I really hoped that you guys would have finally done the bracelets on their own this year. Its cool enough. It has enough clout. I don't get the insistence on riding along on the coat-tails of beards. Its not the same at all. Bracelets may even be cooler.

Here's to hoping next year, the bracelets are sported with the pride they deserve, but for now I'll just go back to having an itchy face for God knows what reason...

Cool enough. Basically the only reason that bracelets and beards are linked is that they are both playoff traditions. Just giving credit where it is due to the beards for being first.

Kind of like putting a dead tree in your living room and eating candy out of your socks. They have nothing to do with each other, but they're both things that you can only get away with in December.

Good luck with the beard. May it grow for many weeks.

What do you mean "on their own?" I'm pretty sure we did do them on their own.

Please don't be that guy. You know what I mean.

My bad. I mentioned beards in the OP. At least I didn't use the word "alternative" in the title. That attracts "those guys" more than anything.

So we have bracelets. Let's rock them!

Go Wings!!!

Great job on the bracelets. Good luck with that too, like last season, and hopefully more people use bracelets and compare it to beards just to piss off hockeysattva and his beard stupidity as much as possible. I vividly remember his tantrum last year and good for you for sticking up for your own tradition.

Yeah, very excited to add a red bracelet. Just don't know how I'm going to fit all my letter beads on there for each guy's initials who scored. But I can't complain, although I might run out of H's and Z's pretty soon if this keeps up! :hehe:

You're doing initials too? COOLNESS!!!!!

I went in to buy red thread and they didn't have embroidery floss, but they had crochet thread, which is actually easier to thread the beads on. It's also cheaper per foot than floss.

Wasn't it fun putting on all of those letters last night?

One thing I also do with the letters is if a goalie gets a shutout, he gets his initials on the bracelet as well.

The first year we did these, I had to run out to Wallyworld like 5 times because I ran out of F's thanks to Flip and Mule.

Holding out for the end of the series. Then I can fix the ones that are bad (white ones need replacing, but I "can't" do it until we get through this round.

Go Wings!!!

So have you folks been getting questions about your bracelets? Mostly I've been getting, "oh, you're wearing your bracelets again". I guess it is officially a tradition!

One of the girls I work with commented that my "sleeve" was back. Last year, as I kept adding more, she said pretty soon I would have a sleeve of bracelets. Ha ha. Here's to the sleeve!

Punch them in the face (with your bracelet'ed hand) if they say anything. They'll change their way of thinking in .5 seconds ;)

I decided to go with beads on a chain instead of bracelets. I was thinking string bracelets would get kind of grody before very long, and since the plan is to have them go until June, I wanted something a little more durable. I'm still holding to the red for a win, white for a loss, though. Here it is after I added the white bead for today's game. (Sob!)

all the daycare kids noticed they were back, every time they see me they have to examine my wrist. I think in 3 years now I've only had one person I didnt know comment on them, and they said they were nice or something haha
