#2257617 The Hottest Red Wing

Posted by 55fan on 17 February 2012 - 01:47 AM

Good luck, Pat! I hope it works for you and that it will all be better and you'll be playing that accordion again really soon.


I had the most tremendous surprise today! I knew Jenny was sending me the Ericsson fathead, BUT that wasn't all! She also included a Kronwall one! That was so cool!

And that wasn't all! Dawn had sent me a PM telling me to check my mail. There was also an envelope from her. It had a pic of Nik nailing Havlat (you know the one) and it was signed by Nik! "To Karen, All the best" and signed by him.

I am totally floored. I have never had so much happiness in my mailbox!

You guys are the best!

Is this him signing my picture?

Dear Red Wings, please, please

Go out there and kick some butt.

Play a full sixty.





(It's a victory haiku.)

It looks like they're just out there to watch some hockey and remind everyone that they would like a team. Not hurting anyone, not getting angry or demanding. Just some folks having good, clean fun. Nothing wrong with that.

Remember, Abby? It's across the ice, out the zamboni entrance, down the hall, third door. It's the one with the guy on it, not the one with the person in a dress. Those ladies were a bit upset last time, so make sure you get the right one, ok? You know, maybe Nick should take you when he finishes his drink.



Sorry, I like Abby too, but the spirit moved me to do that.


#2253537 Revenge

San Jose. Just because it was the most recent. I always want the team that got us last.

Pittsburgh is my next choice.

Aves is always nice for old times' sake.

Chelios. Who knew?

That gives me a lump in my throat. I used to be a home manager in a home for people with developmental disabilities. I loved a lot of them and it always means a lot to me when people go out of their way to be nice to the people who usually get ignored.

Good for the Preds and the guys from other teams who have made this guy's life happier.

Hasta la vista, Shutout!


#2252105 Vancouver Sun article on why no one hates the Wings

Posted by 55fan on 04 February 2012 - 06:47 PM

So, cprice, you hate Pasha because you lost him in scouting???? The only scout that ended up seeing him was ours, and he had gone there originally to look at Dmitri Kalinin. He found himself watching Pasha and was interested. The next time he went back there was some kind of mixup in flights or something so no one else ever scouted him. And that's one of the reasons why you hate him??? Cause you didn't get him?

Oy vey.

I'm sure many equipment managers hate Pasha. Crawling in the rafters after a game in search of jock straps is tedious work.

Get well, Sunshine. :yowza: We miss you. :(

That was a "leave you grinning" kind of thing. Very cool.


#2251851 What happened to Zetterberg's scoring touch?

Posted by 55fan on 03 February 2012 - 12:58 PM

Bravo!

We're all concerned about Hank not getting the goals, but his linemates are scoring in droves. To me this says that Hank is getting the job done. Also, his shots on goal is still up there. To me this says that he is kind of snakebit (although a minor bite- maybe just one fang) at the moment.

I have no doubt that he will continue to impress, although factors such as age and injury do and will have their effect. He is, after all human.

This is an important one. Two points and a chance to get in the heads of someone we might meet in the playoffs.

Get out there and do it, boys!


#2250629 Blue Jackets Fans Protest Management

Posted by 55fan on 29 January 2012 - 11:24 PM

Protests are stupid. If you want to change things, get yourself in a position to do something. Get off your butt and become part of the process that makes the decisions instead of sitting around trying to get attention.


#2249957 Winter Classic Idea

Posted by 55fan on 26 January 2012 - 10:03 AM

My liver wouldn't take it.

The fact that it might have to be pushed back is reason enough not to.

Also... I don't know... it just seems like we're kind of trying to legitimize ourselves by tacking on to a bigger sport. Not keen on it.


#2249934 Red Wings Pre-All Star Game MVP

Jimmy.

Honourable mention to Datsyuk, Lids, and Conklin for plunging the toilet.
