Hey Steven

20 Jul

Okay, so the spelling isn’t the same.  Who cares?  Our life plan remains intact with Steven Stamkos signing a 5-year, $37.5 million contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning yesterday.

We always knew it would happen.  So did Stammer: “I never even thought of looking anywhere else.” [link]  But we like to have everything signed & sealed before we deliver Gator to the first week of October in her shiny #91 shirt.

Steven’s doing a live chat tomorrow for Nike Training at  http://facebook.com/niketraining.  We’ll be in my office having a sing along.

Stamkos finished last regular season with 45 goals and 91 points (how fitting), playing in every single Lightning game.  And that’s after a rough scoring drought in the spring.  Next year, we predict more trophies for Stammer (shared again with Sidney, of course) and an equally long playoff run (just not against the Pens).  We’ll even take the shiny suit.

Side note: We know Squishy won the Lady Byng (cue horrible Real Housewives flashback).  But only 12 penalty minutes? REALLY?  I get more minutes for unsportsmanlike yelling at the television.

    I was a little worried for a while that the wouldn’t reach a deal but, YAY! they did.

    My best and I are flying to Pittsburgh from Florida in February just to see him. Well, she’s going to see him, I’m going to see my baby daddy, Sid.
