#2114748 Forsberg Joins Avalanche

Posted by Jenny on 11 February 2011 - 04:12 PM

Forsberg has ankles of a 19 year old now? :o


Yes, but the 19 year old in the wheelchair is gaining on him FAST to take them back!

Apparently, experimental psychologists have proven that women are more attracted to men who wear red. But I think we all knew that already. Posted Image

I award Turco one entire internet for that.

I wouldn't go. Put that money towards a flight in to Detroit Metro and Wings tickets!

#2094563 Little things that bother you..

Posted by Jenny on 09 January 2011 - 12:02 PM

College textbook prices. Except that's not a little thing, it's a large thing. $160 for a "book" that's not a book at all-- it's all the contents of the book printed on loose paper and wrapped in plastic, which I have to put in a binder if I don't want it all to get lost. $160 and they can't even give me a freakin' binder to put it in. Then for my other class I have the choice of getting the physical book for $135 used or $180 new, or renting the e-book version for $81, meaning I can only print a very limited amount of it and I won't be able to access it after the end of the semester.

College textbooks are SUCH A SCAM!


#2090233 Howard, Stuart, Eaves possible Tuesday against the Oil

Posted by Jenny on 03 January 2011 - 10:20 PM

I would really like to see Ozzie and Howard getting a more equal number of starts and competing for the number one spot. They're buddies, they can take it. It really doesn't make much sense to me to keep pushing and pushing Howard.

OZZIE! :D :wub: :w00t2:

Boy, did he ever earn that one!


#2085224 Cleary out 4 weeks w/fractured ankle

Posted by Jenny on 27 December 2010 - 02:27 PM

Oh for....

I thought he would be fine, since he went back out after the initial puck hit. Damn.

Insert standard commentary about the team overcoming adversity and guys needing to step up here. Meanwhile, I'll be over in the corner trying to devise a ritual to appease the hockey gods before they decide to poke someone else.

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

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.

#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
