Spain, 2010 World Cup Champions – Possible Championship Posters To Come

July 13, 2010

They were the favorites from the start, but in a single elimination tournament where anything can happen, and normally does, nothing is for sure.  Many teams were in the running to become World Champions; Brazil, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, Uruguay and Ghana to name a few. But after 7 games and only 1 loss, Spain is on the top of the world, they are World Champions.

This was a complete team effort, with a few names really standing out.  The goal scores are always a big part with Carles Puyol scoring to beat the Germans, David Villa nets 4 goals to lead the team and the one who scored when it mattered, Andres Iniesta, with the tournament winning goal.  While all these goals definitely helped bring Spain to the top, it never would have happened without one man, Iker Casillas. Not only did he help lead them to their first World Championship, but he was also named the Goal Keeper of the tournament, which is no small feat.

Blackhawks Decorate Chicago; What’s Up, Philly? Hawks, Flyers Posters Available Here

June 2, 2010

Well, we are finally here. After 82 regular season games, plus 16 and 17 playoff games respectably, the Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers have made it to the big show, the Stanley Cup Finals. Both teams are now in for the fight of their lives, for the greatest achievement in all of Hockey, to hoist Lord Stanleys Cup.

While this is a massively important event for both cities, one has stepped up to the plate more than the other.

Chicago has full on Stanley Cup fever. They have taken 2 of the cities most famous and memorable statues and decked them out in Blackhawks gear. The two statues that I am speaking of are the Michael Jordan in front of the United Center and the Lion in front of the Art Institute of Chicago. These pieces have made nation wide news and a focal point for hockey lovers far and wide.

Michael Jordan adorns a red Toews jersey and a while helmet.

After 2 games, and 2 wins by the Blackhawks, it seems that this publicity stunt may have sparked something. The Flyers seems flat and frustrated, while the Hawks have clearly been the dominant team.

While the lion is wearing a custom made over sized Blackhawks helmet.

With the series now going back to Philly can the high skill level of the Hawks be enough to take complete control of the series? Or will the sea of orange be enough to ignite a flame in the Flyers game. Only time will tell, but from where I am sitting being a Blackhawk is a pretty good thing right about now.
