The 2011 SpoFi NHL Playoofs confidence pool standings have been updated through last night's elimination of the Sharks. grum has put a sliver of daylight between him and rumple, and mkn has dropped back a bit with the Spofi Average hot on his heels.

It looks like the worst thing that can happen (for me) is that I end up tied for first with rumple.

Every win for Tampa Bay is a 6 point gain for me.
Every win for Vancouver is a push between me and rumple.
Every win for Boston is a 1 point gain for rumple.

Since I lead by 5 points right now, the most points that rumple can get is 5 (1 more win for Boston tonight, and then 4 in the finals).
If Tampa Bay wins tonight (regardless of game 7), or Vancouver wins the Stanley Cup, then I can't be caught.

TNT cameraman has an eye for the ladies.

If the Canucks winning the cup is the price I have to pay to tie grum in the pool then I "reluctantly" accept.

Last night's 2OT game was one of the best I've ever seen, even watching it at a Ronald McDonald house.

I'm surprised that TNT cameraman thing doesn't happen more often... lord knows that's what I'd do with my camera. And it's really on the asleep-at-the-wheel director who didn't cut to another picture while the cameraman was happily zooming on bazooms.

Although honestly that might as well be part of the telecast all the time, some kind of "hot chick cam" picture-in-picture: one of the thrills of televised pro sports is seeing the hot/busty women in the seats.

What was with the superheros in costume in Cleveland today? Boston announcers were worried that they would spend too much time at the beer concession and be unavailable for emergencies elsewhere.

It must, just not televised. This cameraman must have been checking out the ladies earlier as quickly as he zoomed onto them during the clip.

On the back end of the table, I think dfleming may have clinched his Costanza, as the 'Nucks gain him three points on me, but either East team results in gains for me. Now, if the Lightning could just win their next six games, I could end up mid-table!

Lightning win! On to game 7. Go Bolts!
