    I thought this deserved its own thread.

    I plan on working up some Sportsbook bets today for those interested once the East is decided tonight.

    Pretty cool for preds to be in but even cooler to see the greatest sports stars of every sport always winning championships or making it to the finals.

    Soccer- Cristiano Ronaldo
    Football- Tom Brady
    Hockey- Sidney Crosby
    Basketball- Lebron James

    It's amazing to have the greatest athletes in every sport each taking their team to championships every year. All GOAT's^

    I'm actually looking forward to a hockey game, crazy. Mariota and the boys being there seals the deal for me. If they can catch the fever then I am too.

    I pretty much ditched the Titans for them. They're much more fun to watch live, if you ever get a chance.

    haha, I'll always be a fan, and watch the games most sundays at the bar, Just not exerting much thought into the process.

    It's more of an indictment on the NFL than the Titans, honestly. The dedication to commercials over content just kills me.

    league knows there's an issue with that tho, see what they do to improve it

    Being more lax on what's a penalty will help the cause a little

    Crosby isn't an All Time Great. he is probably the best of the last decade though.
    Time for the Preds to hopefully make some noise against him! The thing about hockey is that it is a true team game. the best players are only on the ice for half of the game, maximum, and everyone plays offense and defense.

    Really it's more like 1/3 of the game of time on ice for the top lines. The only guys that can really be stars to carry a team all the time are the goalies.

    That being said, Crosby has been to 3 cups, won 2, and may be on his way to a 4th Finals appearance. That's up there with the all time greats and he's still well within his prime. He is a difference maker in that he's so dangerous any time he's on the ice.

    He does have a great cast around him though. Malkin, Hornqvist, and Kessel are all very talented, and having Murray back in the crease is a boost to them as well.
