Thoughts From My Desk May 4th Edition

• I am back from a bye week after college got out for the summer. I also wanted some time to reflect the draft before writing on it (because who wants to hear “WE PASSED UP CURRY?!?!” again?) and will break it down over the summer leading up to the opening kickoff.
• The Red Wings look to regroup after a marathon 4-3 loss in triple overtime to the Ducks Sunday. With the series shifting to Anaheim, the Wings look to down the giant killers before it gets out of hand. Rafalski and Draper may play.
• The Cubs might be putting it together after a sweep of the struggling Marlins. It is just a lot of little things hurting the Cubs now. We are lucky to get the Giants at home for the next three to right the ship.
• I’m not a fan of Ovechkin. I’m less of a fan of Crosby. But I am rooting for Ovie over Syd the Kid in the NHL dream series. Ovechkin is a better player and not a diver (but somewhat of a showboat, I adore Don Cherry) and love to see a 7 game battle. Right now we need to root for the NHL almost as much as anybody.
• As a WMU Broncos fan and a huge Detroit Lions fan, I am pumped to see Safety Louis Delmas play this season after hearing Lions coaches praise his play all during camp. Our first overall pick Matt Stafford will probably start the season on the bench. GM Martin Mayhew said Daunte Culpepper will start the season at Quarterback for the Honolulu Blue and Silver.
