The magical powers of my sisters...

Been a while since my last blog...

Well, K & L, thanks to your presence, the Liverpool FC has done the unthinkable and made it to the UEFA Champions League Final. A phantom goal gave them a 1-0 aggregate victory over my semi-beloved Chelsea Blues, a team that had just captured the English Premiership title. It is amazing that Liverpool managed to not allow a single Chelsea goal... Chelsea are a team that routinely scores 2 to 4 goals a game. Liverpool finished 33 points back of Chelsea in the Premiership play... they are the worst team to ever make the European Championship final, based on their standing in their national league. AC Milan and PSV meet today, and then it's off to Istanbul at the end of May for the final.

Even without the SC playoffs, there are still plenty of good sporting events to watch at this time of year. The World Championships of Hockey have been pretty good so far from what I've seen, although the mighty Denmark team hasn't fared so well (lost 7-0 to a very depleted Swedish team). And Rick Nash... he's just been incredible so far. With MLB starting up and the NBA playoffs providing minor excitement sans-Lakers (though sans-Timberwolves as well, unfortunately), there's enough to fill the void, although no Champions league for the next 2 to 3 weeks isn't cool at all.

Got drunk in a flower shop the other night... pretty unique experience, I must say.

New Sleater-Kinney out on May 23. That's all that matters musically right now. Well, there are others, but I'll get to them another time.

The new Ryan Adams is pretty swell i'm finding.

MLB is great so far. The Yanks stole the best pitchers from 3 teams and they suck! It's fantastic!

And if you're Canadian and a Basketball fan, you can't help but be a little excited by Steve Nash. GO Celtics howevr.

I had picked the Red Sox not to make the playoffs, but who knows, it could be the Yanks. I thought the White Sox were going to be the wildcard team... but they may just win the pennant over Minnesota. Still early, though.

And Steve Nash as the MVP... that's unreal. He succeeded despite the poor national program (though the Victoria area is probably the hotbed of amateur basketball in Canada) and turned conventional thinking on its head. That Suns/Mavericks series should be a doozy.
