  1. ^ ^ ^ Keep up the good work! In case you need some extra motivation, my weight chart from last year:
  2. I WILL run the Silicon Valley Marathon this November! Last year I had to drop out due to knee injury, then got sidelined over the winter after hernia surgery. But this year I've greatly improved my running mechanics and have made it up to 10 miles pain-free so far. Oh yes, and I'm raising money for autism research again. Thanks to SouthernWingsFan and vladdy16 for donating last year!
  3. That would probably be another $250.
  4. Oh that was scary.
  5. Lilja still on the bench. Blocked a shot off his heel, they said.
  6. Puede ser, pero me gusta la rima, todavía significa "The Train to Punishment."
  7. And Marchant goes right back into the sin bin.
  9. Have a good game boys! Weather the first ten minutes, then season and roast 'em. BTW: If you have the Versus/Golf combo HD channel, look for the game on MOJO.
  10. I don't know to what extent it's borrowed; it may just be a Mexican borrowing. It does seem that Spanish tends to localize more given how closely the orthography is tied to pronunciation. In English of course we don't care because we know ours is the sausage of the spelling world. By the way, Olga diría: "Adelante las alas rojas."
  11. The Slovak c gives some English speakers trouble, yet most have no problem with other foreign sounds like those in "pizza" or "loch". Look at it another way: In English we have ways of pronouncing letters that are unusual to speakers of other languages. No other language as far as I know associates our long i sound with the letter i -- Spanish pie ("foot") does not sound the same as English "pie". And in cases where the source language is also written with the Latin alphabet, we don't usually Anglicize the spelling when borrowing words or writing out names. Similarly in the other direction, the French borrowing for "weekend" is not spelled *wiquende or *huiquende, nor is the Spanish borrowing for "jeans" spelled *chins. (Of course, there are exceptions: the Spanish word for a long-sleeve knit top is suéter.)
  12. That combination Versus/Golf HD channel is just weird. The last thing hockey fans want to be reminded of is golf.
  13. The only thing rarer than a Lilja goal is a Lilja interview. (J/K, we love ya Lils!) NBCSports.com - Facing off with Andreas Lilja Quite personable and has a great attitude toward the game.
  14. When I first read the title, I thought that maybe Buffalo had stolen the Leafs' playoff song from a few years back. High flying high drama. It's going to be a great series!
