#2605583 ECSF: Tampa Bay Crying Coopers vs. Montreal Complaining Canadiens

Posted by 55fan on 02 May 2015 - 01:34 PM


Right, I thought he was in a coma or something. You mean he's perfectly okay? 

He told them he was ok afterwards and that he didn't think it was a dirty hit.  Unfortunately, today's NHL counts that as a sign of head injury.  Normal Bolts dive and whine.

The series goes to 7 games.  The first 6 are 1-0.  All goals are scored when the puck bounces off someone standing in front of the net pointing a finger at an opposing player and whining about something.


By game 7, they have all learned to stand and cry without pointing.  In the intermission before the 7th overtime of a 0-0 game, Steve Yzerman visits the locker room and asks to speak to Filppula.  He has brought with him a medium who looks deeply into Flip's dreamy... blue... ey...........


Oh, sorry.  But.  Those eyes...


She asks him to recall a previous life.  She sees the colour red.  He blinks.  He stares at Yzerman.  He sees the Cup Rings on Yzerman's hand.  Where has he seen that before?


Then it comes to him!  The heart of a Bolt remembers!  It is transformed into the heart of a Wing! 


And what happened next?  Well, in Whoville, they say, that Filppula's balls grew three sizes that day!


He skates onto the ice, wins the face-off, takes the puck himself, skates between the Canadiens players who are crying about an unfair puck drop.


He scores, winning the series for the Lightning.  A breathless Cooper asks him, "How did you do it?"  Filppula proudly replies, "I'm a Red Wing!  I cheated."


Then they go on to get blown away in the next series and we all live happily ever after.  The end.

Dan Cleary.


Actually, I was wondering the same thing.  Is there a good place to find all that info now that capgeek is no more?

#2604536 Money On The Board!

Since this didn't end profitably, I'm changing my pledge to $2 for every goal by a person after whom I've named a hamster, and $1 for every assist by them.


That makes $10 in goals and $12 in assists, so add $1 for each win and that brings us to a nice, round $25.  Will be sent soon.  Tomorrow is payday.  Look for it Friday, unless I'm still drunk.

BTW- I was talking to my sister tonight and explaining this game.  I gave her some past ones and she got them.  I gave her the Adele one and she got it right away. 


Of course, she does have a PhD from Harvard, so it's not like she's stupid or anything...

#2601206 WCQF : (4) Nashville Predators vs. (5) Chicago Ham Hocks

Posted by 55fan on 26 April 2015 - 01:00 PM

Anyone seen PredsFanTheBayouState ... he's gone invisible, just wondering if he's OK.  

I'm sure she's just disappointed.  We all are when our team is out.

I was rooting for Nashville because they had Cullen (support the local guy) and because I don't want Chicago to get another Cup until well after we have another one, and because PFTBS is a nice girl.

So she roots for another team.  She respects ours.

I'm so glad Detroit didn't get the early game today.  Last year they had the early game on the same Saturday as the Green and Gold game and got booted from NBC in my area.  Today it's just Caps/Isles.  No big deal to me to have to watch it elsewhere.


It drove me nuts to miss the Wings to watch the NDSU college football team play itself.
