Tampa Bay Lightning win the Stanley Cup!


Recommended Posts

Well, I’m not really that much of an NHL fan.

But still, congratulations to the other Florida hockey team for winning the Stanley Cup!

This could be a fun year for Florida professional sports teams overall, with Tampa Bay winning the NHL championship, Heat are in the finals, Tampa Bay Rays and Marlins are both in the playoffs, the Buccaneers have Tom Brady and Gronk.. and the Dolphins, well, still early in the season. 😂

All this success in one state at the same time is cool but it's sure gonna make the Dolphins troubles stand out even more.

Most Dolphins fans are actually pretty excited over the progression of the team and aren't expecting playoffs this year anyway.

GASP ... real fans who understand what their team is actually trying to do???? 

lol good, I'm glad. That's the right way to go about this and I'm happy for them.

Just saying that in general their bumpy year is gonna bring on even more ridicule if the rest of the teams are good. I'm sure there's some "even the Marlins are good and you guys still suck" joke there for the Dolphins to be hit with.

Most of the Dolphins fans I know are rooting for them to continue sucking this year due to the zillion picks we have again in this years draft (quite a few are also hoping for the Texans to continue sucking and for Watson to go down with an injury since we also own their 1st and 2nd this year and they're already 0-3).  I think Flores bought himself at least 3 full years and maybe more with what he was able to accomplish last year using scraps and having the worst roster in the NFL. 

But anyway, NFL games are boring as hell these days with most teams being able to hang 25+ a game thanks to all the flags being thrown against defenses.  It just doesn't excite me like it used to and I've largely stopped watching games altogether save for a few a year. I still follow religiously in terms of team news, box scores, highlights, etc. and can tell you nearly everything going on with them but quality of game play across the league has really been lacking for a good 10-15 years now.  In terms of watchability give me baseball, hockey, or even basketball any day football.  I even find televised golf more entertaining than the NFL these days.

Ooh no, I don't want Watson hurt ever. I like watching him play.

 

Just ... continue to suck, Texans.
