I have my beads ready for the Playoff Bracelet tradition. 

 

I think I'm the last of the breed, but if it worked in 2008, I'm going to do it.

I can see starting the kids on lower lines.  Get them over their jitters and adjust the lines as they play.

 

For good luck, I've changed my photo. 

 

Nik is smiling in this one.

Ladd is a game-time decision.  His wife is about to pop.  Hockey aside, I wish her all the best.

 

Back to hockey... Go Blues. 

1) to knock out Chicago

2) to shut up the people who hate fat people who yap when Hitchcock is on the screen




#2667608 Money On The Board - 25 years worth of playoffs style!

Posted by 55fan on 13 April 2016 - 04:37 PM

$5 for a home clincher (per round)

$5 per win

$5 per shutout goose egg

$5 if the Pens, Hawks or Kings go out in the first round

$3 a goal for Abby (MSU)

$3 for an OFFICIAL Kronwalling

$2 a goal for Hank or Pav

$1 for each Larkin markin

$1 for each shortie

 

$50 for each Cleary goal

If you're in for Cleary, I am too.  One of my hamsters had the middle name Daniel after him, and he was a HUGE Cleary fan. 
I'll not go $50 as that could break me, but I will double my normal hamster stakes for any goal by Cleary.

A small reminder for our boys tonight:

#2667498 Money On The Board - 25 years worth of playoffs style!

Posted by 55fan on 13 April 2016 - 12:10 PM

Yes!  I was just changing my sig today to reflect the playoffs, and I realized that I usually have one related to this.  Since I go complicated, I keep track in my sig.

 

Please, if you are a first-time contributer, don't be frightened off by my madness.  It is totally acceptable to just pledge $1 per win or whatever you like.

 

Once again, I'm pledging $1 for each goal scored by any active Red Wing after whom I've named a hamster, all of whom are now running in that Big Wheel in the Sky, and $5 for a game in which the other team fails to score on a goaltender for whom I've named one of the aforementioned hamsters.

The $1 will become $2 if the goal scored is the GWG, $3 if it is a series-clinching goal, and $10 if it is the Cup-clinching goal.

 

Rather than listing the full names of my beloved pets, I'll just list the names of those who remain with the team:

Henrik, Pavel, Niklas, Johan*, Jonathan, Drew*, Gustav, and our goaltender, Jimmy.

*LTIR players noted for completeness.

 

In celebration of my new vehicle, Danny, I will also give $5 for any goal scored by DeKeyser, raised to $10 if it is the Cup-clinching goal.

 

Go Wings!

Who is who in the picture?

Kopecky, Datsyuk, Lebda, Zetterberg, Williams, Hudler, Filppula, Kronwall

 

Is it weird that Kokopuffs looks more like an alien than Datsyuk?

The Wings have now been in the playoffs consecutively for half of my life.  No wonder this half has been better than the first.

Nope.  I'm so pale that I've actually been blinded by the reflection off my arm.  I do not tan.  I burn in blotches.  I've tried laying out but ended up with burnt skin.  I was sitting next to a friend once who had very dark black skin.  He put our arms next to each other and pronounced me the whitest Caucasian he'd ever seen.

Hahaha I don't know why I like this GDT so much!

Because it has the info we want in a format that makes us think that we're in the locker room looking to see if our number is there or if we'll be in the press box.  See y'all in the press box.




#2660652 3/17 GDT - Red Wings at Blue Jackets - 7:00 PM EST

Posted by 55fan on 17 March 2016 - 06:02 PM

This will be the first game played after the loss of my beloved F-150, Stevie.

This will be the first game played after the acquisition of my new Taurus, Danny (or as Loo calls him, Danny DeTaurus).

 

Let's hope that the turning over of a new leaf and the turning of the page will result in something other than them turning over the puck.

 

Prediction:  Wings win 3-0.  DeKeyser with the hat trick to prove himself worthy of having a Taurus named after him.

I use the knuckle method for the months.

The I before E method has so many weird exceptions.  (See what I did there?)
