Blog Photo - Game On! Sports Lineup 6/8/13Hello everyone. Jess is out for the weekend, so I'm filling in with today's live sports thread. The main course for the day is Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. The defending Cup winning Kings are down 3-1 and must win to stay alive. If not, it'll be the Blackhawks advanced to face the Bruins for the Cup. We also have plenty of baseball, some ongoing tennis, racing (both automobile and equine), and golf. My personal picks for the day are in bold.

My son had a headache, so we left about a third of the way thru the second OT period.  Half way home I got a twitter alert on my phone, my fellow Flames fan had tweeted me that the Kings had lost sad

I guess I am cheering for Boston, just for my dad.  He would be ecstatic.

Awww.  I wanted to only have to give the stinkeye to one team in the Stanley Cup finals.  Now I just want to give them both the stinkeye.

I should have done the same with the hockey game.

And KWare is off his crutches and taking jump shots.

The Blue Jays won in 18 innings, and now the Marlins and Mets are playing the 20th inning. Yes, 20th.
