The ranking and lands of a baron.
Or a barista who is sexually attracted to cartoon horses.
I'm not sure which

Judging by your sig, I'm guessing you're the latter.

Not really, smoking cigerettes is like doing heroine or meth. Same thing except legality

Let's do a side-by-side comparison.  I'll bring the cigarettes.

This happened in Vegas.  I thought what happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas.


<shrug> Guess he was happening and he'll be staying.

Apparently I forgot about hat tricks.  I will add $5 for any scored by one of the hamster boys.

Had a foot-in-mouth moment today.  I was talking to one of the reps that comes into the store.  He's also an off-ice official for the Force.

Mike Babcock (the younger) plays for the Force, and the rep is always telling me what a great kid he is.

The rep asked if the Wings had made the playoffs.  We started talking about all the match-ups.  After a pause, he commented that he had thought it was odd that Babcock's dad didn't come to the last game.

I was still thinking NHL and said, "Oh, didn't you hear?  He passed away."

The rep had a look of shock on his face.  Then I realized that he was talking about the younger Babcock's dad (our coach) not being at the last Force game.

We got it straightened out, but it was an awkward moment.

Totally missed it! :lol:

Wait... you missed Steve Yzerman's underwear?  You're losing your touch.

That hamster list is getting a little long.  You might have to switch it up soon.   :)

What is sad is how few current Wings remain. :(

It's still just 5 hamsters.  I've had Jordin for 2 years now (3 playoffs).

Ah, for the days when Mule and Fil made me nervous about going broke...

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.
