#2083419 So who remembers the 85-86 season?

Posted by 55fan on 23 December 2010 - 10:18 AM

Those were my heavy drug years. Didn't get clean until '87. Had I known that somewhere in NS Sid the Kid was being born, I might not have sobered up.

In all honesty, that was before I had internet and cable tv. Following the team was next to impossible. I just knew from some of dad's friends who still had family in Detroit that things weren't going well, but that we had some new kid that was going to save the day.

Being a Lions fan, I didn't believe it.

For all of you who sat through the games, cheered on the team, and believed that someday they would rise again, I salute you. You are the backbone of the team.

Wear safety goggles, raincoat, condom, and galoshes... You should be safe from the creme fraiche then

What is this MASTER BS?

Are you like a sissy boy who dresses up in woman's panties, gag ball in your mouth, and like being dominated?

The use of the title Master is a time-honoured tradition when addressing boys under the age of 13.

#2081435 Little Things That Make You Happy

Going Christmas caroling. We went out to carol for a 103-year-old lady from church. She lived on her own until she was 102, then she fell so she moved in with her daughter on her farm. She is mentally sharp as ever, but she has been using a wheelchair lately.

Since they live 40 miles out, they don't get to church much in the winter. So we went out to her.

She's just the sweetest lady, and we had fun doing it.

If she's 20 now, she'll be 21 in less than a year. Start by e-mailing and writing letters and stuff. By the time she's old enough to hang out you'll know if she has good spelling and sentence structure and grammar and all that stuff.

If she's good, go for it.

I celebrate Christmas. Not x-mas. Not some vague holiday. Not some season that happens to have a day in the middle of it whose name cannot be mentioned because not everyone wants to celebrate it, but everyone wants a reason to celebrate.

You want a holiday in the middle of winter with no religious association? One where you can have a nice party and celebrate things like family and happiness and light and sharing and giving? Cool. All of those are good things that should be celebrated. And you know what? We have a perfectly good day to do that on. It's called New Year's Day. I'll join you. We can raise a glass to all of the good things that we can all celebrate as fellow human beings. The world needs that. Let's do it on New Year's when we already have the day off anyway.

But leave Christmas to the Christians. You don't try to over-run other holidays. No one is trying to turn Eid in to World Happiness day. Or Pesach into the Festival of Leavening Awareness. Sure we all want to get along and share our mutual thoughts and feelings. But we also have times where we need to be ourselves- to be who and what we are in our innermost being. Our spirituality and beliefs are at the centre of who we are.

If we wish to celebrate who we are, we can not encourage one segment of our society to dilute the holiday that celebrates who they are.

Leave Christmas, Hanukkah, the Solstice and Kwanzaa for the people who celebrate them. There's nothing wrong with broadening our horizons and joining another group of people in celebrating their holiday. We can certainly learn a lot from each other if we respect each other's traditions. But if we are going to join them, let's remember that it's their holiday. It's not ours to change on a whim.

Then let's join together on New Year's Day to celebrate the human race and whatever else we want to celebrate that we feel the need to have a Holiday for.

The person below me celebrates another holiday besides Christmas.

#2073959 12/8 GDT: Predators 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by 55fan on 08 December 2010 - 07:56 AM

wooo looking forward to watching this one when I get home from work. I fully expect a good game and a red wings win tomorrow :thumbup:

Also, does this forum have an "ignore" user feature? I seriously believe Mindfly is mentally challenged, and is annoying as s***.

Thanks fellow true red wing fans :D

It certainly does. Just go to the top of the page and click the down arrow by your name. Then click on "manage ignored users". It will prompt you from there.

I'll warn you- if you put Mindfly on ignore, you will be missing a great deal of comic gold. This, of course, does not in any way eradicate the possibility that he might be mentally challenged or annoying as s***. (j/k Sebastian- you know I love you.)

EDIT: Forgot what I came for!

Wings will bounce back and win this one.

Wings: Kronner, Huds (OT)
Preds: bounce off Huds' skate

LGW goes nuts trying to decide if Huds is a hero or a villain.

Brad Stuart's family still lives in the San Jose area. He's been to Boston, Calgary, LA, and Detroit in that time. Sometimes it's easier to have a stable place for your children to grow up, and have dad go make money where he can. I think these situations are more common in sports, and in regular life than we would think.

Doesn't Pavel's family stay in Russia still??? (not sure)

I'm not sure about Rusty's reasons, but Stuie's family moved out here once he signed long-term. They didn't move when he was a rental because his wife was due (baby was born during the first round of the playoffs IIRC). Now they live in Detroit, but his step-daughter's father is back in Cali.

Svetlana is living in Russia since Elizabeth is going to school there. They had lived in Detroit when Elizabeth was younger, but moved when she got to be school-aged.

This has been As the Puck Turns.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled GDT...

Behave or Matt Shorts will ban you all.

Maybe Lids should win a Cup. It worked for Nik Kronvall. I haven't seen his name with a "v" since then.
