So I picked eight series, seven of which have begun already. And in six of the seven Game 1s, the team I picked to win the series lost. My only winner, Wancouver (as Esa Tikkanen might say) had to go to OT to win.
But I’ve always been a big believer, and stats bear me out, that the Game 2 winner wins the series. Keep an eye on that this year.
Mr. Titleist got in the way yesterday, and today I’m working on a column, so no report cards still. I promise I’ll get to them — and I appreciate that some of youse guys have already done your own.
I want to get something straight in black-and-white here. Some of the language is crossing the lines. So in addition to our regular banned vulgarities, I DO NOT EVER WANT TO SEE THESE WORDS AGAIN:
s—bag, d—–bag, d—–nozzle, or any variation of those. And I never, ever again want to see the V-word or any vulgar, slang synonym thereof.
Are we clear on that? I’m am very serious about this. I don’t care who you are, how often you come here, or how many times you might have gotten away with those words in the past. I mean it.
