In Topic: NHL players will not participate in 2018 Olympics (Mod Post #99)

I know it will kill my interest in Olympic hockey if I don't know any of the names.


It's the name on the front that matters.


Ahh I kid, I agree and can't say I look forward to watching the Red Army play a US amateur team again. Herb Brooks won't be around this time.

Is anyone beta testing the new Elder Scrolls Online??

I'm beta testing right now and not really enjoying it. The interface seems clunky. Games locked up 6 times already, which it's beta I get it, but still aggravating. I can't see me buying and paying monthly for it.

Glad I'm not the little women waiting for Patty to get home where he could really blow some steam off. I can't see him lasting the year.  Fired, breakdown, exhaustion, suspension something will bite him.

In Topic: Playoff traditions/superstitions

30 April 2013 - 04:11 PM

Hockey fans are a superstitious lot.  I do the bracelets, never wear red on game day unless it's Wings gear (all season), avoid the unlucky purple t-shirt on game day (all season), and have as my wallpaper a picture of the last Wing to score a goal.


I'm all set.  The stuff for the bracelets is set out, Ericsson is looking very handsome on my desktop, and unlucky clothing has been banished.


I also have a stash of Vernor's in the fridge, but that's a tradition rather than a superstition.


What do you do?

You can get Vernor's in N. Dak? The last time I visited a friend who lived in Alabama I asked what she wanted me to bring her. 3 cases of  Vernor's and 2 sacks of Bate's hamburgers did the trick. Before even asking me how my trip went she insisted on cracking a Vernor's first.

I remember when the Wings went all out and gunned for the Cup every year...

And the players we gunned for were happy we were gunning for them.


Looking at you Luc and Dom ;)
