In a time long ago and a place not so far away the legend of Ohio State made a reference that sticks in the minds of all Columbusians. He referred to “that team up north” and mostly in a derogatory manner. That stigmatism just naturally [for me] falls over to all teams “up north”, the Tigers, Pistons, Lions and of course the Red Wings. So it was with no remorse that I watched the Lightning zap the Wings and knock them out of the playoffs.
After watching the Pens/Rangers series as kinda a Hate/hate fan perspective, and I’m not sure which teams gets the capital “H” but at least I could root for the “Bolts” and feel good about —“that team from up north goes down”
But round #1 of the cup finals is over, another tick on the summer clock.
