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.
