Who Do You Love?March 13, 2008
Obviously at this time of year you want your team to win but if you are like me I am scoreboard watching like crazy! Right now I am so thankful for my Spring TREO that allows me to continually check the status of games of interest. I wonder if the people at ESPN are seeing my increased use in their bottom line numbers?
“Guys…ummmm…we had ten thousand hits on the Vancouver game last night and 8500 of them came from Spring Hill Tennessee!” See…I’m a little over the top!
Seriously…who has time to surf youtube or myspace when this kind of stuff is on your PDA!
My Predators find themselves in a tight race for a playoff birth in the west and you can bet that I am watching the scores in games that Colorado and Vancouver play. Tonight will be no exception which is why I am bringing the “Who Do You Love” feature back. Each day I will be highlighting the teams that you should be rooting to give the Preds a little playoff push.
Tonight I give you…
The Edmonton Oliers: The Oilers travel tonight to Colorado to take on the Sakic and Forsberg led Av’s. The Av’s sit at 82 points with 11 games remaining. The Oliers will need all they have tonight to get two points of of Colorado who are 8-2 over their last 10 games. Edmonton is no slouch either having won 7 of their last 10 as well…The Oilers would like nothign better than to play spoiler to the Av’s attempt to make the playoffs this year. Here is their first of three chances over the next 11 games. C’mon Oliers!
The Phoenix Coyotes: Yes those pesky Yotes who looked like they might be contenders at one point (they still have an outside chance sitting at 75 points with 12 games left) paly host to the Vancouver Canucks tonight. The Canucks recieved some bad news when they learned that defencemen Mattias Ohlund to a season ending knee injury. Ohlund’s veteran leadership and steady play will be missed by the Canucks. Gretzky will have to have his boys ready to go tonight as they look to climb back into the thick of things with a big win over a team directly in front of them.
So there you have it Pred fans…tonight we not only wear the home blues of the Preds but the road whites of the Oilers and the home crimson of the Yotes.
