A history lesson

Sometimes history is just downright weird.

For instance: Has it occurred to anyone north of age 55 that you've seen this Stanley Cup finals before, only on a baseball diamond?

Goals scored so far in the series, which is tied 3-3 and going to Game 7: Boston 19, Vancouver 8.

Runs scored in the 1960 World Series: Yankees 55, Pirates 27.

Final result of 1960 World Series: Pirates win, 4 games to 3, on Bill Mazeroski's walk-off home run in Game 7.

Final result of 2011 Stanley Cup finals ...

Well. If Bill Mazeroski scores the winning goal in overtime in Game 7 for Vancouver, don't say I didn't warn you.
