That's too funny... though it kind of makes me feel bad for the players (and their families) if autograph seekers are actually disguising themselves as UPS people to get up on players' porches! (Since your friend made it seem like Stevie had seen this kind of thing all too many times.) That crosses a line, there. And not in a good way.

So I guess I should return that UPS uniform I was going to use to deliver Ozzie's birthday present? :lol: I can't believe that people would actually do that, but I guess some just don't understand boundaries.

Thanks Offsides

... it did make her forget whatever she was going to yell at us about, so the goalies made the save! I should piece together an updated version that includes Howard, Conk, and Joey Mac...

LOVE THAT QUOTE! And yes, you should! Then I could frame it and hang it up in my office too!

So the power went out literally just as I finished my last post two nights ago. It was a long one, so that sucked! I do remember some of what it said.., most of all, thank you ladies for not judging me! I was pretty scared to come back after laying it all out there like that. :unsure: But I had nothing to worry about at all!! And that is awesome, so thanks for making me feel welcome! :cool:

So I guess I didn't tell you about going to the Griffins game last Saturday! I went alone, my hubby's still sick. I sat in front of these people that got the tickets from the mascot for free; they weren't really into hockey unfortunately so I had to be pretty quiet. Not my specialty. But something really cool happened! The Love for Lokomotiv ladies were there selling bracelets (which I already have) and next to them there was a fundraiser going on for this Grand Rapids fallen officer. The entire team had all signed one of their sticks and you could buy them for $65 each, there was only one per player, and Joey Mac's stick was still available! So I went to the ATM, and went back, and THE GUY IN FRONT OF ME BOUGHT THE STICK. I was SO mad!! :unhappy: The lady looked at me and I think she didn't think I was coming back so she knew she had done me wrong! She was like, well, they do this every game, when are you coming back? I said, Lady! I live 2 hours and 45 minutes away! I don't know IF I'll be coming back! I didn't really say "Lady!" I just said "I don't really know. I live almost 3 hours away." So she said, can you wait here for like 5 minutes? and left. So I looked over at the Love for Lokomotiv hockey wives and one of them said, "She is married to one of the trainers. She'll hook you up." But the thing was, Joey had just gotten hurt, like really bad. One of the Carolina players had slammed into him so hard he knocked his helmet off! So I was not optimistic. He couldn't even skate straight off the ice, seriously. So, like 10 minutes later, this chick comes back, with JOEY MACDONALDS HOCKEY STICK THAT HE WAS JUST USING SIGNED FOR ME. For real! I was so excited I could barely get the money out of my pocket. She said he was fine, so that was great. He didn't play the third period so I was worried about him because he is their starter. It was crazy. I buckled it in for the drive home. Felt like quite the bad ass carrying that around. :showoff:

Then Wednesday I went Ozzie Stalking in Toledo for the Walleye game. Didn't see him. Turns out the matinee game, is KID'S DAY.
:shock:
I can say that 6500 middle school kids singing Justin Beiber and Miley Cyrus songs during intermission gets old really, REALLY fast. As does them screaming FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT every time someone gets slammed into the boards. I went to see McCollum, but he was pulled up to Grand Rapids on Tuesday due to Joey being "day to day" so there was this dude from San Jose there. It wasn't pretty. I didn't like him immediately because he wore #30. As if. Then I found out he was with the Sharks. Strike 2. Then they scored on him when there were FOUR Walleye players around ONE Chicago player. None of the Walleye guys were screening him, for the record. Then he let 3 more in within a 2 minute time period. I'm all for the score due to the entire team's overall effort, but damn. That's all I'm gonna say about that.

OK, before the power goes out again, I'm going to add this reply!

:usaflag:
Happy Veteran's Day!!
Ozzie, what do you think the key to this whole playoffs and winning the Stanley Cup was? (asks Darren McCarty, interviewing Ozzie after beating Penguins in 2008 to win the Cup) "Just that we made every last minute a kerfuffule. That would be it, I mean, we never could just put an empty-netter in there to make it easy. We had to... really, you know what we did it for? So the fans could watch right to the end."

Thanks, Oz. So nice of you to always be thinking of the fans!!!!

That's awesome that the lady got you JoeyMac's stick. And very awesome that he wasn't hurt.

Hopefully Mr. I'm Number 30 has a change of heart and number before he hits the big time. We'll think the best of him and imagine that he's just as big of an Ozzie fan as we are (minus the chick thing, of course).

