#2158231 Have you got your RED on?

Posted by 55fan on 26 April 2011 - 01:23 PM

I am being derelict in my duties as the OP which, since Rabs disappears when she's SUPPOSED to be starting these threads, has become my sacred duty.

Here's my threads after Round 1:

Doesn't all that red look nice?

Dawn- I like the beads.

Denverwingsfan13- Have you tried crochet thread? It's a bit stronger. Or perhaps you could braid them like the younglings from Middle Earth do. I'm sure one of them could pop in and give you instructions. (Hint-hint, girls.)

My problem is that some of mine are a bit longer than the others. Do you know how hard it was to get them to line up for a photo? It was like herding first graders. At least they haven't broken yet. In '09 I had a half dozen of my Sunday School kids crawling around under the first five pews searching for beads. We never did find that last F. And you know what happened in '09. :ranting:

Keep the photos, stories, and comments (inane and otherwise) coming!
Best of wishes to our hirsute brethren. They should be itchy by now. :P


#2156394 Wing/hockey dreams

Posted by 55fan on 22 April 2011 - 12:58 PM

I was working in a hotel and the Wings were in town. I was looking for Ericsson, but Helm kept following me around. I tried to ditch him, but he showed up (drunk) at my room. I told him, "I'm not your number any more; I'm Bertuzzi's." He said, "Age is just a number." I told him that was what I was talking about. I'm 44 years old now.

So he came in and the next morning I'm going, "I just ****ed Darren Helm." I went to work in the hotel cafeteria and was keeping a look-out for the Wings because I really wanted to meet Ericsson. I was buttering toast and lagging when a guy asked me for some toast. I said, "Yes, sir, Mr. President." and buttered President Obama's toast.

Everyone around me was "You just buttered toast for the President!" and I was thinking, "I just ****ed Darren Helm." but I didn't want to say it out loud. Then I started wondering who I could tell. Not LGW. I'd be branded a puckbunny. Not any of my friends. They don't like hockey. I thought maybe I'd just send a PM to Loo and leave it at that.

Then my sister (who used to live in Chicago) came up to me and told me that she had just talked to President Obama and they discovered that they had been neighbours. I said, "I just ****ed Darren Helm." She said, "You win."


#2155941 Congratulations to the Phoenix Coyotes

Nice to see that the Red Wings have douchey fans like any other team. It makes us oh, so much more human.

Do you kids not understand the concept of "sportsmanship"? It means not kicking someone when they're down. Sure, you can have an opinion against the Yotes, but that's what the other threads on the board are for.

This is about winning with respect and dignity, which our team commanded throughout the series, and we are now extending to our erstwhile adversaries.

Embarrassing that some kids nowadays have been taught no manners, dignity, grace, or class.

Ok, the wine has been drank, drunk, drinked, drunken, or whatever the heck you say.

And so, I am off to beddy bye.

I am sad that I can not enjoy this game with you folks tonight. I am even sadder that my supervisor will not be taking off the entire night as I had thought. I must now sneak around with my phone in a covert location (I'm thinking pocket) and catch glimpses of the score as I can.

Fare thee well, my friends, and Go WINgs!

I won't say were the Coyotes will be playing next year, but they have a new mascot:

What you see there, he did it.

Even Maltby saw what he did there.

I want Nick's shoes. I've always wanted a pair of Nike Shox but could never afford them.

For some peculiar reason, I've never noticed his shoes in that picture.
