I don’t know how many of you watch hockey these days, stuff but I just have to say: You should.
The NHL playoffs this year have been amazing so far, and I look forward to watching the Carolina Hurricanes take the Stanley Cup this month.
Rod Brind’Amour, Cam Ward, and all the other ‘Canes players have put their hometown — Raleigh, N.C. (Or rather, “the Raleigh-Durham Metropolitan Statistical Area”) — on the map this year (Really! It’s on the right-hand side, under Washington, D.C.), and they deserve all the applause they’re getting at the RBC Center this week.
Sorry Oilers fans, but at the risk of sounding like someone who doesn’t spend all day hunched over a keyboard… Go ‘Canes!
