So, I'm pulling for the Pats this weekend at the Memorial Cup in Regina. I divulged this in yesterday's commentary. The on-line feedback is rich.
One guy says "...the Pats come in well rested and healed and their opponents are tired, bruised and beaten up. The Cup rules must change...that being said, I just do not like the Pats."
Moose Jaw born and raised Cal Hobbs, whose boy Connor played for Regina says "Go Pats".
And then, one of his old buddies says "Now that Hobbs Jr. isn't on the team, there's no reason to completely lose your marbles, Carns....#Warriors".
And then, Brendan says, "Can't do it. Spent too many cold nights on the farm with no cable TV or sports entertainment anywhere except CHAB - Carns and the Warriors. I've been brainwashed to NOT cheer for the Pats...forever."
Wow. That one almost brought a tear to my eye. And now, I feel I'm letting Brendan down. Sorry, pal. Thanks for listening.
