#2186045 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

My brain says that he can still contribute and that if the price is right, it might be a good thing. There's certainly no harm in talking about it.

My heart says that he's far more likely to go back to Pitts since he played there.

My hormones say YES! YES! YES!


#2185068 Latest Rumor: NHL Team Expected to Announce Rebranding in 2012

Posted by 55fan on 14 June 2011 - 08:07 AM

They will decide that "Kings" is sexist and will rename them the "Monarchs". They will have a butterfly as their logo. The colour purple will be their primary colour in their uniforms. Once pro-democracy protesters have their say against "Monarchs", they will be known as the Queens which, with the purple uniforms, will bring in a whole new crowd to the sisterhood of Puckbunnies.


#2185065 SCF: Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks

Vancouver with the Cup; Thomas with the Conn Smythe.

That's my prediction, and I'm sticking to it.

The Florida Panthers will become known as the Miami Heat. It will bring in more fans due to name recognition, and they can just use the same players since neither team can play hockey.

#2182725 Anyone else annoyed with the new Arby's commercial?

Posted by 55fan on 05 June 2011 - 11:43 AM

I love Arby's sandwiches. The antidepressant chicken salad sounds good. I also love the hallucinogenic curly fries.

#2180851 Storm: the 'genderless' baby.

Posted by 55fan on 29 May 2011 - 02:25 PM

Gender is what we make of it. I've always been a jeans-wearing, pick-up driving, snus-chewing heterosexual woman whose heart's desire is to play goalie in the NHL. I am a female. I have male attributes and female attributes. The key is being comfortable in your own skin without going so overboard that you shove it in people's faces annoy the crap out of them.

I immediately thought of this case having seen an interesting documentary on it. Part of the documentary involved the discovery of a very small part of the brain which seems to tell the person what gender they are. Interesting stuff, but nothing to mess with a kid about.

My cousin had 6 kids. The 4 in the middle are about the same age. 3 are girls; 1 is a boy. When the boy was little, he wanted everything his sisters had- long hair, princess dresses, ribbons, etc. When he was 3, they were at Disney World and he begged for a Tinkerbell costume. They happened to be there during "*** Days" and there was no shortage of male couples offering to buy it for him. His parents declined the offers.

He is extremely tall for his age, and if the height estimates are right, he will end up at around 6'9" and 320 pounds (assuming he is not overweight). At that point, his parents figure he can wear all the Tinkerbell outfits he wants.

Still have some Sammy love going on here. Would like to see the Ugliest Swede Line (even if they're not playing together, I like calling them that) raise the Cup. Definitely feel for them not having won in 40 years. I picked them at the beginning of the playoffs as my team to root for should evil things happen to the Wings. Not the same as picking them to win, so I'm pleased that they've come this far.

Canuckleheads in 6. Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

#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.


#2178022 Subliminal Sidney Crosby Messages in NHL commercials?

Posted by 55fan on 21 May 2011 - 07:49 PM

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.
