#1965317 429 Posts for a Game 1 Victory!

Posted by 55fan on 29 April 2010 - 04:46 AM

Didn't understand the 429 at first. Thought it was an homage to Williams, but couldn't figure out the 4.

Go Wings!

I'm sitting here wondering if I do that...rip on somebody who thinks we might lose. I don't think I have. It's the ones who are sarcastic, rip and tear, name-call and do their damndest to put our guys down so they might look/feel better about themselves for two minutes. At least I think that's what I do. :ph34r:

I'm guessing you go off on the same ones I hate. You know, the "f*** these guys their suking 2nitethey dont no how 2 play hocky i hate this teem they suk their down buy a goal and im poutin". Yeah, I hate them too.

I was referring to the type who post, "It's the second game of a back to back, and (Insert Player) has looked like his (Insert Body Part) is really bothering him. The (Insert Opposing Team) are having a great run now that (Insert Star Player) is back and (Insert Goalie) is really hot since he came back from (Insert Malady). I really doubt that (Insert Wings Star) will be 100% after going into the boards (Insert Body Part)-first. It will be a tough game, and I don't know if the schedule we've had lately plus all of our injuries will add up to a Wings victory."

When those people get bashed, that just ticks me off. Hey, it's a board for opinions. Some opinions are stupid. Some are not. I have no problem with people who disagree, but geesh, if someone says, "I hope the Wings win, but I have a bad feeling that they won't." that's not grounds for negativity.

Manicure- my feet are too ticklish.

Slovakia or Slovenia?

#1964338 So how come we can't play like this all the time?

I felt the only games which were bad were the 2 Sunday games which I blamed on travel.

For some reason the Wings tend to do poorly on Sunday afternoons. Come to think of it, so do the Lions...

What is insanely irritating is that one might have actual reason to fear that a particular team MIGHT lose a particular game, but if that team happens to be the Red Wings, and if one expresses the fear that the team might lose, one is minused and degraded and accused of being a troll or not a real fan.

Of course, once one person is called out and dragged through the gutter, who would dare to express themself?

Nice for a "discussion" board.

It's so fresh that it pinches your female co-worker in the butt. She gets you for sexual harassment. You try to convince people that it was the donut, but they don't believe you. You are sentenced to life in a mental facility for the criminally insane.

I wish I felt as good as I did at age 30.

#1959211 I don't know about you guys but..

Posted by 55fan on 26 April 2010 - 12:02 PM

I hate them and can't wait for this series to end so I don't have to see their dumb jobber faces anymore.

Obviously, you guys are all bandwagoners since you don't hate Phoenix enough. :P Some fans you are.

Troll, troll, troll your board
Gently on the net.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily-
Life with no regret.

Oh, not Robert. I love him.

Fine. They all catch it, but they are better by gametime. The Wings were looking forward to playing sick guys and they don't put in a full effort. They lose and the Yotes go on to win the Cup. Other teams start poisoning themselves before Game 7. Soon fans start joining in. There is no one left to watch hockey except for Leafs fans, who never get to the playoffs, much less a Game 7. Hockey becomes a niche sport and is televised only on some channel that few people get without going into the insane upper range of the cable payments. Oh, wait...

I wish I could crack my neck.

#1956517 4/24 OOT Playoff Gameday

Posted by 55fan on 24 April 2010 - 06:17 PM

As much as I really wanted the Preds to win, I am smiling right now.

Hossa scoring the OT goal after he should have been kicked out of the game reminds me of another game long, long ago in a venue far away.... Fight Night at the Joe. Mac scores the GWG in OT after he should have been kicked out. What a beautiful night that was. Even Chicago winning can't take me from my happy place right now.

Always two sides to a story.

...and the truth is somewhere in the middle.

#1955015 Norris Finalists Announced

Posted by 55fan on 23 April 2010 - 02:31 PM

If you take off the Homer glasses guys its easy to see that Lids didn't really deserve to win or really get nominated. Its an award for best defenseman, Nick has been shakier then usual this year on the defensive end with almost no offensive output. Doughty and Keith are both deserving, not Green however. Nick simply isn't the best in the game anymore, its a changing of the guard.

I'm pretty sure its awarded to the best defenseman not best defensive defenseman. Noone has ever said defenseman aren't supposed to put up points too, just like forwards aren't supposed to just forecheck.

To whom are you replying? I only saw one post that thought that Lids was maybe a third-place choice. The rest of us just think he's a great d-man whose play may not be what it was when he was young, but is still a fantastic player who we would take over pretty much anyone in a heartbeat.

That he is not a Norris contender is not a statement that he is no good, nor are we upset about this. As you say, it's a changing of the guard. Nick still brings leadership, hockey smarts, grace under fire, and a very high level of play. No homer glasses here.

#1954805 Ovechkin snows a child

That's funny because Ovechkin has more kneeing incidents.

Pronger would have gone for his knees and given him an elbow to the head. It's physics, you see. When he bends down that far to reach the kid's knees, it brings his elbow down to the level of the kid's head. It's not his fault that he's 6'6".

You mess up and expose the entire city to massive doses of radiation. Mutant children line the streets. Bald men can be used as streetlights. Your rotation is over NOW, mister. As is your medical career.

I wish I could talk myself into doing some actual work this weekend.

Posted by 55fan on 22 April 2010 - 11:59 AM

From the Chris Pronger's Handy Book of Hockey Physics:

Snow and ice are really just frozen water. When ice and snow melt, they turn into water. The body is 98% water. When you sweat, you lose water. The kid was probably hot in that outfit, and was probably sweating. Ovi was just returning what the kid had lost. It's physics.

Posted by 55fan on 21 April 2010 - 02:49 PM

Well my son, Matthew Edward, joined us this morning at 845 AM.

He is 7lbs 10oz and 21 inches long.

I was thinking going into this that he would be a goalie, but he took a swing at the doctor on the way out so I'm thinking agitator/power forward :D

Anyway, today is a GREAT day to be alive. Go Wings!!!

Wonderful news! Health and happiness to you all.

Now you either have to grow out the beard or have a baby every round of the playoffs. ;)
