I am going to deviate from Football a little bit to talk about some Hockey. For those unaware, the National Hockey League championship is being played right now between Boston and Vancouver. The championship trophy is the Stanley Cup. Currently Vancouver is up three games to two in the series. With one more victory they will clinch the cup and continue an interesting trend involving Canadian cities that host Olympic games.
in 1976 Montreal hosted the Summer Olympics, the first ever Olympics to be held in Canada. In 1977 the Montreal Canadiens of the NHL won the Stanley Cup. In 1988 Calgary hosted the Winter Olympics and in 1989 the Calgary Flames won the Stanley Cup. The 2010 Winter Olympics were held in Vancouver and now Vancouver is in position to win the 2011Stanley Cup. . . . . Very interesting.
