Pro Sports in North Carolina

I'm off in a bit to watch the Carolina Hurricanes play the Buffalo Sabres in the deciding game of the NHL semifinals (my moral dilemma was resolved when I sadly watched the Hurricanes lose Game 6, then happily remembered I was on my way to Game 7). Go Canes!

Meanwhile, a preseason pro football magazine has picked the Carolina Panthers to win this year's Super Bowl, over the Denver Broncos. (Earlier this week, my favorite football writer, Peter King, picked the Dallas Cowboys over the Panthers to advance to the Super Bowl -- that I don't see. The Seattle Seahawks? Possibly. The Chicago Bears? An outside chance. But the Cowboys?)

The Hurricanes are a win away from the Stanley Cup finals, and the Panthers are an early pick to win the Super Bowl. It's a good time for professional sports in this state. (I won't discuss the NBA, but then again, I don't care about it.)
