Too funny Shanny
 
A friend of mines mom was a real estate agent back in the day and she was somehow involved in the sale of Shanny's home in Detroit. Apparently all he had in his basement (which was a dark unfinished cellar basically) were boxes of thousands of Shanahan trading cards and cot, not a bed, a cot. He told her that that is where he sleeps on the night before a game. Dude's hardcore.


He's also well known for winding people up with enormous porkies. Remember when it said the media guide that he was a backup goalie for Ireland at the 94 World Cup?

I think they're being ultra cautious with groins this year. Better to sit for a week than try to play through it and be out 2 months. Plus we have 4 days off after the Tampa game

In Topic: What happened to Calle Jarnkrok?

Christ.  That "back to Sweden" rumor has been debunked so many times it's not even funny and yet it still gets repeated.  Both the Red Wings front office (Assistant GM Ryan Martin) as well as Jarnkrok himself have denied that this was ever a factor.  Whatever else may come of this kid's career, he was NOT traded because he was a "back to Sweden" flight risk. 

 

The problem with the "debunking" is that there are quotes out there saying its true, and there are quotes out there saying it isn't true.....

In Rugby the ref can give a "penalty try" for blatant cheating such as this - automatic 5 points.

Many years ago, the cricket team I played for had an ongoing competetion to see who could find the cheapest beer.  The prize was taken when one guy came back from holiday with a 4-pack that cost the grand total of 58 pence.  No-one was going to beat that. Couldn't even begin to remember the "brand".
