#2260989 2/23 GDT : Canucks 4 at Red Wings 3 (SO)

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 23 February 2012 - 11:32 AM

Leaving at 1:30 with my cousin, who's a Canucks fan, for the game tonight. They're talking about a snow storm tonight for Michigan-Ontario over night, but we're going anyway! The Weather Network says the worst will be at 4am, but we'll be back by 1:30-2am anyway, so no worries.

I made a comment on my facebook about us going, and that after tonight we may only be cousins by name only :lol:. He replied, "Remember I have the advantage, I have the car keys".

Edit: It's always a tough decision, on which jersey to wear. I have Yzerman, Shanahan, Holmstrom, and a Osgood jersey t-shirt.

Have a safe drive home, who knows what we'll get tonight. Of course enjoy the game and your cousin will hopefully be a good sport about their loss. :P

I'd go with Ozzie but that's just me, since Homer is the only one still on the ice go with him...he may not be here much longer.

8-1 Wings. :siren: :siren: :siren: Benching 7ouongo in the 1st period, and sadly, ruining Jimmy's great game in the last minute of play. :ranting: LGRW.


Fixed that and now you are the one to blame. :P Not supposed to say the word or think it! :ph34r:

#2259245 freeredwings.tv stops streaming NHL games

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 20 February 2012 - 09:18 AM

Sorry that happened to you. I know many people really appreciated you streaming the games but of course you don't need to deal with legal problems. Good luck with your new little one!


#2259242 Ty Conklin clears waivers, assigned to GR

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 20 February 2012 - 09:16 AM

Good point... I didn't think about it like that. That might be risky too though, keeping him on the club and out of regular playing time. I guess there are pros and cons no matter which way you look at it...

It's not like he ever had regular playing time anyway this season. I think Ty needs to be given a chance to play whether it be in GR or on another team. Who wants to sit the entire season and then be criticized for poor play on the very rare occasion he's called upon?

#2255371 2/12 GDT : Flyers 3 at Red Wings 4

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 12 February 2012 - 09:36 AM

I'll be at the game tonight!


Looks like the Flyers have been struggling a bit as of late. I expect them to play hard but I expect the Wings to play harder! Looking forward to a good game from the guys and Joey.

Let's Go Wings!!

Quit freaking out, it won't be as bad as everyone is making it out to be.


Sadly it may not be freaking out as much as a reality. This happens all the time to sporting events and concerts. The scalpers manage to get a hold of so many tickets that those of us that have to budget our money can't even dream of paying for it.

I remember trying to see about tickets when they played in Chicago and I had no luck...I wasn't even that serious about going but if I found a deal I would have.


#2254333 How WC tickets will be sold

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 09 February 2012 - 02:52 PM

I really hope the NHL isn't allowing fans from outside of Detroit or Toronto areas participate in the lottery. I'm sorry but if I see ANYONE wearing a jersey that is not Toronto or Detroit I am going to be pissed.

What about all the Detroit fans that don't live in Metro Detroit? Like many of our members here.

what is this tourist perspective you speak of? people arn't there to sightsee they are there to see a hockey game. southern ontario is the largest market and thats where 2/3 of the fans at this game will be from.

illitch will get his cut from all the stuff happening at comerica, that is how he is going to reward the people of detroit.

The tourist perspective would be all the business that is generated in Detroit as a result of everyone coming over for the events. This will benefit the City of Detroit.

Will U of M season ticket holders at the Big House get any priority whatsoever?

Doesn't sound like it since the NHL is handling ticket sales.


#2254260 Sunday on NBC or NBC sports network?

Posted by WizardOfOz30 on 09 February 2012 - 12:55 PM

The should have just left the name Versus because now there's so much confusion as to which NBC channel we need to watch.

Thank you! I really want to go but I'm worried about not having the "right connections" to find a ticket that isn't prices 10x face value. I will definitely be keeping an eye on this thread.

What a great story. People with developmental disabilities have the biggest heart...we can all learn something from them.


#2253003 2/6 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Coyotes 3

I have a feeling Ty is done as a Wing :( Willing to bet we see MacDonald tonight and I'm sure they'll play well. Wonder if they spent Sunday golfing and watching the Superbowl instead of working on the PP.

I hope we have a great game for my friend that will be there.

Always say the Wings will win the game.
