Actually it is the other way around, iirc ALL playoff games will be nationally televised this year, imo that is a big step forward.

I get that channel! That makes 2!

#2281204 What does everyone think of the new license plate?

That's hilarious, Krystal. I doubt they'd find it as funny.

I tried every combination I could think of having to do with redwing, wingnut, winggrl, you name it- if it had 5-7 letters, I tried it.

I was ready to give up when my sister suggested using the Z instead of the S. I usually hate such contrived spellings, but in this case I allowed that the Z was an homage to Zetterberg.

Here they are on my old car (haven't got a pic of them on Stevie):

Go Wings! Let's start this off right.

Everyone on our team with a K in their name scores.
Everyone on the preds with a vowel in their name doesn't.

Lebda's mom might until she realizes that he plays for the other irrelevant team in the Central.







Sorry PredsFanintheBayouState. I have a nasty sense of humour. Nothing personal against you.

It doesn't matter who we cheer for or how we feel.

The Florida Panthers will win the Cup. Tomas Kopecky will be a three-time Stanley Cup Champion, having won the Cup 3 times in 5 years with 3 different teams.

With this, the secrets of the universe shall reveal themselves and all the world as we know it shall perish.

The Mayans have foretold it. So shall it be.



Screw the Mayans.
I'm still rooting for the Wings.

GOWINGS was taken in ND. I ended up with GOWINGZ.

Rock the plate with pride, friend!

#2280466 Playoff Beards and Bracelets

Posted by 55fan on 09 April 2012 - 04:28 AM

It's playoff time, and that means traditions.

Are you planning on growing a playoff beard? Wearing playoff bracelets?
Here's the place to share your stories and pics.

There are many variations and superstitions. Let's hear yours!

Do you shave after the last game of the regular season, or the night before the first game?
Is trimming the beard allowed?
Do you decorate your bracelets beyond the standard "red=win white=loss"?
Have you done either of both of these before?

Now is the time! This is the place!


Personally, I'm doing the bracelets again. I'm sticking with the beads (initials of each player for each goal scored and the goalie if the other team fails to get by him).

I want another year like 2008:

I'm excited for the playoffs. GO WINgs!


#2280258 Money On The Board - Playoff Style

Posted by 55fan on 08 April 2012 - 12:43 PM

I'm going with the hamster pledge again, only this year I have a new hamster. Therefore, I pledge $5 for every goal scored by:
Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Holmstrom, Lidstrom
Kronwall, Cleary
Franzen, Filppula, Ericsson
Miller, Eaves (IR), White, Bertuzzi

I will keep track in my sig line.

Thanks for doing this again!

HUGE EDIT:

Oh, my. I just realized that I made a huge error. I thought I was doing the same thing as I had done last year, but last year it was $1 per goal, not $5.

Well, I do try to keep my word, but I just kind of screwed myself. If I stick with what I said, I may not be able to pay up. So I'm going to stick with what I said, but I'm putting a cap on it: Only one goal per player per series. This caps me at $240 maximum. It's a bit much for me, but that's what makes it exciting.

And this time I really mean it.

Sorry. :(
