Spring is here

Finally some good weather - first outdoor BP on Wednesday, pool getting drained, people out jogging. Updates - Raptors struggling to play well at start of games. We'll get sixth overall and then play Orlando in the first round. We can beat them with our depth but our D needs to come out stronger.

Habs over Bruins in five - I'm not as confident - Savard sucked it up and is playing well. Bruins have grit - if they win game four, this is any one's series
Will the Senators win one? What's with the attempt to pump up the crowd with some type of warrior before tonight's game and then the Mountie singer (again)?
Capitals and Rangers will win
Wings coasting - San Jose - gulp what was that fold yesterday - great hits on Patrick Marleau and he showed resilience in coming back. Stars looking good is a real surprise. Minnesota will bounce back on the road with a split in Colorado.

Jays need to get more consistent hitting. D and pitching has been really good to date. I heard Alan Ashby, one of the Jays radio play by play announcers, declare that he thinks Aaron Hill will win the AL batting crown this year. I'm not sure I share his optimisim - let's see if he can hit 300 first. Vernon is going to have a huge year.

Our local Slo Pitch League is hosting a tournament in Burlington May 31 and June 1. Details will be on the SPO site soon
