Philadelphia plays Boston tonight in the Eastern Conference semi-finals, having been the only team since the 1975 Islanders to come back from a 3-0 deficit. An Eastern Conference fan has a request for the Supreme Being:
I know You probably don’t care about anything as trivial as hockey, but if You do please let an Eastern Conference Team win the Cup. I know in Your infinite wisdom You also can’t stand that little showboating worm Patrick Kane, and well, no God in Their right mind would support the Sharks… Besides, do You really want to take responsibility for another cheesy California town to behold Your beloved Cup? (You let Anaheim slip by, but You were more than likely busy with an earthquake or volcano…). Personally, I don’t have a dog in the fight now that the Wings and Sabres are out, but I promise to be good and say nice things (except to Hawks and Sharks fans) for the next year if You only hear my wishes.
