I'm not ready for life without Lids. I need one more year, then I'll be ready. Thanks, Nick.

Ok, what is a Blue Moon? (aside from dropping your pants in December)

It's Coors attempt at a craft brew. It's a Belgium white. It's decent if you don't know where to find actual Belgium whites.

Yeah, no. Say puck drop is 7:30 p.m. That means from 4:30 to 7:30 you can sit in the parking lot and drink until you can't tell colors from shapes anymore. How are you going to get any enjoyment out of the hockey game if you're so drunk your blood qualifies as a cocktail? As someone else alluded to, how are you supposed to get home? You're not going to be dead sober by the time the game ends, so you can't drive anywhere.

I don't drink, and have family reasons for why that is, but I don't have anything against someone who has a beer or two at the game, or at a concert, or at a restaurant....whatever. It's people who drink until they're falling down drunk that I don't like, because they're invariably seated near me, and not only do I have to hear them, I have to smell them, and that takes away from my ability to enjoy myself, and that's not taking into account everyone else around him/her either.

If you think drinking until you can't stand up qualifies as a good time, that's kind of sad.

Just to say, there's plenty of us who could find a "$35 all you can drink" and make it finacially responsible *and* not aren't drunken messes in public. 35 bucks at $5 a beer = 7 beers. Even if those are 12 full ounces (doubtfully) that's not that much to people who regularly consume alcohol responsibily. Hell, I've had 8 or 9 pints of beer today (Happy St Paddy's Day to all!) and you don't even have to smell me.

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!"

Am I allowed to have a sig line this long? Please?
