    No not that kind but the St Louis Blues. They won the Stanley Cup tonight. They have never won it before. The last time they made it to the Stanley Cup Finals was 49 years ago and I was in seventh grade. Yes, I am excited.

    Will someone que up Gloria?

    YES!

    Not a hockey fan but I watched tonight. Nice to see someone other than Boston win something, particular since it was the first for the franchise...

    Such a great game, totally shut down the Bruins. Binnington was superb and could have easily won the Conn Smythe Trophy but O'rielly just carried the team for this series.

    23 points + scoring 4 goals in consecutive playoff games...he tied Marchand for the playoff points lead & Gretzky with the latter, for his efforts. His checking & physicality were also very evident

    Growing up in the St. Louis area the Blues have been my team since I was a kid. We've been waiting a long time for this moment. Always in the playoffs but could never get over the hump...until now. The city is buzzing.

    I'm not even close to a hockey fan but I watched a few games. It was nice to see St. Louis win--the Columbus Blue Jackets story was nice too. And you can call me a weanie, but I always dig watching the teams line up and shake hands after it's over.

    From last to first is a great way to end a 52 year drought. And now all of the original expansion teams still existing have won the cup. I just hope I can live long enough for Toronto to win again

    I also really like the hand shakes after each series. It shows a level of class and the idea that they all know it is a game. They could have been fighting ten minutes earlier but after it is over congratulate each other.
