    I enjoy visiting these forums to talk motorcycles and to escape the stress and anxiety associated with toiling away at a career, raising children, managing financial responsibilities, and the associated rigors of modern life in general. As a longtime fan of the Boston Bruins, I find your post to be terribly insensitive to those of us that have been left with little choice but to switch off our television sets now that the postseason has begun and our teams have been sent packing. With zero Canadian teams chasing La Coupe Stanley this year, how do you think this post has made our Brothers and Sisters North of the Border feel? You sir or madame have been reckless in your comments! In the spirit of Earth Day, I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you were simply caught up in the "Thrill of Victory" and not intentionally kicking those of us who are already down and mired in the "Agony of Defeat". I don't know about you, but I was taught from an early age that it was impolite to discuss politics, religion, and playoff hockey outside of the home. Then again as long as it ain't the Habs, Go Hawks!

    I had to go to bed. It's tough being a studmeister. Girls or Hockey and since there is still lots of hockey left.............................

    As to not having any Canadian teams in the run, heartbreaking, sorrowful and embarrassing. However, ain't no hockey in the USofA without us Canadians showing them how to do it, up close and personal like.

    For those that don't know, Kane got called out by a coach of one the biggest dynasties in Hockey, the Boston Bruins and Don Cherry.

    There are a couple ways to speed it up. 1) Record the game on your PVR. There are about 2 minutes of commercials between each half inning or 34 minutes in total per game that you can eliminate with 4 quick hits on the 30 second fast forward button at the end of each half inning. Whenever they change pitchers there is another 2 minutes of commercials you can eliminate the same way. Note, if I start watching the game before it is over, I am careful to hit the mute button first then menu/4-1 to get to the recording; then select the game and "start over." Works well - and probably shortens the game on average 45 minutes. A fellow fan and friend claims I am watching history. My rebuttal is that if I don't know the result or how it happened, it doesn't matter. Besides, I am no good at reading a book or working a Sudoku puzzle for two minute stretches, nor do I have to pee that often.

    As a Canadian, I am of course a Blue Jays fan and watched all of their games - until today. Somehow forgot to program that recording. Oh shoot! Did record "Blue Jays in 30" which condenses all the big plays into 30 minutes. If your favorite team also has almost daily 30 minute re-caps on TV (and you don't have three hours or so to watch the full game,) you might consider recording it. You can still eliminate the commercials too.

    I do worry a little that when this method of TV watching becomes too popular, the folks buying all those TV adds may start paying less for them. Could this mean that some big name baseball players only get paid $15 - 20 million a year? Well, most of us BMW riders could survive on that income if absolutely forced too, and those baseball players do it more for the love of the game than the money.
