  1. 2013 Round 2 Photoshop War: Chicago Blackhawks

    I made it real quick.
  2. 2013 Round 2 Photoshop War: Chicago Blackhawks

    Can you redo this one with todays date?
  3. WCSF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 4, (CHI leads series 1-0)

    I live in NW Indiana (Valpo) and I got about 10 texts and then Facebook blew up! At least on FB I can "approve" posts. Of course I deleted all of them!!!
  4. The Goal Light

    My buddy actually bought this for my son. I live in NW Indiana surrounded by hawks. Steve Dahl a local radio host in Chicago is promoting it on his web site. It is actually pretty cool and loud. We just re-did my sons room all Red Wings and when my buddy saw this, he got it for my son for his room. My son, 10, now brings it out every time we are watching the Wings and sounds the horn and has a blast. He is excited to use when the playoffs come around. Also I am taking him to his first game in Detroit on the 22nd when the BH's visit Hockeytown. This will be his first game at the Joe. His only experience with Red Wings (besides TV) is at the UC when we go to RW games in Chicago. He is upset the Dats is out and hope he will be playing on the 22nd (doubtful). Anyways it is a pretty cool product and worth $40 IMHO.
  5. DirecTV dropping Versus network

    FYI....I was automatically renewed through DirecTV. After reading this thread, I called Directv and got $50 off my current subscription. I basically went on Versus.com and counted how many RW games where on (9) and told DTV that I am a RW fan and because of the Comcasr/DTV issues I would not get to see those games. The first rep was very rude. I had told her that ANY game that would be on Versus would NOT be on Center Ice regardless as V has rights. She wanted to argue and say she can not foresee the future and put me on hold. I hung up after 10 mins waiting. Called back, explained again. This time the CSR was friendly and understanding (even though a Hawks fan). She said she could give me $50 off. I accepted. Also please note that my DTV contract ended on the 25 of October. So I had a little leverage as I said I would just go to ATT U-Verse (not even available in my area - LOL). In any case DTV is handling this well IMO. They know they could loose subscribers. GOBLUE AND GOWINGS!!!!
  6. Derian Hatcher retires

    Went to High School with Hatcher. Great guy, great career. Glad he is sticking around to continue with the NHL.
  7. Steve Yzerman

    Are you serious? It's not up to him. Think about it - nevermind.
  8. Best places to watch the SCF in Vegas

    Also some of the places I noticed they have these "portable" speakers you can bring to your table and tune into the channels they have playing. That way you can hear the game at your table, even though it's loud or your 20ft from TV.
  9. Best places to watch the SCF in Vegas

    I was there for last Anaheim game, and Game one of the BH's. We were staying at Southpoint Casino. Watch in the Sports Bar / Lounge. Any casino will have it going on at the Sports Betting area, trust me. You will have no problem finding it. Tons of RW's fans were there and it was nice.
  10. Khabibulin, Havlat: Out for Game 5

    I totally agree. What scares me is that BH's have come back way too many times to count them out, with Khabibulin in net their chances increase.
  11. Khabibulin, Havlat: Out for Game 5

    Khabibulin is in full pads practicing....No sign of HAVSPLAT. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?...cupplayoffsblog
