I felt a great disturbance in the Force. As if millions of brackets suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

On the upside, the Congrats, Lightning! and Congrats, Penguins! videos will be legendary. And Ajax beat Juventus, so I'm not too bothered about my bracket being messed up.

And no one except for me cares, and there isn't even a baseball thread. Oh BTW Yankees beat the Red Sox 8-0 today, so I'm happy about that.

Well. At least the Sharks took one game. I'll be shocked if we survive Game 5 at this point.

My cousin's daughter has season tickets to the Jackets and flew back for the playoffs even though his job had relocated to Silicon Valley. Now there are fans who deserve a reward. Players at the game said they had never heard such noise before.

Did you know that Columbus is considerably bigger than Cincinnati? But not in the public imagination.

They won with energy, bench depth, and smart persistent 2 2 1 defense, plus a clutch goalie (Bobs). This formula might carry them through the second round as well
