#2612881 The return of The Mule?

I don't know why you respond to people (including me) as if you know them personally. I have no idea if your a 13 year old kid with nothing to do, or a 65 year old retired lady waiting for my response so you can argue it immediately. I will end this dialogue for those reasons. I can also tell you probably have never played the game of hockey (correct me if I'm wrong) at any notable level, so was probably always a waste of time
 
Thanks


Sooo...in your mind, only people who "play(ed) the game of hockey at a notable level" are to be taken seriously if they disagree with you or have their opinions valued? Give me a break.

This entire playoff season has been a nightmare. Literally hot 4 day old barf in a plastic wastebasket.

@reporterchris: The #TBLightning are dealing with a flu bug. Says Jon Cooper: "This extra day of rest is going to be good for us."

Does he ever stop whining or making excuses? f*** that guy.


#2610457 Z and Emma expecting

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 26 May 2015 - 10:39 PM

I was just wondering, if it's twins, are they going to be known as Euro twins?


But if they're born in the US, then they'll be Ameuro Twins

I would normally agree with you. But from past interactions with Playmaker, I wouldn't be so sure. He did accusing Pavel of playing for "Team Putin" during the Olympics...


Don't be fooled. Playmaker can be wicked sarcastic. I *highly* doubt he truly believes that Swedish anchor babies are a pressing political issue :lol:

Besides, Pav *does* tow the company line when it comes to Russia...


#2609733 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 22 May 2015 - 02:40 PM

 
 
At least as much as lawyers do. 
 
Besides, helping you dingbats see the light is almost a full time job. 
 
Edit:  You should read the foreword by Erich Fromm in the reissued addition of "1984".  It argues that modern capitalist societies ARE the Matrix.  You ARE being lulled into a passive state of "happiness".  Which equates to nothing more than satiation.  But you didn't choose it.  And it wasn't forced on you.  It's just an unintentional, uncaring, affect of affluence. 


Just chiming in to say that Fromm's foreward alone is worth the price of admission to reread the reissue. 1984 was never one of my favorites, but it is fascinating to revisit it every 10 years or so in light of how society continues to (d?)evolve.

As for Slava, I'm now picturing him as a villain on horseback in some Eisenstein film...

Well, I guess I'm busted. Pav is moving in with me.

We have an arrangement wherein he does all the chores I don't like and I do absolutely nothing for him in return. I think it's a pretty sweet deal on his end.

Ugh! I want the new Rangers to win not the old Rangers! This year's playoffs have really burst my bubble all over the place.

Am I wrong in thinking that Tampa is Not. That. Good? Yet they keep winning? Is there a signed contract with satan hidden somewhere?


#2608467 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

I really don't want to lose Blashill for 4 years of Babcock. Will be interesting to see how this all pans out..,


#2607958 What's our draft position this year? And best defensemen available

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 15 May 2015 - 11:26 AM

My god what's so hard to understand about fans wanting local heroes ?


What's hard to understand is that you're stating that "fans" want this with no proof of that even being the case. You, frankgrimes, may want this, but that doesn't mean that everyone or even a minute cross section of the fans of any given team want this. I would agree with others above that for anyone who is not xenophobic, icing the *best possible team* regardless of country of origin is the most important thing. Also, as previously pointed out, the Wings *have* multiple players from the area on the team. Now, I was born and raised in MI and this means nothing more to me than a Pierre McGuire interesting trivia tidbit. Nothing. Are they good players who complement the team? Great. If it does mean something to someone else, great. You got it.

TL;DR this isn't a thing. Stop trying to convince us that it is a thing, and that we all want it.
