Are you planning on growing a playoff beard? Wearing playoff bracelets? Here's the place to share your stories and pics.
There are many variations and superstitions. Let's hear yours!
Do you shave after the last game of the regular season, or the night before the first game? Is trimming the beard allowed? Do you decorate your bracelets beyond the standard "red=win white=loss"? Have you done either of both of these before?
Now is the time! This is the place!
Personally, I'm doing the bracelets again. I'm sticking with the beads (initials of each player for each goal scored and the goalie if the other team fails to get by him).
I want another year like 2008: I'm excited for the playoffs. GO WINgs!
I'm going with the hamster pledge again, only this year I have a new hamster. Therefore, I pledge $5 for every goal scored by: Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Holmstrom, Lidstrom Kronwall, Cleary Franzen, Filppula, Ericsson Miller, Eaves (IR), White, Bertuzzi
I will keep track in my sig line.
Thanks for doing this again!
Oh, my. I just realized that I made a huge error. I thought I was doing the same thing as I had done last year, but last year it was $1 per goal, not $5.
Well, I do try to keep my word, but I just kind of screwed myself. If I stick with what I said, I may not be able to pay up. So I'm going to stick with what I said, but I'm putting a cap on it: Only one goal per player per series. This caps me at $240 maximum. It's a bit much for me, but that's what makes it exciting.
Ok, I admit the first time I saw it, I missed it too until I know where I was supposed to be looking.
It is entirely possible that the refs thought to themselves, "Did he just... nah, couldn't be. The other guy would have called something that stupid. They'd think I was crazy if I suggested he did something like that."
I want to know what was going on in Clowe's head.
Is he playing today? Or is he in the quiet room until he recovers from his amnesia?
I think Torts and Milbury have hit on something...
Random coaches/players can call out Sidney and then apologize immediately. The message will get out. People will talk about what they said.
Apologizes theses days are a dime a dozen. The standard apology is canned and forced and insincere. Get a good, funny sound bite- rather than just whining- and "apologize" right away a la Larry the Cable Guy.
Remember how you played after St. Louis scored two goals?
Play like that again. Just don't wait until the Devils score two goals.
Don't let them score any. Just play like you did when you were down by two.
Remember that? Yeah. Good times.
Have you ever tried to fight in a skirt? I can barely sit, stand, or breathe in one. There's a reason chicks are lady-like and restrained in a skirt. In a word: pantyhose.
Although I disagree with Mike that Bylsma should have fought. Coaches should leave that to the players and just yell stuff at each other. Suits don't have fight straps, and they probably need dry cleaning, and that's expensive.
Not sure what Milbury expected.
As for sending out the line that he did, I believe that you play to the last horn. If that's how you play when your team is behind, then you play that way whether you're behind by 1 or 11.
