    11/9 GDT - Tampa Bay 4 at Detroit 3 (SO) - 6:00 PM EST

    Great Mickey-ism (in regard to Nyquist): "That kid's really good at making chicken soup, let me tell ya!!!"

    Nolan suspended 2 games for hit on Helm

    Thanks. I got a NHL text alert and didn't have a link!

    Wings stuff on clearance at Dick's

    Rick, sorry about that... I should have said "a common". Franzen was the only option in my size. My wife and son got WC jerseys of some guy named "Howard" for the same price.
  4. Stopped into our local Dick's Sporting Goods and stumbled on two clearance rack of shirts, pullovers, sweatshirts, coats, hats, socks, and some jerseys. Items were 50-75% off the lowest ticketed price and most of the stuff had been previously marked down. I got a Franzen WC Jersey for $34, and a embrodered heavy winter coat for $54. I added it up at home and we got $856 of originally priced stuff for $206! The store's name is the common nickname for "Richard".
  5. Remember when the Pens refused to sell tickets to anyone with a Michigan ZIP code for the Finals in an effort to keep their "red" from ruining their "white out" home games? Well, hopefully this will put an end to the practice: Can Sports Teams Keep Rival Fans Away?

    Kris Letang Suffers Stroke

    I assume this is what Letang has: Our daughter was diagnosed with PDA a month or so after she was born. It closed eventually on its own. Otherwise we were told she might require surgery.

    Pet Names

    We have a red tabby Siberian cat named "Pavel". Ironically, we got him from a breeder in Pittsburgh and he was born shortly before the 2009 SCF!

    Osgood to fill in Larry Murphy's job

    I agree, Ozzie will be highly entertaining, for sure...
  9. While I conceed that a new barn is inevidable, I will mourn the reduction of the view of the upper bowl seats with the all-but-certain addition of the mid-level suites. I suppose the reduction in seating is to allow for the suites as well as additional leg room from increasing the depth of each row. But seeing as they haven't even apparently settled on a design, I think we'll have a number of seasons to still enjoy JLA.

    Visors Required - New NHL Players in '13-'14

    I'm fine with it... but a lot of guys will just wear them tilited way up as to make them useless for protection like they do in the minors where they are required.

    2/1 GDT : Blues 3 at Red Wings 5 (Z with Hat Trick)

    Agreed... I understand why the trailing ref made the call due to the head-snap, but it was only a "chest cracker". I wish we hadn't gotten the gamer winner on that PP, but then again we get screwed on calls too!

    I need a prayer answered, toot-toot whistles.

    Infinitely better idea than those rinky-dink whistles!

    I need a prayer answered, toot-toot whistles.

    Normally, I'm not a violent person.... But all bets are off is someone near me starts blowing one of those things! I'm glad he's our "little ball of hate" now, but the whistles are lame, and annoying.
