Blah.  There's no 'fair' about it.  If Calgary wins, it's because they're the better team - and that's fair.  If Tampa wins, it's for the same reasons, and it's still fair.

Last night Tampa played like a team coming off a tough series, and the Flames played like a well rested team - and pulled out a much deserved victory.  They're definitely a very very good team and are no fluke.  They were also faster than Tampa in their passing and in regular moving around the ice.    They have also been an excellent road team - so a win was not to be a suprise.

If Tampa can't win tomorrow - I expect the flames to win in 5 or 6.

If Tampa can even it up tomorrow, they'll be very much alive given the Flames tendency to play worse at home than on the road.

Plus, the Lightning just got their first look at a very very different team than the one they spent the last 2 weeks playing.  Now they'll have something to adjust to.   I still expect a close series - but I guess I won't be too suprised if Calgary cruses.

I believe in personal responsibility.  

I saw an interview with Morgan Spurlock on CNBC last night - and the main point that he made was that his entire movie, from top to bottom, is all about personal responsibility.

I work in the art department of a visual effects/animation studio in Dallas.  We do lots of commercial work, and lots of work with Hasbro.  We're about to wrap production on the full length GI Joe movie Valor Vs. Venom.

I started there a year ago as a lowly intern working for free, but am now on a 1 year contract and have gotten a chance to learn and start working my way up.   Now I'm working more hands on in preproduction work for commercials, making animatics, etc...In july I'll be running outpost editing on....ready for this...

Three Star Wars commercials.  

Eventually I hope to learn a lot of editing, compositing and visual effects.

My first trip was at age 16, I went on a small three show tour with my friend's band...from florida up to upstate NY.

My second trip was the good one though - the next year at age 17, we drove up to Pittsburgh to go white water rafting, but it was really a detour because the entire point of the trip was to go to the Smithsonian and see the Magic of Myth exhibit.

It was an awesome trip.

Well, since no one's biting on your thread...I'll chime in.  I like the books - I'm reading the 5th one now.  The movies are okay, but I think the second one was a little slow...  I'm looking forward to the new one and think the movies won't really start getting good until the fourth - which is the best book by far (keeping in mind I'm only 200 pages into book 5).

Don't count out another trilogy...there's too much money in it for it to not be pushed for by someone or some studio or some director or some whatever...rumor also has it that Spielberg [shudder] is interested.

I'll be buying the VOTC figures in duplicate (to open one...)  - any NEW sculpts in duplicate and any paint jobs that make a few figure in duplicate.

I won't buy a single repack - vehicle or otherwise.

Except possibly for some army builders - but not many.

Does this mean I could get 70+ for my five?  I'd sell them in a heartbeat for that - set the money aside, then buy 3 four packs when they finally start selling them.

Wow - can't say I didn't expect that to happen the way Philly controlled the entire game...

Game 1:  Tampa Bay
Game 2:  Philladelphia
Game 3:  Tampa Bay
Game 4:  Philladelphia
Game 5:  Tampa Bay
Game 6:  Philladelphia
Game 7:  See a pattern developing here?  

Hopefully it holds true - gotta say I'm awfully glad the next one is at home...

Wow.

Holy! Tie game. Going to overtime!

I really think I'm going to puke.  (not from disgust, from nerves)

Okay - is anyone watching this game or what???!  4-3 Bolts at the second intermission - and I'm about to have a heart attack...

Lots of hockey left to play...

I can barely take this.

Go Flyers! (Sorry KBZ ;))

Not necessary.  :)   Tampa's got that us against the world thing going on right now - and I think the team and the city like it that way.   I don't know if I can stand another game like game 5 though without throwing up...my stomach was in my chest the whole last 30 minutes.
