he sold out to join the Penguins, then to join the Red Wings who had beaten the Penguins only to get beaten in the rematch last spring. You can’t be unlucky forever, Marian, as much of a loser as you are.

Jonathan Toews won the Conn Smythe trophy and deservedly so.

Now, are the Natives and Native rights activists going to protest the politically incorrect name and logo of the Blackhawks?

I say get on the Washington Redskins first. Actually, the Cleveland Indians would be the better first choice with the dorky smiling Indian logo. At least the Blackhawks and Redskins have tough looking logos that at least had the intent to imply respect, whether some interpret it to be so or not.

Any other suggestions for politically incorrect team names that should get changed?

Goals & Indicators – Update 1 on my Earth Day 2010 Pledge to Eat Better Practically

For Earth Day 2010, I made a pledge to eat better. By “better”, I meant healthier and better for the environment. Translated that meant better quality food and more locally grown. However, I wasn’t going to die for it, as oxymoronic as that may sound. After all, by eating food that don’t have what I need, I’d be shortening my lifespan if allowed to live out on health alone, so I was implying I’d rather die for bad food than good food. What I was committing to was a practical lifestyle change rather than something extreme.

This is the first of many installments I hope to blog about changes I have incorporated into my life towards my Earth Day 2010 pledge to eat better.
