Also, I think you could land a remote control plane on Athanasiou's eyebrows.

Hey, as long as Athaniseeyouthroughmyeyebrows can put the puck in the net, he can wear his facial hair any way he likes it. 

Also, as a woman, I can tell you that plucking hurts and he would have a lot to pluck.  I don't blame him for leaving them bushy, but since they're perfectly evenly shaped, I'm guessing he does some sculpting.

Nothing wrong with putting your health and family first.


I hate the Pens, but this isn't about the team, it's about a person.  I wish him all the best in the future.

The person below me has (or has had) hair past their waist.
(And since I know some of you quite well, let me specify that I am referring to the hair on your head growing long enough to pass the waist.)

The person below me has used condoms as balloons.

#2633428 10/27/15 - Carolina Hurricanes vs. Detroit Red Wings - TACKY Mad Libs

That was a fun GDT starter.  Unfortunately, BoS ate Mrazek in my version.


I really hope we win tonight.  SOMEONE in Detroit has to come home with wins.

But the folks that do know'im

Said "Don't write a poem."
So the injuries shall losses excuse.



I wrote you a poem anyway.

You're welcome.

Nope.  No ties here.  I only buy shootouts.

The person below me has been camping lately.

#2629167 Cleary NOT reporting to Grand Rapids

Posted by 55fan on 09 October 2015 - 06:10 PM

This is what Maltby did a number of years ago.  Get a contract.  If it works out and he outplays the kids, then that's fine.  He deserves to be on the team.  If not, he retires and that's that.  Everyone was mad at Malts for hanging around until he retired.  Then everyone got some clarity and said, "Hey.  He was just giving it another shot." and all was well.


I don't blame Cleary or Holland.  In Holland's case, it was a win-win.  If Cleary REALLY outplayed the kids (as if) he's be icing the best team possible.  If Cleary didn't, then he'd either have a great guy in GR or he could let him go in peace.  In either case, giving the kids a little more competition never hurts, and they got the benefit of Cleary's teaching while he was there.  Remember that game when he and Larkin were on the bench after their shift?  Larkin was intent on what Cleary was explaining to him.  Since Cleary didn't play during the season, it didn't cost the Wings a dime.


In Cleary's case, it was a chance.  It was one more training camp.  One more pre-season.  One more time hearing the roar of the crowds and feeling the comradery in the locker room.  One last hurrah before skating off into the sunset.


I wish him well.  I will always remember him as the Guy Who Almost Lost an Eye Fighting Chris Elbowf***  Pronger.

Luongo put him up to the mullet thing via twitter.  This is a dream come true for those of us who remember when the hot guys were all wearing mullets. :wub:

#2627537 Model Tries to Blackmail Jagr

Posted by 55fan on 27 September 2015 - 02:08 PM

*note to self*vacation in FL.

If you meet a model, make sure you don't let her take her phone to bed.  Imagine how mortified you'd be if your picture was all over the internet in bed with a model. 

#2627417 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by 55fan on 25 September 2015 - 06:37 PM

That model tried to extort $2,000 from jagr not a couple hundred grand

Wasn't even the model herself.  It was someone who got the pics.


Back to Kane, I doubt he'll never pick up another girl again.  He may want to keep meetings public until he actually gets to know her.  In my day, that was called "dating".  I doubt he'll do that.


I actually hope this thing goes to jury just so that the evidence will be at the forefront of discussion rather than the whole "he said, she said" thing with people injecting personal bias into it. 


I was impressed with that DA.  At least the people looking at the evidence are not looking for a dog and pony show or publicity.

I listen to Pink Floyd when trying to retain my grasp on my sanity.  Only certain songs, of course.  Some Floyd songs are counterproductive to that effort.

The funny part is that I had a mouse in the house and he liked Floyd too.  I used this against him by luring him out and setting the trap near where I knew he would go.  He has been relocated to Minnesota now.

Oh, that's interesting.  There will be overtime after the game no matter the score so they can try out the 3 on 3 thing.
