Ok. Being a long time Flyers fan (living in Ga) anyone can understand my hatred for the Wings. If you dont know why, no need to read any further. I am, however rooting for the Wings this year for two reasons.

1. Marian Hossa.
He screwed around here in Atlanta and did nothing for the team. Half a$$ed it, if you will.
2. Vladimir Konstantinov. When the wings win hoist the Cup this year, I can only hope to see a smiling Vladdie waiting for his turn with to be on the ice with the greatest trophy ever.

I hate the Wings with all of my being, but I love to see great sports moments. This is hands down one of the great ones.

Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. Just listening to that made my skin crawl.

I hope the Pens wipe the ice with some Dead Wing jerseys.

If you need to know why I hate the wings, it's because I bleed blue.

I will give woot props for putting the NHL on the cast, though.

Apart from the Lions, Detroit has some great sports teams, and the Wings are certainly at the top of an impressive list.

But at the end of the day, it's still Detroit...

Remember back in the early '90s when everyone would chant "1940" to remind the Rangers they hadn't won the cup since then? Maybe the Red Wings fans should start chanting "1992."

Oh, and my two favorite hockey teams... Detriot and Pittsburgh. Alas.

Obviously another Red Wings fan showing the level of intelligence expected from their fans. Just listen to the jumbo-tron, cheer when you are expected to, and make sure to leave seats empty for playoff games.

Can you inform us how big of a Tigers fan you have been over the last few years, on a scale of 1-10, probably an 8 or 9? Whats your level of fan-dom for them now, 1 maybe a 2?

Stay up in Michigan, and keep your uninformed opinions to yourself. The rest of us will root for the Penguins! And Gary Roberts (hopefully free of the flu).

Jerome Bettis is from Detroit. He is a class act. You should take some lessons from him.

For all the Detroit bashing, Pittsburgh isnt the greatest looking city either. You guys have your crime, poverty and stinky steel mills too. And all of those steel and tooling companies are being outsourced to China, just like Detroit's industries.

As a Detroit suburbanite, yes it is bad. But the city really has nothing to do with the quality of our sports team or the intelligence of our sports fans (though yes, there are a lot of dumb ones)

On a related to note to all of this. The amount of responses, regardless of the nature or which team they support, show that there are a lot of hockey fans around. I just hope that after next year ESPN will pick up the NHL again, I get a little tired of only seeing the Rangers, Red Wings, and Penguins on Versus.

The Blackhawks were a great story this year, but almost no one knew about them. It could be Sakic's last year, and that was overlooked as well. Hopefully a good Finals will help get the NHL the credit its due.

penguins in 5? that's a stupid prediction... that would require the wings losing 3 games at home. it'd take all 7 for the pens to have the smallest chance.

on another note: GO WINGS!!!

Pens return to the finals after 16 years, I have been an avid supporter of Penguins Hockey for many years and it really grieves me to listen to you neandrathals throwing your barbs back and forth. The best team will emerge victorious and the Stanley Cup will be where it belongs at last. Back in Pittsburgh!!! Pass The CUP Please

Dude you have a weak arguement:

1. Your going to claim the tigers are moving up?? PAAAaaaAAaaaanCAAAAAKES!?!?! THEY ARE IN LAST PLACE IN THE AL CENTRAL. OH yea and how much money did they spend on their team...138 Million! That is SECOND to the Yankees.
2. I-robot was a decent movie at best. Here are some movies filmed in Pittsburgh...Silence of the Lambs, Kingpin, and Groundhog day.

I could go on but im pretty sure you get my point....

I repeat: The podcast team is not based in Texas. Only one member of the podcast team has ever even set foot in Texas -- that was me, when I had a short layover at the DFW airport on my way somewhere else. It was pleasant enough (nice selection of magazines at the newsstand, plenty of seating), but not the sort of experience that makes someone change a lifelong allegiance to his home sports team.

Amazing, so glad I tuned in today to see the best Wootcast ever! I'm hoping in about a couple weeks after the Wings dispose of the Penguins (great team but too young, wait till next year to begin your dynasty) we'll be graced by the new greatest Wootcast ever.

AhHa! So the podcast team is to blame! - Grab the torches! - Grab the pitchforks!
and make a really big Grilled WootCheese Sandwich! print it on a shirt and sell it... wait... crud... they already did that last Thursday. - Fine then, I concede - Go Red Wings!

From my limited knowledge, the rest of woot is based in St. Louis. Would that mean that based in a city with the Blues, you would choose the Red Wings?
