Sports?



  • Surreal feeling in Toronto tonight since we made it to the NBA Finals for the first time ever. THOUSANDS flooded the streets for hours before the game even started. Now it’s an endless party. Horns honking, people cheering. Toronto is just one city but the whole entirety of the GTA (Greater Toronto Area, multiple cities with millions of people) is celebrating. You physically can’t even drive right now. Thousands at the arena but tens of thousands across multiple cities freaking out about the win. It’s unreal.

    To top it all off, I made $330 betting on this game. I can’t believe I’m saying this but GO RAPTORS



  • Marko "MÖRKÖ" Anttila! Kevin Lankinen! Jukka Jalonen the God Tier Coach! What an intense game. Holy shit, the third time ever for us! And with what a team, nobody expected this from this "nameless" team this year. Amazing. These last three games especially.

  • @sentinel-beach Additional good news: Vancouver was not destroyed following the loss.



  • @dipset So insane they made it. It's kind of bitter sweet as it always felt like Derozan gave it all for Toronto but I guess the painful truth is they just weren't good enough with him. I would love to see the Warriors fall and if it could be at the same time as the Raptors winning their first title, all the better.



  • @sentinel-beach

    Congrats lads. I could only catch the 2nd period unfortunately.

    DeRozan gave it his all in Toronto but it just didn't work out. It was the same when the Jays went all out getting David Price and Josh Donaldson to join Bautista to win a World Series. Close but no cigar. Its no love lost but Raps had to let him go. I wasn't even mad when VC left eons ago but Toronto was never the same since.



  • Champions League final today. Feels like all the pressure is on Liverpool so I'm a little bit worried that will show but at the same time I am hopeful they will win.



  • @tokeeffe9 super excited, I honestly have no horse in the race anymore and would love to see either take it, after the incredible games there's been so far this season I hope this one doesn't disspoint.



  • Tottenham winning Champions League would just be the weirdest



  • Well halftime at the moment and I think both teams needed it really. Liverpool 1 up from an early penalty and have had some chances but the quality overall hasn't been great. Probably down to the absence of a competitive match for nearly 3 weeks now for both teams.

    Hoping Liverpool can raise it a few gears.



  • That ended up being a dissapointing game, but oh well very happy to see Klopp finally win the UCL



  • Couldn't catch the last few games of the finals but Game 4 of Blues/Bruins was a treat. Still hoping the Blues win at the end of the day.

    Congrats to the St. Louis Blues, watching them absolutely destroy Boston in Game 7 was a delight. Binnington is definitely one to keep an eye on in the future.



  • @hanabi being from Vancouver, it was good to see Boston get pumped at home in game 7...but then they didn't burn their city down so I guess we still lose.

    Major congrats to the Blues and their fans. 52 years.



  • TORONTO IS LIT!!

    WE’RE GOING NUTS RIGHT NOW 6 MILLION PLUS MARCHING, HONKING, AND PARTYING!!

    RAPTORS DID IT!!! FIRST WIN IN HISTORY!!

    Not for nothing but since round 3, I’ve won $800+ because of the Raptors and I also won $140 on St Louis winning the Stanley Cup.

    Life is GOOOOOD!

    GO RAPS GO!! NBA CHAMPS!! You have NO IDEA how nuts it is here.



  • Very happy to see the Raptors take it, but specially not seeing the Warriors take it again.

    And I'm so surprised the NHL final happens at the same time, as the NBA Finals, that seems pretty dumb to me.



  • @bard91

    The seasons overlap so it’s hard to watch both sports but at least the Stanley Cup and the NBA Finals happen on different days.



  • Has anyone been watching Women's World Cup? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_FIFA_Women's_World_Cup

    I've noticed that I started to get more invested during the Round of 16. Today begin the quarter-finals, only eight remain.
    Norway - England
    France - USA
    Italy - Netherlands
    Germany - Sweden

    Tomorrow's FRA/USA could very well have been even the final of this tournament, should be a great match.



  • @sentinel-beach I have not been actually watching but have been keeping up. It sucks to see Canada AND Japan get knocked out 1 day apart, our house officially has no horse in the race. But what a save by that Swedish keeper on that penalty. It was obviously stoppable but not a bad penalty by any means, incredible stop. Too many times we see plays like that get wasted by a later goal caused by poor defending so it was good to see her efforts be rewarded.

    It would be good to see anybody but the US win and not just because my passport mandates that I route against them in all sports but because it would be good for the game to get a new power in. I think I'll maybe pick up the Netherlands in hopes that that country can finally get its first World Cup.
