#2347371 Hudler's Father

Posted by puckloo39 on 27 January 2013 - 11:58 AM

I lost my mom and dad when I was in my twenties, one to a long-term debilitating illness/stroke and the other to catastrophic cancer with just one-year survival. after diagnosis.  It was a while ago, but one doesn't get over it soon. This will doubtless affect Jiri, so I hope he has a support system.  It weirds me out a bit to know that people my age still have living parents - especially when they are not close to them while they are all alive and have the opportunity to be a family.  In a way, I was lucky to know my time with them both was limited.  I treasured the time I had with them on Earth.


T, you know I am thinking of you.  I know you're strong and will deal with this situation accordingly.  One of my acquaintances once said, "I don't know how you dealt with losing both your parents when you were so young."   I don't recall being given a choice, actually.  You play the hand you are dealt, if you're smart. 


You're smart!  I know you will be a winner in this game, and will handle it magnificently.

Sorry about about groin, Sammy... but YEAH!!    I love Gus Gus!   Can't wait to see him on the ice!

Bert.  From his sickbed. 

#2342715 Everyone chill out!

Our guys need to play with more energy and speed. I'm just not sure if they are capable of doing that though....


this is also my fear...

The Wings play badly and floated [insert your own joke here] because "they have not been playing in a while, they have new faces, they have a new coach, they [insert excuse/reason here]." OK.  The other team has the same situation, typically.  What is it about the Wings that makes them disappear in statement games like last night's?


I am certainly not throwing them under the bus, but it's a logical question:   If they are rusty and don't have their game legs, and all the other teams have been under the same restrictions and also haven't played -- how come other teams play well and hand the Wings their jock straps in games like last night's?   Ew.


Of course they will get better - could hardly be worse - but I just have to wonder in my out-loud voice what, if anything, they were thinking, with that performance.

2103, the Year of the Groin.  Sigh...

#2338118 Tomas Holmstrom Retires

Posted by puckloo39 on 07 January 2013 - 09:21 AM

One of my very favorite Wings, I will miss you, Homer. The goalies in the league celebrate the departure of your large red butt. I will never forget you scoring from every possible angle in 2002, all while falling down or sitting on your afore-mentioned rosy derriere. Best of everything, friend. Enjoy retirement and playing pick up hockey with Nick in Sweden.

How mean.   :nervous:   Poor Kenny, he's not to blame for all of this... but he's a face they recognize and everyone else has disappeared.   Hope for better days in 2013.

Parsley. But I once was a true lover of rosemary, however....


thyme. It's about... thyme.

Riddle or pun?

Firm. Like, muscular shoulders and ... wait was that my out-loud voice?

modern or antique?

Z has more hockey soul in one beard follicle than Bettman has in all of the sparse foliage on his noggin.

#2326780 The person below me game...

Posted by puckloo39 on 24 August 2012 - 08:06 PM

I do have to get mine tended to, but I don't mind. It's 13 years old, and has been so faithful and good. I buy it whatever it wants, since it doesn't ever ask for much. :wub:

The person below me cooked dinner tonight and now the house smells like a restaurant. :nervous:

#2325735 Hannan signs with Nashville

Posted by puckloo39 on 17 August 2012 - 06:46 PM

I liked him as a Shark. Did we even offer him anything, or does just no one want to sign with Detroit?
