Congratulations to the Detroit Red Wings who won the 2008 Stanley Cup last night, with a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins last night in Pittsburgh at the Mellon Arena. Another hockey team inched closer to a championship in Wilkes-Barre, PA. as the Chicago Wolves beat the SWB Pens last night 6-1. In any event, good win for the South Siders last night at the Cell as Paul Konerko hit a walk-off homer in the 15th inning to give the Sox a 6-4 win over the Royals.
Cubs finally lost a game last night in San Diego. Maddux didn't win but pitched well.
As far as Clemens and Bonds are concerned, I think here's an important lesson. Sometimes, a proud star athlete stays around too long and then people take shots at him. I still maintain that both of these guys are slam-dunk Hall of Famers.
In honor of Dave Niehaus being inducted into Cooperstown, on the top of this post is a picture from February with the Press Conference indicating that he won the Frick Award.
