#2361308 Kronwall destroyed a glass bowl on my desk with the power of his goal

The bowl was probably already damaged from the Kronner-Havlat hit and this goal just finished it off.




#2348964 WOW Cable Subscribers - FSD, FSD+ Issues During Wings Games

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 29 January 2013 - 10:51 PM

The last few games, especially the game on the night of 1/29/13 WOW Cable cable subscribers have had video quality issues that range from "annoying" to "unwatchable" to just plain no signal at all.

 

Here's an example of the way WOW Cable subscribers experience Detroit Red Wings Hockey:  https://www.facebook...200521990521174

 

Please understand WOW customers, you ARE alone in these issues.  Folks on these forums have reported NO issues with Comcast, U-verse, and DirecTV.  Only WOW Cable has these repeated outages affecting FSD and FSD+ and Red Wings' game coverage.

 

For those of you that are sick of missing hockey games and watching as the audio cuts in and out, there are a few things we can do:

 

1.  Report these unresolved issues to LARA (Licensing and Regulatory Affairs):  http://www.dleg.stat.../videocomp.html

2.  Light up WOW's marketing tool, their Facebook page:  https://www.facebook...owbuzz?filter=2

3.  Light up their Twitter feed:  https://twitter.com/TheWOWBuzz

4.  Call WOW and tell them that if you don't get service, they don't get paid.  Demand a partial refund.  Call them at (866) 496-9669.  Take option 3 (service issues) then option 1 (video service)

 

 

Light 'em folks, let them know we didn't wait this long to miss the 48 games that we do get!

Shootouts are stupid....

 

Ties are stoopider.

Why does it sound like a puck hitting the pipes every few seconds?  It's driving me nuts.

 

I'm watching FSD in HD through WOW Cable.

Considering our record in 'em, sure hope not many afternoon ones on NBC,

 

CROSBY, CROSBY, CROSBY!!!

 

Welcome to NBC Sports this afternoon in Detroit!  Now we're going to go to the CROSBY ISO CAM!  Crosby isn't playing today, so this is actually a live shot of him at home doing stretches to help loosen up his sprained [feminine part].




#2335143 Fleury pursuing charges against Graham James

The sentence was way too light.

Hats off to Fleury. Even if this creep didn't get what he deserved, Fleury is a role model for abused children telling them to take action.

You can say that again.

What a hugef****** break.

That's a terrible call; that should be a Nashville goal.

FSD just time-warped.

Yes Mickey, I agree, Ericsson sucks.

This isn't hockey...


#2273301 3/24 GDT : Hurricanes 4 at Red Wings 5

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 24 March 2012 - 10:30 AM

I rarely go to games but always watch at home. However, this time I bought tickets. I'm taking my parents and my 84 year old grandfather down for a tour of where I work downtown, then to get a Coney, then for a trip on the People Mugger over to the Joe.

Win this one for my grandpa! He's been having a tough time with the recent passing of my grandmother, so he needs this W!

I am glad that Theo is man enough to come forward and publically deal with this. Some men would not be strong enough to do so.


#2268057 Kronwall Destroys Voracek

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 07 March 2012 - 11:11 AM

NHL.com is promoting on it's front page the Kronwall-Voracek hit as one of the "Hits of the Year".

Hopefully this bodes well that the NHL folks are classifying it that way.
