Weekend in Review

19 04 2010

There was a whole lotta TV on this weekend…for any kind of TV watcher. Lots of sports, lots of awards shows, SNL comedy, Donald Trump trainwrecks…everything!

Here is a little recap…I’ll try to be brief!

Current NHL PLayoff races:
OTT vs PITT – Sid the Kid is the MAN… PITT leads 2-1
MTL vs WAS – Ovechkin isnt really a factor, tied 1-1
PHI vs NJ- Brodeur cant score goals, PHI leads 2-1
BOS vs BUF – an even match, tied 1-1
PHX vs DET, the darkhorse is sticking around! PHX leads 2-1
VAN vs LA, Louuuuuuuuu! series tied 1-1
SJ vs COL, another shocker, COL leads 2-1
NSH vs CHI, young guns starting to heat up, tied 1-1

The Junos:
hosted by “the heart of the world” (bit of a stretch…) St Johns Newfoundland. And Stars were given an “out” with the Iceland Ash debacle…so there were a few no-shows. But the important people were there: Bieber, Drake, Buble…and good thing too…because Michael Buble was the star of the show, cleaning up the awards!
