Ducks win! Ducks win! Ducks win!
I became a hockey fan the year the LA Kings were in the Stanley Cup Finals with Wayne Gretzky. The next year was the first year for the Ducks, and being an Orange County guy I made them my team. I remember getting together with friends to watch them win their first playoff series against Phoenix, and then lose what I call the "closest sweep in history" as they went down 4-0 to Detroit, losing three of the games in overtime, two of those in triple overtime if I remember correctly.
I haven't been this excited about a sporting event since October of 1988.
Randy Carlyle has officially made me forget Ron Wilson.
