Here on the Robert Wuhl Show, we’re on the side of The Working Man. The Working Man Works for a living. Hard Work is Hard. When Hard Work is completed, sometimes it’s nice to reward oneself for the Hard Work by treating oneself – and perhaps some mates – to an NHL game.
The Working Man, because he Works – unlike bankers, sportswriters, and media consultants – has a thirst that must be quenched. Beer is a fine choice, especially when attending a hockey game.
Oh, those anarchists. Always causing trouble and lighting fires when everyone else is behaving. So says the Vancouver police, who feel anarchists catalyzed the Stanley Cup riots after Game 7 this past Wednesday.
Darren Eliot covers the NHL for Versus. He also writes about hockey for si.com. Darren bet Robert dinner on the outcome of the Stanley Cup Final. Darren says he’ll be treating Robert at the Buckhead Diner. Darren joined Robert in Hour 2. Podcast after the jump.
Tim Thomas did not allow a goal, and Boston won Game 7 on the road in Vancouver to capture the Stanley Cup. Boston once again is home to a championship team, where all four of the major sport franchises have captured world championships in the past decade.
For those of you living under a rock, there’s a Game 7 in the Stanley Cup Final tonight. Hopefully you get NBC under your rock, so you can watch one of the best single-game events in sports. For your money, take an NHL playoffs Game 7 over a Super Bowl for drama any day of the week. It’s always a thrill, and especially so in the final.
