#2173175 Where to buy Octopus near HP Pavillion

Posted by Jon_G on 12 May 2011 - 03:42 PM

LEGENDARY!!! Thx for all the help in this thread. I am not at all worried about the Sharks' "fan base" or "being attacked"...BRING IT. Or even being arrested, not worried!

Just spoke to someone on the phone at Race Street, the octopi are frozen solid, wouldnt be suitable.

Can't get through to SFFC, its a busy signal...

I will keep trying though! If you can help me at all, feel free to email me derhuhn@gmail.com I will respond immediately

Race Street Fish Market

3 minutes from HP Pavillion. :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:

Been there a few times and have seen them in stock. Last time I was there I was wearing a Red Wings cap, and one of the guys behind the counter couldn't believe it and high five'd me. He had just moved from Detroit and actually pulled out his MI drivers license to prove it.

That's your best bet for being close to the rink. But like it was mentioned before, They may not sell you one...depends who's working the counter, I would imagine. All the stores down that close to the stadium have those damn "This is Sharks Territory" signs in their windows.

Best of luck, look forward to seeing a pi hit the ice.

#2173055 WCSF Game 7 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Sharks 3

Posted by paul19010 on 12 May 2011 - 12:05 PM

I have a bottle of champagne that I bought for 2009 game 7 that is still sitting in the fridge. I only bust out champagne for championships, but tonight if they win, I am opening the bottle and spraying it. I feel like we're playing with house money, this series was over, only a 1.8% chance to come back, and the wings have forced a game 7. Down 0-3 I was looking at an off season of not being proud of the red wings, first time since 2006. But now, if they lose, I can be proud of them, but if they win, they pull off one of the most epic come backs in the history of all of sports.

I am not allowing myself to think about the big picture if they win as far as winning the cup. right now I am focused on game 7, and the opportunity to do something special.

Sorry to do this, but I got to thinking about discussions past... Seemed like it might be amusing to resurrect a Zombie of an old thread given the circumstances. Hope it's worth a couple of laughs :P

#2167190 WCSF Game 4 GDT: Sharks 3 at Red Wings 4

Posted by sphere10 on 06 May 2011 - 03:17 AM

You may recall that you guys whipped our asses pretty good in Game 4 last year. If, however, the Sharks learned their lesson from last year's beatdown and look like they're going to get the sweep this time around, enjoy watching what could be the final games for some of the classiest players in the league.

Here's the link to a nice tribute to these guys from ESPN.com: http://sports.espn.g...erre&id=6487568

Whether your season ends after Game 4 or you live to fight another day, Red Wings fans have a lot to be proud of. Lace 'em up . . . drop the puck . . . and may the best team win.

I seriously wish you didnt follow me up there. As nice as you seem I wish nothing but the worst for your team. I hope for injuries, penalties and loss after loss.

Smug is Smug and sadly you dont know what it is to win. You can keep hoping for the S word but as imminent as it may be you still havent sat at the edge of your seat with your father when your team won in 2002 and said that there would never be a team as good as this EVER. Youll never stand next to your girlfriend and hear that your team won the cup for the first time in over 4 decades. You will never be laid up in a hospital and watch you team win the cup after a horrible motorcycle accident and you will never get to hope your runaway dog comes back while you watch your team win the cup in 2008 and then have him show up the next day.

You may love your team

My team won and it won A LOT.

My team changed my life, my team gave me a reason to live, my team brought a family together, and my team gave me a reason to believe,

Your team lost. Even if they win they cant do what the Red Wings have done no matter what.

Heres to the Wings and heres to the guys that gave me so many great memories.

I don't fault you for having a personal connection to your team, but this post makes you sound like a complete jerk. You are trying to claim that only the red wings could possibly inspire wonderful personal attachments and stories, but similar stories can be found across hockey and across sports in general for everyone's team. Everyone knows the Wings have won a lot. Congratulations. I'm glad that's improved the quality of your life, but that doesn't quite make you a better person than anyone else. So keep rooting for injuries, enjoy what that karma brings you in life sir.

I'll admit your old avatar was a bit odd. As for that new one I don't think that is very nice to make fun of a blind person. That's just like my opinion man.

I'll agree it's not fun to make fun of a blind man. Making fun of a member of the Bernstein's ridiculously over advertised family however, is always funny.

He is not making fun of a person, he is making fun of a lawyer, which is perfectly acceptable.

#2151713 A call to fans

Posted by RedFlag85 on 17 April 2011 - 09:30 PM

Last Friday I was listening to the local Metro Detroit Sports station, 97.1 The Ticket. The subject that dominated the airwaves was the issue of throwing Octopi on the ice. I had an idea. I was going to call 97.1 during Valenti and Foster (Highest rated show) and challenge the radio station to set up a fund. A fund to mail Gary Bettman as much Octopi as we as a fan base could afford. Mail him 20 tons of Calamari attached with a simple note saying, "Go Wings!"

Unfortunately, I was en route to work and didn't have the time to call. I got the idea from a few years back when those fans of that CBS show "Jericho" mailed tons of peanuts to CBS to force them to make a second season. It worked.

Maybe even LGW could organize an Octopi Blockade of NHL HQ.
