#2284086 WCQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 3, at Nashville Predators 2

Posted by 55fan on 13 April 2012 - 05:22 AM

Dear Mr. Holland. Here are 14 easy steps to making everything ok.


1) Find the player with the most reddish hair.
2) Grow him a full beard by noon.
3) Make sure he's somehow interviewed by lots of members of the media.
4) Laugh and say that Draper was also said to look like Chuck Norris.
5) Keep the player away from the media after the warmup skate.
6) Make sure that, as a Red Wings employee, no one questions that Kris Draper went into the locker room.
7) Laugh as you acknowledge that Kris Draper is looking more like Chuck Norris than ever.
8) Watch in amazement as the player mentioned in Step One completely destroys Shea Weber as soon after the puck drop as possible.
9) Make sure that the camera doesn't get too good of a shot of the player mentioned in Step One as he goes to the locker room after begin kicked out of the game.
10) Win the game.
11) Allow the player mentioned in Step One to face the media after the game, noting that he has shaved his playoff beard in protest which is why he no longer looks like Chuck Norris.
12) Do not allow Kris Draper to address the media. In fact, just for good measure, have him get an emergency phone call during the first intermission and have to leave the locker room.
13) Feign ignorance when the media notices that Chuck Norris is a Wings fan, but oddly enough didn't find his seat until the second period.
14) Cover the cost of Chuck Norris' seat from Illitch Petty Cash fund.

#2284039 NHL Should Make Injuries Fair Game!

Then we'll get rid of those pesky rules here and make hurt feelings fair game. Then people will tell you what they think with much less tact, intelligence, and grace than Gabe used in Post #2 of this thread.

#2283286 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

What's the deadline for try-out contracts like the one we signed Sheahan for?

In other news, D-Mac isn't under contract with anyone.


I hope Weber gets
1) suspended
2) fined
3) Kronwalled
4) beaten down
5) sent golfing in about, oh, say... a week, give or take a day or two.

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!

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.
