It just makes me laugh.

The person below me has had plastic surgery.

And if the head gets too foamy and they have to let it rest, you can enjoy a white Russian in its place.

#2298674 Habs reportedly to buy out Scott Gomez's contact

Scott Gomez: Born Dec. 23, 1979.

Johan Franzen: Born Dec. 23, 1979.

Cue Twilight Zone theme.

#2298556 Predators bench Radulov and A. Kostitsyn for Game 3 of WCSF

Posted by 55fan on 01 May 2012 - 04:50 PM

For some reason, when I hear about curfews and the like, it amazes me that grown men have or need bedtimes.

Is this really worth a suspension? It sounds so high school.

I understand that they are in the playoffs, but you'd think that the players would realize the need to be at the top of their game.

Maybe I'm reading too much of my own life into this, but it seems like they'd know by this point in their lives how much they can and can't drink and how late they can stay up and still get enough sleep.

#2298311 Is Rinne Getting Exposed?

Posted by 55fan on 30 April 2012 - 05:02 PM

Not to say that he's bad or anything like that, because he's a very good goalie, but we made him look better than he is.

He would give up rebound after rebound and the Wings would all stand there and think, "Hey. There's the puck. It would have been really cool if someone would have been standing there to take another shot. Is someone going to get that? No? Oh, we're on defense now? Ok, I'll just skate to the other end. Unless my shift is over..."

#2297323 Where does Bertuzzi fit?

Posted by 55fan on 26 April 2012 - 04:32 PM

Bert will serve as our powerplay, seeing as how our powerplay is our enforcer.

Thanks for my life-away-from-life.

#2296874 Crazy, but serious, off season predictions

Posted by 55fan on 25 April 2012 - 03:04 AM

Perry to Detroit :P

That would be ok. At least if Homer retires, Nick would have a ride to work.

No. The last group I heard where I went, "Hey, I really like these guys and I'm going to listen to more of their stuff" was Lady Antebellum, and they've been out for a while.

The person below me would like to have x-ray vision as long as they could control when to activate it so as not to have to see under ugly people's clothing.

#2296664 Say what you will about Barry Trotz...

I believe that Trotz was serious. Everything he has said previously indicates to me that he looks up to Lidstrom as much as his lack of a neck allows.

I use my "Reputation' points at my bank. Every year, in return, they give me a free calendar.

Me too, but they charge 15 points a month in fees that I never agreed to when I signed up for the calendar program, and I have to carry a balance of 1,000,000 points or direct deposit 1,000 a month in order to waive the fee, neither of which is possible with my point status.

Or I could borrow 3.5 billion points that I don't need at an interest rate of 100 points per month and then I would save the 15 points.

I also get phone calls on an almost daily basis offering me their services.

And the calendar is of the Sedin twins.

I hate my bank.

#2296121 Death of the integrity of the NHL.

Posted by 55fan on 23 April 2012 - 02:58 AM

My bf doesn't follow hockey but has been trying for me. He's watched some of the playoffs this year.

He sent me the following texts tonight:
"NHL seems to have a weak commish. And it seems less than professional in many regards compared to NBA, NFL, or Major League Baseball. It is not even marketed as well as the WWF."

"Somehow somebody has left the casual NHL observer with feelings reminiscent of boxing after Holmes beat the piss out of Ali. It's like no one knows who the f*** is the heavyweight champion of the world?"

Basically, he's confused as to what is a penalty and what isn't. I've tried to explain the game, but in watching, he is confused. He has, however, independently come to the conclusion that Crosby is a *****.

He has also discovered that the game itself is pretty cool.

It's been interesting getting perspective from an outsider.

#2296055 Worst Summer Headline

After last summer, I just don't want to see anything that reads "_________ ________ Dead at Age ___".
