  1. The Bolts should be Edmonton by now. They left Toronto several hours ago where their opponent will be decided later this evening.
  2. I'm sure other chains have this, but I have the Publix app on my phone. I can create a list and the app will tell me what isle the item on the list will be in the store I have selected to shop at. It's really convenient. However, with all the distancing regulations, I had to take into account the directional guidance marked on the floor of the store so I had to map out my visits. Odd isles one way, even isle the other. People getting all freaked out if you accidentally went the wrong way. I had not been to Publix in about 3 weeks and went to the store in Oldsmar the other day after work to pick up some fresh veggies and a few goods I cannot get online. While the distancing markers were still at the registers, they had removed the all of the directional markers from the floor. I almost did not know how to get around the place. 🤪
  3. I was taking a Python data analysis course this afternoon on YouTube and it included Covid data analysis as part of a data modeling example. 🙃
  4. With Vancouver getting eliminated, it has now been 9 years since a Canadian team has appeared in a Stanley Cup Final, 27 years since a Canadian team has won a Stanley Cup. Vancouver was the last to make it to the finals. In 2011 they had a 3 games to 2 lead over Boston, but lost game six, 5-2, and were shut out by Boston, 4-0, in Game 7. In 1993, the Canadian's 4 games to 1 win over LA ended, not only Canada's dominance of the NHL, but Montreal's as well. Of the first 79 Stanley Cups awarded, Canadian clubs won 59 of them, with Montreal winning 34 of those 59.
  5. 3 seed Dallas vs the number 1 seed Vegas. The series starts Sunday night in Edmonton.
  6. Golden Knights 3 Canucks 0 Vancouver and Vegas play 2 period and 53 minutes and 51 second of scoreless hockey, then with 6:09 to go in the game, the Knights posted 3 goals to advance to the Western Conference Finals. Vegas wins the series 4-3.
  7. Stars 5 Avalanche 4 OT Joel Kiviranta scored a game tying goal in the second and again in the third that sent the game into overtime. He complete his hat trick 7:24 into the extra period to finish off Colorado. Dallas wins the series 4-3.
  8. While the Lightning wait for their opponent, Nikita Kucherov is recovering from a stick to the face incurred during the first period of game 5 of the Boston series. He skated with the team today, but no commitment was made to whether he would be available for game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. Team captain, Steven Stamkos, has not skated in over a month. It looks like the Bolts will have to make the Stanley Cup Finals before #91 could possibly be available.
  9. Canucks 4 Golden Knights 0 Vancouver shuts out Vegas to tie the series 3-3 and send it to a winner take all game 7.
  10. Flyers 5 Islanders 4 2OT Ivan Provorov scored with 4:57 left in the second overtime to force a game 7. The series is tied 3-3.
  11. Avalanche 4 Stars 1 We have our first game 7 coming. The series is tied 3-3.
  12. I pass my electronic tickets to other people all of the time, Bolts and Bulls. The receiver has to have the ticket app, but they can be passed. @TheDeuce, I would assume Louisville is also having automated entry as well. You have to have the ticket on your phone and the readers will not manned. There will be security people watching at a distance, but nobody physically scanning your phone.
  13. I don't know how UofL is doing it, but USF cancelled all season tickets for this season giving the holders the options Louisville did. The student section is still being set aside for students, with limited access. However, the games that they are allowing fans to attend will all be single ticketed. Season ticket holders will get to purchase tickets first, by priority points, selecting from the seats available. If anything is left, those tickets go on sale to the general public.
  14. I am so used to wearing a mask, now, I forgot to take it off until I got home from work last night. How messed up is that?
  15. 20% capacity, too. No tailgating allowed, either. Electronic ticketing with student, faculty, or staff ID required for entry.
  16. Canucks 2 Golden Knights 1 Vancouver forces a game 6. Vegas leads the series 3-2..
  17. Flyers 4 Islanders 3 OT It took OT, but Philadelphia lives to play another day. New York leads the series 3-2.
  18. Avalanche 6 Stars 3 Colorado stays alive. Dallas leads the series 3-2.
  19. For what it is worth, I credited my tickets over to next season. If all goes back to normal, the Gators are coming to Ray Jay in 2021.
  20. As part of an open letter posted on the USF website about the status of athletics at the university, the Vice President of Athletics, Micheal Kelly announced that no fans will be allowed to attend the season opener against The Citadel at Raymond James Stadium. Season ticket holders have been given the option to credit their season tickets to next year, donate the amount paid to the Bulls Club Athletic Fund, or receive a refund. Single game tickets will be made available for purchase for the conference games, the first on October 10 against ECU. Season ticket holders will get first dibs based on priority points. Any remaining tickets will be made available to the general public. No number of seats available for purchase has been set, but I can't imagine it being very many. It seems like a waste to open and light up Ray Jay for The Citadel game. Why not make sure the kickoff is at 1 or 2 pm and play it on a practice field or in the soccer stadium on campus? There is nothing like an empty NFL stadium to make you feel right at home. https://gousfbulls.com/news/2020/8/27/general-michael-kelly-open-letter-8-27-20.aspx
  21. Lightning 3 Bruins 2 2OT After trading goals in the 2nd and 3rd periods and playing though one overtime period, Victor Hedman took 3 shots with less than 6 minutes left in the 2nd overtime, the last getting though for the game winner. Tampa Bay wins the series 4-1.
  22. Golden Knights 5 Canucks 3 Vegas leads the series 3-1
  23. Islanders 3 Flyers 2 New York leads the series 3-1.
  24. Stars 5 Avalanche 4 Dallas leads the series 3-1.
