What's happening in my sports world this weekend -- Bruins, Red Sox, Reds, Broncos, Cowboys and more

By far the biggest event this weekend is going to be tonight's Stanley Cup game 5 Bruins v Canucks in Vancouver.  I am so fired up for this game!!!!!  A Bruins win will put them in a great position for Monday night's game back in Boston.

Red Sox have really hit their stride lately and are coming off an impressive sweep of the Yankees.  The play the Blue Jays in Toronto this weekend.  Tonight's game may be tough to see much of with the Bruins game on, will watch the first hour though starting at 7pm until the Bruins game starts.  Saturday and Sunday's games are at 1pm.  Yankees play the Indians while the Rays play the Orioles.

Only 2 rounds to go in Super 15 Rugby and the Reds have had a great season.  Tomorrow morning EST they play the Western Force in Perth so it is at the US friendly time of 8am.  I will probably be up early anyway to watch the North Queensland Cowboys play Manly Sea Eagles in Rugby League action at 5:30 am (maybe the 2nd half).  Will have to set up the computer and headphones for that one.  The Brisbane Broncos play the Canberra Raiders on Sunday, my hometown team Brisbane will be without many of their stars who will be playing for Queensland on Wednesday.

In the NBA finals the Heat under all sorts of pressure now that the Mavericks have a 3-2 lead in the series.  On Sunday the Mavs will look to close out the series.  We all know that Wade has what it takes but can he get any help from LeBron and Bosh to save the series?  Game not to be missed on Sunday night!

Today is moving day at the Fedex St Jude Classic and players are scrambling to make the cut and play on the weekend.  As it stands right now it looks like a bunch of Aussies will make the cut inlcuding Allenby, Senden, Ogilvy, Pampling, Chalmers, Price, O'Hern, Percy.  Of these guys maybe O'Hern who is at 3 under and 6 shots behind the leader Karlson may have a chance.  But stranger things have happened on the tour thats for sure!

Quick mention about a big cycling race that happening in France the Critérium du Dauphiné which is considered a warm up race for the Tour de France.  Aussie Cadel Evans is currently in second place overall behind Bradley Wiggins.  Only 2 stages left and the race ends on Sunday.  Could this be Cadel's year to win the Tour de France?  It may be one of his last chances.

These are teams that I will be watching this weekend: Bruins, Red Sox, Reds,  Brisbane Bronocs, NQ Cowboys.  Check back on Monday for a video report on how they performed!
