Is it bad that my mind is stuck on Faygo-bago?

#2585241 Mikael Samuelsson announces retirement

Posted by 55fan on 26 March 2015 - 02:06 PM

<sigh>  I loved that guy.  Ever since I was watching that game in 2008 and telling my friend how he never scores, and he did, and I told her how she would probably never see him do it again, and he did, I have loved him.

If you can shock me into silence twice in a few minutes by doing good things, I will love you forever.

Fare thee well, Shinguard Assassin.

My first thought:  That poor girl!  (referring to the mother)


My mother's first thought:  I'm glad that didn't happen to me!


My sister's first thought:  They're going to have to detail that car.

#2583675 Jordin Tootoo's Goal

Posted by 55fan on 21 March 2015 - 10:30 AM

That was a nice goal.  I've been watching some Devils hockey since he went there.  I can't believe that we couldn't find a place for him when he was here.  He does much more than just pester and fight.

They scored more goals than we did.


The person below me has actually won a big prize at the fair.

#2583321 3/20 GDT : Red Wings 1 Tampa Bay Lightning 3

Posted by 55fan on 20 March 2015 - 05:21 PM

I am not a good uncle, but I'm a fantastic Godmother (of the non-fairy variety).


Were I a Fairy Godmother, I would wave my wand and fix Pavel's booboo, give Helm some hands, end Gusgus's cold streak, and give the goalposts little flippers so that when the Red Pings shoot, the puck will go in.


*Said flippers will be at the disposal of the Wings only.  Shots from the other team will be flipped out instead of in.


Speaking of flippers, Happy Birthday, Valtteri Filppula.  May you enjoy a good time after the game.

I'm assuming that Luongo is the starting goalie, but have they decided on an ending goalie?

Beyond belief, although some of you are nice.


The person below me would destroy lots of people if they ruled the world.  (Not talking racist or anything.  Talking about specific people that you'd "Off with his/her head!" kind of thing.)

#2582872 This or That

Posted by 55fan on 19 March 2015 - 02:26 PM

Do...do not is not in my vocabulary.


Garden salad or Caesar salad?

That first sentence blew my mind.


Garden salad, with French.


Dinner buns or breadsticks?

#2582657 Dubnyk a Hart Trophy condender?

Posted by 55fan on 18 March 2015 - 12:07 AM

They were talking during one of the Wild games about him being a Vezina candidate, and I have to admit that my first thought was, "No way, but maybe the Hart."


He's been unreal, but more importantly, the team trusts him, so they are playing better.  That's pretty much what the Hart is all about- most valuable to his team.

We shall win because it's Pi Day!


#2580116 Gus injured; Mrazek re-called

Posted by 55fan on 08 March 2015 - 03:05 PM

At least Mrazek is good.  I feel bad for Gus, and I hope he's ok (or will be), but at least we'll be ok in net.

Just throwing this out there- Someday Jiri Hudler's daughter is going to Google her dad's name and That Picture will come up.

#2579230 Keith being an awesome human being

Duncan Keith may be a Blackhawk, but he's a true hockey player.  He made the wish of a little girl come true.

One of my best friends had CP and so this clip has some special meaning to me.  Kudos to Keith for making her day.
