A “Notes Menu”

June 14, 2018

Two today, one from “column” WNBA dogs do “bark” outright and one from “column” esoteric, winter sports first letters, also “columns” a and b.

In the WNBA yesterday, a Las Vegas team, the Aces won outright at the New York Liberty, paying off at 5.25 to 1. The Aces moved to the Las Vegas area this season after incarnations in Utah and more recently San Antonio. Their coach Bill Laimbeer won vs the team he coached for 5 seasons yesterday.

The Washington Mystics were also a huge underdog and paid off at 4.50 to 1, winning outright at the now (7-2) Connecticut Sun.

That parlay, certainly not mine, paid nearly 35 to 1!

This year marked just the second time that the first letter of the city/area of the NHL champion matched that of the first letter of the NBA champion’s team nickname. (“W”ashington/”W”arriors).

The only other time that occurred was in 1961, when the “C”hicago Blackhawks won the NHL crown and the “C”eltics of Boston won their third straight title and fourth in 5 seasons.

 

Rudy guided Chicago to the ’61 title, dispatching the great 5 time champion, Montreal Canadiens in the semis and then “6 ing” the Detroit Red Wings in the Final Series.

At the time the team spelling was Black Hawks since changed to Blackhawks.
