#2149541 Throwing an octopus at the Joe no longer allowed

Posted by 55fan on 15 April 2011 - 12:43 PM

You sir win for the Detroit Ad reference.

Why, thank you! Thank you very much!

And now, kids, for those of you worried about hat tricks, let's review the rules:

63.4 Objects Thrown on the Ice In the event that objects are thrown on the ice that interfere with the progress of the game, the Referee shall blow the whistle and stop the play and the puck shall be faced-off at a face-off spot in the zone nearest to the spot where play is stopped. When objects are thrown on the ice during a stoppage in play, including after the scoring of a goal, the Referee shall have announced over the public address system that any further occurrences will result in a bench minor penalty being assessed to the home Team. Articles thrown onto the ice following a special occasion (i.e. hat trick) will not result in a bench minor penalty being assessed. Refer also to Rule 53.6 when spectator interference occurs during a breakaway.

See? No worries. It's in the Official NHL Rule Book. Now all we have to do is determine whether or not the National Anthem, a Detroit goal, or the end of the game constitutes a special enough occasion that we can use this rule to get by with it.

What happens if we decide to bring in a stuffed toy octopus and throw it on the ice?

You will be arrested by GI Joe and an army of Clone Troopers, locked in a toybox, and you will have to pay a fine in Monopoly money. You will also be banned from playing Hungry Hungry Hippos and Don't Break the Ice for a year.

I agree that this story is bent, twisted, fabricated, or in some way altered.

#2149362 Have you got your RED on?

Pearl necklaces instead.... :thumbup:

Pearls are white. White=loss.

Go to your room.

Well, ladies and gents. It looks like no one else is going to do this, so here we go...

It's the playoffs again, and with the games comes the Red Wings tradition of Playoff Bracelets.

"Wow!" you say, "How can I be a part of this?"

I'm so glad you asked.

The only real rule is this: Red= win. White= loss.

You can make one bracelet or one for each game. If you make one for each game, you can use different coloured floss. If you make one for the playoffs, you can use different coloured beads. You can add charms, octopi, or whatever you want to them. (Personally, I use letters to add the initials of all of the goal-scorers to my bracelets.)

They can even be necklaces, if you'd rather not wear a bracelet.

People come up with great ways of making this their own.

So join us! Add your own touch and count down the wins!

Roll call and/or pics can be posted at any time.

I'd imagine that Crawford is done.

The first Crawford I thought of was Corey. Then I figured you meant Marc. I'm a brick.

#2146293 Money On The Board - Playoff Style

Posted by 55fan on 11 April 2011 - 10:41 AM

Cool. I'll go $1 per win, plus $1 per goal for everyone I've had a hamster named after.

In the interest of full disclosure before the fact, here are the names of the furballs (active Wings bolded- will not pay for non-Wings unless they accidentally score for the Wings):

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Mathieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

This could get expensive, but it's worth it.

Question: Are we doing one for the post-season or is it a different one each series? (IOW, how often do we have to pay up?)

Well, I guess it's better than throwing actual dead Canucks on the ice.

#2143182 Turco making bets during game

Posted by 55fan on 07 April 2011 - 09:15 AM

Gambling is against the rules. Period. If a fiver is ok, how about 10? 20? 50? 100? 1000? 3,127.46? Even if it is Canadian money, it's still currency.

The fine should be the same as the wager. He should be fined 5 Canadian dollars upon which he must write "Turco rules". Upon collection of the bill, Colon Campbell shall cross out "Turco" and write "Campbell". The bill shall be passed through the glass to a random Habs fan.

In the meantime, Turco must have an evaluation for compulsive gambling, and must refrain from any gambling of any sort. I hear he's giving 10 to 1 odds that he never bets again, and will go double or nothing during the playoffs.

#2142348 4/6 GDT: Red Wings 0 at Hurricanes 3

Posted by 55fan on 06 April 2011 - 07:25 AM

I am so ready for this game!

It will be my first ever Wings game in person!!!!!!

Have a wonderful time! The Wings are so much better in person than, say, in animal or vegetable, although Wings in sweet and sour is mighty tasty.

Wings win 7-3.

#2141170 4/3 GDT: Wild 2 at Red Wings 4

Posted by 55fan on 03 April 2011 - 11:42 AM

Yay! It's the Wild! I get to watch it on the tv instead of computer!!

Go Wings!

Full disclosure: There is no Kayleigh Lynn Anderson. Her family members are fictional, as are her coach, school, and the dude that sells tickets for the Sens and his nephew.

Happy April Fool's Day everyone.

Thanks to those who played along (Call to Arms specifically) and, to the rest of you, GOTCHA!
