Subject of milk cartons.



Oh, we posted at the same time, Scott.  I guess people will have to guess both of ours.

i have a new baby Godson.  Wyatt Allan was born on Oct. 30th.  This was him when he was 3 hours old.  He's a big boy now.  He's over 10 pounds.  He's adorable.



#2555171 Matt Martin hit on Keith Ballard.. DIRTY

Posted by 55fan on 09 December 2014 - 11:22 PM

It looked dirty at first, but when you see the replays, you have to wonder how much Ballard put himself in that position. 


Koivu was pretty upset that there was no penalty, but Brodziak administered justice the next time Martin was on the ice.  (I use the term "administered justice" loosely- it was a pretty even fight, with Martin getting the better of it, but it's the thought that counts.)


The Wild were down 3-0 when this happened, and scored soon after on a PP, which started their comeback.


Nino (former Islander) scored the GWG and the Wild won 5-4.  Ballard was taken to a hospital, but seems fine.  So, assuming that Ballard is actually ok, it seems that all's well that ends well.

Edit every thread to correct all grammar.  Then die of exhaustion in a heap of despair.

Good for him.  There are a lot of things in life that a person can do to make the world a better place, but not a lot of people make the time or effort to do them.

Snowman.  (although it's usually a snow woman because I've never been too good at making snowballs)


Better gift:  Candy or flowers?

That is the weirdest GDT I've ever seen.


Good job.


You can't spell WINGS without WIN.

and you can't spell BLUE JACKETS without LACK T.


I don't know what that means.  I'm just reporting it.

If Bettman says ads on jerseys aren't happening soon that means ads on jerseys are probably happening soon. 




So we'll be sponsored by casinos in Las Vegas, where they aren't even discussing having a team?

How about we compromise and the players wear baseball caps with logos on them during interviews?


I could deal with that and the companies get their advertising.


Sorry, Jagr, you're the oldest in the league.  You have to wear the geritol hat.

Sorry, Zetterberg, you just aren't a believable spokesman for shaving cream.

Yes, Datsyuk, you can have the Dr. Rhamani hat.

For the last time, Perry, you were voted by your peers as the one to wear the Summer's Eve hat.


This could lead to fun on a whole new level.

Even tie-ins don't sound good.  Ads would be worse.
