    Thanks, you know why I ask you it then. BTW F1 driver Fernando Alonso was born in Oviedo.

    "Never Been to Spain" is a great song, by the way. I'd love to visit your beautiful country one day.
    OK, Iīm sorry but sometimes I donīt understand somethings because I donīt speak English very well.

    Never heard that song. You are invited to come whenever you want.

    You are an asset to the Planet, Steeler bro. You do well in English. Wish I knew Spanish.



    Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.

    Born and raised in Toronto, Canada. In the '70's you were limited to at most 3 games a week plus the MNF. The Bills are our local team and there was never much to watch there. So the teams that were most often on nationally were Dallas, Oakland, and the Steelers. I'd watch alone as a young kid and which of these teams was the one that I wanted to follow. I don't remember if I was on board yet for the first SB victory, but definitely for #2 and beyond.

    The other two teams were bitter rivals with us, back in that day. They are still bitter.

    BTW, Leafs in 7 ??? I'd enjoy that greatly.

    I remember the rivalries very well and have enjoyed most of it - except 1995. As for the Leafs, my fan card pretty much expired about 10 years ago when I first got direct tv and started watching hockey from other markets. When the direct cards finally got zapped for good I couldn't go back to watching the plodding style of the Leafs. Must say though, after nine years it is good to see hockey back here, and the fan base has done a good job of keeping expectations in check. Very unlike Leaf fans. I'm sure that the Pens would much prefer to see the Leafs in the second round rather than the Bruins but either way it will be a physical series. The Leafs are not as good as Boston, but they would still be tough. Problem with the Leafs is that their tougher players have limited skill and can't play much. The Bruins have big tough guys who can play.

    My son is dying for the Pens to win it, he is a huge Sidney fan, but you guys better get that goaltending under wraps otherwise you might find yourselves stuck with Luongo this off-season.
