#2222642 Mickey Redmond Carhartt Commercial voiceover

Posted by 55fan on 04 November 2011 - 07:10 AM

Sounds a little like him. I purposely didn't look to see who you thought it was just so I could see if we were on the same page. The letter "s" comes out just like Mickey, and the accent is similar, but it's not quite.

Of course, it could be Mickey in a different mood...

I blame Shoreline. He just used a form of the word "erect" in the same sentence as "Peter Forsberg" with no qualms whatsoever.

The force of these two incompatible thoughts is throwing off the mental magnetism throughout the globe, causing the Wings to miss the net.

This team is lacking veteran presence.

I blame Gordie and Cheli for retiring so young.

Upon further review, I also blame the Lions and Tigers for having winning seasons and using up all of the "win" in the metro area.

I blame Nick Lidstrom. If Howard is to blame for one loss for having one son, Lidstrom must be to blame for the other four.

#2220477 What's up with Zetterberg?

Wouldn't he be on pace for a -36? :ninja:

Yeah. I don't think it will happen as predicted. No way will he play 81 games.

Me, looking thrilled.

I know I say this to a lot of people, but you don't look anything like your avatar.

#2219816 Huge brawl in the griffs game

<sigh> They're still kids with some learning to do. At this stage in the game, it's the thought and effort that count. Hopefully Downey will do some training with them and teach them the concept of "making contact with the other player's face" when throwing punches.

Still, they showed up, so good on them.

#2219165 10/28 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 2

Zetterberg with the quadruple hat trick.

After being 0-0 after the first period, Babs shakes things up by switching Huds and Z. He also casually mentions that there are rumours of Flip being traded to Philly. Z doesn't hear this as he is busy reading people on LGW saying that he needs to be traded to wake the team up.

Flip panics at the thought of leaving and starts batting the puck away from the net so he doesn't accidentally score a goal which would increase Philly's interest in acquiring him.

Z eats up the loose pucks like a hungry, hungry hippo, and scored 12 goals.

Wings win 12-2. JRHIV is blamed for the 2 goals as he was crying last night in the middle of the night, unlike every other baby on the planet, who lets his daddy sleep so he can be rested for his job.

People still can't believe that Koko is an Alternate Captain until they remember he's in Florida.

Upon seeing the A on his teammate's chest, new panther Mikeal Samuelsson told the organization to go do something thought to be anatomically impossible until the Swedish Olympic Committee did so at his behest in 2010.

Seriously, he's a two-time Stanley Cup Champion. That looks great on a resume. The rest is just details.

Congrats, Kokopuffs.

Howard's wife has had a baby.

Last year, Ozzie's wife had a baby.

The last time Conks was here, his wife had a baby.

Solid proof that even if you f*** around, Detroit will bring out the best in you.

Now's the time to trade Lids and Dats, Kenny, they're both getting older! Quick! Before I have to pop another Xanax or Ritalin!

Didn't we trade them to Tampa for picks, pucks, and Eric Hipple?

#2218628 This team screams for a trade

I'm thinking that someone hi-jacked the OP's account. Or he's under the influence. I know I've given him plusses before. This is out of character.

#2218617 Anyone else have a feeling that we'd lose tonight?

Posted by 55fan on 26 October 2011 - 07:22 AM

Not totally. I was, however, pretty sure that if we didn't, they would.

I hope that he is ok. The guy has a wife and kids who have done me no wrong, so it is my wish, for their sakes, that he recovers, returns to play, and gets to spend a lot of quality time with them, especially from mid-April until September.
