ABO: Anyone But Ottawa

stanley cupFor the second straight year, I'm watching the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs without an emotional interest. My team isn't there, so it's relaxed viewing. I usually root for teams with players I drafted in the pool.

This afternoon I caught the last two periods of the Ottawa - Pittsburgh game, and I realized I do have an emotional interest. I passionately want the Ottawa Senators to lose. In fact, when it comes to rooting for a champion, it's ABO. ABO stands for "Anyone But Ottawa" and I stole it from Freddie P.

Go Pens Go!

No Yzerman + No Shanny = No Cup.

As for Ottawa, I'll believe it when I see it.

Im from Ottawa, and ya, not the greatest city in the world, its well known. But for tononto fans or mtl..wherever, for you to hate on Ottawa is just retarded. I know we're "rivals" but really, do you want the States to really win the cup...think about that one! Hockey is one sport Canada truly deserves to be the best at. The US wants to beat us, because we're Canada, they feel the need to be better! So suck it up, enjoy the fact that Canada is kicking ass in all aspects of Hockey! Cause you know is the HABS or the LEAFS would have made it, you would have us al l rooting for you no matter how much its hurts. So unless you are just truly hard headed, keep hating on the sens, cause it seems to be giving them more balls!

I guess I'm truly hard headed because I can't see myself rooting for the Sens any time soon.
