#2593360 2015 Round 1 Photoshop War: Tampa Bay Lightning

My favorite time to read this board.  It's usually so clever.


As far as Stevie goes, he put himself into target range the day he became GM.  No mercy given here...all bets are off.  Fire away!

I hope it's 13.  When the time comes.

I did not watch one minute of the game last Sunday.  I watched the Puppy Bowl instead.  Lots more fun.

#2535436 Datsyuk or Fedorov?

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.

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

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:

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.

#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.

#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.

I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner but with all the injuries I shouldn't be surprised.  I guess that means I'll see him on the 5th when I go to the Griffins game.

For a moment, I honestly thought I was watching a remake of "Slap Shot".

Yeah, well, like I said, it's nice to be the benefactor for a change.  We're long overdue for some breaks.
