#2535436 Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Posted by Kira on 03 September 2014 - 04:45 AM

Say what  you will, but there is an intangible here.  It's called attitude.  One has an attitude that is a little hard to work with.  One has an attitude that you love to see.  I'll let you figure out which is which.  Some might think that means next to nothing, but you'd be  surprised.


HHOF?  One, maybe.  One, I should think  so.  Again, I'll let you figure out which is which.

#2533728 Who is YOUR most under-appreciated/unsung Red Wing?

Oh boy,  I'd have to say Homer too, but Drew Miller runs close in the race too.

I have been absent recently (but so, it seems, has everyone else), but I have to tell you what happened.


I always send Pasha a happy birthday message - doesn't matter where I am, when July 20 rolls around he gets a message from me.  This year was no different.  I was camping in the UP, and it came around.  So I sent him a very nice birthday message.


This time I got a thank you back from him.!  :wub:  And it said, "See you in Traverse City soon."  Well, not this year, honey - cardiology appointments trump camp (no, not me - my heart's fine...it's the boss's genetic heart problems we're taking care of).  But at least I got a thank you this time...very cool.  :w00t:

#2511261 4/18 ECQF Game 1 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Bruins 0. DET leads series 1-0

Posted by Kira on 18 April 2014 - 09:21 PM

My housemate isn't talking to me (a die hard Bruins fan).  And I have all I can do to keep the smirk off my face.  Inwardly, I'm singing "Happy Happy Joy Joy", and outwardly keeping as straight a face as I can.  What a beautiful goal my Pasha scored, and how wonderful that it was he who wielded the dagger for tonight.   Thank ye, me darlin'...'tis grateful I am to you.  :wub:

#2509505 2014 Round 1 Photoshop War: Boston Bruins

Posted by Kira on 14 April 2014 - 09:48 AM

I have to be so circumspect this time...my housemate is a die hard Boston fan.  I really have to tread lightly until this is over.  Of course, if we win, it will get worse, but I don't care.  GO WINGS!!!!

That leaves such a creepy image in my head.  :bad:  Must find something to counteract the illness!

I love the fans in Winnepeg.  They call him "Mario's pool boy".  He's cornering the market on ****** baggery, that's for sure.  Let's put it this way, if we do get them, it's open season - not one player is safe from slamming and Photoshopping the hell out of them.  I've seen more diving from them than the loons on the lakes around  here.  But I love the loons.

Loo, I am recording the game where they inducted Dom.  I did the whole game because I didn't know if they talked to him during the game or not.  I also don't know if there was a pregame show or not - I only got what Direct TV let me have.  So if it's not all of it, I apologize in advance.  Hopefully it will be in your hands by the weekend.

He does look like he could still lace 'em up and win a game, doesn't he?

#2493116 Patrick Eaves First Game as a Predator

Posted by Kira on 08 March 2014 - 09:01 AM

I hope they know what a good penalty killer he is.  But more than that, I hope they know what a treasure of a person he is.  And they'll love Reuben too...he's such a cutie!


Patrick, I miss you already...my birthday buddy.

Me too.  I look at that pic of Patrick and Reuben and my eyes fill with tears.  He and I had a cosmic connection.  Our birthdays were the same day...he's Patrick and I'm Pat, and his middle name (Campbell) is my maiden name.  I told him that the last time I saw him  (in GR) and he looked at me and said, "You're kidding."  I wasn't.  We laughed and he said,"That's weird."  But I loved him for it.


Bless you, my friend.  I shall miss your smiling face..and dear Reuben too.



:bye2: :crybaby:

#2482517 Kris Letang Suffers Stroke

Posted by Kira on 08 February 2014 - 10:21 AM

Sometimes it takes something like this to bring a problem to the surface.  My husband had a stroke at 33  Scared the absolute hell out of both of us.  But it showed something that we knew he had, but hadn't been properly diagnosed.  They did an EEG (electroencephalogram), and it showed that he has temporal lobe epilepsy.  We knew he had the problem but they told us that up until that time, they didn't really know how to read the EEGs to find it (this was the mid-80's, mind you).


Since then, we know that science has vastly improved.  By something like this happening now, it might just have saved his life.  Hopefully with time to heal, proper medication and care, he can have a long life.  May cut his career short, but in the long run that would probably be a small setback.  Good luck, Kris - I hate your team with a purple passion, but I wish you well.

And you'll let him take your trash out any time he wants to, right?  ;)