Damn, had I known you were at the game last Saturday...we were too! Where were you sitting? We were in Section 106, Row M, on the aisle. Our friend Kathy was the one who dropped the puck, and she and her hubby Art were sitting behind us. I wish I would have known you were there!

Is that not the most wonderful feeling, to lay out some secret that's eating at you and have other people be like, "hey, we understand"? This place is great. :)

And that is so cool how you got to buy Joey Mac's stick-- when it was probably still warm from his hands! But I'm sorry the Walleye game was ruined by the Invasion Of The Children.


So, yesterday was my dad's birthday (technically he's my stepdad, but he's my heart-dad), so Casey and I took him to see the Wings POUND the Stars as his birthday gift. We had awesome seats, until this dude with a GIANT HEAD sat down in front of me and I had to spend the rest of the game trying to look around him. My dad is 6'3", and even he was having trouble seeing over and around this guy! It was like sitting behind a damn Peanuts character! The dude could have been his own bobblehead. And then GIANT HEAD BOY and his girlfriend and the couple they came with were all so freaking drunk they were slurring their words. And apparently drinking makes them all, um, amorous, because they were acting like they were in a cheap motel that rents by the hour and has coin operated magic fingers attached to the beds. Do you have any idea how awkward it is to watch people darn-near having fully clothed sex while you're sitting next to your dad??? Posted Image Posted Image I kind of felt like after the game I should have congratulated the two girls for managing to keep their shirts on the whole time.

Anyway, we all had an awesome time, GIANT HEAD BOY and the makeout crew notwithstanding. And I have warm-up pictures! Also, Pasha made eye contact with me during the warm-ups. I kind of feel like I've had direct eye contact with some sort of semi-divine being now. And Conklin also made eye contact with me, with a nice sort of twinkly-eyed smile look. And Brunnstrom did too, but he's still a rookie so he probably still looks at all the fans instead of staying hyper-focused like everyone else does in warm-ups. Posted Image He's got some pretty, pretty eyes, though.

I tried to get some shots of the detail of Conk's helmet, since he parked himself right there and I hadn't seen it up close before:

I have a new favorite Brendan Shanahan quote (a man after my own heart, it would seem): “Watching a shootout is like admitting you watch Survivor or search the internet for porn.”

It makes me feel good to know he doesn't like shootouts either.

Great pics! And I know what you mean about an obstructed view. I had three tall guys sit in front of me one game, and Terry has a real problem if he is in the chair - he can't see over anyone when they stand up. It's why we always liked the suite better.

:rotflmao:
LOVE IT!!

And, what's wrong with having a large number of Jimmy's goalie bootie pics?? I do. :blush: Why do you think I'm always parked behind the goal in warmups?!? LOL

So, when I stretch as tall as I can, I am a total of 5' 4". I feel your pain with big head guy! At least it was an awesome game to take your mind off the PDA going on in front of you! Talk about awkward. I think that would be worse than having just regular drunk guys in front of you. Uh, Happy Birthday Dad?! Yeah.

I have been going to a lot of games lately, Dawn. I just decided if I'm going to have fun, I might as well just do it! I was on the Grand Rapids Griffins website the other day, and BEFORE realizing it was 3 hours away bought tickets. HA. Then I'd been wanting to go see the Walleye for awhile, so I just happened to have a ridiculous week at work and decided, damn it, I'm goin! So I did! Now I'm kinda depressed that I don't have another one until 11/23!!

:tomato: Don't think I don't know how blessed I am to live only an hour away from JLA, because I do! And to be able financially to jump on craigslist, snag a pair of $30 tickets (and $15 for parking!!) is definitley a blessing as well! I promise next time all my fangirl-ing pictures won't be focused on my new boyfriend Drew. I'll add some of Howie's Goalie Bootie.

I'm back from my weekend in Nashville. Had SO much fun at the Preds/Habs game! Went to a new restaurant Loo that we may have to try!!!

Road trip!!!! Posted Image Yeah, it wasn't just because of Ryan's talent that I was hoping the Wings would pick him up, back before Jimmy proved he was up to the challenge of the NHL!

Speaking of Jimmy, those gifs are adorable, Beth! Poor Ken Kal. Posted Image

I do too. It's such an interesting contrast with his very young-looking face.
