#2620783 Lovable Dan Cleary update thread

Posted by roboturner on 17 July 2015 - 03:02 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

Some of you live in the most bipolar nightmarish dreamscapes imaginable. 

 

Imagine a world where Nyquist actually gets to arbitration, we walk away and sign Chris Stewart...  then the nightmare passes and then you turn your head to the other side of the pillow and we're in the fluffy candy cloud-filled world where we can trade Smith, Kindl, and Quincey for picks and land Franson.  

 

Never wake me up.




#2619246 Babcock's already losing it?

Posted by rick zombo on 06 July 2015 - 02:27 PM

He's coaching. What does anyone expect? Are we going to start a new thread everytime Babcock says something like this to the media?

 

It sort of make it look like we're bitter he left when we should be glad he left and embracing the new program.

Center this... Points at random inanimate objects

I've got your random inanimate object right here.
Grabs groin.
Realizes I just said I can't get it, up.
Makes Boston/philly sad.

I think were done here.
If we need to pay Nyquist more than we have left in capspace, I wonder if Quincey gets moved real quick.

I went camping about a month ago, and the people next to us were boring and criticized my family for our uncontrollably high buttcracks.
Kidding.
Ha.


I HATE any alt rock band.
Nickleback, three days grace, shine down,and any other band where the singer feels the need to sing with air from the depths of their anus.

I also HATE country music(for the most part) new country is just racist pop music, and old country angers me.
Johnny cash is not country.

Why is Glendenning going off.
Makes a clean hit, then gets roughed up without retaliating, and he's getting a penalty?


He's...too sexy for the ice too sexy for the ice so sexy it's

Nice

#2588834 In the midst of one of the worst slumps in recent memory...where will

Posted by DRW Dominance on 04 April 2015 - 07:52 AM

We've been saying this about the "next" game for the past 2 weeks lol

ya really....i'm sick of saying or thinking this.  we played well against boston but couldn't lock it down.  regardless of the reason. i have no idea what to expect any more.  they'll probably beat minny, wash, mtl, lose both to carolina.
