Music (I teach high school choir, music theory, music history, and music technology plus play bass in several bands as well as freelance on keys); Reading sci-fi, fantasy, and military fiction; plus a wide variety of other stuff.
Is Smith not paired with Quincey? I think that he was much better when not paired with Kylef****** Q (think of the Dennis Leary NyQuil routine) last season. Just a bad player combo with toxic chemistry imho.
Smith has been strong from what I've seen in the 2nd.
The "spicy" comment seems to have been missed by most. Baron Harkkonen is displeased.
I'm a sci-fi geek in general, not a fanboy of one particular franchise. (Though I did consider writing a musical combining the Marcellus Shale gas drilling industry that has cropped up in my area with Battlestar Galactica for "Frack! The Musical")
Our faculty just did it, I'm the one towards the end of the line with the Dream Theater shirt. Over $350 so far, staff can donate until Friday. Not as good as the administration with the front bucket loader but still for a good cause. The video (and the administration's) is on the school web page, www.masd.info
You've hit a lot of the salient points that beeded hitting. I actually think this streak is more impressive than the Bruins' streak because they never had to contend with the salary cap the Wings do. Maintaining their level of success from the pre salary cap era to now is impressive, and to sustain it is moreso, imho.
Today's NHL has been striving for parity amongst teams for years, and the case could be made that, as a result, it has, in some ways, become a parody of itself. Ken Holland has done a good job steering the Wings through the transition period, despite everything.
I wouldn't be surprised if the cost of a trade is higher for the the Wings with any given team than anyone else because so many folks seem to want to see the Wings fail, and no GM wants to be blamed for being the guy that helped the Wings climb back on top.
The injuries the Wings have had the last few years were ridiculous, and at this point, it almost feels like probability is swinging back towards a healthy Wings squad this year.
Kr and Dabura have both made great points, and the negativity is getting old. Am I happy about the Cleary signing? No, but I can respect why Ken did it (MUCH better than how the Sharks crapped on Thornton and Marleau, and I'm no fan of either, but that was bush league). I am hoping Cleary plays well in the games he's in (that ice bucket video was top notch). The prospect pool is the best I've seen since I started watching the Wings back in 1983 as a 12 year old. The future is bright, imho, and the team is going to hit an upswing soon. Let's enjoy the ride.
My principal liked the idea, but after his predecessor challenged him the next day, he went way above and beyond, roping in several other administrators to do it in a BIG way and donate $1,000. Video is on the school homepage, www.masd.info
I, and any other brave faculty members, will be doing it Tuesday during lunch of our inservice.
