I'm not a guy. You got the rest right, though.

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)

I was doing the simple embroidery thread tied around my wrist, but they keep breaking =/

I am being derelict in my duties as the OP which, since Rabs disappears when she's SUPPOSED to be starting these threads, has become my sacred duty.

Here's my threads after Round 1:

Posted Image

Doesn't all that red look nice?

Dawn- I like the beads.

Denverwingsfan13- Have you tried crochet thread? It's a bit stronger. Or perhaps you could braid them like the younglings from Middle Earth do. I'm sure one of them could pop in and give you instructions. (Hint-hint, girls.)

My problem is that some of mine are a bit longer than the others. Do you know how hard it was to get them to line up for a photo? It was like herding first graders. At least they haven't broken yet. In '09 I had a half dozen of my Sunday School kids crawling around under the first five pews searching for beads. We never did find that last F. And you know what happened in '09. :ranting:

Keep the photos, stories, and comments (inane and otherwise) coming!
Best of wishes to our hirsute brethren. They should be itchy by now. :P

Thanks, I figured it would look ok with my professional dress at work.

I could never imagine doing what you are Karen, and you get +1000 for taking a picture of them, I had a hard time taking one of mine so I gave up. I concerned mine might not be big enough for all the beads, I might have to use a longer thread.

Aren't we all looking lovely with all our red beads and bracelets? Here's a little more positive energy as we start the next round.

Too much tying and untying, I'm worried about mine but it's holding up pretty well. I have a heck of a time untying it to put a new bead on.

Not to get off topic, but that's really gross. Sorry to your significant other. It had to be said.Posted Image
The beads are cool. Lets hope those with the necklaces you have them all the way around by the end of the finals.

You get all in a huff about some one saying something a little gross and you have the nerve to post under the handle plopster? Now, that's unsettling! I feel bad for your significant toilet

Hi all. I am not much on posting but I am a fantastic lurker. This is usually the first place I come after a hard day at the office. There is nothing better than reading new posts on the Boys. I love the bracelet idea so I borrowed it. I used a red crystal for every goal scored. I separate the scores with a white/clear crystal when they win and a black crystal for win they lose...DEMMIT!!!! Each series will have a slightly different design to keep them all straight. This has been so much fun. Especially since I live in Chicagoland and am the lone Red Wing fan pretty much everywhere I go. I have really enjoyed letting my friends know I am adding a new bracelet while the Hawks are adding another bag tag to their golf clubs! Thanks for all the fun.

Awesome!
I love the way we are all getting so creative!

Keep up the good work, and hopefully the Wings will keep up their end of the deal!

Silly Blackhawks fans. Brooms are for Red Wings.

I got to show my bracelets to my manager at my weekend job this morning. He's from Detroit, but he's been on vacation so he hasn't seen them. He thought they were cool.
