Go Bolts!!

p.s. My first Yankee game I saw Mickey Mantle play. I was imprinted at an early age and there is NO way I can reprogram myself to like a new team after 50+ years.
I doubt more than 1% of the population could even tell you who is vieing for the Stanley Cup.
And even if Bolts get the cup again i doubt fans from other teams are all of a sudden going to become Bolts fans.
Dynasty? maybe when they have accumulated a dozen Stanley Cups or won 5 in a row,winning a Stanley cup once every 10 years doesnt strike me as a dynasty..
That said unless they choke it seems its the Bolts cup this year.
Enjoy

I barely follow it - just watching the replay of game 3 now though; it appears LeBron is on a mission/possessed. Guess he was serious about bringing Cleveland a trophy when coming back. He's one of the greatest of all times. Dellavedova is unlikely hero.

Okay, now that I've finished watching game 3, I think I'll have to watch the rest of the way - pretty damn good finish. LeBron vs Curry.....I don't think we've heard the last from the GSWs/Curry.

Not so fast Buc ... plenty of transplanted folks love sports, but can only afford to go to a handful of games. For which games do you think they'll buy tickets ?

NFL: If their teams don't play here once every five seasons, I'd hope they wouldn't hold off until their team shows to play the Bucs.

NHL: Blackhawks played here what? Once this past season before the playoffs?

MLB: Some teams never play here (ie NL teams vs Rays) - so will those fans never go to baseball games?

Of course if you can't pay your rent and grocery bills, by all means, don't go to baseball games, movie theater, or even eat out. It's all relative.

Coming from Buffalo I will always be a Bills and Sabres fan, but I have also been a Lightning fan since 1992 when they entered the league.

Next year I will attend a Sabres/Lightning game in Tampa and thoroughly enjoy some great hockey regardless of the outcome.

They are very young and have a pipeline of talent behind them, this organization built the team the right way through their farm system, having said that I think they have as much chance as anyone to be a dynasty in the salary cap era definition of a dynasty, which isn't a dozen cups I think 3 in 5 o 6 years qualifies for that term.
