#2565429 New Zealand and South African Hockey?

You've probably not heard of our hockey down here because we have maybe 1500 players countrywide, though it is one of the fastest growing sports. The haka itself is a traditional war challenge, performed by the Maori, our indigenous people. We're pretty proud of our culture hence its incorporation into the sporting arena. I was privileged enough to perform the haka when I played for the NZ lacrosse team at the World Cup in Canada 2006. (Another minority sport with about 150 senior players in total!). There's the occasional uproar here about the overuse of the haka, but I reckon it's pretty cool, shows off our little country and gets people like yourselves who wouldn't otherwise know who we are talking about us!

Or just tell him they're playing the Senators.

No way will Babcock coach this team if he has to learn to pronounce "Anthanasiou."  He still has nightmares about Fill-a-poo-la.

Proof that speed and time-travel are connected. Because I have just seen the future of the Red Wings. :bye:

#2552711 11/30 GDT - Canucks 3 at Red Wings 5

Posted by captain2005 on 30 November 2014 - 06:13 AM

Please someone tell me we can beat the Canucks. I live in Kelowna, it's about a 4 hours drive from Vancouver. They have some of the most irritating goddamn fans in the world. Bunch of delusional band wagon jumping know nothing crybabies.  I will be absolutely devastated if we can't beat them. Our goalie plays better. We have more heart, and they haven't beaten us in regulation in like three years. And my dog is wearing her lucky Red Wings collar and bandana (Dekeyser is her favorite). So someone give me some support, tell me how they will grind them out. LGRW

#2552706 Mantha getting closer.

Mantha with an assist and 3 shots tonight. Pulks with 3 helpers and Callahan with 2 goals.

#2551472 11/24 GDT : Ottawa Senators 3 at Red Wings 4

what a great GDT for the guys who love this stuff... it's a work of art, Mikey.   This will be my last game until next week to watch, as I am going to visit people who don't like hockey over Thanksgiving.  They'll get all pissy if I disappear for three hours to watch the Wings.  Worse than being locked up in the Joe Louis bathroom with Pee-air, for sure. 




Wings need to win for me, as I am sacrificing watching them for the next two games.   LGW!!   We shall prevail...

I wonder what happened
Ken holland texted "false alarm, on our way to new York."

I was kicking. A tire and thought I hurt my foot, everything is fine.
