#2561049 Visiting Fan

If anyone asks why you're with a Blues fan, tell them you just claimed her off of waivers and her new uniform isn't ready yet.


They'll have a laugh, you'll have a laugh, and then you can all enjoy the game.

Well, guys, I guess that's it.  The season is over.  It's been fun and exciting.  Hopefully we can build on this.  We've seen some improvements, most notably in the department of "not taking stupid penalties, especially in the neutral zone".


We can take down the Blue and Silver decorations and put up the Red and White.  Mike, you can get the lights, Jimmy can take care of the streamers, I'll clean up the snack kitchen.  The rest of you guys can tidy up the mancave and get the beer cans/bottles out for recycling.  Don't worry about picking up the flags.  The officials will be over to take care of that.

Sad thing, Mike, is that I once did have one shot, one opportunity to grab everything I ever wanted.  I took that shot, that opportunity.

He screamed like a girl and the restraining order is still in effect.

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)
