Xanadu For A Lightning Bolt

If you heard whoops and hollers from my neck of the woods last night – there was a good reason why. For only the third time in area history, a major sporting championship was won by a local team – this time, the Lightning winning the Stanley Cup.

In September. At the neutral of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – thanks to our pal COVID.

The 2-0 win was appropriately numbered – it was the second time the Lightning had won the Stanley Cup, going with the championship won 16 years ago. As for the Buccaneers and Rays, they now have some catching up to do.

The Rays went 40-20 in the shortened regular season, which would pro-rate to 108-54 if they had played a full 162 games. The playoffs are a sprint, not a marathon – so who knows how and if they get tripped up in baseball’s bizarro season.

The Bucs have started 2-1 in 2020, so far unfettered by COVID.

It’d be a trip if the Lightning, Bucs, and Rays all won championships within a few months of each other – though I’d think the rest of the country would be sick of us by then.
