If I ever again come up with a plan which involves making 6 pies in one day, please stop me.

#2082422 Make-A-Wish recipient gets to skate with Pavel & Hank

Posted by Jenny on 21 December 2010 - 09:38 PM


Jordan Cole will finally get his wish to skate with Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg on Wednesday.

The invitation to skate with the Red Wings' two best two-way players was extended to Cole last season through the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan.

Cole, who grew up playing hockey in Fraser and Berkley, was diagnosed four years ago with cystic fibrosis. He broke his right ankle playing hockey last January and had to have microfracture surgery in March -- the day before he was originally scheduled to skate with the Wings.

They'd already sent him a personalized hockey jersey and told him they'd grant his wish after he got back on his skates.

Cole, now a 19-year-old freshman at Macomb Community College and rookie forward on an adult rec hockey team, will get to skate with Datsyuk and Zetterberg after the morning practice at Joe Louis Arena. Then Cole and nine family members and friends will return to watch the Wings play against the Canucks.

Patrick Eaves is mildly amused:

#2071719 Osgood will start on Saturday... JMac sent down to GR

Posted by Jenny on 01 December 2010 - 10:25 PM

He'll be fine, even if the game is a loss. The entire team is usually the cause of a loss, not just the goalie and Ozzie knows this.

Yeah, of all the goalies out there, Ozzie seems to be one of the ones most able to roll with the punches and not internalize losses badly. I know sometimes that is frustrating to fans, when there's a bad loss and he's just shaking it off, but that's got to be better for a goalie's mental longevity than a long rant about self-blame.

Oh, and also: OZZIE! OZZIE! OZZIE! OZZIE! :D

#2070669 LGW Fit Club

Posted by Jenny on 30 November 2010 - 07:10 AM

The Wii Fit is pretty good. The hula hoop game and the rhythm boxing are decent for cardio, and the yoga stretches are nice. The strength training is not so great, I've found. For strength it might be better to get a couple of small dumbbells and do a basic routine like this one: Building Muscle and Bone—At Home, On Your Own. When I'm really focused I can do that in about 15 minutes, but I leave out the step ups, because that's so similar to running on the elliptical.

Another option for working out at home-- if your cable/satellite has On Demand, it should have a section of Free On Demand shows, which contain a channel called Exercise TV with a whole bunch of workouts to choose from. The catch is that the descriptions don't really say how advanced each workout is or if it needs any special equipment, so you might have to try a few before you find a good one. I accidentally picked one this morning that was way more advanced than I was ready for. Yow! I could only do about half of it before my legs felt too wobbly to do any more. :blush: They seem to have all levels of workout, though, if you can find the right one!

#2065939 Why I'm Thankful Babcock is the Wing's coach

Posted by Jenny on 20 November 2010 - 06:00 PM

Babcocks hair would hop off his head and pimp slap all 3 of those guys.

And then the McGill tie would strangle all three of them. At the same time. Coach wouldn't even have to tell it to do so-- it would just know.

#2058526 11/5 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Oilers 1

Posted by Jenny on 05 November 2010 - 11:06 PM

but much respect for him stepping up to back up Dats

It was also good to see Ericsson right there after Abby got pushed into the net, glaring at the Oilers like he was daring them to try to hurt Abby while he was down. The big lug may learn to use his size after all. :thumbup:

i like the last pic on that page. babcock standing there is pretty funny.

I was kind of thinking it must be a cardboard cutout of Babs, because why would he be up in the stands during warmups?

But then, this leads to the question of why on earth someone would make or obtain a lifesize cardboard cutout of Mike Babcock and bring it to a game. :blink:

I'd like to see Perry and Iginla fight to the death.

So, just one punch from Iginla and it's all over, then?

#2040220 Jimmy Howard not going with new mask

Posted by Jenny on 03 October 2010 - 09:28 PM

I'm glad. The Doc Ock one was interesting, just not quite Wing-ish enough for me. The tachmask is one of the best masks I've seen.

He probably also believes the world is going to end in 2012, and hey if it does we wont have to hear his predictions anymore :thumbup:

That's it! That explains everything! He's getting his hockey predictions by misinterpreting the Mayan calendar!

#1981812 We got more out of you thread.....

Posted by Jenny on 09 May 2010 - 01:27 AM

Definitely Howard. I was so, so, SO wrong about him!

I'm really happy with this young group of grinders, too. Eaves, Helm, and Miller proved to be something exciting. They all had strong seasons. Abdelkader is a total energy guy, and I really hope we see him full time next year.

And... Bertuzzi. I was expecting him to be kind of useless like he was in his first go-round with Detroit, but there were more than a few games through December and January where he provided pretty much all the offense. Since they were struggling so hard to just stay in the playoff picture at that point, he was a big part of the reason they were able to climb back in after the injured guys started to recover. No, he's not what he was in his prime, but he filled an important role and I give him a lot of credit for being able to swallow his pride enough to learn how to play a crash the net, Holmstrom-esque game instead of trying desperately to be the sniper he was ten years ago.

#1972799 No Worries

For me it's like this.

I say the Wings will win in 6 or 7 games.

If they lose a third game, I'll say they'll win in 7.

If they lose a fourth game, I'll wait for next season and say they'll win then.

I believe they can win any game and any series until I have definitive proof otherwise.

I'm a fan. This is what I do.
