  • Eric, This was a phenomenal game, at least if you were a Hawks fan. After Bill Phillips scored at the five second mark, he scored again two minutes later. The Maroons built a 4-0 lead before the Black Hawks started their comeback. The Maroons led 4-2 with two minutes left in the game.

  • In case you have been living under a rock, which means the United States when it comes to hockey, three of my good friends have just proven that hockey did not start in Canada, but was a European import.

  • I'm working on a new statistic that involved the recently completed first two round of the playoffs an am curious as to some feedback. Because I am on the West Coast, I don't get the luxury of leaving work early to watch the East Coast playoff games.

  • The difference with file sharing, specifically but not isolated to Napster, was that music publishers were losing money because music fans were opting to share a file off of someone's computer as opposed to buying a commercially available recording or file.
