Lets Go Senators Lets Go!

The Ottawa Senators, champions of the Eastern Conference square off against the Anaheim Ducks, the Western Conference winners, for the right to hoist the Stanley Cup.

"Lets Go Senators, Lets Go!"

As Game 4 is being played in the battle for the "Stanley Cup", I listen to they guys in my house cheer and sneer....getting an idea of what is happening in the game and how well each team is playing. Secretly it entices me enough to bravely enter where only the brave with go.......to take a seat in the living room amongst the testosterone levels that are rising minute by minute....... just to see what is happening in this all important game.

With 8 minutes left in the 2nd Period the score is 2 to 1 Anaheim...needless to say the guys in my house are not happy....Not at all.

It is interesting to listen to these guys cheer and gear from the couch.....it almost seems that they think the more they yell at the t.v. the better the players will hear them

The cheers are rising now as Ottawa scores to tie the game with 9 seconds left in the period......from what I understand this is something that the Senators are well known to do.....at least in his opinion.

If the Senators pull off a win tonight they are going to have to work hard for but it will be well deserved.

Although I don't know a whole lot about hockey, I do that the Spirit of Hockey is alive and well in Canada. The fans pack the stadium's at each game and the cheering is amazing. The come wearing the jersey of their favorite player, some paint their faces, some even dye their hair in their teams colors and the less adventurous wear wigs. Our fans are known to drown out the person singing our National Anthem.....Oh Canada.......just another way to show our pride for our country and our athletes. No matter how you put it Canada has some of the best fans in the world.

The battle is all about this silver cup known as the "STANLEY CUP" and the right to hoist it in Victory. The winning team gains bragging rights as the best in the league until the battle begins all over again next year.

The Stanley Cup notably the oldest trophy competed for by professional athletes in North America, was donated in 1892 by Sir Fredrick Arthur Stanley, Lord Stanley of Preston and son of the Earl of Derby. He purchased the trophy for 10 Guineas ($50.00 at that time) to be presented to "the championship hockey club of the Dominion of Canada." The first team ever awarded the Stanley Cup was the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association in 1893.

The Stanley Cup originated in Canada.......Lets keep it in Canada

"Lets Go Senators, Lets Go!"
