#2592733 Money On The Board!

Posted by 55fan on 12 April 2015 - 08:14 PM

Yes!  Thanks for doing this again.  Either charity is fine, although I tend to lean towards children's hospitals.  There is no wrong answer if the money is going towards a good cause.


I'm going with the hamster bet again.  And, again, I'll keep track in my sig because it would be impossible otherwise.


$1 for each goal scored by a Wing after whom I've named a hamster (must still play for the Wings, sorry Filppula).

An additional $1 if the above-mentioned goal scored is a GWG.

An additional $5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.

An additional $50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.


$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.


The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James


Go Wings!

That 3rd Ottawa goal was a beauty.  Rookie playing so smoothly...


I'm rooting for Ottawa and hoping the Wings pull off a win.  I just want Pittsburgh and Boston out.  Since it can't be both, an Ottawa win assures that it will be at least one of them.

Oh Oh Oh Its Mrazek

That took me a minute... but it was SO worth it.


I shall be singing it.


I want to see that odd guys that don't score much have a killer day, just because there are so many big guns out.


Mrazek scores a goal.  Hat trick for Cleary.  One point for Miller for each stitch.

Make it so, Wings.


Or just win, if that's more realistic.

Actually, it was Dream Academy (they did the original Life in a Northern Town).


Your second is Genesis, but I have no idea as to the first, unless Chachi Dancing at the Superbowl is a band. :P

#2591963 Definition of a real fan

Posted by 55fan on 10 April 2015 - 08:41 AM

What is a fan?

Well, a fan is a man

(Or a gal, if she sits whilst

She leaks in the can).


A fan has a team,

And the team has a dream,

And the dream of the team

'S of the crop to be cream.


The fan shares the goal,

And invests heart and soul,

But the role of the soul

Goes from shy to *******.


The shy fans say "swell"

When the team's doing well,

Then they scurry the hell

Back to dwell in their shell.


The vocal fans yell

And their veins start to swell

If a diver should sell

Or the PP won't gel.


Some point out the lack

Of a skill or a sac,

And a player attack

If they think he should pack.


Some feel it's their duty

To cheer and be root-y

And not give a hoot-y

If some think that's fruity.


But all of the types follow one common theme-

In good and in bad, their team is their team.

I don't think I've ever been this happy after a loss.


Anything can happen now!

That's Orchestral Manoevers in the Dark, for you young folks.

The first is Headstones.


The other... not so sure.  Best guess at this time is Blow the Earth, but I doubt it.

Econoline crush is a band?

Is it bad that my mind is stuck on Faygo-bago?

#2585241 Mikael Samuelsson announces retirement

<sigh>  I loved that guy.  Ever since I was watching that game in 2008 and telling my friend how he never scores, and he did, and I told her how she would probably never see him do it again, and he did, I have loved him.

If you can shock me into silence twice in a few minutes by doing good things, I will love you forever.

Fare thee well, Shinguard Assassin.

My first thought:  That poor girl!  (referring to the mother)


My mother's first thought:  I'm glad that didn't happen to me!


My sister's first thought:  They're going to have to detail that car.

#2583675 Jordin Tootoo's Goal

Posted by 55fan on 21 March 2015 - 10:30 AM

That was a nice goal.  I've been watching some Devils hockey since he went there.  I can't believe that we couldn't find a place for him when he was here.  He does much more than just pester and fight.

#2583478 The person below me game...

Posted by 55fan on 20 March 2015 - 08:25 PM

They scored more goals than we did.


The person below me has actually won a big prize at the fair.
