#2205969 Happy belated birthday, hillbillywingsfan

Posted by 55fan on 02 September 2011 - 09:53 AM

We missed someone's birthday on July 11. Now we must all be nice and assuage the hurt feelings.

Dancing produce to the rescue.

(Ya know I'm just teasing. Hope you had a good one, and consider these wishes for a good 33rd year of life.)

He's from Minnesota. It's a Minnesota thing.

#2205864 Cup dropped and dented... again...

Posted by 55fan on 01 September 2011 - 02:23 PM

I caught some heat on facebook for calling that guy a dips***.

One of the responses was "Dont get too mad, your boys in Detroit have dropped it a couple times"

This chick replied with "We've had it so many times, that's bound to happen"

She got a like out of me. Shes hot too.


The dents and bangs and dings are what give it character and a storied history. What other trophy has seen so much as our Stanley?

#2205860 Red Wings Sponsor?

Posted by 55fan on 01 September 2011 - 01:52 PM

Yup, I sat through the Amway presentation once because I didn't know what was coming. My roommate's parents had gotten her into it and she had to bring in so many new prospects according to the "system" or she wasn't following it. I said I'd give it a listen, just to help her out. Freaky.

I'm really not keen on the Red Wings being associated with them, but I guess everyone needs a cash cow.

Now if they can get 5 other teams to agree to the branding, and those teams get 5 teams...

#2205783 I could have made it to the NHL!

Oh, yeah, and I could have made it to the NHL if my skates hadn't been white and had TOE PICKS, and if they hadn't put me in a dang tutu.

#2205640 I could have made it to the NHL!

I could have made it to the NHL if I had been a child living in Canada to a father who was a high school athlete and supported my wish at age three to be a professional goalie when I grew up.

Oh, wait, all of that was true. What stopped me?

I could have made it to the NHL had I not been a GIRL, which forced me from hockey into figure skating as girls were not allowed to play hockey in the little town in which we lived. Nor could I play in the towns to which we later moved as they had no hockey programs.

But the first few years were favourable.

#2205394 St. Louis Blues slogan

Posted by 55fan on 28 August 2011 - 01:39 PM

Hmm... should have used "I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues".

Change the words a little...

I guess that's why they call us the Blues.
Time and again, we do nothing but lose.
Diving like chickens, lose to the others,
Whine to officials like they're our mothers,
And I guess that's why they call us the Blues.

Or something. That was just off the top of my head and it really wasn't very good.

XL in St. Paul has been a treat both times I've been there. Nice people. No problem getting down for pre-game pics. Good time.

I'll be going there again in October! Can't wait!

Have fun with the Nucks!

#2204526 Crosby's 2012 Season now in Question

Posted by 55fan on 19 August 2011 - 05:25 PM

Totally true. I agree with Crosby getting overblown. I'm sure I fall into that fact a little myself.

Far as malts. thats what part of his game that would frustrate me to no end. He would be flapping his gums and then when it would be step up time he would skate off and let other players take the heat. Man just think about being on the ice on the other team with him. hahaha.

<Reads first paragraph. Smirks. Makes mental note about Tony. Gets bad mental picture. Shakes head. Declines comment.>

I miss Malts.

Off topic, but what is that man in the background doing, and to whom?

Crosby kicks puppies.


And misses, then blames it on the officiating claiming he was slewfooted by a passing basset hound.

#2204154 Rick Rypien found dead

Posted by 55fan on 17 August 2011 - 07:22 AM

I have no problem with a loved one feeling anger over a suicide. If you are dependent on a person for emotional or financial support and they voluntarily end their life - how can you not feel anger over it? Depression is a disease like addiction, it can be fatal, but it is also curable.

Very true.

The anger need not even be aimed at the person, but at the cause of death, whether it be disease, accident, murder, or even just natural causes. Regardless of what happened, there is loss of time with that person. There is the loss of that person's future, and how it might have been spent.

Sometimes anger at the person who died is the "safest" emotion because they (or their feelings) can't be hurt by the anger.

Life isn't fair, and when things happen that aren't the way we'd like them to go, there is anger, disappointment, frustration... all sorts of feelings may arise depending on the gravity of the event.

There are a ton of emotions one goes through. None are wrong; only acting inappropriately is wrong. Feeling them is up to the individual.

Edit: clarity

#2203628 Bold predictions for the year!

Posted by 55fan on 13 August 2011 - 08:44 PM

Bold prediction: Geography teachers will worry themselves silly about the confusion it will cause when the SCF involves Winnipeg from the East and Detroit from the West. Students will not notice anything ironic, despite the fact that Doc Emerick will explain the situation in dramatic, yet condescending fashion before, during, and after every single game of the Finals.
