My grandparents live 5 minutes away from the Devil's Soup Bowl. Love that place. Awesome that you brought it up.



Ha! Was one of my favorite places to ride in the Lower Penn.


Oh, and incase you can't tell by my avatar, since my bike is black with red and white, I usually wear a Wings practice jersey when trail riding my GasGas (which is a lot!).

My housemate had never seen the March 26, 1997 game in its entirety, so I brought it out and put it on for her the other night. She loved it.

Baseball, my family and friends, some good books, music, decent weather......lots of things. Off-seasons aren't really a pain for me, because they're going to happen whether we win or we lose. I actually enjoy the break, it lets me catch up on some things that I tend to neglect during the season.



ha ha ha a good book you must be bored. You know they make those in video form called movies now so they arent boring.

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

How is everyones answer not boozing it up like maf***as? Jesus, how else do you spend a summer! :lol:



I guess some of us are inspired enough to find better, more productive things to do than get drunk.

Careful, it's an awfully long fall down from that high horse of yours. :rolleyes:

Oh, yeah. I forgot about that one. I've been drinking, gambling, and shaving my armpits.

Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

How am I dealing with the off-season? Watching a lot of Red Wings game highlights, trolling blackhawks fans, and going to the beach. Sometimes I go up to the bar or go to the occasional bonfire, too.

No high horse, more like a family full of alcoholics.

I empathize, but don't hate on a hearty buzz. :)

I'm a Baseball and Football fan too, so I'm following the Tigers, and the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League.

I have to admit, I've not missed Hockey one bit. I love the summer so I'm never in a hurry for the NHL to get going again. However, when October hits, I'm always looking forward to watching the Wings again.
Lets Go:
Red Wings
Tigers
Roughriders
Lions
Spartans

Spent today in a boat cruising up and down the Saginaw River between Bay City and Saginaw. Saw tall ships, snowy egrets, great blue herons and two bald eagles. Nice day to be out...I only wish we had a Red Wings flag to fly on board.

Bought a house down here in Texas in early may, my primary goal since I moved in was to get my Red Wings man cave complete (and my girlfriend has been surprisingly supportive). This room will serve as the media room, movies , NHL 10age, and of course Wings games come October. The room is about done for the time being and I think it turned out pretty good, as years pass and new items are obtained they will be added as well. The only thing that needs to be added is a goal horn for the room, whenever my dad can get back down here from Michigan he has an idea on how to hook it up. I'll try to get some pics posted to see what you guys think and if you have any ideas.

Been busy with a lot of things,but found myself watching a few old Wings Weeklies that I have on DVR and the Fedorov 5 goal game. Like someone else said it is kind of nice to have some kind of break though. You need to recharge your batteries.
