#2178027 Subliminal Sidney Crosby Messages in NHL commercials?

I'm not bent at all. No idea where you get that from.

OK, I get you now. Carry on and have fun.

Oh okay, so you have trouble reading what I wrote? I never said you should be asking to view it, but try to contribute to the discussion so that everyone involved could be a part of it with full knowledge of the material.

And I am not asking for it because, like I said before, I couldn't care less about the attention Crosby is getting. It surprises me that people continue to be up in arms about stupid Crosby getting media attention. GET. OVER. IT.

Oh, saying "Well for starters you should have asked why the commercial hasn't turned up?" in no way implies that I should ask for it. Yeah.

Then you tell me I'm on an anti-Crosby crusade. I'm not.

Now you say you won't ask and don't care less, but you get bent that I am asking what people think in a thread that someone else started? What is up with you?

If people want to love/hate Crosby or love/hate the people who love/hate Crosby, fine. If the topic is a commercial, and I happen to have seen it, I will comment on it. You need not agree with me. You need not disagree with me. But you definitely need not be disagreeable.

You get over it.

Well for starters you should have asked why the commercial hasn't turned up? Since it is hard to discuss something that we can't even see.

So how about that new bigfoot picture that I won't actually show you but expect you to discuss?

Ah, I see. You haven't seen it. It never occurred to me to ask to view a commercial that I had already seen. I would have thought that the people who haven't seen it would be the ones asking for it. I guess you'd rather just jump in and make assumptions. Why let knowledge of the topic (or in my case, the people posting) dictate your opinion?

I'll just wait until someone posts the commercial. Until then, this is (in my mind anyway) just another Crosby thread. I've had my say on those in the past, so I'm out. Enjoy.

Show me a clip and maybe I'll join your "zomg Crosby getting moar attention rage" crusade.

That's a lie. Even if his is the only name showing, who cares?

My crusade? Excuse me? I'm just asking why in 4 pages no one answered the original question. I've seen the commercial. You do see Sidney highlighted.

If the rest of the world would like to post for another 4 pages of Sidney-bashing with a sprinkling of Sidney-love and a few hissy fits thrown in, that's cool with me.

I was just wondering why Crosby, which was the actual topic of this thread. I am not on a crusade. Stop putting words in my mouth and acting like this is all my doing. I am not the OP. Excuse me for actually discussing the question put forth.

The guy's been studying the Bible for 50 years and he missed the parts about Judgment coming "like a thief in the night" and "no one knows, not even the angels in heaven"?

Dude needs another 50 years of studying.

So... in 4 pages, has anyone actually answered the original question?

Why was only Sidney Crosby visible on the Cup? It's pretty blatant. It's not like they just happened to get a shot of the Cup where his name was. Why not some of the great names from the past? Why not just a shot of the Cup? If they just happened to shoot it there, why not show the rest of the team?

Egads! Upon whom shall we now lay blame for our flaws?

#2175696 Congratulations to the Sharks

I hope the Shark fans have gone home. This is getting embarrassing.

You don't have to root for them. Just go through the handshake line or pull a Chelios and vanish into another thread where you can ***** to your hearts' content.

Living in Wild territory, I developed a liking for the guy. Would have loved to have seen him on our side.

He used to sponsor a fight camp to teach kids how to defend themselves if they were in a fight.

RIP, and condolences to his friends and family.

Sharks win 63 to -9.

All Sharks including the back-up goalie and McClellan with hat tricks. Homer gets a "Callbacktrick" in which 9 goals that he didn't score are called back due to goaltender interference.

I drempt that I was Jimmy's goalie coach. I was Yoda-sized and flew around on a little flying carpet. I had him blindfolded and was saying all sorts of Jedi-esque things like, "Feel the flow of the air as the puck leaves the ice and rises. You will know that it is going top shelf. You must learn to feel which way the puck is going. Be one with the air, and you become one with the puck." That kind of drivel.

Nothing really happened. Just a lot of me talking and floating on my magic carpet.

Play like you don't want to have to listen to your fans whine all summer.

#2170323 Can The Wings Win This Series?

Posted by 55fan on 09 May 2011 - 04:05 PM

I understand those who address specific deficiencies such as our defense needing to tighten up, or our offense needing to score more. I'm cool with that.
I understand those who have looked at both teams and decided that the Sharks are better, so they won't be as disappointed if we lose than if we had lost to Phoenix or a lesser team like that. I'm cool with that.

I sort of understand those who see that we're down to elimination games and who throw in the towel early. They're probably young and have never learned that life requires you to grind through to the very end. This is, after all, the immediate gratification generation. It's annoying, but they'll grow up.

What I can't understand is those who have given up and insist on wearing their lack of faith as some sort of badge of intelligence. I don't understand those who belittle the faithful for sticking with a team that is still in the race. I don't understand those who look at the series and say, "Well, we're behind. Time to give up." and then proceed to ridicule those who don't follow their defeatist attitude.

They can suck my hockey stick. I still believe.
