On another note, Nicklas Backstrom is amazingly good.
Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.
So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!
Every year, since 2002 I've been able to pick one of the teams in the superbowl. 03 I had the Pats, 04 I had the eagles, 05 I had the Steelers and in 06 I picked the Colts to win after their first playoff win.
I'm picking San Diego because I believe they lost last year due to some inexperience and a lack of killer instinct I think that after such a big year and the team staying relatively in tact not to mention Rivers getting another year in the system they'll be tough to stop.
I'm picking Carolina partially because I'm a homer but also because the team had the 7th ranked defense despite having no cornerbacks or middle linebacker for most of the year and an inept offense.
I think that the combination of a defense that will be top 5 ceteris parabis and an offense that will improve with schemes tailored for the running backs we have, coupled with Steve Smith and Johnson having another year with Delhomme will give us the fire power.
Who would win in that matchup would be interesting, the Panthers Defense is built to stop running backs like LaDanian Tomlinson and the Chargers secondary has been lacking and might have some trouble against our receivers. Then Again carolina has struggled against tight ends in recent years. It'd be a great game anyway.
