I've yet to run into anyone who is watching the Stanley Cup Finals. Even my next door neighbor, Rick, a devoted NHL fan has been quiet about this one. Ratings are in the tank. It's a rough time of year. NHL, World Cup, baseball and golf are all center stage. No wonder the late great Nat King Cole called it "those lazy hazy crazy days of summer". He must been bored like we are.
