The Weekend Desk Report

If only more politicians could predict the future, we could have our weekends back. Until that happens, we'll be here to serve you.

Quest Kick-off
While the Beachwood's Ex-Hawk Affairs Desk seems to have found the winning formula for predicting the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Weekend Desk has a few sure things to throw into the mix.

New Jersey vs. Tampa Bay: Legend has it that the lightning bolt is God's favorite means of smiting the unholy. But if you've already fallen from grace, what the hell, right? Expect the unrepentant Devils to romp.

Ottawa vs. Pittsburgh: Current thinking suggests that even though the Penguins will go down hard, no one will be more utterly shocked than the Senators.

Nashville vs. San Jose: It's the battle of general vs. specific as the Predators take on the Sharks. Despite early signs of life, one thing is certain: it's a shitty time to be a fish.

Hunting High and Low
Corporate lawyers in Chicago take note: you're likely to wind up with a hell of a lot more than buckshot in your face if you accept an invitation to go hunting with Uncle Dickey this weekend. [Courtesy of Weekend Desk stringer Larry Peterson.]

Dirty Indeed
The White House may not yet have found its new War Czar, but it has nailed down his or her first television appearance. The War Czar episode will make a fitting follow-up to last season's wildly popular E-Mail Flusher edition.

He is Family
Finally, as the notoriously fickle veterans' committee convenes this weekend it seems Tricky Dick may have some company in the Misplaced Exuberance Hall of Fame at last. Best of luck, Mr. Birkhead. You're an all-time great in our eyes.
