#2167346 WCSF Game 4 GDT: Sharks 3 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Kira on 06 May 2011 - 10:59 AM

I'm not ready to give in yet. I'm not ready to change my allegiance to Boston yet. This can't be the end. I know that eventually it will come to an end, but not yet. One more night, guys, that's all I ask.

It makes me think of something my mom said to me a couple months before she passed away. "I haven't fought this long and this hard to give up this easily." She was talking about fighting cancer, but I think these words fit the boys well.

Don't go down without a fight, boys.

My faith is unwavering. I have always believed in the boys. That faith has not changed.

Frankly I hope this goes seven games and they kill each other.

My friend Betty was telling me that Cheli did an autograph session at a Verizon store in Okemos (near Lansing) the other day, and her niece was there. She's a huge Cheli fan. He was supposed to sign from 1-2, but he came in and started at 12:30, telling people, "I have to leave at 2 on the dot. I have to be at the Joe." She said he was gracious and kind, and he spent time with her niece, who is mentally challenged. He signed her jersey for her, took pictures with her, and Betty said Bonnie was "over the moon." I'll see if I can get some of her pictures to show you, but I thought you'd like that.

My first thought when I saw this was, "Relax, Reuben's gonna be fine. It's only a rabies shot."

#2153394 Have you got your RED on?

Posted by Kira on 19 April 2011 - 08:49 AM

My housemate made me a red and white beaded necklace before the season started. It has a 13 entwined in it as well. I put it on the first day of the season, and it has stayed on since. Before a game, I'll give the 13 a kiss for luck. So far, not bad. The string broke once - and it was the day he got hurt. It's a constant with me until the end of the season, and then I'll take it off and hang it up til September and camp.

Ah, my favorite time of year, when the creativity flows as freely as sap from the maple trees...

#2139492 Happy Birthday Mr. Hockey

Posted by Kira on 31 March 2011 - 12:34 PM

I had the honor and pleasure of meeting Gordie at Traverse City in 2006. A sweeter and gentler man you could not ask for. He tried to feed my dog Galen (rest his soul) a banana! Didn't work, and then he said, "He'd probably prefer a calf." :lol:

Happy birthday to one of the classiest people to ever lace up the skates. :clap:

I have two words for Mr. Hossa. Spoken by Doctor Dave in "Pirate Radio", I think they apply here.

I believe his apology about as much as I believe in politicians, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny.

#2132786 First Round of The Playoffs

Posted by Kira on 20 March 2011 - 12:56 PM

Travel wise I'd say Chicago. Also, it would be kinda neat to oust them in the opening round and bring down some egos a bit. God knows they deserve a ego deflation (their fans especially).

Record wise, I'd have to go with Calgary. We swept the season series, and I think we could make short order of them.

Who don't I want? Nashville, LA, Anaheim, Dallas...travel on three of the four, and I'm sick of Nashville.

Hopefully a day of rest will take care of both of them. We can only hope.

Heads up...Sheri's hubby is on his way home. Thank goodness.

#2124376 I've decided-Datsyuk for Captain

I can't believe you have turned this into a competition between these two amazing players. It's like comparing apples and oranges. You need to just appreciate them both for what they have and do, and leave it at that.

#2117220 Was '97 or '02 team better?

Posted by Kira on 16 February 2011 - 10:01 AM

Much as I loved the team in both '97 and '98 (and if any team needed a reason to rally round, we did in '98), I have to say the team in '02 was just phenomenal. I mean, look at the fourth line - two Hall of Famers on the fourth line - how many teams do you know who can make that claim? And it also gave us a chance to see a potential star for the first time...that year was proof that you really had to have something to crack the lineup as a rookie, and a certain someone did just that. And now look at where he is...

And this is a team ('02) where I can honestly say I remember exactly where I was when the whole thing turned around and I knew that it was ours. I can't say that about '97.
