Don't Look Now, But There's a Metroplex Pro Sports Team 4 Wins From a Trophy

The Dallas Mavericks are into the second round. The Texas Rangers are back to .500. And, out in North Richland Hills, a minor-league hockey team tonight begins its quest for the Metroplex's first pro sports championship this millennium.

Maybe this Swine Flu is a good thing after all?

Couple of riveting Game 7s in the NHL last night, neither, of course, involving your disappointing Dallas Stars. For local playoff hockey you have to turn to the Texas Brahmas, who have been around for 11 years but never this close to a championship.

The Brahmas begin the Central Hockey League's President's Cup Finals tonight in Colorado. Games 3, 4 and 5 will be at NRH's NYTEX Sports Centre, the CHL's toughest barn this season.

As I've done all post-season, I'll be providing insightful iffy color analysis on Time Warner Cable/Metro Sports' TV broadcasts. (Think Daryl Reaugh, only with ... on second thought, no, don't insult him.) The Brahamas - the equivalent of baseball's AA Frisco RoughRiders - are even reaching out to you, the Sportatorium nerd, with specially priced tickets to the games Sunday afternoon and next Tuesday and Wednesday night.

Who knows, you might even get a chance to see a cup skated around some ice. Guarantee you won't see that at American Airlines Center this spring.
