It's about time a thread was submitted!
I kept looking, but wouldn't submit myself because you know how some of yinz can be ;-p

Heavy rain/thunderstorms are again holding us back from the big screen, they'll take it down if it gets bad. And it's pretty cool that now instead of being right at PPG Place it's now in the more spacious parking lot of now gone Igloo.
Bernie Sanders' rally at 5 in Schenley Plaza will most likely get rained out.

So for the love of all that is holy, please, GO PENS!!

We're supposed to get nailed around noon & as you guys seem to be 5-6 hours behind our weather pattern ... yeah, you don't want to be standing outside tonight...

It's lightly raining here right now, will be most of the day, but yeah the big booms should be later on.
I can't begrudge who anyone roots for in the playoffs, at least not this early on ;)

I think (and thank) the Admins have been (for) waiting until there are multiple options lately, more the better and all that. This one was in the cue a little after 9, there wasn't another until a little after 10. Everyone must have been sleeping in today, because there were none earlier than that. Weekday threads typically have submissions between 7 and maybe as late as 9 with one being picked by 9:30 or so, recently. There had been submissions in the past before the last game of the previous night was even over, that's the kind of stuff that was getting a few of us annoyed. But please, all of you, submit a h/l if you're inspired to. We get better headlines with more submissions for the Admins to pick from.

Is there an online bracket which shows the win/loss count in the bracket?  I can't seem to find an easy to read one.

Oh, today looks to be a wild ride.  I'm not predicting anything as I'll be wrong.

In other news, Spokane took out Everett last night to move forward to the Western Conference final in the WHL.  I'm not sure how I feel about that.  I moved last summer from Spokane to just south of Everett.  I've worked with Spokane on and off for 10+ years.  I'm glad to see them succeed.  BUT, after taking this year off, I engage with Everett next year.  It's tough to see your new team lose.

Oh, and in further drama, it appears Colorado is so desperate for decent defense, they just dropped a 3 year contract on a college kid so they can throw him in the next game:

Yeah, I found that one but it doesn't easily show the win/loss totals without scrolling a lot.  I'm just looking for something quick to look at like the NBA one on ESPN:

I could understand it if they were trying to avoid overlap, but they scheduled two prime time games; Bolts/Blue Jackets at 7:00 and Jets/Blues at 7:30.  Were they trying to minimize audience loss to the last round of The Masters (if so, the schedule change due to the weather forecast put paid to that plan)?  They're definitely not scheduling around the "Game of Thrones" premiere.
