Hello fellow hockey lovers!! I'm kinda sad that the season is almost over. Seems like the off season lasts forever!! My favorite team is the Carolina Hurricanes. I know I know, we are sucking the light out of the arena the last few seasons but I still hold out hope til the play offs get here. My next fav is the Lightning. I love me some St Louis!! We've been following hockey for about 10 years now. can't believe its been so long. And we've had to learn most of the rules by watching the game and figuring it out.
Most MLB players were Protestant until about 1990.
From 1990 to today most MLB players are Catholic! The anti-Catholic mainstream media will not point this out!
What I find odd is that most of the team chaplains are Protestant. Unfortunately, Catholics should be chaplains for Catholics; Protestant chaplains can talk about the Bible and pray with Catholic players but will fall short because of the nature of their denominations (having no Eucharist and no apostolic succession as the most glaring weaknesses).
Speaking of the Miami Heat, I just found out that their head coach, Erik Spoelstra, played basketball from the same college I go to (University of Portland). I will let you all root for who you guys prefer in the NBA finals, but I now have an incentive to root for the heat.
I was disappointed that Butler lost and how poorly they shot the ball, but I still thought it was a good game. I like defensive struggles. Butler and UConn both played outstanding defense and displayed, IMHO, a mental toughness. I guess you could argue, as did one of the commentators, that Butler going to the zone late was waving the white flag. I don't see it. The coach had to do something. Maybe not the right something in his eyes but it's debatable. Had Butler hit even 50% from the field I think they might have won. So, I think they played well except for shooting the ball, which is, of course, critical. They were dismal. I think worst ever. Shooting can be psychological. I kept thinking that the law of averages would catch up and they would get a string of buckets to make it close. It's absoltuely phenomenal that it didn't happen. Butler can't really complain though. They got so many good looks and shots right under the basket. So, in my mind, they did break down the UConn defense but failed to capitalize in a spectacular way. My two cents. Congrats to UConn.
I will definitely agree with you on that one, Big Ro. I was hoping Butler would have pulled the upset, but I guess UCONN earned it.
