Congrats Tim Thomas
Dude played out of his mind. I started out hoping Vancouver would win the Cup because of some friends I have from there, but by the end I was hoping Boston would take it just for Thomas. He earned it.
Re: Congrats Tim Thomas
I didn't want Boston to win (we certainly don't need to give any more ammo to obnoxious New Englanders after relatively recent title runs by the Celts, Sox, and Pats...although I guess it is somewhat satisfying that Belichick/Brady currently have the longest streak right now without a title among Boston Sports teams...the Cheetahs last won in 2004, with the Sox last title in 2007, Celtics in 2008, and Bruins in 2011).
I also wanted to see the Canadian Olympics streak continue (after Calgary hosted the Olympics, the Flames won the Cup the next NHL season...after Montreal hosted the Olympics, the Canadiens won the Cup the next NHL season..after Vancouver hosted the Olympics, the Canucks came within one game of winning the Cup the next NHL season...oh well).
But in the end, I suppose that I was happy for the Wrecking Ball. He won his 3rd cup 20 years after winning his 1st Cup 20 years ago with the Pens. It was too bad that he wasn't a part of our Stanley Cup winning team two years ago.
