This was the first year since 1996 that both the Bulls and Blackhawks advanced past the first round. With the NHL lockout, the playoffs will end later than normal. The Bulls won a game seven on the road shorthanded, and the Blackhawks have a very good team that just came back from being down 3-1 to the Red Wings. Why this is a shock to anyone, I have no clue. It also doesn't help they introduced the Cross Town Cup for the Cubs-Sox series, making the games even a bigger embarrassment.
I want the White Sox to win, but in my > 30 days, I don't get emotionally involved in sports like I used to. I watch sports for entertainment purposes. The Sox are hardly fun to watch. It's one thing to lose when you are out pitched or out hit. But, when you play like clowns, it's not exactly good TV. My life goes on as is whether they win or lose.
