Wonderful photos. And not just wonderful subject matter, although that helps. You did a really good job on them.

Thanks for posting!

Awesome pictures! I love how pink and happy everyone looks.

I got to meet Darren McCarty last night-- he was signing autographs at the Walleye game. He was so nice! It was pretty obvious that he really loves interacting with fans. I wasn't able to get a picture because the handlers were running everyone off so fast, but Mac was very careful to take time to smile and say hi to each individual person in line. He gently chastised me for calling him "sir" instead of D-Mac or Darren. So I've been chastised by one of the greatest goons to ever play the game. Posted Image And now one more of my many bobbleheads is autographed, and Casey had a total fanboy moment because Darren signed his jersey with "To Casey, your pal, Darren McCarty #25." It was all pretty awesome.

I'll have some pictures to post soon from Thursday's game. It wasn't a great game, but the warmup pictures were good, and Jimmy Howard actually made eye contact with me twice. Granted, he was going into Goalie Mode, so he may not have registered me as human, but still!

That's great Jenny! We were at the Whalers game Friday and my friends daughter said that D-Mac tweeted that he was at the game.


Can't wait for your pictures :)

Thanks Offsides

The rest of the album is here.

And I must give credit where it's due and say that Casey took all of these (except the two of him in the album, of course). I had nothing to do with it because I was too busy watching everything!

All the best to our big man, Commie. He is a class act, on and off the ice, and I will miss him a lot. Just hope he is OK in TB. Stevie will look after him.

:bye2:

How awesome of you to come in here, not be afraid of all the estrogen, and to actually NOT accuse us of being a bunch of puckbunnies! Thank you!

I've gotta get off my butt and upload the pics from the Wings/Hawks game a week ago. I'm such a slacker....

It's always nice to have a bit of testosterone in here not generated by the boys. Hard to believe this thread has lasted 1000 pages and ten years (almost!). Who knew???

Say "hello" to Drew!

He moved for the other pics, so here's the only good one so far. He was nervous and trying to get settled in, so I will just let him be for now. Loo got a better shot on her cell, but I don't know how to put cell pics onto the computer.

Here he is: Andrew Patrick Ian Todd
Posted Image

There was one that was dark like the others I have had, but he reminded me so much of Johan that I decided to go with a white one. It fits. White... Ian...white hair...Drew. Right?

Now all we have to do is get Eaves back and playing so they can all score a goal and I can get a hamster trick. I've never done it before, but I think it would be cool.

EDIT: Here's the one from Loo. Thanks, Loo!

My sister had me brainstorming for names when I called to tell her about Johan's passing. I decided to wait until I could walk by the place where Johan's cage had been without expecting to see him.

Speaking of things that are small and cute:

I think my favorite out of the Wings group is this one of Nick Lidstrom.

He'd have been what, maybe 10 years old at most? And STILL looks like he's totally in control of everything!

One of my friends found one of Pasha the other day. I wish they'd let me post it here. It's so sweet. Even as a wee one those eyes were simply haunting.

I still haven't uploaded my pictures from Nov. 8/11 against the Avs., Dec. 31/11 against the Blues and Jan. 25/12 agains the Canadiens... I'm a major slacker, although they are up on my facebook page.
