Two for the show!

A couple of quick observations.

I have never been an avid fan of watching sports on TV. I look at sports the same way I look at sex and that is that I would rather do it myself than watch someone else do it!!! However!

When the NHL post season started everyone in the world was joking about how the Ottawa Senators would be the first team out and how did they even make the playoffs to begin with.

Well boys and girls, not only are they still in contention, but it looks like (dare I say it?) they might even be in line for the finals and the Stanley Cup if they keep playing the way they have so far.

Goes to show that you should never count your chickens before they hatch or your Senators before they score.

On a different note we were watching a fight when the Boston Pops broke out in music. Yes, it wasn't a "Night at the Pops," it was a "Fight at the Pops!"

The Boston Pops kicked off its new season with a bang — and perhaps a pow! and a boom! — Wednesday night, after a barroom-type brawl interrupted the music concert.

A knock-down, all-out fight broke out between two men seated in the balcony section of Boston's Symphony Hall, halting a performance of a musical medley from the film Gigi by the orchestra and its special guest, singer-songwriter Ben Folds.

In this video frame grab provided by WHDH-TV7, a fight breaks out in the balcony at Symphony Hall on opening night of the new Boston Pops season on Wednesday.

According to eye-witness reports, the audience was first alerted to the kerfuffle (I love that word) by a loud scream.

At that point, conductor Keith Lockhart reportedly looked up at the balcony but continued to lead the orchestra. He paused, however, when the two brawling men began knocking over chairs and a second, louder scream rang out.

Several local television stations, which had sent cameras to record footage of the season opener, caught the fight on film.

Lockhart briefly stopped the performance as ushers and police officers working security for the concert broke up the fight and escorted the two men — including one whose shirt was torn open in the violent struggle — off the property.

Maestro was not amused!
