Metta World Peace doesn't care for your Stanley Cup superstition.

As a Canadian, it is obligatory to love Hockey more than anything in the world. We live in this culture where Hockey is the only sport that everyone has to watch, and if you are anything less than a fan, you will get a shit storm of criticism. The worst part of it is that during the Hockey season, nobody and I mean absolutely nobody, talks about anything else. Switch on Sportscenter on TSN (Canadian ESPN), where you are suppose to get 90 minutes of coverage on all active sports, but nope, you get more like a 60 minute hockey show show with highlights from other sports.

I am a victim of this society, as a "rare" hockey watcher, I struggle to find other conversation topics with strangers and often than not, get looks of disappointment. You know the one that you get when you are in trouble with your parents, Yea, that one. With that very cool story told, I do know that there is one superstition in hockey that nobody ever dares to disprove and today Metta World Peace just showed a disregard for all of the hopes Laker fans have for their team.

For those who still don't get it, you are probably American, but that is okay, I love you too. It is an unwritten rule made by hockey players to never touch the Cup unless you have earned it. So that's about it for this Lakers's season, just like that almond, MWP just crushed it all up and swallowed it. At least we know who to blame now if another banner doesn't hang in the rafters of the Staples Center by end of June.

FYI, our beloved Steve Nash didn't even look at the cup, he knows he don't got no time left in his career to be messing with some ancient sport superstition.
