Hey there, time traveller!

Faithful readers of this blog (Hi Mom and Dad!) will recall a little "branching out" I did last year around this time.Rather than be pegged as a one-trick crime pony, I decided to release my inner sports fan and unleash my Stanley Cup playoff picks upon you.By the time the Anaheim Ducks were sipping champagne from the world's greatest trophy in mid-June, yours truly had gone a fairly impressive 13/15 in series predictions (including 8/8 in the first round and calling the Ducks as champs)So, as the puck gets set to drop this week, I figured I'd take another shot at gazing into the crystal ball.As well, folks in the Winnipeg area can look for me on the tube this week as I take part in a roundtable sports-themed discussion on Shaw TV with several panelists, including former Winnipeg Jets broadcaster Curt Keilback.For those of you have have no interest in sports - and come here solely to read about the latest mayhem - my apologies. We'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming in short order.But for the rest of you, let's see what you think about my picks. Feel free to share your own predictions in the comments section below. WESTERN CONFERENCE
