The 91 Canada Cup was the last time I saw the Gretzky of the 80s. Every game he was dominating. But I digress...I was going to ask you, did you watch the 93 semifinals (Kings against Toronto)? Were you a Leaf fan at that time? Game 7 was vintage Gretz.

Wasn't a Leaf fan at the time... you're exposing my inadequacies as a long term fan Michael. I've been an Oilers fan all my life, and a Curtis fan since his days with the Oil... I adopted further teams when he signed with them. But, I do remember vaguely that West Semi-final...

Potvin ... finally, something we can agree on

Hey, that's okay...I didn't become a hockey fan 'till 89, when the Flames went to the finals and beat Montreal. I was 12 then. I wish I started watching when I was 8, so I could have seen Gretz in all his glory. His best season, though many may not know, was '85, which would have been a perfect time to start watching. He scored a ridiculous 47 points in only 18 playoff games that year! He also scored 2.77 points per game during the regular season. Ridiculous. But, yeah, I didn't start watching hockey till later either.

You know, this finals is interesting for me, 'cause deep down I want Anaheim to win, since I've always liked Paul Karyia ("Little Gretzky"), and because I detest NJ. But, at the same time, I don't want to write love poetry to Paul K. So, really, this is a win win situation for me, no matter what happens. If NJ wins, I don't have to write poetry, but if Anaheim wins, I'll be happy for them. I will say that should Anaheim win the Cup, I think it would be great for the sport. Imagine the publicity the Stanley Cup would be given by Disney? I can just see Mickey hoisting it now. It's a marketing dream. Should be interesting...

Little Gretzky...

He's so small, but he tries so big

Hilarious. He's like Wayne's mini me. He is tiny, hey? Like, really tiny. I can't believe he's lasted this long in the NHL. I mean, the guy's the size of a jockey or something, a jockey on skates!

Where's all the ladies tonight?

Is it just you, me, and a jock? That's a very disturbing Saturday night if you ask me

Do you know who Gordon Pinsent is? I met him tonight at an awards ceremony for the Canadian Actor's Union (ACTRA).

Yes, believe me, I know...I'm reading the script of the Architect scene from Reloaded right now in the Matrix thread...I told everyone I was going to bed early tonight, but I just couldn't do it. And now everyone is gone. I guess I'm the only attraction in this place? Everyone must leave if I'm not here? I just don't know.

Yeah, he's a Canadian legend of sorts, isn't he? He's been on several Canadian TV shows, if I remember...he was in a hockey series once, right? So are you a budding actor, or were you just at the ceromony?

You just couldn't resist my witty banter.

It's ok, many have fallen ill to my trash talk.

Not so much... most of my bio stuff is in my profile. I'm attempting a Master's in Architecture coincidentally...

Well, I was hoping you came on here to set Chizip straight, but he's so bent out of shape that that will most likely never happen. hehe

Ah, a math wizard. That's why you and Chiz get on so well...two math wizards...(not that I know he's a math wizard, but he's good with graphics, so you never know).
