It's funny. Reading the game day thread on the Calgary boards, you wouldn't even know Kostopolous hit anyone let alone broke someone's jaw. They literally have said nothing about it.
the thing is flames fans are delusional when it comes to their team. before the season started flames fans actually thought they had a good team, a playoff team. throughout this season, you would read articles in the paper that asked "what's wrong with the flames?" and "when are things going to turn around?", etc. ever since 2004, flames fans have had an unwarranted sense of entitlement (something other fan bases accuse us of, only in our case we have a reason for feeling this way), as if their team is supposed to be a contender every single year. when the flames play bad, their fans wonder why.
but the flames playing style has been the same since 2004. clutch, grab, hit, slash, fight, dump it in, get a rebound goal, etc. this type of hockey isn't going to get you the cup in today's nhl. but this is all that at least half of their fans know because they've only been 'fans' since 2004. this is why most of them defend hits like the one tonight. they think it's just good, old tough western-alberta hockey. which is one of the reasons why i hate the flames. in fact, i think for most of us, our 'hatred' of other teams is based mainly on the way their fans think and act.
either way, the flames will be golfing in april, and that feels good.
Andrew Krystal on the FAN590 today was commenting on the Edmonton Cheerleaders. I'm not the this type of guy, but I found what he said funny! He mentioned the Edmonton cheerleaders were a little over weight and said, "Tell these women they have 1% milk now", and added, "These are the kind of girls if you're dating them and someone sees you with them in your car, you make up an excuse saying, 'No she's not my girl friend, she's dating my buddy and needed a ride to the airport'".
exactly. no team has ever won 82 games in a season.
when the wings are playing a good game and are winning we ask ourselves: "how do these guys ever lose a game?" well... this is how it happens. even if they win 60 games this year they will still lose 22. this game was one of those 22.
Yes, when a baby is born it is 0 years old. Meaning that it has not lived a full year yet. A baby that is born between March 1st, 2011 and February 29th, 2012 will live 365 days and still be 0 years old in that it has not yet reached its first birthday.
But you are also an idiot. The calendar we use is based on when the birth of Jesus is believed to have happened. There are years that happened before it, and years that have occurred since. As you clearly are not very intelligent, I will enlighten you. After 1 B.C. came 1 A.D., there was no "Year 0" which fell in between. The first decade A.D was 1 A.D to 10 A.D.
the fact that you call me an idiot without knowing me at all says a lot about you.
