#2674799 Official - Little Caesars Arena

Posted by 55fan on Yesterday, 06:20 PM

We're all overlooking the simple solution:  Out-bid them.  The place hasn't been finished yet, so if one of the people who are "outraged" by this offered more than the expected price, that person would have the naming rights.


Oh, no one has the money?  Neither did Mike and Marian until they started Little Caesar's and earned it.

That's beautiful.  I hope you don't mind if I use it. 
I'll also let Mary, Steve's wife see it.  In fact, I think I'll use it on facebook too.  I'll be sure to give you credit.

#2673688 Who gets the "A" when datsyuk leaves?

Abby has taken more of a vocal role with the media.  He also seems to be more of a locker room voice as he matures.  I think he gets the next A.  Larkin will get one eventually unless he is just a flash-in-the-pan, which I doubt will be the case.  He certainly looks like the real deal.  I hope his locker is next to Z's like Z's was next to Stevie's back in the day.

In all honesty, that's why I don't go into the GDT unless we're running away with a game.  I hit the GDT to admire Mikey & Co's handiwork and maybe some pre-game comments.

There's a huge difference between "That was a bad turnover; X has been bad these last few weeks." and "Xf****** sucks!  If Kenny resigns him, Kenny should be fired!  Kennyf****** sucks!  This whole teamf****** sucks!" and on and on with the sucking posts.

It gets to be like a pile-on when everyone is doing it, and that's all that's being done.  Sometimes I even ignore the people I usually watch with if it gets too bad.


If the conversation is like a bunch of friends having a beer and talking about the game, that's great.  If it sounds like a bunch of drunk girlfriends bitching about their men, it's not so fun.  I can't speak for a mod, but I'd bet that's the distinction that was made.

#2673365 We all know if you're a Hawks fan your upbringing was questionable

There's rudeness all around, but if we can catch the Hawks fans in the act, I say we roll with it.

#2673305 WCQF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues

You have one job, Blues.

Just get rid of Chicago.

After that... who cares?

I feel that tonight is the night Tatar will bust loose.  You can tell he wants it so badly.

I'm an idiot.  I just now realized that this is one of those polls where you click on a box and not just comment.  Ok, my vote has been officially cast.

#2669846 Was Moving To The East Worth It?

Posted by 55fan on 16 April 2016 - 04:50 PM

Not the be-all and end-all, but there is the factor of familiarity.  We knew the West teams better because we played them more often, and we played them in the playoffs.  Notice how we're more familiar with the Lightning than, say, Montreal. 


I think after a few more years, we'll be as aware of each East team's strengths and weaknesses as we were of the West's. 


Then, maybe, we can fix the rest.

#2669078 Money On The Board - 25 years worth of playoffs style!

I'm going to amend mine to $1 per point, rather than goal, by my boys.  The rest remains.  Now I at least owe some money. :)

This was my "theory" on Rey's parentage.  It is not meant to be taken seriously.

I'm going with #4.  All were great and I loved them all, but when I first saw #4 I thought "This is awesome." so I'm going with the one that gave me the best first impression.
