#2623647 Z and Emma expecting

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 20 August 2015 - 10:48 PM

This reminds me of something funny I read:
If I have a daughter I'm going to name her lizard, and then she'll get the nickname Liz. And everyone will ask her "oh is that short for Elizabeth?" And she'll have to say "no my name is lizard."

Thats hilarious.

I had this great idea (that I was never serious about, but I thought it was hilarious) when I was younger that I was going to teach my first kid to read, but with letters upside down and sideways, so everyone would think he was dyslexic.
I don't know why I found it funny, now that I think about it, its in the category of monstrously cruel, so its kind of funny, I guess.

Idk.
Also.
For everyone who was concerned with me about the lack of seeds in watermelon taffy, I have found a popsicle that has them and they taste very similar. Watermelon bomb pops.
Its not as convenient, because to this point I've only found this delicious frozen treat from the local ice cream truck. But still.
Tasty nonetheless.

If Love gets teased, he's only a year younger than Douglas Kronwall.  He can just have his bigger buddy Kronwall the bullies against their lockers.

#2622306 Who is better Nyquist or Tatar?

Posted by number9 on 05 August 2015 - 11:05 AM

Realgud points everyone. I've been swayed and forced to change my vote again!

 

The major difference between Nyquist and Tatar is that Nyquist is a goose, and Tatar is a Mexican water bug.

 

Now the thing about geese is that some can lay golden eggs, like Gus did during the 13-14 season. However, to lay golden eggs, geese have to be loose. Hence the phrase "loosey goosey". Because geese are not always loose, a goose like Nyquist will be streakier from time to time.

 

Being a Mexican water bug, Tatar is obviously more lively and quick with the puck. But the main advantage of being a Mexican water bug is that it is a made-up insect that only exists inside the mind of Mickey Redmond. So basically the sky is the limit on Tatar's potential and what he will develop into. Don't ask me why Mickey's made-up bug is Mexican.

 

I know it's boring nerdy science stuff i got from a spread sheet, but the facts are there. Each has their strengths and weaknesses.

Only girls use wifi... back when hockey didn't suck we used hi-fi

Real hockey was played on icebergs by Vikings with axe blades strapped to their feet who just skated around trying to kill each other with the axe handles. Real radio was a wandering minstrel who sang stirring anthems and ribald ballads for a leg of roast mutton.

#2620783 Lovable Dan Cleary update thread

Posted by roboturner on 17 July 2015 - 03:02 PM

My sister passed away about 3 weeks ago from cancer.

 

A couple of seasons ago she had a chance to go to a Wings game.

 

My dad had been in contact with the Wings people and they were trying to work out who she might want to meet if she got the chance. It was up to me to ask her who she wanted to meet. Of course, we were trying to surprise her so I didn't want to just come out and say "Hey you're probably going to get to meet one of the players, who do you want to meet?"

 

So i would ask, "Hey Care, if you got to meet anybody on the wings who would you want to meet?"

 

"DAN CLEARY!" she'd exclaim.

 

So a couple of days later I would ask again. "DAN CLEARY!!" was the answer I got again.

 

She knew they were going to be going to the game when she went down to Ann Arbor, so I tried again, "No..Seriously....If you really got to meet one of the current Wings players when you go to the game, who would it be?"  I could not have given her a bigger hint without flat out just telling her!

 

"DAN CLEARY!"

 

So she and my dad and uncle went to the game and had a good time. Then the game was over. As they are trying to 'leave' the building, my uncle is leading the way with directions on where to go with my dad and sister following him. She still has no idea.

 

They end up in an area where she figures they aren't supposed to be. "Are we allowed down this way?"

 

Finally they end up standing against a wall with a bunch of other people with a Wings/arena employee telling them to just wait where they are.

 

"Are we meeting players?!" She had finally figured it out.

 

While they were waiting she felt she had accidentally bumped into someone behind her. She turned to say she was sorry to them. But nothing came out of her mouth. It was Nicklas Lidstrom that she had bumped into!! (This was during his last season when he wasn't playing due to his ankle) He saw she was trying to apologize and told her it was no big deal. Other players like Pavel and Zetterberg had walked through the hallway where they were waiting.

 

Finally Dan Cleary came out and asked "Are you Carrie?"

 

I don't remember much of what else happened (I wasn't there, just heard the stories afterward), but he was super nice to her, took a couple of pictures, and signed some things.

The jersey says

"To: Carrie    Best Wishes

 Your friend, Dan Clear 11"

 

He also had a signed bobble head sent to our house a couple of weeks later.

 

I always teased her about wanting to meet Cleary over anybody else, but she really enjoyed the whole experience
