Hah. Just got a look at that. It was pretty rich.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Man I so disappointed I wasn't the first to quote that. That's hilarious.

Great site. Except the part about Fil, obviously. :angry:

If Fil keeps playign like he has these past few games he will have to change his assessment. Fil is an ace lately.

EDIT: speak of the devil... assist.

I don't get the Stuart one...

Andreas Lilja: Have you forgiven him for costing the Wings the Cup in 2007?

Has he not more than redeemed himself? I don't see anyone still ragging on Stuart for Game 7 of the SCF.

The Nick, Howard, and Eaves ones were SPOT ON! This one might have been my favorite though...

Johan Franzen: Did he absolutely manhandle another grown man at least once?

I recall him doing that to a certain Brooks Orpik in the '08 Final.

Of course there would be a guy in a Penguins jersey at a Blue Jackets/Red Wings game. God, these people are everywhere. That picture has jersey foul written all over it.

"Nick Lidstrom - Was he perfect?" :D :D
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Great pic of the "Babcock Death Stare." If you stare back, I hear he might charge you, but apparently nobody's lived to tell about it.

What I'm wondering is, in the picture why is there a Pens fan behind Babcock -- at a CBJ / Det game? Bandwagon fan or so dumb that he thought that was a good idea to do at the Joe?

I can only make fun of this guy because he's wearing a Penguins jersey (now I'll wait for Carman's accusations of jealously). When I was younger I wore a Wings jersey to a Habs Sabres game. We ended up getting picked out of the crowd for some promotion and put on the big screen and I was booed by 20,000 people. Cool experience, but I learned my lesson.

I ended up on the big screen at a Wings/Jackets game in Columbus. Of course I was being booed horribly, but then I lifted my Hank jersey to reveal a Michigan Sucks shirt, and the crowd loved me. One guy bought me a beer on the concourse. Come prepared to pacify the angsty ones.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

Haha funny, but I hate you. Some guy did a gator chomp like a week after the national title game back in 2007 during some on-ice intermission stuff. Immediately like 5 plastic bottles flew on the ice in his direction.
