Who's going?



#2651148 2/6 GDT : New York Islanders at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

Posted by puckloo39 on 06 February 2016 - 11:01 AM

NHL . com says the game is on at 2 ET.  Someone is going to have to yell extra hard for the first two periods.  Hopefully I'll be home from work to take over yelling duties by the third period.




I will be taking the yelling and cheering duties until you arrive to chime in, K.  See you for the W!

I think the loss of Kronner and Miller (in particular) really shows.  They quietly made room for the scoring chances, and now they're gone.  I am not sure it's so much that our guys can't score, as they can't find room.  Must find a way to adjust for that, somehow.


Iines in here:

Hey, he scored two goals that should impress Wings fans.  He actually went to the net on one goal and actually scored on a breakaway on another.  Two things most of our players don't seem capable of doing.  


More allstar goals than crosby.  :clap:

John Scott has more all-star goals than Sidney Crosby - the "best player in the world".

Epic all-star moment I'd like to see now that Larkin has the fastest skater record -

Phil Kessel is skating with the puck in the O-zone, Larkin strips him of the puck, goes back on a breakaway and buries it. Brent "Chewy" Burns is mic' d up - "He just did the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs!"

Wait what's the difference between the fastest skater comp now and what it used to be?

Dylan Larkin exists.

The boo to cheer ratio / bestowing was interesting...  Good job, Nashville.

I know a lot of you don't like the All Star Skills Competition or All Star game but I'd decided to start this thread for those who do and want to comment.


Go Dylan!!!

#2650549 Amusing stories you have heard or lived.

Posted by F.Michael on 30 January 2016 - 03:42 AM

Having 3 boys can be both fun, and frustrating (7, 6, and 4).


This past summer my wife got us a 'family pack' discount at a local bowling alley.


While the wife was at work I took the boys bowling...After standing in line to get shoes for nearly 15 min (large groups that day for whatever reason) I was eager to get the shoes on my sons, and start bowling.


There's a bar/restaurant attached to the bowling alley, and someone fired up the jukebox...I'm sitting - bending over at the waist to tie my shoes when Queens 'Another One Bites The Dust' is playing over the sound system...My eldest, and youngest sons both erupt in laughter...I look up to see what's so funny - only to find my middle child with his shorts/underwear pulled down to his ankles, and he's spreading his ass cheeks to the beat of the music.


Luckily we were in lane 1, and the other parties were several lanes over so they didn't see the free show :lol:



Now imagine seeing your child spreading his butt cheeks to the beat of the 1st twenty seconds of the song!

And for those of you who like to read spooky stories, I love killing time on reddit/nosleep.

I HATE no sleep.
If they were to classify them in their own fiction/non-fiction sub reddits, I would like it. I enjoy reading scary spooky stuff, but I don't like investing my time in made up ghost stories. And they all drag on so damn long, starting off intriguing (as long as you suspend disbelief) only to turn into the most unbelievable, clichéd horror movie fall backs that they possibly could.
I like hearing things people have actually experienced, not reworkings of horror stories that have been written/filmed thousands of times. Ha. That sub reddit severely pisses me off.

I'm also interested in cryptids, or creepy creatures, like ghosts, skin walkers, chimeras, chupacabras and all that. But mixing them like you've actually had encounters with them into fictionalized stories annoys me when I go into it thinking it actually happened.

I don't get scared by made up stories, what gives me the creeps is the stuff that could be true, or leads credence to something truly unknown.
Creepy pasta is fun when I want to read a scary story, but that's not scary, they're cool. And that's what makes me so mad about nosleep, like I don't want to read half a book about something I'm interested in hearing real stories about that's Competely made up. its like reading fan fiction, sometimes I want to appreciate the story telling of an unknown author, but if I'm looking to actually be creeped out, I want actual experiences.

Ya know what Im saying?

This topic is right up my street, and outside of this community, I was the co-founder and current admin for a long running paranormal research and discussion forum that has now evolved into a weekly radio broadcast on a popular talk radio network. The guy I originally found the site with is the host and it's like a poor man's version of Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell, he interviews people weekly, from authors, to cryptid and UFO witnesses, and even Native American Shamans. 


I'm at work so I can't divulge too deep right now, but i'll post up some stories and experiences in the coming days, and the root of where my interest was founded.

Any chance Dennis Wideman gets in? 

only if the opposing 3-3 team is made of referees.
