#2269595 Please, for the love of God

Posted by 55fan on 13 March 2012 - 03:47 PM

I realize that many people on this forum weren't born yet when the Red Wings were a bad team. There's a great deal of pride in the accomplishments of one's team, especially when it is improvement over the recent past.

After a number of good years, one tends to take it in stride and expect that the prior results will continue, whereas teams with a history of falling short will show their excitement over small achievements.

And so, in many ways, the Wings fans of today are like adults who are so busy striving for the Big Prize that we fail to stop and appreciate the lesser accomplishments that we achieve on our way to the Big Prize. And the Blues fans are like children who still announce to the entire household, "I made poopoo in the potty!"

Can we call Zata, Flip, and Huddie the "two-and-a-half men line"?

Smith played incredibly well. Depth is good.

He said he'd be on the trip, but wasn't sure if he'd be playing. He was going to bring sun screen just in case.

Excellent points. The next time I go see the Wings play the Wild (the closest team to me), I will be sure to wear an Avs jersey and jump up and down when both teams score, just so I won't look like an idiot. :rolleyes:

Silly, that's what that is.

Please tell me, you're not serious with a crappy explanation like that. Let me try the same reasoning.


Gretzky < Beliveau

4 Stanley cups < 10 Stanley Cups

Is that anything like
Roenick and Kariya combined < Kopecky?


#2266125 The person below me game...

Posted by 55fan on 03 March 2012 - 02:03 PM

Drunk posting! Friends don't let friends post drunk (without saving a copy to throw up in their faces later).

The person below me has seen a picture of the person above me lying on her back with her legs in the air. (Totally innocent- check the members photos thread.)

I'll have a hamblacheapee on rye with the sweet potato fries and a Coke.


#2265738 3/2 GDT : Wild 0 at Red Wings 6

I'll be watching this game at the bar with friends, its been a while since I've been able to actually watch an entire game. GO WINGS

Don't worry. It's been a while since the Wings have been able to actually play an entire game.

They keep showing up for the third period.

Full 60 tonight, boys. Do that and you won't need OT or shootout.


#2265723 Players you hate for being good

Posted by 55fan on 02 March 2012 - 03:00 PM

Getzlaf. I'd take him on the Wings any day of the week and I think I'd love to have a few drinks with him (and whatever), but I just want to give him a single-digit salute when he plays against us.

I also like Malkin and would kill to get him on the Wings with Pavel.

I also felt this way about Hossa before he came to our team. Irrational hate for no reason other than that he was good. Once he got here, I loved him. Now I just hope he's happy in his personal life and that his team's losses don't ruin his summer.


#2265720 3/2 GDT : Wild 0 at Red Wings 6

Posted by 55fan on 02 March 2012 - 02:54 PM

I love games against the Wild. I get to see them on the tv. I can't wait! Woohoo!

Wings will win this despite spending the entire game on the wrong end of a 5 on 3 due to the ref thinking that Setoguchi was tripped every time he winds up on his face.

Wings: Mule, Miller, Mursak, MacDonald (not sure how he'll pull it off, but I'm on an M theme here)

Wild: Cullen (cuz he's from Moorhead, but only he gets to score for the Wild and not any other M boys. Just because I say so.)


#2265413 The Hottest Red Wing

Posted by 55fan on 01 March 2012 - 01:06 PM

Say "hello" to Drew!

He moved for the other pics, so here's the only good one so far. He was nervous and trying to get settled in, so I will just let him be for now. Loo got a better shot on her cell, but I don't know how to put cell pics onto the computer.

Here he is: Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

There was one that was dark like the others I have had, but he reminded me so much of Johan that I decided to go with a white one. It fits. White... Ian...white hair...Drew. Right?

Now all we have to do is get Eaves back and playing so they can all score a goal and I can get a hamster trick. I've never done it before, but I think it would be cool.

EDIT: Here's the one from Loo. Thanks, Loo!

#2265315 Presidents Trophy

It gives you something shiny for one of the Alternate Captains to drive down Woodward with.

If you don't win the Cup, nothing else matters.


#2265310 Brad Stuart's family issues

Posted by 55fan on 01 March 2012 - 08:35 AM

Or it could be that Stuie is just a decent guy who realizes that he could have to move at the drop or a hat, and that it is important for a child to be with her father, and he's doing the decent thing.

More power to him.
