This weekend they aired a show on NHL TV that highlighted the New York Rangers Stanley Cup Championship in 1994. At that time, the Rangers hadn’t won a championship in 54 years. They celebrated like the world was coming to an end.
Today, we’re going to try and dig up some videos of some long-awaited championship celebrations. Whether you’re a fan of the team or not it’s pretty incredible and a special moment for the fans.

Aside from some of the great off-the-field moments this list couldn’t adequately address some of the brilliant goals that were scored this season. Bale, van Persie, Luiz, etc. etc. etc. There were a ton of great goals this year. Great season.

Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks started organized team activities Monday with little talk about anything that took place on the field. That was understandable considering the recent news about suspensions and arrests. “It’s a very important opportunity for us to go ahead and figure it out and to help these guys so they can get what they deserve,” Carroll said. “Unfortunately, you go wrong, you get popped, and that’s how this thing works. I’m really disappointed we have to deal with anything like this, but there (are) going to be other issues too, and we’re going to have to deal with them.” [USAToday]
Define Irony…Pete Carroll is trying to figure out why players keep getting ‘popped’. Pete Carroll, himself, would have gotten ‘popped’ if he didn’t bail on USC before the hammer came down. Trying to figure out why NFL players keep getting in trouble with the law or with steroids is like trying to figure out why teenage boys masturbate to porn. With that said, Carroll will have a better chance of trying to get teenage boys to stop masturbating to porn before he can stop NFL arrests, etc. YAWN!
I came across this photo of Bill Belichick in Little League this weekend and decided it was a must that we find some professional athletes when they were in Little League for this mornings post.
We’ll play a little game today: See if you can find Blake Griffin, Jason Heyward, Michelle Wie, David Wright & B.J. Upton, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Matt Stafford & Clayton Kershaw, and more. If you can identify these guys— good for you.

It’s the sexy thing to say these days, but I really think the Pacers will push the Heat to AT LEAST six games. The Pacers are a good team. Not sure the Heat have really been challenged so far so if the Pacers can come out and hit them in the jaw they have a shot. Heat will win though. Lock city

For those of you who didn’t see the news on Friday – Phil Jackson always has been hesitant to compare Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. Until now. In his new book, co-written with Hugh Delehanty and entitled “Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success,” Jackson breaks down what separated Jordan from Bryant, the biggest stars and personalities that he coached during his Hall of Fame career. [ESPN]
Phil Jackson compared Kobe to Michael and, of course, within hours Kobe took to Twitter to defend his position. This lead me to think – how many times this offseason is Kobe going to try and defend himself against Phil’s book. Over/Under – 19.5. I’ll take the OVER.
This snowballed into a series of OVER/UNDERS from this past week in sports. Hit the jump to see them…

The Boston Marathon will be giving those runners who didn’t finish the race an opportunity to finish. Pretty cool move by the Marathon. Unfortunately, we cannot give lives back. Sorry to end the Friday on such a downer. Have a nice weekend folks.

This wraps up our week of inspirational sports movie speeches. To recap it went a little like this:
5.) ‘Rocky Balboa’ – Rocky and his Son
4.) ‘Miracle’ – Herb Brooks’ Pregame Speech
3.) ‘Rudy’ – Rudy and Fortune “5-foot nothin…”
2.) ‘Hoosiers’ – Norman Dale “In my book we’re going to be winners…”
and #1 is Al Pacino’s speech in ‘Any Given Sunday‘. What works against this speech is the movie was pretty much garbage. The speech was brilliant though. It’s a lesson applied anywhere just like the rest of the speeches. For my money there is nothing better than ‘Hoosiers’. Hope you enjoyed it.
