#2390185 Should I take an octopus to Dallas?

Posted by rrasco on 26 April 2013 - 12:25 PM


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.

#2389284 The Race for Eight: Blue Jackets, Stars, Wings

Posted by rrasco on 24 April 2013 - 11:58 PM

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.

#2389283 4/24 GDT: Kings 1 @ Red Wings 3

Posted by rrasco on 24 April 2013 - 11:57 PM

Sooooo....Wings need a win against Trashville and for Dallas to pull it out in regulation tomorrow.  That will allow the Wings to clinch tomorrow and I can take a breather at the game on Saturday.


Good win tonight.  If my brother didn't ruin it for me before I finished watching the recording it would have been more exciting but at this point I'm just glad they're figuring out how to win.


Tonight is over and tomorrow is beginning.  Need another 2 points and a ROW.

#2385625 Six outdoor games in 2014 for NHL

Posted by rrasco on 17 April 2013 - 12:28 PM

Perhaps you wish to take this to PM's? In this context, fairly novel should be taken to mean uncommon, rare etc... which would certainly apply, since you know, there are 1,230 total games in a regular hockey season, and we are talking about 6 games. FYI, I might have also used 'fairly unique', which also wouldn't make sense from a strict dictionary perspective, but to anyone not being purposefully obnoxious... would likely be taken to mean uncommon, rare, etc.


So that being said, since you stated you do in fact understand what I am trying to say, I am surprised you think that 6 games out of 1230 would not be considered uncommon or rare...?


I'm confused...are we talking about you or somebody else?


What's less common, 1 out of 1230 or 6 out of 1230?

Great, I'll be at the Dallas game....and a nervous f****** wreck.  I'm liable to hurt someone if it comes down to that and the boys don't  show up.  I've been fearing that scenario all year.

#2382391 NHL comes back stronger than ever

Posted by rrasco on 09 April 2013 - 09:28 AM

I just cannot stomach droping $400 on two tickets in prime seating (plus travel time, hotel, gas, food, etc) to see the Winter Classic.  The lockout left a very bad taste in my mouth.  I know that may people will be buying the tickets and it will sell out. but thats not the point.  I have been to the first outdoor college hockey Cold War and then the second Cold War at Michigan last year.  I enjoyed both of those games, and I am all about supporting college hockey because they didn't crap on their fanbase.  The NHL and NHLPA crapped all over the fanbase over the summer with rhetoric and finger pointing.  Both sides played the PR card hard, and as a result, turned me off as a fan.  I love hockey.  I watch hockey on TV.  I won't invest a dime in the NHL until I am over this bad taste in my mouth.  It may take a year or two, but I will be there.


I will take the $500+ that I save and have a big party at my place with friends in front of my 52 inch HDTV and enjoy the game just as much.


Even though I knew there was going to be a lockout, I bought WC tickets.  They went on sale in August last year, before the lockout was official, and there was no way I was going to chance missing it.  When I had the option after the game was officially canceled, I retained my tickets, because for me, this is a once in a life time opportunity.  People in Michigan have substantially more opportunities to attend Wings' games than I do, so when I get the chance and the means to go...I go.  I've been to 8-9 Wings' games and only one was at the Joe, so this is a big deal for me.  I'm just hoping they release the Winter Festival schedule so I can plan my trip already.

Wait, there is a day for BJs?  And I get a f****** steak?  Why didn't anyone tell me?

#2380154 Nyquist, Tatar, dekeyser

Posted by rrasco on 04 April 2013 - 11:03 AM

Like when he gave Brunner a beauty of a pass last game and helped him snap a 16 game goal drought.  I certainly like that pair.


That's the one I was referring to.  The best part was Brunner skating to Nyquist, that smile and hug said it all "Thank you, you crafty son of a *****."

Nyquist had some great hustle/ethic on that goal he made happen on Monday.

Haha, I will do my best.  How much I remember will depend on how much I tip back, but I've been a lot better about that lately.
