In Topic: Is the Stanley Cup really the hardest trophy in all of pro sport?

All the North American pro sports trophies are made of sterling silver. This means they are all relatively the same hardness.

In Topic: So I Met Some NHLers Yesterday

23 February 2012 - 06:35 PM

My only brushes with NHLers come from work.
I work downtown at Bestbuy (don't make fun) and Leafs come in pretty regularly. First guy I met since working there was Ron Wilson. He bought the nicest Mac laptop we have from myself and we just conducted business regularly. When he was skimming through his wallet I asked "What do you think of the team this year?" (this was my first indication I gave as to knowing who he was) He responded, "Best team Toronto has had since Sundin has been gone-what kind of discount can I get?" He seriously didn't take a breath between sentences. I offered him the 'student' discount which is to say $100 off in lieu of buying a service plan for $450. He said "Do I have to do anything?" and I let him know that I'd take care of it. He then asked for my card and he gave me his along with some nice gold seat tickets for the second home game of the season. The best NHL souvenir I now own is Ron Wilson's business card.

Since then he referred JM Liles and Lupul to the store and they got in touch with me. They were furnishing there new condos with home theatre stuff. Both were nice enough guys and Lupul brought tickets to the store. He also left tickets on his counter for the installers.

After I helped them out I texted Ron about the Wings game in TO and let him know they were my favourite team and he made some comment about them "being a good, but easy choice to cheer for". He had someone drop off the same Gold seat tickets to the store in an envelope with my name on it.

Funniest thing about all this is how badly I wanted Wilson to be fired before I started getting hook-ups lol.

As far as goal songs, I know we have a bunch, but they seem to be playing that "The Whip" song a lot now :thumbdown: . Wish they would go back to "Get ready for this".....grew up with it; love it.

I hate this song because it is the Leafs goal song... for every leaf goal.
