PHT arrives at the Stanley Cup Final

Jun 12, 2013, 11:04 AM EDT

And we immediately head to the hotel bar…


Actually, we didn’t have time for our customary morning cocktail, as Halford broke his laptop last night, so it was off to Staples for a replacement. Is Toshiba a good brand? Probably not, but that’s what he got because it was cheap.

Anyway, we’ll have our Stanley Cup picks up in a bit, plus all the news of the day. After that, it’s off to the United Center for Gary Bettman’s press conference at 5 p.m. local time. Do you think anyone will ask the commissioner about the Phoenix Coyotes ownership situation? Stay tuned!

Then, of course, it’s Game 1 of the Final between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Boston Bruins. Which we’ll watch.

    RIP, Dell laptop. You were a good laptop, but in the end you couldn’t survive the wear and tear of road life. There will be a small service on Thursday morning to celebrate its life. Floppy disks will be served.

      I had a mammoth Dell Inspiron E1705 that lasted me almost four years. The only reason I stopped using it was work provided me with a new Lenovo W510. The Lenovo is going on about three years now, still going strong. Took them from home to the office every day of their lives, brought them on a few vacations too.

      Sad to say, but the consumer grade laptop you picked up cheap is probably going to be a mess in a year or two. They just don’t last the rigors of travel.

      As coasters for the drinks?

      On the road much…. go small! MS Surface Pro works well for the road warrior.

        My lady got one for work traveling and loves it.

        jcmeyer10, Yep! Got one the week it came out. It does everything a PC can, is light yet powerful, 128GB storage, and nice metro interface. I don’t miss the start button at all, but it will be back in 8.1. Starting an app is faster if you hit the windows key and type the first few letters of an app. Great buy! I use it more often than my iPad.

    All credibility goes out the window when someone doesn’t take time to get a drink. Priorities people!

    I have a Toshiba that’s going on 4 years old and still going strong. I like them. Asus is the best in my opinion though.

    If anybody ever asks if it’s an appropriate time to have a drink, you are to turn to them and say this:

    “The sun is over the yardarm somewhere in the world.”

    The only problems I have had with my Toshiba came when I fell off my skateboard on it and when I spilled my scotch on the keyboard. Other then that it works great.

    My Dell was a tank in college, but amazingly died the day after my last senior year final and warranty contract ended.

    I replaced it with a Toshiba two years ago, and it’s been great, not that I use it for much more than music and word processing (resumes, cover letters, etc).

    I’m going to be severely disappointed if we don’t get a boozy PHT update
