Good morning! Shall we get it?

First up, congratulations to the St. Louis Blues for capturing their first Stanley Cup in franchise history and simultaneously ensuring that the Toronto Maple Leafs stand alone as the only team to have not won a cup in over 50 years. Love it.

Noted Tim Horton’s fan Ryan O’Reilly earned the plaudits after an excellent playoff run that saw him net 8-15-23 in 26GP en route to his first Conn Smythe trophy.

The NBA Finals resume tonight with game six slated to start just after 7PM MST. #RapsInFour

And, the Oilers with some astute business yesterday, retaining the services of Bakersfield Condors head coach Jay Woodcroft for the next three years. The first-year bench boss was by all accounts a very positive influence in California.

Have a great one.
