@THNKenCampbell: Hall of Fame inducts best American (Modano) and first-ever Czech player (Hasek) today. Well done.

#2524972 Kaylee G Future and the Red Wings

Ah...eff it. I debated about whether I would post one of my usual unfunny sarcastic comments about this, but I'm going to venture into these murky waters for the purpose of stimulating discussion.

Look, while I agree that the entire situation was blown out of proportion, I can't help but feel a little...uncomfortable... about the whole situation. Let me tell you why.

Anyone who has ventured onto Twitter or any other social media site knows the type of bulls*** dumbass people spew into the ether. Most official accounts are inundated with ignorant, sometimes downright offensive tweets containing openly racist, homophobic or whatever other disgusting tripe some turd burgler farts out that day. These tweets, maybe rightfully so, go unresponded to. But today, the issue the Red Wings official twitter decided to address was a vapid but lighthearted, inoffensive tweet that looked to be sent out by a teenage girl that disparaged no one but maybe herself. While the Wings' tweet wasn't offensive, the litany of comments **** shaming this young woman WERE. Any social media person worth his/her salt knows how the internet works, and was aware of the attention that would be brought to this girl.

Maybe *I'M* overly sensitive to this issue, because female fans are still held to a standard of "proving themselves" that male fans are not. We (those of us who swing that way, anyway) are expected to turn off our sexuality in order to be accepted as "true fans." God forbid I, as a straight woman, appreciate an attractive, fit, talented man while watching a game I love. I must not be a "real fan" ™. I must be a puck ****. Hell, I made a post about Fedorov's underpants today FFS.

TL;DR. Short version? Blown out of proportion, but I can definitely understand why someone could have a problem with the situation. Also, I know that everyone's mileage may vary--the challenges I've faced as a female hockey fan may not be every female hockey fan's experience.

Now I'm going to go back to my Laga and thinking about Fedorov's underwear. Is it October yet?

#2524899 Spezza Requests Trade

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 20 June 2014 - 05:08 PM

Its kind of crazy the amount of top six talent requesting trades out of canada, I would hope the fans weren't that crazy there, but I'd believe it.

I was in Franklin park mall about fifteen years ago,(when it was nice) wearing a fedorov jersey. I was walking with my aunt and he was in one of the department stores buying underwear, in the middle of a pretty crowded store, and no one was bothering him.
I waved at him while I was playing on the escalators and he walked up and started talking to me and offered to sign my jersey.
Granted fedorov probably welcomed the attention, but still.

Free agency's looking like it might end up being exciting this year, but then again.
I say that every year.

I think this raises some pretty important questions:

1. What type of underwear were they? Boxers? Briefs? Boxer briefs? Bikini?
2. What color?
3. Most importantly, what size?

So um, yeah. Jason Spezza. He probably wears underwear too.

I sincerely dont mean any offens when I say this.
This goes to almost every one on here.
I dig the passion for the wings and all, but, its a game.
Its supposed to bring you enjoyment, not cause irrational panic.

#2524498 Slow News Day Thread

@JasonGregor: MacT admits they went after Dekeyser last summer. Met him for dinner and had great meeting, but his licence plate had Red Wings on it.

@JasonGregor: "That was not a good sign for us," laughed MacTavish about DeKeyser's licence plate. #Oilers

Honestly, another Larionov and McCarty would make me squeal... At least more than another Bertuzzi did

Agreed. I wouldn't even care if they sucked*, just seeing those names on the back of a Wings jersey again would make me cry, laugh, get a LadyBoner and find religion.

*I would totally care if they sucked.

#2524219 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 17 June 2014 - 11:47 AM


But honestly I can live with a cheap two way contract. He could be great for the kids in GR and then ride off into the sunset to his front office job.

That being said, so help me god if he starts the season in the top six I will light a fricking turd on fire and throw it on the ice.

#2523834 2014 SCF : (2) The Big Apple vs. (3) Hollywood

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 14 June 2014 - 12:14 PM

Guys, I tried.

I just can't manage to give two rabbit farts when it's not us lifting the cup.

Best part of these playoffs for me was that neither the Pens nor the Hawks got to the big show, so there's that...

Edit: grammar *shakes head*

This is just saying hypothetically brodeur could be a candidate for the Wings but no actual rumors.

I posted it more for the reaction tweet. Brodeur is disgusting and I want no part of him on this team.
