Penguins Repeat Stanley Cup Champs, Warriors/Cavs Game 5, Tapwrit Wins Belmont, Nadal Makes History


The Pittsburgh Penguins won the coveted Stanley Cup by beating the Nashville Predators in 6 games (4-2). With the win, the Penguins become the first team to repeat as Champions since the 1997 Detroit Red Wings.  Future Hall of Famer, Sidney Crosby won the Conn Smythe (most valuable player) award and is only the third player in NHL history to win the trophy in back to back seasons.


On Friday night the Cleveland Cavaliers snapped the Golden State Warriors 15 win playoff streak and staved off elimination. The best of seven series is now 3-1 with game 5 back in Oakland Monday night, 9:00 pm ET

Horse Racing

The first four finishers of the Belmont Stakes all ran in the Kentucky Derby, but skipped the second leg of the Triple Crown (the Preaknes) then came back for a strong showing in the Belmont on Saturday. Tapwrit (who finished 6th in the Derby) edged out Irish War Cry to win the 1 1/2 mile race.


Rafael Nadal made history on Sunday by winning the French Open and his 10th Grand Slam Title. The significance of the occasion was not lost on Nadal. He said through tears, “The adrenaline and nerves I feel on this court I can’t describe. This is the most important event in my career, without a doubt.”
