I'll see what I can do. :)

#2625258 Monthly schedule wallpapers?

Seriously, though. During the summer, my desktop background is a gallery of random video game wallpapers. October through April is the only time my girlfriend doesn't think I'm a man-child.

#2623576 Adidas Gets NHL Jersey Deal

Posted by WingsAlways on 19 August 2015 - 08:23 PM

Nike started all the "athletic shoe manufacturer getting a piece of the hockey world" in the 90's by slapping the swoosh on Bauer equipment and getting players like Fedorov and Sundin to endorse it. I don't mind it but being old school I think hockey jerseys should be sponsored by hockey manufacturers (Koho, CCM, Bauer).

If I could like this post a thousand times, it still wouldn't be enough.

I used to love Dan Cleary and this whole situation has kinda turned me off towards him... but I certainly blame Holland as much as I blame Cleary... but this situation would never keep me from going to games.

I absolutely love Pierre McGuire's commentary.  Screw everybody who doesn't. 

The master of talking about what schools the players have gone to.

#2615456 Sean Avery - Transition Season

Posted by Helmethead on 20 June 2015 - 10:13 AM

Avery always struck me as a guy who thought he was more valuable to a team than he really was. I'll always be grateful that Kenny used him as the main piece to trade for Mathieu Schneider. He had some very good seasons for the Wings.

I thought someone had said that the players don't actually write the articles.  At the bottom Avery is listed as "contributor."


I don't doubt he's a smart guy and definite marches to his own drummer, often in an interesting way off the ice.  On the ice he was an idiot though.  And he glosses over the part that he "decided" to retire because no one in the NHL wanted him anymore.  Avery had a great skillset, it just wasn't worth all the baggage and distractions that came with him anymore. 


He's still only 35 years old and could still be playing in the NHL if he ever figured out how to be a professional and a good teammate.

Yeah... If I had even a few grand right now, it would be a life changer. I can't pity his millions or give him any real sympathy at all.

He was, and still is, a classless dick.  He doesn't come off as even remotely sincere in the article.  Wow, he flew one flight economy class.  What a warrior.

I know not the best area, but is someone making a playoff wallpaper?

3 inches of snow


That's IT? Here thats a typical day. I've driven in alot worse. lol

Kudos to Nashville to making it a good experience; yes the snow amount may be less, but habitants in the south are not use to driving in weather with this much snow.



You drive like you usually drive. Just slower and more cautious. Leave room in between vehicles, don't slam on your brakes, and don't freak out. lol

#2571491 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

Posted by Echolalia on 17 February 2015 - 12:34 PM

I took it as more Kenny joking around because there was such a long period with no whistles. Or maybe Mickey wanted to say chime in and something but couldn't because of the ongoing action and Kenny knew that (after all, they can see each other and their body language whereas we only have their voices to go off of). Anyway I don't think there's any animosity between them because they typically have excellent chemistry and often joke around. I want to say that Kenny and Mickey celebrated Thanksgiving or Christmas or something recently, but I might be misremembering.
I also love all that Mickey has to offer as a color commentator. He is an entertaining individual, not the cookie-cutter type of boring, safe personality that you see so often in sports. The guy is passionate, and what I love the most about him is that he comes off as a fan of the game of hockey moreso than a fan of the Red Wings. Sure he loves the Wings, and it's his job to pass out praise to our team, but he doesn't shy away from passing out praise to players or coaches from other teams, hates weak penalties regardless of who gets the power play, and hates dangerous plays and dives regardless of who's doing them. It's good to have that kind of voice on tv, I think, instead of the mindless homer who puts his team above all others regardless of the situation as well as the game of hockey itself.
