Ehrhart gets a Babs glare for that one. <_<


#2211227 9/30 Exhibition GDT: Toronto Maple Leafs at Red Wings

Posted by puckloo39 on 01 October 2011 - 10:42 AM

well, we will agree to disagree, HoH. I think they look lazy and disinterested. I am so sorry if they're bored. I work with a cadre of "professionals" who coast along, entertaining themselves, and leave the work to "someone else." Daily. It's a bad habit.

I want the Wings to show up EVERY game and act like they work there and that they should win the game. The fact that they don't and aren't interested in regular season games is, frankly, beneath them. I do realize that work ethic is a thing of the past, and I am a throw-back dinosaur for wanting this team to show up 60 minutes per game. Silly me.

They are not ready. They show the same lack of chemistry they did last season. The only way to fix that is for the players to decide to play as a team... if they don't, we're in for another season of last minute wins (which they didn't deserve) and losses where the whole team is responsible, but the goalies take the heat.

Perhaps this is just too similar to my workplace, eerily so, actually. I have come to expect little from my coworkers, as they sit around and wait for someone else to show up and do the work. I really don't like seeing that same ethos in the Red Wings -- but do acknowledge that it's acceptable in today's world. I hold them accountable as a team.

Hope they decide to play and work hard before April.

Like Jack Benny, I am 39, forever.

And now that I've said that, you know I am not 39.



But I still love him. :wub:

Hooray, GDT!! Thanks, Mike!! I wish TWC would air NHL Network here. :(


#2208293 Wings watchable Online?

Posted by puckloo39 on 20 September 2011 - 12:39 PM

I killed the cable bill to save some money. Now hockey season has rolled around and I'd love to be able to watch the Wings again. I know there used to be a Center Ice Online. Is it called GameCenter now? In any event, I live in an area where I'd be burned by Blackout Restrictions. Is there a service I can subscribe to to watch them live? I don't mind paying. Also, I have an Android phone. I know GameCenter Live is an option on Verizon but Blackouts would still apply. Is there a way to spoof the GPS?

I guess I asked a lot of questions, but I'd really appreciate any help you'd be able to offer. Thanks.


I have only watched online for the past three years, same reason as you...$$$. They're teeny-tiny on my screen, but I can see them! :D

I am at work and don't have the bookmarks here but will post them or PM them to you later, OK? There are some good options out there.

Dallas Stars to wear Skrastins #37 decal on their helmets this season, to honor their fallen team mate. I do hope the Wings do something similar for Brad, Rusty and Stefan.


#2207664 Ode to Texas Summer Weather

Posted by puckloo39 on 14 September 2011 - 07:24 PM

Damn, I am so disappointed no on caught my reference. :(


Sorry, winter is a foreign concept to us. We're busy running from devastating wildfires and such.

Broken-hearted -- but not broken. We will arise from the ashes.

Dawn, as usual, you are empathetic and "get it" - how terrible this all is. Thank you for posting that article on Bastrop.

I have spent hours last weekend and will again go down to Bastrop this coming Sunday, to help organize relief supplies and try to do what I can. It's overwhelming at times... but people are so generous, it's just crazy.

Thanks again!!

I don't like Toews (understatement) but he didn't mean to do that. Accident. Hope the kiddo is OK.

I loved Pavol... what a sweet guy, class act all the way. This is just wrecking me emotionally... I can't imagine what all the families are going through. What a waste. So sad.

I am just devastated... I've cried all afternoon over this. Rusty signed my jersey when I was in Nashville with Kristi. Rest in peace, Rusty, Brad and Stefan. :(

We lost a lot of the NHL family today, so very sad and untimely.

Does this weight class make him a jumbo Jet? ;)

I think the bigger problem is the rumor that he is currently weighing in at 286 pounds.


As Brett Hull used to say, "I am in shape. Round is a shape." :P


#2205606 Happy Birthday Jack!

Happy birthday, Jack. You're the guy who usually has to start the birthday threads, so I am glad someone started one for you! :D

Have a great day!!!


#2203661 The person below me game...

Posted by puckloo39 on 14 August 2011 - 11:07 AM

Karen, sweetie... I was thinking more along the lines of lazing on a sunny beach with a good book vacation. But medication could be good, too.

I assume you are not going to "transcend dental medication"? ;)

I have been to Arkansas on numerous occasions. I didn't stay long in any case.

The person below me want to come over and help me sort my hockey memorabilia today.
