#2526922 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 29 June 2014 - 01:08 PM

Clearly some people don't want the info I have. So in the future I won't share it

I don't think it's that people don't want it, it's just that you knowing your source is legit only benefits you--the rest of us don't know this cat from Adam, and this is the internet. I'd expect the same reaction if it were me, or 55fan, or haroldsnepts, etc. it's fun to hear the rumors, so don't be offended if to the rest of us that's all they are.

Shea Weber better get the norris trophy or i'm gonna beat up everybody that did not vote for him. :boxing:  :boxing:  :boxing: .both keith and chara have won the norris before,it's time for shae weber to win his

I love you PredsFan, but the only way I'd like to see Shea win that award is if Ted Lindsay comes up behind him and bashes his head into the microphone.

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.
