Yes, it's our favorite time of year, folks! For those of you who know how this works, pledge early and often. For those of you who don't, those who want to participate figure out some kind of financial pledge having to do with the Wings playoff performance. Some pledge a buck a goal for certain players, some pledge per win, per series, per shutout, or any combination. Get creative! Don't get too complicated though, because it gets hard to keep of. Post your pledge here so we can shamelessly "plus" your post. When it's not possible to add any more to the kitty, everyone Paypals me their total and I make a donation.
Now, all but one year we have donated to Children's Hospital. I'm fine if everyone wants to keep it that way, but I'd like to suggest we send this season's donation to a local charity started by a 12-year-old when he was 9. He spends every single Saturday feeding the homeless in Detroit. I've been following him on Facebook for quite a while now and he's starting to get a lot of press. All signs point to this being a legit charity. Check out the Eimers Foundation here and here. When you pledge, vote for either Children's Hospital or the Eimers Foundation; both are worthy recipients, so I certainly won't be offended either way.
In October if someone told us we'd finish 3rd in the division (assuming we hold on tonight), we'd all be thrilled! We moved up a couple spots compared to last season. I think the Wings accomplished their goals for the year. Let's see what happens in the playoffs!
Can we just agree that none of the mods here are "real fans"?
I mean, Harold is a Kings fan/slappy and the rest of the mods never post anymore. Obviously, they couldn't handle the mediocrity of this team.
We are still here, but we lurk behind closed doors and meddle in new ways to unfairly single out the ones we don't like and torture them as much as possible. It's followed by at least a 3 hour session in front of the mirror flexing our muscles and telling each other how tough we are.
Then we laugh. Hard.
On topic, i'm pleasantly stunned by how well you little whipper snappers are handling yourselves in this thread, Carry on.
Also Jimmy, thanks for the reminder, your new sig is incoming.
