I agree... SOCCER Rules..... GO USA!!

I've been exposed to other sports...college football.... WAR EAGLE!
... NASCAR .... go Mark Martin..(he's old and bald like me)
... hockey.... never understood that one.. (sorry you Canadian members)
... and just recently ... Cricket.. we've got several Indian employees and it's BIG over there... it's a mixture of baseball, croquet and lacross..all mixed up....

but in the end, watching any sport is better that going to the opera... ;o)

bah futbol, thats not a sport :finga: *runs behind bullet proof glass*

i never really got the idea of soccer honestly, mostly because i never played it as a kid, i always played hockey (i mean, im canadian, i gotta), football (american/canadian football that is), baseball, and anyother hockey based sports :mrgreen:

People please.. its FOOTBALL not soccer, FOOTBALL.

Thats why we have FIFA - Federation of International FOOTBALL Associations
Its not FISA - Federation of International Soccer Associations now is it!

Get it right! :) :) :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

In my opinion football is the greatest game to ever grace this planet, hockey is also good however! :)

Since the good old Edmonton Oilers are the last Canadian hockey team left in the series (and I am from Canada) I get my vote is a bit biased towards them :)

But anyway, both teams are fantastic and any of them that wins would be fantastic! :finga:

I would have voted Edmonton before game 1, but one of their goalies is going to have to pull a winning streak out of his nose to give them a chance.

Go Edmonton!

conklin and markennen are both great goaltenders, i hated the fact everyone at school today was putting them down, since not many people have actually watched either play

and i still cant figure out how Cam Ward (carolina goalie) did all that he did to keep Carolina in that game

I am cheering for EDM all the way, but now with Roloson hurt, my hopes of bringing the Cup back to Canada have pretty much faded.... he was their MVP, and the biggest reason for their Playoff run :(

GO OIL!

They deserve to win, they were embarrassed in the first round by my Stars for so many years. Its good to see them get their chance. :)

NEXT YEAR THE STARS WILL RULE ALL (unless they suck)

The Stars do suck, it will be the Blues next year with 2 (Yes, count them 2) 1st round draft picks this season.

no offense but it will take more then 2 rookies to fix the train wreck that is the St Louis Blues, What about between the pipes? who do they have? Curtis Sanford? Patrick Lalime? and name one veteran leader on that team that has deep playoff experience Keith Tkachuk couldnt lead a fish to water. And Barret Jackman is too young to get the respect from that teams veterans.

With that said though you are right about my Stars sucking :( maybe if our coach wasnt such a softie our veterans might get something done and maybe if Turco's balls would drop and he became a man he might be a competent goaltender when it counts.
