    Default "No time for losers..."

    Anyone else notice what kind of year it's been in sports?

    Super Bowl champions: Pittsburgh Steelers (6 wins - more than any other team)
    NBA champions: Los Angeles Lakers (15th championship - second only to the Celtics who have 17)
    MLB champions: New York Yankees (27 championships, most in baseball)
    NASCAR Sprint Cup: Jimmie Johnson (Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt have the most championships with 7, but Johnson wins 4th championship, first driver to win 4 consecutive championships. And if to top it off in NASCAR, Ron Hornaday won his 4th Truck Series championship, which is the most in that series)

    not a good year to bet on the underdogs!

    I was reading about this in Vegas too. I guess the sports books are taking a major hit this year with NFL favorites covering every week.

    The Red Wings bucked the trend this year. Ooh. Sorry. Too much hockey talk. I want to avoid the slings and arrows of the Tiger Woods thread.

    technically, I think it's the Canadiens that truly bucked the trend for the NHL!

    That is what I was thinking when I read your post. The Canadiens were due to win a cup years ago. They are average at best this year.
    Right Now you're reading my post!
