#2624459 So this is why teams hate the wings

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on Yesterday, 04:45 PM

I'm staying out of this discussion due to the fact that I get overly passionate about Sergei Fedorov at times. It's awkward for everyone.

To the larger topic, I will say there was nothing like failing miserably all those years, getting so close, and then finally winning. Those are my favorite hockey years, and I get tingly and nostalgic whenever I think about it. I forget that not every Wings fan has been around that long.

If I got punched, there's a good chance you'd be the one who did it.  We all know you like to stir the pot.

Why, I *never*!

Those aren't eyebrows, they're the tarps that normally cover her Death Rays. They're just retracted in that picture, probs because she's about to Death Ray that mother effer...TO DEATH.


#2623126 Mullets - post pics

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 13 August 2015 - 11:35 PM

I know, I rmemeber when I had one of those candy bar cell phones also

True story: when I was a young lass, I worked in a residential treatment center for adjudicated teenage sex offenders (boys). I also had a seriously out-of-date brick cell phone, which I was made fun of by one of the group members by lifting *an entire park bench* to his ear and pretending to talk into it. I thought I was going to wet my pants I was laughing so hard.

Edit: the group member did not have a mullet.

#2620917 Lovable Dan Cleary update thread

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 18 July 2015 - 01:30 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

Sorry for your loss, robo. Thanks for sharing that awesome story.

If I could like this post a thousand times, it still wouldn't be enough.


#2620426 Mitch Callahan signed 1-year - 600k

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 13 July 2015 - 09:23 PM

I don't think his chances are "slim, to none".  Blashill loves the guy.  Called him "a player you win with".  Used him on the top line in GR.  He'll get every opportunity to break in with the big club. 


Plus, his nickname was what spawned one of my favorite all time posts here and led to much lulz. You don't just waive that kind of talent and not expect a backlash...

If he can crack the big club and be a serviceable 4th liner, then he comes cheap. I like it.
