Tonight marks the 16th Stanley Cup Finals series to go to a Game Seven. One of those games went to overtime. Canadian teams are 6-5 overall; one of the five represents the time the Canucks helped end the New York Rangers's half-century drought in 1994.

This has the potential to be a memorable sporting evening. Or not.

Sorry we doubted you. Sorry about the criticism and the sarcasm and occasional wisecracks.

It wasn't nice when Shawn Thornton went on the radio and the jock-talk guys asked him, "Do you think your coach looks more like Charlie Brown or Elmer Fudd?"

Too easy to poke fun, right? So what if you look a little like Hank Hill's friend, Bill Dauterive. Or Mr. Potato Head. We've come to love the way you punch the second "t" when you say, "tonigh ... ttttt."

Nailed it.
