#2469444 Hockeytown authentics is not really authentic

Posted by ACallToArms on 01 January 2014 - 10:17 AM

Ugh, Reeeeebok!!!!!  I knew this was going to happen sooner or later.  I haven't shopped for a jersey in a while, but when looking for a winter classic authentic I ran into the Indonesian made "authentic" edge jerseys (indo-edge).  I wouldn't mind if they dropped the price on these, but they're still charging a premium.  And as stated above, they market them as "what the pros wear" which is a lie.


You used to be able to get a real good quality replica back in the day, when CCM, Koho, Nike, etc made them.  Materials were nice, constructions was great, and they last forever.  Reebok replicas are not as nice, with thin material.  Looks like the authentics are going down the same path.


There are still ways to get authentic Edge 2.0 jerseys just like the team wears, some Canadian shops sell them. Frozen Pond had them, but they look to be sold out.  You can get the regular team jersey though: http://www.frozenpon...ey-jerseys.html


It's Canadian made, and is the exact item they're going to wear on the ice.

#2469442 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Posted by ACallToArms on 01 January 2014 - 10:07 AM

Wish I was going to this one :confused:   I would have been there if they had it last year, but now I have responsibilities, other things to spend money on, blah blah blah.


Hope everyone who's at the game has a blast, looks like the weather will be perfect for an outdoor game.

#2466183 Leafs/Wings 24/7 Episode 1 Discussion (12/14)

Posted by ACallToArms on 19 December 2013 - 03:05 PM

I was underwhelmed by the episode.  I felt like HBO was just calling it in with this one, going through the motions.  About half way through the toaster scene, I was like "CAN WE PLEASE MOVE ON??"



If anyone has not seen the episode, the full episode is on NHL.com




Why do I even pay for HBO.........

Me, minus ~ 40 pounds... at the gym, my "other" home.  ;)




Man, now the owner of Cobo Joes is really going to be all over you!

#2331585 Russians Possibly Staying In KHL After Lockout

I think Z, and the rest of the players, are just and frustrated with the situation. They'll be back.

#2283285 Darren Helm out for playoffs with lacerated wrist

Posted by ACallToArms on 12 April 2012 - 08:18 AM

Seriously, after having this happen to two of our guys, can the Wings brass make some sort of arm protection mandatory? The longer gloves, anything. Like Mickey keeps saying, I don't think the extra mobility you get from the shorter gloves is worth risking potentially season ending injuries over.

I doubt Helm will be back for the playoffs. Hope he has a quick recovery and can bounce back from this.

#2277099 Quincey suspended 1 game

Posted by ACallToArms on 03 April 2012 - 07:11 AM

Looks like Quincey was trying to Kronwall Kopecky, and failed. Needs some extra training from the master on how to get those brutal hits off in a clean fashion.

#2248966 Props to the DJ at the Joe

Posted by ACallToArms on 24 January 2012 - 12:12 PM

I don't think I'll ever get tired of hearing "Don't Stop Believin'" at the Joe. I've always associated the song with the Wings, everyone else is just ripping us off. Also, who cares about the whole "South Detroit" thing? He put it in because it sounds good in the song. Detroit has a south... it's the riverwalk, Ren Cen, etc... just deal with it and enjoy :)

The Shanahan Jig will forever be one of my favorite player-specific tunes.

#2246770 Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium Finalized

Posted by ACallToArms on 18 January 2012 - 08:47 AM

Although I'm kind of disappointed that the game won't be hosted in Detroit, I'm excited that we get a Winter Classic. I will be going, money is no object!!! :)

Is it bad that I'm actually more excited to watch this game than the Lions + Saints today??? :cool:

Ok... maybe equally as excited.



#2236477 Best Red Wings Books

Posted by ACallToArms on 16 December 2011 - 10:48 AM

Not a book, but I own this DVD and I think its a must have for a Red Wings fan. It has documentaries covering the 97,98, and 02 cup championships. It also has five complete games, ones that fans voted on as being the 5 greatest Red Wings games. I watch this during the summer to get my hockey fix while waiting for October :)


#2232927 Lightning Replica Jerseys with RFID Chips

Posted by ACallToArms on 05 December 2011 - 11:30 AM

After reading that article this is just like the frequency cards you get at the grocery store and other stores too. They're offering discounts for wearing them to home games which is smart to get more of the home colors present during games. This really isn't more than what everyone else has already mentioned.

I agree, it really is just like the discount cards. Instead of scanning the cards, your chip is automagically read, which speeds up the whole process. While RFID chips can be used for evil, most of the time they have legitimate uses. The conspiracy theorists have just given them a bad name overall.
