  1. This or That

    I'll take AA. Cap space can be cleared if necessary, even if it means waiving someone. Pizza Hut or Papa John's?
  2. The person below me game...

    I am self-taught, so it may not be "swimming" but I can get from point A to point B in water. The person below me is pleased that AA is signed.
  3. Disney Buys Star Wars, 3 New Films Coming

    One "I am your father" moment may occur...
  4. The person below me game...

    I never even got to the Joe. The person below me is satisfied with the new rule regarding challenging an offsides.
  5. This or That

    Depends on the situation, but if you're just talking about eating them plain as a snack, I'll go with mozzarella "string cheese". Spring or fall?
  6. Official Detroit Lions thread

    Dear Lions, Thank you for beating the Vikings. My Vikings-fan friend and I had a pride bet. Had the Lions lost, I would have had to say, "May the Force be with you" to every customer the next shift I work. Sincerely, Lions fan in Vikings territory
  7. Met a Couple Red Wings Family Members

    I'll be your wingman, er, woman. I'll distract Kocur. I only ask that you buy drinks.
  8. Vegas Off Ice Trouble Watch

    I'm sure our fine, upstanding boys will have no desire to do anything that would sully the reputation of our great game or of the league, or cause any embarrassment to their parents or spouses or bring shame upon their family names. Except maybe a few.... dozen. If this was a few years back, I'd go with Kane, but he seems to have settled down. Probably be some young kid.
  9. Official Detroit Lions thread

    So the Lions led the opponent through the whole game and didn't choke at the end. Is this possible? Do other teams do this? Perhaps it is a strategy we should employ along with our usual waiting until the last minute to mount an impossible comeback.
  10. Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    I just went and checked to see who is left unsigned for teams and there are a lot of players that are marginal and/or young that are going overseas. I wonder if some are not taking a year to play in a league where they will let them off for the Olympics. You know the teams will be watered down without NHL players. A guy like AA might have the chance. Obviously if a player has an NHL contract or can get a good one, he'll stay, but if the choice is between mediocre money here and good money there plus a chance to play in the Olympics, how many players might not take a year away from the NHL for that experience? Not saying this is AA specifically, just throwing it out there.
  11. This or That

    In general, I like the links, but there are some good patties and bad links out there. Sausage is, kind of by definition, different every time. Mittens or gloves?
  12. This or That

    Ooh, that's a hard one.. In general, I prefer cold to hot because you can always add more clothes, but you can't always take them off. That said, as a North Dakotan, I prefer summer because there's no shoveling, no warming up the car, no worrying about getting snowed in at work or home, and there's hockey. Chicken or eggs?
  13. This or That

    Sauce. Preferably more sweet than spicy, and not too much of it. Cash, check, debit, or credit?
  14. The person below me game...

    The last 3 years are the only time since 1986 when I haven't had 2 jobs or had a full-time job whilst going to school full time. I guess I kind of have 2 jobs now since I've started a business on the side. I make candles as a hobby and have started selling them at events. The person below me is a Gemini, Irish, or a vegan.
  15. This or That

    /G/if, just to make sure that I'm not watching peanut butter. Hot tub or sauna?
  16. This or That

    Pizza Physics or biology?
  17. The person below me game...

    Nope. I'll be lucky if I get to one in St. Paul. The person below me has more than 6 pictures of friends/family on their living room walls.
  18. The person below me game...

    Never say die. I still believe the Wings can and will come back. I also believe this of the Lions, and look where that's gotten me. The person below me speaks a second language (or first, if English is your second).
  19. This or That

    Juice Odd numbers or even numbers?
  20. This or That

    Froot Loops. Haven't had them in years, but now that you mention them, I may have to make them my next frivolous buy. Better b-day gift: Gift card or money?
  21. The person below me game...

    Would be nice, but I've never been to Detroit. The person below me occasionally eats pickles.
  22. July 1, 2017 UFA DAY!

    KFQ is now a Wild. I guess after getting rid of Scandella via trade, they need a D.
  23. July 1, 2017 UFA DAY!

    Bonino to the Perds. Interesting.
  24. Always good to have a player who can play both F and D in case of injuries. Just ask Meech.
  25. July 1, 2017 UFA DAY!

    Me too. Just because he's Jagr.
