Sports Morning

1. Why doesn't the NHL time its playoff schedule so that they are separated from the NBA playoffs by several weeks? Haven't they figured out by now that putting the Stanley Cup finals out in head-to-head competition with basketball finals is a loser move for hockey?

2. At 11:300 today, the U.S.A. plays Italy in a pre-qualification round for the World Cup. U.S. versus Italy leaves me deeply conflicted. It's too bad they can't both win.

Maybe the NHL figures the NBA should move theirs. As for soccer, blah don't care.

The US-Italy game is a Confederation Cup match and has no bearing on the World Cup, qualification or otherwise...
