The Washington Capitals finally got their cup. That means that Alex Ovechkin lifted the Stanley Cup. A trophy he’s been chasing and one most people thought he’d lifted many, many years earlier. Bottom line, Ovechkin became part of a team that was able to get over the hump (the Eastern Conference Semi’s). Once that was complete, the rest was almost a inevitable.
Heck, even the rivals gave a tip of the cap.
Baseball and then Baseball
Did this just happen? Yep. Not exactly something that Major League Baseball want’s fans to see.
This on the other hand is what Major League Baseball does want you to see.
The Golden State Warriors dynasty run continues. A sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers. While game four was of course the official end, game three was the dagger and it was delivered by on Kevin Durant.
Watch the whole thing. It’s an impressive feat. A clear example of never, ever giving up. Even when the odds look impossible.
