So how does it feel to see Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins win back to back titles for the first time since Steve Yzerman and the Red Wings?
It makes me want to throw up a little bit, but then I remember in my lifetime the teams that I support have:
Red Wings - 6 Stanley Cup Finals Appearances, 4 Stanley Cup Wins
Tigers - 2 AL Pennants, 4 Division Titles, 2 World Series Appearances
Pistons - 3 NBA Championships, 6 Straight Conference Finals
Spartan Hockey - National Championship
Spartan Basketball - National Championship, 8 Big Ten Titles
Spartan Football - 3 Big Ten Titles, College Football Playoff Appearance
I’d say that’s pretty solid for my existence so far. Just need the Lions to give me something to be proud of in the next 70 years or so.
Also, some of the guys who have more cups than Crosby include: Kris Draper, Nick Lidstrom, Kirk Maltby, Darren McCarty, Tomas Holmstrom…Should I keep going?
