#2393310 Corey Perry Knee/Kick to Howard

Posted by rrasco on 01 May 2013 - 02:03 PM


Seeing the video again, we should probably just be happy that they didn't call Howie for embellishment.


I thought the contact was pretty incidental last night.  I have changed my mind since I have seen how far he dragged his leg out.  Why even lift your leg?  Just keep skating.  F*** Perry!

No matter how you put it, Perry kicked Howard in the face.  Do I think he did it on purpose?  No, but he didn't try to avoid it either.  That could have been A LOT worse.  Watch his skate drag across his shoulder and then catch him in the mask. Howard could have been severely hurt on that play.


It's the same situation when they call the big goalie interference penalties/suspensions, he may not have done it on purpose and had some defense in his way, but the onus is on the player to avoid the contact.  The goalie is helpless.


I don't think a suspension is coming or warranted.

I usually end up breaking a remote and/or window at some point.


I destroyed my entire backyard in 2009.

#2392124 2013 Playoff Beards!

Posted by rrasco on 30 April 2013 - 01:40 PM

DO IT! You were willing to go to jail to throw an octopus, I think you can suffer through a damn beard lol.


LOL!  Have you ever grown a beard?  I'd almost prefer jail.  Okay okay, I'll do it.  Here's to hoping I reach this growth again.  The best part of this picture is it was taken at the Joe!

I don't remember what I picked last year, except $10 per Kronwalled opponent, so I'll gladly roll with that again.

#2392046 WCQF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1, at Ducks 3. (Anaheim leads, 1-0)

Posted by rrasco on 30 April 2013 - 10:19 AM


i didn't anticipate nashville starting their backup.  that was really nice of trotz to let the wings make the playoffs.


They always come out of the woodwork when things are going right, just to try and knock us down.  C'mon Wings, take this garbage out!  Conks...where art thou?


3-1 Wings win.



#2391380 Should I take an octopus to Dallas?

Unfortunately it wasn't me. I didn't even see the pi after the third goal, I was too busy going ape s***. There was one at the beginning of the game too.

About to hit the road!  See you guys on the other side!  LGRW!!!!!


Maybe my favorite GDT ever.
Also, American Airlines Center is a truly crap name for an arena.

It sure is a nice arena though.

If I could even find one!  The ones I got are smaller than my hand.  Maybe I'll just throw a handful of them.

I'm not down with ragging on other teams fanbases normally, but that my lady is pure comedy gold :D


Yeah, I seriously LMAO at that one.

I think IF the worst case scenario happens and I got booked on it, I think I could beat the charge due to the precedence and acceptableness of hat trick hats.  In a court of law it would be hard to explain why that is acceptable and the octopus is not.


I also think it's completely hypocritical of the NHL to say we can't do this yet they continue to use footage of Al swinging the octopi in their 'Because it's the Cup' commercials.

The first challenge will be finding one.  Believe it or not, I've been trying to find one for months to feed to my shark with no luck.  They show up now and then, but not common.


I know all the basics of boiling, with lemon juice I've also read?  Obviously wouldn't throw it near the players or during play.  I'm not that guy.  My other challenge is I'm sitting behind the net, one section to the right, so I would have to find a throwing spot as to not hit the catch net.


I'm also of the concept that this is a playoff tradition, but being the last game of the season that our playoff chances hinge on, I think it's acceptable.  I want the boys to feel at home away from home.  We always get the LGRW chants going, so listen for us!  And I mean all of Red Wing fans there.


Probably won't go the Stars' jersey route, I will proudly be wearing my new WC jersey from start to finish.

I was thinking about taking one to get things amped up for the boys.  However, being an away arena, I'm fairly certain I'll get arrested or at least kicked out, so I would have to throw it towards the end of the game, hopefully when they are winning.  Although, I'd really love to throw it out early and give them some spark.  What do you think? How the hell do I get it in?

I don't think anyone will disagree with that.

Edmonton is just so bad I don't see them really being a problem for such a desperate team...you never know though. I'm far more concerned with Columbus, and the possibilities tomorrow. If Columbus can lose in regulation, and Detroit wins, well clinch a playoff spot.


This needs to happen so I don't have a heart attack on Saturday.
