FIREHOUSE - "When I Look Into Your Eyes"

 

I see forever when I look in your eyes
You're all I've ever wanted
I always want you to be mine
Let's make a promise to the end of time
We'll always be together
And our love will never die

So here we are face to face and heart to heart
I want you to know we will never be apart
Now I believe that wishes can come true
'Cause when I see my whole world
I see only you

Great.  Whatcha got for When I Look Into Your Ears

I dunno, we'll figure it out when one of them retires.  :w00t:

I was wrong about Holmstrom's production in the '98 playoffs; he had 19 points rather than 17, placing him only one point behind Fedorov.

I remember trying to replicate Homer's mid-air game 7 goal vs Colorado in an actual ice hockey game. My stick didn't graze s*** and I fell flat on my sack.

I'm not sure what I'm going to miss most - his presence in front of goalies or Swenglish.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

One thing I won't miss are the bulls**t disallowed goals.

Well you won't have to worry because we don't have anyone with balls to do what he did :confused:

I know.  It was getting to the point where he was getting penalized from the bench.

Farewell Homer, minimal skill, unreal heart, did his job to perfection.


"Hard Work Beats Talent When Talent Refuses to Work Hard"

 

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

I will for sure miss how hysterical he is.  He's got one liner's going left and right.

 

Luc Robataille convinced him to used a curved stick for one game.  He used it, and almost got traded.

 

Ozzie would be talking about everything and nothing at the same time.

 

He's not allowed to use the vacuum or do laundry in his retirement.

 

The video coach would help alter video for Babcock to make it look like Homer was where he was supposed to be.

 

Gave thanks to Al Sobatka for being the best octopus swinger in the league.

 

Gave Paul Boyer a rib for never being able to get the glide on his skates that he wanted.

Fox Sports Detroit better be on the line hooking Homer up with a job as soon as his presser is over.
