Kelly Cup Finals: It’s Idaho versus …

… to be announced. Still.

The Idaho Steelheads defeated the Stockton Thunder, 7-5, to win the best-of-seven National Conference Finals four games to two. The top-seeded Steelheads will make their third Kelly Cup Finals appearance, having won in their two previous trips (2004 and 2007).

Not long ago, it seemed a foregone conclusion that Idaho would play the Reading Royals, after the Royals took a three games to none lead in the American Conference finals. But the Cincinnati Cyclones won their third straight game while facing elimination, 6-3 on Tuesday against the visiting Royals.

Game 7 is tomorrow night in Cincinnati.

Feel free to chime in here if you watched either game online.

  • I really like the colors here on your blog. did you design this yourself or did you outsource it to a professional?

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.. 🙂
