is there anywhere to watch all of this bulls*** go down?

My nightmares.

#2335301 Swiss League Topscorer Damien Brunner

Can someone explain to me why the one guy on the team with the white jersey's is wearing a flaming yellow helmet? lol

He holds the well-respected position of being the team's "Flamer," a position only recognized in Swiss hockey that is similar to that of "distracter" in beer pong. Although the Flamer is not allowed to show his breasts. True story.

#2334824 Sheahan arrested for "superdrunk" driving

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 27 November 2012 - 05:36 PM

The rest isn't good, but at least he had an excuse for being a Tellytubby.

Agreed. I had totally forgotten this all happened around Halloween. I was trying REALLY hard to wrap my brain around that one lol.

Had a long response typed up that was probably entirely too personal. Moral of the story for me is that yes, I get being young and dumb--I once firmly fell into that category and made some monumentally bad decisions--BUT sanctimonious or not, there is a lot at stake when someone makes the decision to drink and drive. The fact that this is the kid's second go round with this situation is unfortunate. Some people don't get to screw up a second time.

#2333055 Winter Classic Ticket Holders, What are you going to do?

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 30 October 2012 - 04:57 PM

So if the Winter Classic gets cancelled what are you going to do?

Realistically? Ugly cry. Picture the raging kid from the internet video where he tries to shove the remote control up his ass, only with less penetration. That'll be me. Two middle fingers to this lockout, boys and girls.

NHLPA has requested to meet this week, but refuse to meet on NHL terms.

NHL refuses to meet without precondition.

Our season is going up in smoke as the days go on.

"@DarrenDreger: NHL remains firm, willing to negotiate with the PA by only working off NHL offer tabled last Tues. NHL wants next meeting to be an end pt."

News flash: this isn't negotiating! Both sides shoot negotiation in the face before they even get in a room together. Nothing is going to get done this way. They need to stop sniping at each other through the media and put on their f$&@ing big boy pants and sit down at a table together for more than 90 minutes. Bring in a mod if you have to, but stop tattling on the other guy for being the meanie.

#2331843 Who was the better Wing/Player? Yzerman or Lidstrom

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 16 October 2012 - 09:33 PM

I think you are asking two unique question here, with different answers.

Who was the better Wing? Yzerman
Who was the better player? Lidstrom

I totally agree with this. On pure hockey ability and skill, Lidstrom comes out on top. But the best Wing? Yzerman showed up for this team in any manner that they needed him consistently and reliably for over twenty years. Lidstrom was a great leader, but Stevie was The Captain. Love them both, and am honored that I got to grow up watching them play for my team.

I wish they would just drop the all-star break. It's as worthless as teats on a boar hog.

LOL around here (aka in our house) we say as useless as t*ts on a shovel. Which, I agree, is what the all star break is if we can salvage a complete season without it.

Wow...very awesome of the team to allow the men's families to have their day.

The Saginaw Spirit are also playing right now as is U of M for those that are interested.

#2331234 Our friend @HockeyyInsiderr lists anti-lockout teams...

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 10 October 2012 - 06:11 PM

The NHL owns the Coyotes, so I think that actually makes it 6 owners since Bettman likely controls that vote.

That s*** is so shady.

#2330962 Zetterberg to play in Switzerland

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 08 October 2012 - 02:32 PM

Wasn't he just saying how he wanted to hang around and see things through or did I just make that up? All I know is that this lockout is seriously pissing me off, far more than the other two I've experienced. I'm so over it.

#2330497 ESPN-KHL Deal in the Works?

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 02 October 2012 - 03:07 PM

Hockey? On ESPN? Now that's a blast from the past!

I actually used to hate when the games were aired on ESPN because I couldn't get my Ken and Mickey fix...wasn't it on UPN50 back then? God I'm getting old!

The effects that a lockout could have on Detroit's local economy: http://www.mlive.com...gs - MLive.com)

After hitting rock-bottom throughout the most recent recession and auto crisis, it would really be a shame to watch the local businesses that are helping to rebuild and revitalize Detroit suffer. I wonder how other cities will fare.

I was just coming here to post this. Does anyone remember/have a cite for how much revenue the city of Detroit lost during the last lockout? I remember it was bad. I love the city so much, and it breaks my heart to think of all the "little people" that are affected by the lockout.
