Congratulations to True Blue Mike for going 4-0 in the conference semifinals predictions—and not needing the tiebreakers he forgot to post. So, TBM, with the support of a great majority of your peers, you have been declared the winner.

Noah-Rangers, 28, who couldn’t get into the winner’s circle in the beard contest, did come in second in the second-round predictions contest on a tiebreaker after picking three of four series correctly.

Good job, boys. Send me your mailing addresses so I can ship out our modest prizes (Reminder, anybody who gets a good prize from out three contests, those were all donated by our friend ilb2001—so thanks again, ilb. Anybody who gets a mediocre prize, well, that’s from me). Email me at rcarpini@lohud.com.

And for our first-round contest winners and beard contest winners, don’t go looking at the mailbox for your prizes yet. I haven’t had time to mail out anything yet. Patience. Patience.

Only able to catch the end of Nucks-Sharks last night, so not much to review … except from what I understand, the Sedin twins checked in. I think this will be a very good, long series. I suspect the same in the Least.

Also caught the latter parts of Red Sox-Yankees, and heard Bobby Valentine and Orel Hershiser noting that the new Stadium isn’t very loud anymore, and then they, with help from their cameramen, mocked some of the “padded seats” fans who were busy playing with their phones. Good for them.
