Addendum:  After wishing like crazy that Mule would bury a third puck last night, I have decided to add the following:

 

An additional $5 for a hat trick scored by a player after whom I've named a hamster.

Well, last night's game was great, except for losing DeKeyser.  And I had him in for $5 for each point.  So I'll make like Babs, and adjust my lineup.

Instead of $5 for each DeKeyser point, I'll change it to $5 for each Abby point, and add $20 to my total for the 4 points Danny would have gotten.

GO WINGS!!!

I updated my first post and sig, but wanted to add that I will be factoring in multi-goal games as well-double for two goals, triple for a hatty, etc. Last night Mule cost me $5.76 with just his two goals, hopefully he keeps it up and breaks the bank!

Not trying to sound skeptical here, but how do we know our money is going to charity? I know it's not a ton of money, but it would be nice to know that my money isn't going into the pocket of a mod on LGW (who curiously hasn't posted their own donation on this thread). I truly don't think there is a scam going on here. I'm just wondering if there is any way to prove or verify where this money is going, cause I'm sure that would entice a few more ppl into donating (myself included).

I have the board administrator's verification, stated my pledge and gave you the option to make out a check to Children's Hospital.  I think I've covered everything. We're all waiting on your pledge now.  

 

 

To 55fan, troubadour and Peadydog, thanks so much for really going out of your way to help make this successful.  



I've given before.  She once posted a thank-you that she got.

 

She's gone to quite some trouble to find a good charity that would take our donation.  Plus I think that there are people on here who know her personally and can vouch for her.  Of course, then you have to find people who will vouch for them...

I'll vouch for you.


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.

If I remember correctly, one of the years we all saw the thank-you letter from the charity that received our money.

This is for real, so go ahead AND PUT YOUR MONEY ON THE BOARD!!

Not so much as a single dollar last night.  $5 if Abby escapes the Shanaban.

 

EDIT after the fact:  Well, that didn't do diddly.  Just proves that Shanny hates children :ninja:

 

Hopefully we will regroup, rally, and get some cash for this as well as some wins.

I think I should have picked something less abstract... due to interruptions or generally not paying well enough attention I don't have an accurate count of Mick's Mickeyism's.... I will probably just guesstimate an amount and donate when all is said and done. That being said, he has been surprisingly mum on his typical colorful remarks... at least when I have been paying attention.

I need to make an addendum as well Karen! Since it looks like Toots may not reinserted in the series, I would like to offer Bert his money on the board. So, 2 bucks for every Bert fight, 2 bucks for every Bert goal AND since OT has been a pattern, I want to add 5 bucks for any RED WINGS OT winner. LET'S GO RED WINGS!!!!

Yeah, that was a tough one - a beer or two and counting is futile.

 

Vladifan is on vacation and has asked me to track her total, which is much easier - she's up to 45 bucks already.

Good thing the Ducks scored that last goal.  That makes Val's the GWG, which means $10 more for the kids!

 

Go Wings!  Up to $23 right now.
