Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 5/8/18

I can't believe this all took place 30 years ago. It's the anniversary of the infamous official's boycott of a playoff game between the Boston Bruins and New Jersey Devils. Two days earlier, following a blowout loss, Devils head coach Jim Schoenfeld went absolutely ballistic in a confrontation with referee Don Koharski. It's still my favorite sound bite ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Monday 5/7/18

Only six teams remain standing, and two more will be getting eliminated shortly. That means one of the all-time amazing stories is still being written as the Vegas Golden Knights will be one of the four survivors as the grueling Stanley Cup playoff chase continues. There's nothing more that can be said about this team. The Knights are making believers ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 5/6/18

The usual weekend condensed blog, with Saturday's results and Sunday's free play. I lost my Derby play on My Boy Jack. Any win bet other than Justify was a bad choice, as there was absolutely no doubt as to the best horse in that field. My guess is that we will get a small Preakness field, as owners might justifiably feel they're simply racing to finish ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 5/5/18

My usual weekend blog format, which is just a previous day recap and the new free play. My Friday went well, with a 3-2 MLB result. All five plays were underdogs, so the net gain for the day was two full units. Season to date is currently +14.5 net and I'm on three games for Saturday as of now. Feel free to email me at cokin@cox.net for details on ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 5/4/18

As one who has been involved in sports on virtually an everyday basis for the better part of a half century, I'll admit to not being much of a fan. I'll certainly have rooting interests, but I'm generally simply pulling for the teams I've invested in that day. Beyond that, I don't really care all that much who wins or loses and my enjoyment is more as an ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 5/3/18

The task just got a little tougher. The Vegas Golden Knights were soundly beaten in Game Four of their series with the San Jose Sharks. It's the first time in these playoffs, and obviously in Golden Knights playoffs history, that they've taken one squarely on the chin. The good news for the Knights is that they will be returning home where the incredibly ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 5/2/18

There was some thought that maybe things would be different this time around. The Toronto Raptors had finally snapped their lengthy streak of Game One defeats in the opening round. They seemed perfectly positioned to get out of the gate with a victory over a tired Cleveland Cavaliers entry on Tuesday night. The Raptors are evidently still the Raptors. ... More
