#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.

Oh, I missed it. Oh, well...

Happy Birthday Plus A Day!


#2203099 The person below me game...

Posted by 55fan on 10 August 2011 - 06:46 AM

I made one when I was a kid, but it didn't fly.

The person below me laughed like crazy the first time they saw this commercial:
Hmm, now why on earth did that pop into my head?


#2202729 No more Versus

Posted by 55fan on 06 August 2011 - 04:14 PM

who cares. they fired on ice reporters like Charissa Thompson and Lindsay Soto, and hired Pierre McGuire as replacement. a name change won't help that.

BTW, ESPN just hired Charissa Thompson, and she's going to have her own show there... wonder who wins in this exchange

I don't know. Her roots need touching up. Pierre never has that problem. Aside from that, I'd say that Charissa wins.

A- Tatar (until he gets injured)
A- Exelby (until he gets injured)
A- Janik (until he gets injured)
A- Hudler (won't get injured; will instead lead the team in scoring)

#2201311 Mike Commodore: Wear Red Wings Jersey #64

Posted by 55fan on 27 July 2011 - 05:07 PM

I didn't even know what a Commodore 64 was until people explained it here, but now I have to admit that I'm disappointed. I like numbers that aren't the run-of-the-mill type things. It's cool that he did the charity thing, though.

Go in. Do your time. Move on. Just like the rest of us.

Congrats on a great career, Drapes. You will be fondly remembered and terribly missed.


#2200694 pat kane in rehab for being a coke head, and idiot

Posted by 55fan on 24 July 2011 - 08:21 AM

It's so odd. Every time this comes up on the forum home, it only shows a certain number of characters in the thread title, and it reads "pat kane in rehab for being"

If only.


#2200569 Oh Garth Snow, you're silly

First Jagr. Now Yashin. Who's next to make a comeback? Lindros?

Crosby :ninja:


#2200544 The Real Osgood Question

Posted by 55fan on 23 July 2011 - 08:46 AM

Is he as good as or better than Sawchuck?

This is a valid question, and one I've been pondering since discussion came up about this.

If it is agreed that Osgood is better, then he belongs up with Terry. If not, I really don't think so.

I can't come to a good conclusion. The eras were different. Terry played with no back-up and through all sorts of pain and injuries and troubles. Terry's life was tragic, as was his death.

All of this makes it hard to have an objective comparison as to which is better, and if Ozzie belongs there.

My heart says yes. My head says no. My stomach says go cook some spaghetti.


#2200541 Draper or Hudler?

Posted by 55fan on 23 July 2011 - 08:34 AM

About f'in time this poll went the right way! I can't even believe it was this close, let alone tipped the other way this long...

You forgot to factor in the time zones. When the poll came out Mrs. Hudler, Grandma Hudler, and the Russian Hookers were all asleep or working.

Great post. Thanks for putting the time into that reply. :clap:

People get tired of talking about it, but I don't feel people realize what's really going on, and i'm glad you seem to have your "eyes wide open" on the situation. :thumbup:

Not a problem. The aliens beamed it down from the Mothership that fabricated Obama from left-over DNA from their home planet. The government is now in their hands. They want us to question authority so that there will be anarchy. We are doomed.


(I'm just kidding, btw.)


#2200192 Blackhawks star Kane has fractured wrist

Posted by 55fan on 21 July 2011 - 05:14 PM

If a player needs rehab, that is a personal problem for the player and is none of our business. For a normal, average, everyday person, the thought of entering rehab and having family, friends, coworkers, and people in general finding out is tough enough. For someone in the public eye, it is magnified a thousandfold.

Not only do you have your boss, the chatty lady at the next work station, the librarian, and the church ladies looking at you differently, you also have total strangers judging you when they really know nothing about you except for a few sound bites here and there.

It would be much easier for the player to go in anonymously, and then, after having dealt with the original problem, decide how to handle it publicly. The initial outing could be enough to drive a person away from getting needed help.

If you've not been there, you have no idea.

Our "right to know" does not extend to their personal lives. They may be public figures, but they are people too, and their lives and families are far more important than whether we'd opt to have them on our fantasy team.

If they need privacy, they deserve it just like any other person; and being in the public eye, they need it more.
