  1. Hey All. Wondering if anybody on the board is going to this game? I am making the journey from Jersey and will likely be staying in Ann Arbor for the Friday and Saturday night. I also may have two spare tickets. 9th row in a corner. It would be cool to do a meet up/drink up. 109,000+ tickets sold, pretty cool.
  2. Of course the one game they have in the NY/NJ/PA region is the same day I will be in MI for the Big Chill at the Big House. Murphy's Law. Guess I'm going to Boston in Feb.
  3. The Islander's dynasty went to the finals 5 years in a row too. I'm sure quite a few guys would have gone 5 yrs in a row there too, just not winning 5 in a row. I'm saying this without any research.
  4. And lost...
  5. I posted this in my other post but it fits.
  6. Some years I guess i just have to laugh. To be spotted two games in a 7 game series is tough for any team, to legitimately lose a 3rd makes it even harder. I for one am proud of Detroit this year, they had a terrible start and if it weren't for bad luck, they would have had no luck at all for a while in 09. I wanted to see them go deep in the playoffs like all of us, but odds say that won't happen every year, especially with the cap in place (gotta keep Atlanta competitive you know.) I thought the team played with class and i am excited for the new crop of wings. Miller, Abdelkader, Eaves, and all of the young guys that may not have cracked the line-up had it not been for our numerous injuries at the start of the year, played with a lot of heart. They made a great run at the end. They bonded, it was visible in their play. Thank you Wings! On a side note, my buddy sent me this picture and I probably should have been fired for laughing so hard. PS - I am by no means disappearing from the board until October, but I do feel a thanks was in order to the team.
  7. How is it that in the regular season we were the 2nd to least in penalty min per game at 8.8, to now in the playoffs being at 13.9, with 16 minutes a game in this round 2 (too small of a sample size to really ***** over)? I just don't get it. Are the refs really this bad? I have only listened to the first two games on XM as I was driving to see family. Someone fill me in.
  8. It's a Tequila ad actually, but same dif. The guy met a hot cougar that turns out to be the other guy's mom who is in town.
  9. PP, I will put a fiver on it that we get called for something 30 seconds in...
  10. "Pretty interference call there..." Especially if your are already calling everything against the wings. Oh, a Teal guy is on the ice, Blow the whistle.
  11. I didn't want to feed the trolls on this, but you have added nothing to the conversation. You have attacked with useless posts that a 13 year-old would think was immature and poorly thought up. And you have been a rather unwelcome guest. You are the equivalent of the acne riddled freshman breaking into a frat house and screaming 'You all suck! Where the hot ******* at?!' And much like that situation, you will find yourself removed soon.
  12. And one more Dan Snyder.
  13. At least the Panthers have actually made it to the finals...
  14. I have co-workers that don't watch hockey because they say that can't figure out what is a penalty and what isn't. I'm beginning to understand their confusion.
  15. I try not to be a conspiracy nut, but this league makes it so damn hard sometimes....
