I don't normally follow basketball but being that the one and only Canadian team is playing for the trophy, tonights game could take it. The Raptors are up 3 games to 1, out of 7. They are playing San Fran. This could be the first time the trophy ends up out of the USA. We will trade to get our Stanley Cup back........

I'm not a basketball fan but "Go, Raptors, GO!"
I just think of the Stanley Cup as the unofficial Canadian Ambassador of Good Will. If the damn thing gets any bigger, it's gonna need its own set of skates.

Bob, " The Golden State Warriors are an American professional basketball team based in Oakland, California. The Warriors compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division"

Now Oakland aint that far from San Francisco. But telling someone in Oakland that the Warriors are from San Francisco, is a real insult :)

Well Oakland is part of the San Fran Bay area so close enough indeed. Does anyone ever admit to living in Oakland?

Yeah, they are from San Francisco, just happen to play their home games at the Oracle in Oakland, and that will end this year.
Just like the NFL team NY Jets play their home games across the river in the Newark, NJ area, but they are still a NY team.

I thought the game was being played in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories as that was the only place they could find an igloo big enough for a basketball contest. scratch

I.chose to live in Oakland versus San Francisco when I first got to the Bay area in 72. I hate San Francisco and th elacl of trees, the cement everywhere.. The climate in Oakand is wonderful and there are trees. The Oakland hills are really nice and I like the Spanish style houses from the 20´s and 30´s..

We moved to San Francisco from other places in the Bay area in 85.. At that point I had gotten used to it and we could afford a nice place but still I liked Oakaland and I worked on that side of the Bay for a while.

Went to High School in Atherton (north of Palo Alto) and we always thought there was a big difference between San Francisco and Oakland.

Yes Atherton is where my boss Sam Bronfman lived and I was offered a part time teaching job there that paid peanut but I would have had the pleasure to teach the kids of the rich in a very nice setting... I turned the job down for a minimum wage job in Oakland.

The Prep school I attended was just West of Menlo Park in Atherton. In those days it was called Menlo School Boys. It is just south of Menlo College and north of Valparaiso Ave.

I was from Seattle and lived on campus. My parents lived in Seattle and sent me away to this great prep school. I thought my parents were well to do, but compared to the rest of the campus, I must have been the poorest kid there. All the other kids came from such wealthy families. I really felt out of place.

Great game tonight and the Warriors are still in the game! Those last couple minute 3 pointers by Steph Curry were excellent:-)
