John Cusack Alert
If you see John Cusack in the stands, someone's in the playoffs or world series.
You might recall the Chicago-native in the bleachers of Wrigley Field when the Cubs had a healthy Kerry Wood and Mark Prior and if not for Bartman would have made it further than the playoffs, and then a few years later you may have heard about him wanting to get tickets to see the White Sox as they played in the world series (and was denied).
Recently the Say Anything star has been spotted in Anaheim pulling for the Ducks which means there must be a playoff game going on behind the Orange Curtain.
Indeed. tonight there is a playoff game going on, and if the Ducks win they go to the Stanley Cup Finals. But because the NHL has no respect for West Coast viewers (and really, who can blame them), the puck is dropped tonight at 6pm.
To add insult to injury the game will be televised but not on any channel that you've ever heard of. We won't even tell you what channel it's on. Go to your TiVo and look for it, and when you find it, ask yourself, "the game that could decide the Western Conference Finals is being shown on THAT?"
Keep an eye out for your boy.
