Yes! I was just changing my sig today to reflect the playoffs, and I realized that I usually have one related to this. Since I go complicated, I keep track in my sig.
Please, if you are a first-time contributer, don't be frightened off by my madness. It is totally acceptable to just pledge $1 per win or whatever you like.
Once again, I'm pledging $1 for each goal scored by any active Red Wing after whom I've named a hamster, all of whom are now running in that Big Wheel in the Sky, and $5 for a game in which the other team fails to score on a goaltender for whom I've named one of the aforementioned hamsters.
The $1 will become $2 if the goal scored is the GWG, $3 if it is a series-clinching goal, and $10 if it is the Cup-clinching goal.
Rather than listing the full names of my beloved pets, I'll just list the names of those who remain with the team:
I still don't understand why he wanted to come back...
Considering what's happened (recently) to so many athletes in regards to traumatic brain injury, and the long term effects we've been exposed to - why would someone (who's admitted his career ending vulnerability to even one more hit) decide that at age 35, playing in the NHL still a good idea?
He's never going to win his first Stanley cup again, never lead the league in scoring again, and never sign another contract - given his accomplishments, and the money he's guaranteed - I'd like to know which doctor(s) supported this decision.
Because he loves playing hockey? So much so that he pursued a career in it? He's probably fairly passionate about it wouldn't you think?
