#2237184 The Hottest Red Wing

Posted by puckloo39 on 19 December 2011 - 09:26 AM

I loved Luc :wub: Back when I used to go to San Jose on business in the early 2000's, I would meet my Shark fan friend for games in SJ. The Sharks used to be sort of adorable ten years ago, until they started whoopin' up on us. <_<

Anyway, we went to McCormick and Schmick's for dinner one evening, when the Wings were in town... like, kind of hoping, you know? Their hotel (San Jose Fairmont) was next door, across a courtyard from Mick and Schmick's. As we went in the front door, a group of very tall and well-dressed men were leaving. Luc Robitaille held the door open for us. He kind of bowed and waved us through, smiling. My eyeballs were about even with his pecs, which was a rather nice view, in and of itself. :D

Mac and Shanny pretty much ran over us, but Luc was a gentleman. I recall that he smelled really good.

The next morning, I went to Starbucks (behind the hotel) and got coffees. My friend was still in bed at our hotel, so she missed out. Neener~ D-Mac was there, and he held the door open for me, smiling so sweetly with his missing teeth. I adored him, too, and told him so! He said was very happy to know that, and his side-kick, Avery, was laughing.

My one and only D-Mac autograph says "To Linda, You ROCK! love Darren McCarty" - I love you, too, Mac. :)

As much as everyone hates Avery now, he was a very cute puppy-rookie Wing. He cleaned up very nicely. I had seen him the night before the game, sitting alone in a courtyard area outside the hotel, so I went over to say hi. He was surprised that I knew who he was and so pleased with the attention. It was very sweet. I still remember what he had on - olive green silk turtle neck and darker olive trousers, with a gold chain that was worth more than my car (new), and gorgeous Italian loafers. The guy could dress, even then!

And those are my decade-old Wing stories. Haven't seen them much since, so I don't have anything to add (yet!)

Thanks for the GDT, Mike! :thumbup:

I love west coast games, I can actually get home in time to see the entire game :thumbup:

I am really shocked, if this proves to be true. Shame on him, and I hope he gets what's coming to him. :no:

I can hear the Penguin fans' excuses already. As for the Wings... there are no excuses. Destroy whatever is out there for the Penguins tonight, please?

here's to a big win tonight, and a lively GDT. Go, Wings!!!

#2235160 Crosby has "concussion symptoms"

Posted by puckloo39 on 12 December 2011 - 10:12 PM

Seriously, I know he is a good player, but the efforts to make him the best and the face of the NHL has made me dislike the kid. There are other young players who work hard and are great fun to watch - we have a few - who will not get the media hype, but who are still also good for the game. Hard work and heart - to me, that's what the game is all about.

I hate for any player to go out like this, but his time might be over. Seems that he has a hard time coming back from the injury, much as he might want to.

I think we may have seen the last of him at least for the regular season.

Agreed, it's hard to post pages of "WOOHOOO!! Mule/Bert/Huddie/etc." when they get to 5, 6, 7 goals and no push-back from the other team, no mistakes to critique, nothing to complain about. :lol:

I want to thank Mike for making us the stellar game day threads, and not to be discouraged about lack of posting when everyone is just wallowing in the greatness of this team, like last night. We do appreciate your efforts, it's not that we don't love your work and appreciate it. :thumbup:

I am more :rolleyes: about the media brushing off a hum-dinger of a game and giving the Wings no props for winning it. Penguins got a headline because they won without Crysby. Now, that's newsworthy. I bet his team mates love it when he's out, so they get mentioned.

I hope Huddie has found his stride, tiny though it might be, it could be mighty!! :D

Woohoo! Love the early GDT, thanks, Mike! I am so pleased for Winnipegians (?) that they have a hockey team again. That said, let's crush their hopes and dreams, Wings!


Poor Eaves. He looks like this now :shutup: Can't wait to see :yowza: again. Soon, get well quick, Patty.

I think paying the snowplow guy to plow them in so they have to come out and hand-shovel their way of of their drive way is much more fun.

Unless, you're a really good aimer and can make sure the snowballs all smack 'em in the head and then the snow falls down their backs under their collars, and into their underwear. Yes. I have thought this out. :blush:

oops! Hi, Karen! Caramel, I think.

chapped lips or itchy dry skin?

What I'm thinking right now is that somebody negged you for speaking reasonably instead of dumping all the blame on Conklin.

yes, probably. I will stop being reasonable, right now. :lol:
