    Watching the Pittsburgh Penguins/ Tampa Lightning Eastern Conference Title games makes me wonder how much excitement is there in the Tampa Metro area? Is it a big deal on the local news - leading story? Do most of the waitresses / cashiers in town wear Lighning jerseys? Does the local grocery store chain offer yard signs that say "Go Lightning"? Does everyone talk about the previous game and next game?

    Oh, and the Pens just went up 2 games to 1.

    You're asking the wrong person. I don't watch any sports or news on TV.
    I did go to one hockey game and found out there are only 3 "quarters", but that's all I know.
