As always, this is late. On June 19, the Carolina Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup defeating the Edmonton Oilers in a very intense Game 7 here in Raleigh at the RBC Center. I must admit, I’ve never been much of a hockey fan, but with the Hurricanes being Raleigh’s only professional team (and doing so well), I really enjoyed watching the games. I wasn’t willing to pay the $120+ for tickets during the playoffs, but I did watch most of the playoffs on TV.

One of the other fun things about this was that my cousin Elizabeth in Phoenix is an Edmonton Oilers fan. There were many emails and text messages sent back and forth between us during the finals…it was all in good fun. : )

Congratulations to the Hurricanes, and who knows…I may just end up buying some tickets next season.
