:wub: Mac :wub:

 

I feel that tonight is the night Tatar will bust loose.  You can tell he wants it so badly.

I'm an idiot.  I just now realized that this is one of those polls where you click on a box and not just comment.  Ok, my vote has been officially cast.




#2669846 Was Moving To The East Worth It?

Posted by 55fan on 16 April 2016 - 04:50 PM

Not the be-all and end-all, but there is the factor of familiarity.  We knew the West teams better because we played them more often, and we played them in the playoffs.  Notice how we're more familiar with the Lightning than, say, Montreal. 

 

I think after a few more years, we'll be as aware of each East team's strengths and weaknesses as we were of the West's. 

 

Then, maybe, we can fix the rest.

I'm going to amend mine to $1 per point, rather than goal, by my boys.  The rest remains.  Now I at least owe some money. :)

They say it isn't over until you've lost at home.  Let's make it over for Tampa Bay tonight.

This was my "theory" on Rey's parentage.  It is not meant to be taken seriously.

I'm going with #4.  All were great and I loved them all, but when I first saw #4 I thought "This is awesome." so I'm going with the one that gave me the best first impression.

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.




#2667618 WCQF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues

Posted by 55fan on 13 April 2016 - 04:56 PM

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

$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.
