Ugh. Well the awesome playoff run for the Devils ended last night, as the LA Kings won their first Stanley Cup ever (they have been a franchise for nearly 45 years!)…beating the Devils 6-1 last night. That score looks ugly, and it is, but the reason it was so bad was because of a ridiculously dumb penalty by Devils Steve Bernier…he got a 5 minute major for boarding, and the beauty of a major penalty is that even if the other team scores, your guys still sits in the penalty box for the entire 5 minutes. Well the Kings took advantage of that and scored 3 times during that 5 minute one-man advantage. I read a lot of bitching about the officiating, the rules, etc…but at the end of the day…they still had 2 periods to turn it into a game, and they didn’t…the Kings looked great, and although it sucks watching them celebrate a cup win by beating my favorite team…it was cool to see a team win their first championship…and do it in front of their fans. Then came the best moment ion all of sports…The post playoff series hand shake. I know some don’t like this, but I think it’s one of the coolest things in all of sports…and it is one of the many reasons why I think hockey is the greatest sport. It was real cool to see the moment whenMartin Brodeur and playoff MVP Jonathan Quick stopped to talk and shake hands…
The true MVP though for the Kings though wasn’t Quick…hell it wasn’t even Steve Bernier from the Devils (although they should put his name on the cup)...the MVP goes to her:
Yup…that’s porn actress Taylor Stevens…and she was spotted behind the Devils bench…making every fan hope the TV crew would cut to coach Deboer…here is a pic of her at the game:
We came across a couple interesting stories…There are a few new things to worry about in life. One of them is…GOUT. The number of gout cases in the U.S. has doubled over the past 20 years, and now 4% of the population suffers from it. That's 8.3 million people. Gout is a form of arthritis that comes from high uric acid buildup in the body. You'll have swelling and pain on your feet and possibly ankles and knees. The best ways to control it are, of course, diet and exercise.
The other thing people are worrying about is Self Control. A new study from the University of Iowa found that we only have a limited amount of self-control . . . once it's used up we're much more likely to do something DUMB the next time we're faced with a challenging situation.
Based on a story about how Gout and Self control are 2 new things that people worry about...what is something that you are currently worrying about? Here are some of the texts we received:

Big thanks to actor Simon Pegg for joining us. Simon shared with us that he just wrapped up filming the second Star trek film, and his book “Nerd Do Well” is now available on paperback…if you are a fan of all things Sci-Fi/Geeky you will love his stories…like this this one about Carrie Fisher of Star Trek fame, and the time he met her at a Comic-Con:
A funny thing happened to David Arquette when he went to Israel to film a segment for the Travel Channel series "Mile High". At 41 years of age, he finally had his bar mitzvah. He Tweeted, "I had my Bar Mitzvah today… Finally I'm a man." Arquette's mother is Jewish, but he and his siblings weren't raised in a religious environment.
So David Arquette finally had his Bar Mitzvah...at the age of 41! So we asked the Rock-A-Holics to finish this sentence…”It took me long enough, but I finally did ______.” Or…what is something at your age that you should have accomplished by now? Here are some of the texts we got:
