#2207647 Everyone has rejoined the team for skating...except one player...

Posted by Kira on 14 September 2011 - 05:54 PM

He's there now, so...you aren't, I hope, going to get down on Pasha for not skating for almost a week. He had a very good reason.

IDK if it was just me, but at Hockeyfest today Kindl still looked pretty upset. He looked very rough and weary, wasn't very talkative, and had to have smiles coaxed out of him. I felt so bad for him. :((((

I know with certainty that this hit him very hard, and it is going to take a while to heal. I have a feeling he and Pasha both are going to be hard pressed to keep their minds on the game, and will be rather subdued next weekend. For those of us who will be there, a kind word passed on can't hurt.

Found this on nhl.com...

"When asked what needs to be done in order to move forward from Wednesday's tragedy...Datsyuk looked at his inquisitor with a blank stare and said, "pray".

There is more in the article...if you want to read it, it's at nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=587971

I agree with the parties above...this is not the time and place for a religious argument or anything remotely resembling one. This is a time for all of us to reminisce and to share our grief and condolences. By talking and sharing, we somehow lessen the burden we feel. But no religious arguments are needed here. Let us share our feelings and our grief in whatever manner we hope might lend some comfort.

I will always remember that sweet smile of Brad McCrimmon's. They will be missed terribly, and I know that fans in Colorado, St. Louis, Vancouver, New York, Dallas, Anaheim and all the other places that these people played and entertained the fans feel the same. We all lost some loved ones today.


The article is not that long, but it's Pasha...a very sad and subdued Pasha. My dear angel, know this - we love you, and we know the pain you're feeling.

I am just heartbroken over what happened this morning in Russia. I have a very fond memory of Brad McCrimmon giving my red carnation to Pasha for me. I will never forget it. What a terrible way to start the day, seeing the news. I think we all need to take a minute to cherish our friends and family, and remind ourselves how blessed we are to have them.

I am absolutely heartsick. I don't mind admitting I have been in tears since I read it. I had a red carnation to give to Pasha last year at camp, but I couldn't give it to him myself, so I asked Brad McCrimmon to give it to him for me, which he did. I saw him after the game and asked if Pasha got the carnation. Brad had a smile on his face and said, "Yes. He liked it." I will always be grateful to him for that small gesture.

My heart goes out to our brothers and sisters in St. Louis, who I know loved Pavol Dimitra for years. What a terrible, terrible piece of news. This has been the worst summer I can think of. Ever.

#2206233 Red Wings Sponsor?

These two crackpots who started this fiasco think they own the city of Grand Rapids. Their names are on everything in that town. DeVos also tried to run for governor, and got his ass kicked by Jennifer Granholm. He couldn't own everyone, thank God.

I'm with the one who said they would write a letter to protest this. I love my team, and I always will. The love for the Wings goes back almost 50 years (yes, I'm that old), longer than most marriages last. But this is too much.

That I could tolerate more than those idiots trying to pull a Ponzi scheme.

And I don't care if it doesn't pay the bills by calling it Howe Arena. At least we could hold our heads high doing so. Anything else, and I'd want to hide in shame.

I thought the debate would be about how Amway sucks and is a pyramid scheme, etc.

Anyone here ever sat through an Amway presentation? I did it once and I will never do it again because it really was a waste of time. You got your plan A and plan B and hey, you can be like Mark Zuckerberg if you have the enthusiasm!!!

Amway IS a pyramid scheme. I don't like this at all.

#2205165 Your Favorite Wings Lines Ever

Posted by Kira on 25 August 2011 - 09:48 PM

The infamous "Two Kids and a Goat" line. Pasha and Boyd Devereaux feeding Hullie and just killing the opposition. They may have been a third or fourth-tier line, but damn, they could do some serious damage when they wanted to.

Sorry, I'm a little short on sympathy this week.

#2203283 Bold predictions for the year!

Posted by Kira on 11 August 2011 - 11:19 AM

Guys, guys, guys...this is supposed to be a nice, friendly place.

I'm going to say that we're going to be a lot healthier this season.

Nick and Homer, if they do hang them up after this year, are going to go out in style.

Pasha is finally going to hit the 100-point plateau.

He's a lot smarter and quicker on his feet than he lets on. Don't let what you see fool you.
