My friend Denise turned 65 and retired last week. Her kids and grandkids surprised her with a party. She is happy and healthy and surrounded by loved ones.

Two years ago, she was surrounded by loved ones as well. She was sick, weak, and bald from the chemo, and they didn't know if she'd make it.

I love a happy ending.

#2127005 'History Will Be Made' Ad Campaign Is Coming Back!

You can view the newest 4 here: http://www.broadcast...Video_Promo.php

I can not believe that the re-dubbed Kane's goal from last year's finals to make it seem like the call happened at the same time of the goal.

Stop trying to rewrite history! We all know how it went down!

Seriously was one of the most confusing and anticlimactic moments in SCF history.

Maybe that's what they mean by "History will be Made".

Any bets that as soon as the Penis are out of it, there'll be a "What if Sidney hadn't been concussed?" commercial?

#2126157 3/5 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Coyotes 5 (SO)

We need more octopi thrown on the road. We won the games with them and lost the proceeding ones where there were none....

Disagree. Octopi should not be thrown on the road. They should be thrown on the ice.

And only during the playoffs. Tradition. Respect it.

Please, Wings. Win this one.

It's funny, I called him out halfway through his 5 goals game for being wayyyyyy too inconsistent and I got ostracized, now it's the cool thing to do.

Trendsetters and visionaries are never understood in their own time.

Mule has the infuriating ability to float in a 2-1 loss, and then get a hattie in a 9-2 blowout.

Streaky streaky streaky. But I'll take it. Goals is goals.

Maybe now that the Eddie is out in the world, Mule will relax a bit. He said that it doesn't effect him on the ice, but there is always the subconscious.

#2125368 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by 55fan on 03 March 2011 - 04:22 PM

1966-present: Wings will win the Cup! Lions will win the Superbowl!

Seriously, 2008 was the only time that I felt that it was destiny. Something about Mac coming back felt Kharmic.

#2124187 I've decided-Datsyuk for Captain

Posted by 55fan on 01 March 2011 - 11:52 AM

Lids will not be around forever. Yes, it sucks. It sucked with Stevie, but that is how life is.

There is no reason that Pavel does not deserve to be the Captain once Lids retires. There is also no reason that Hank does not deserve it. However, unless we rotate the C, only one gets it.

Bashing people for suggesting Pavel is entirely lame. He would do a great job.

Hank will be the one getting it. He has more of a "captain" persona. It's no slight to Pavel. Coming in second to Hank is no insult.

Z has a hot wife, he gets it.


Svetlana is very pretty too.

Hank gets it because Pavel has a silly side that he'd have to keep deeply hidden should he become captain. Once Hank gets the C, the comedy will fly. Pavel will be pranking him six ways from Sunday. Hilarity will ensue. You heard it here first, folks. Pavel is just to impish for the C. It would be like giving it to Homer.

Won't be able to watch/follow this, game starts past my bedtime. Here's hoping for a Wings victory regardless.

Stack the Floyd albums deep to play all night. Just to be safe.

#2122359 2/26 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Sabres 2 (SO)

Posted by 55fan on 26 February 2011 - 10:08 AM

Miller finally gets one past his brother. Mikey Mo reminds us why we wanted him in the first place. Mule scores one to take his mind off the lovely Cecilia and her condition.

Joey Mac uses that Eastern Conference experience to soundly crush the life out of what begins as a spirited effort but ends with the realization on the part of the Sabers that attempts at offense are futile.

Wings win 3-1 (Ryan Miller scores one after Drew scores his, just because that's what brothers do.)

The Miller brothers do not fight because one is a Red Wing.

Draper's youngest was born right before the 2008 Cup and it made for a really cute pic.

Just sayin'.

No, dear. A girl's favourite thing in the world is yambags.

We don't like douchebags.

Would that I had a hundred zillion plusses for Shoreline's post.

Go Wings.

Babcock tells them that the clock is wrong and that there is always one more minute than they think there is. No last-minute goals=win.

#2119065 Hudler seems like a heck of fisherman

Posted by 55fan on 19 February 2011 - 01:17 PM

Looks like the perfect time to trade him... Value has never been higher!!!
Too bad the Whalers were not still in the league! We could get like five first round picks from them! :hehe:

Heck, with Hudler's fishing skills we could get 5 1st round picks, 3 prospects and a backup goalie in exchange for Hudler and an actual whale.

#2118436 Octopus Twirling in Tampa Bay?

Posted by 55fan on 18 February 2011 - 02:02 PM

Were it not for the Stevie factor, I would not be happy with the throwing of the Octopus outside of the playoffs. Even so, it's still iffy.

The twirling, on the other hand, is hilarious.
