In 2003, Maggie the Monkey climbed onto a high chair in the TSN studios to spin a wheel and pick the underdog Mighty Ducks as Stanley Cup finalists. The Ducks made it to the finals and Maggie’s fame lead to a full time job as playoff prognosticator! This year will be Maggie’s last season with TSN, and, if you ask me, it’s about time!!!!!!!
It’s not that I don’t like Maggie the Monkey, I thought she ruled… until last night! Now, I think she’s a bit rusty! Why?! The Habs did not get a favorable spin of Maggie’s lucky wheel. She predicted the Boston Bruins would beat the Habs in their first round series. As if!!!!!!!!! I know she’s wrong!!!
The Calgary Flames and the Vancouver Canucks were both picked as first round winners by Maggie. Her other picks were the Devils, Flyers, Sharks and a couple of upset specials – the Blue Jackets to beat the Red Wings and the Rangers to beat the Capitals.
Maggie’s playoff prediction record is an impressive 40-35 but, in all honesty, I don’t trust her this year… Time to retire Maggie!!! GO HABS GO!!!
