i refer you to this for confirmation that i actually did this...

WESTERN CONFERENCE

detroit v. edmonton
dallas v. colorado
calgary v. anaheim
nashville v. san jose

my picks: edmonton, colorado, calgary, san jose. THREE OUT OF FOUR!

EASTERN CONFERENCE

ottawa v. tampa
carolina v. montreal
new jersey v. ny rangers
buffalo v. philadelphia

my picks: ottawa, carolina, new jersey, buffalo FOUR OUT OF FOUR!!

i don't believe i have EVER picked 7 of 8 or done that well on ANY pool. of course i put no money on this. dammit! could The Curse be no more????

The Curse refers to the fact that whomever or whatever i root for or vote for, they lose. restaurants we like close. hell, we get season NHL tickets, and the league has a lockout! alas, there's no 'reverse psychology' at work, so i couldn't root for, say, detroit in the hopes they would lose...The Curse seems to know when i'm trying to play it. and it appears detroit didn't need my help to lose ANYWAY, eh [livejournal.com profile] odinkar? *wink*

of course, given last week's election, one could argue that maybe The Curse is still intact, and just lulling me into a false sense of security, hoping i'll bet the house on the conference semifinals.

HA! i am smarter than any silly ol' Curse. and i am too poor to bet anything anyway.

so, my predictions wishes are:

Western Conference

San Jose v. Edmonton
Anaheim v. Colorado

go colorado and edmonton (sorry [livejournal.com profile] kelliem)

Eastern Conference

Ottawa v. Buffalo
Carolina v. New Jersey

go ottawa and carolina. i know, carolina violates the rules (see first link above) but i've gone to see them several times since they play in basically my sister's back yard. it's almost like a home team.

Actually, I can root for either SJ or Colorado. :)

Heh. Someone's always a goon to the person rooting for the other team. ;D I have my share of guys I can't stand ::koff::bertuzzi::koff::

The worst part of Detroit's choking is Steve Yzerman. No one that good should have to end on a bad note (of course, I feel that way about Mario Lemieux, Brett Favre, and the like too).

Although I'll be rooting for Anaheim now because 1) Colorado SUCKS. ;)

and 2) (and more importantly) Chris Kunitz is on their starting line-up, and he graduated from my alma mater, so he's the only professional sports star out there from Ferris. We used to have a football player, but he didn't do too well, and I believe he's now playing in the Arena Football League.

Oh, and there's nothing wrong with rooting for Carolina, for the New Jersey Devils (just like the Avalanche and Flyers) suck on principle.
