A.  thanks to robf i am able to find this site now. i was getting that old picture of the fab 5 the last 3 days and thinking the blog-world had ended.

b.  you have apparently served whatever purgatory you were sentenced to, and are back in the saddle putin.  good.

c.  i really am pulling for the caps.  ovi has paid his dues and they are  have been a historically collapsing team in the cup playoffs.  good for them,  go caps.

Glad to have been of assistance, XM.  As it was, you were one of several I hadn't seen yet on MGoBlog 3.0, now I wonder how many hundreds or even thousands of others are checking that geocities FauxGoBlog and pounding on their "refresh" button hoping the screen might change.

Guessing a significant drop off in traffic.   The weird thing is that on Tuesday night I signed in and got the new site. The next day, not, and I figured they had some stumble in the new platform and would get back at it.

Oh well, different, not better, but I figure there's a learning curve and I'll like it eventually.

Here we are, back in Medieval Times Arena for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup. That concert in the middle of a fountain was a bit odd and very Vegas.

The Capitals are playing more like "selling out to win" the whole series. It shows. Vegas would be a great story, but they are not as hungry.

definitely cheering for the Caps.

no offense to VGK fans, but the caps fans have been supporting them for 40 years without a Cup and 20 years since their last SC appearance...

i'm still not convinced VGK fans won't pull a Florida Panthers/Caroline Hurricane disappearing act once they aren't consistently winning.

I hate it when tv broadcasts pot down crowd noise so that we can hear the boring announcers.

This broadcast doesn't have that problem. Game sounds electric. I love the Caps fans out there in Vegas. 

If they hold on, I'm really happy for them. I love seeing fanbases coalesce around a team, and for so long it looked like Washington fans would never see their team come through. Reminds me of rooting for the Wings in the 90s. 

Anyway 6:52 to go. This is great.

Maybe time dialation is a thing, but it sure seemed to me that the refs added a significant amount of time when they let the local arena timekeeper stop and restart the clock.  You can’t tell me that from the time that the announcers noted when the clock stuck at 1:00 (itself a long time from the 1:38 with the face off in the Caps end) and then then announced it was running at 52 sec was way more than 8 seconds of play.  I’m just glad that the Caps won anyway, as I think there would have been significant controversy over the timekeeping if Vegas had scored at the end of the game.
