#1928750 The Blackhawks are Done

Ok folks. Had a chance to drive by there today and check it out. At first I was concerned I missed it, maybe its hard to see, but kept driving on just in case. Sure enough... there it was in all of its splendor. Impossible to miss. I literally nearly caused a violent pile-up because I was laughing so hard that I couldn't see. I regained control of my car and start at the painting in awe.

The mural towers impressively at least eight stories high, Jonathon's nose taking up nearly half of those floors. Folks... pictures do not do this thing justice. It has to be seen in person. Like the grand canyon or the Eiffel tower, this monument is a true spectacle to behold.

#1927893 Oh How I Hate the Capitals

Have you been to any other NHL arenas? What you describe is widespread, not just in Washington. Try attending a game in Chicago, or Anaheim. Your entire argument makes no sense to me. You are angry that the Caps have a substantial fanbase instead of a half-full arena. This entire baseless tirade screams of inane jealously more than anything else.

You use false examples like the 'fans' (as if they are one singular entity, every single person shouting together [yet also say all the bandwagoners are on their blackberrys not paying attention])screaming for diving on a high stick. Did this actually happen? Or are you just creating the context of an overgeneralized example of the things that happen in EVERY single NHL arena? As I said in my earlier post... stop going to the games if you are this sensitive about fans being fans. Get over it, man.

The Man With No Nickname

#1927831 Jimmy Howard a ?

Posted by hooon on 29 March 2010 - 03:17 PM

As great as he has been, he's still a question mark in terms of playoffs. Everyone knows that the playoffs are a totally different beast. I think you're right in that he probably will be good for us based on his recent play, however that doesn't make him a guaranteed playoff performer yet. It all remains to be seen.

Having that much hatred towards anything involving sports is just sad and pathetic. I live in Chicago and deal with the absurdity of Hawks fans, as well as years of terrible management. I claim to "hate" them, because they chant DETROIT SUCKS and have no hockey knowledge whatsoever...

But seriously man... calm down. It is a sport. A game. For entertainment. They aren't even 'your' team, as you have displayed yourself to be a Wings fan. You just gave a lengthy analysis of every way the Capitals aren't the Red Wings. There are 28 other teams who aren't the Red Wings either. You failed to mention where this blinding, hysterical rage comes from. Because their management isn't as good as the Wings?

I suggest you stop going to Caps games. Stop watching Caps games. Stop watching hockey. Clearly, it has a major negative effect on you emotionally, even leading you to become violent. Just remove yourself from hockey all together if your disillusions have angered you to the point of hatred and potential violence. Jeez.

#1927165 Babcock: Goaltending the best since I've been here

Howard gives up waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many rebounds. There I said it.

Can't say I totally agree with Babs there, but like others have stated, I don't think he put nearly as much stock in that comment than people are taking from it. Just praising his goalie is all.

#1916059 Report: Hawks' Campbell Out For Season

Posted by hooon on 15 March 2010 - 01:40 AM

Wow. I was at the game today and saw a few replays. Didn't look good. Looked like he lost an edge at the wrong time, and Ovechkin never let up. Their defense hasn't been nearly as good lately and this could hurt them even more. Sure will be interesting.

#1915885 Teams that Should Have Never Changed their Jerseys

Posted by hooon on 14 March 2010 - 07:30 PM

Yeah, they had the purple/gold Lakers style jerseys.

Those were cool, but I'd take the Gretzky era ones better. I don't know if ripping off the Lakers would work now.

Yeah I think they lost their chance with those colors. Lol at the Carolina Rosebud jerseys.

The jerseys that get me are the third jerseys of the Lightning and the Senators. Just dark jerseys with BOLTS and SENS written across the front. Looks sooo tacky and embarrassing.

#1915776 Ovie ejected

Posted by hooon on 14 March 2010 - 03:09 PM

Nasty hit, he saw nothing but numbers the whole way and he hammered him anyway. I love Ovie, but i'm getting really tired of all the dirty hits he dishs out. It doesn't help that the NHL refuses to suspend him no matter what he does.


Actually he has already been suspended once this year and received a game misconduct today. Dunno where this 'NHL refusal' is that you speak of.
