#2260702 Somethings brewin'?

Posted by CopenhagenWing on 22 February 2012 - 02:57 PM

Living where I do and living with a BJ fan, I take issue with Rick Nash's hustle. He's constantly lackadaisically skating around unless of course there's a scoring chance and then he turns on the jets. Otherwise, it's floating in circles around the ice and an apparent allergy to backchecking.

To me, this is what comes to mind when Nash is mentioned. It certainly isn't hustle.

#2250624 Blue Jackets Fans Protest Management

I heard someplace there were around 300. Not a bad showing, surprisingly. It's hard to get anyone to actually show up to a protest, let alone to protest something as small as a sports team's management.

I wish there would have been a picture of all seven of them getting fired up.

#2250544 Bettman: 2013 ASG in Columbus

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 29 January 2012 - 09:47 AM

Yeah, but there's fun and interesting things to do in Detroit. Especially along the riverfront. My uncle (mom's brother) lives in Columbus and we go up there often to see him - there is f*** all to do there. Seriously. It's not that exciting a place. I can see people not that jazzed up about going to Columbus, Ohio.....but it's not like Detroit is Lincoln, Nebraska in comparison.

Have you spent much time in the city, or have you been confined the suburbs? I've found most of the suburban areas in Columbus (except for a few closer to the city) to be uninteresting. However, the city neighborhoods of Short North (arts district), Arena District (where the arena is), Downtown (the capital), Brewery District, and German Village are excellent. Assuming the players stay near the arena (there are a few nice hotels, and a new Hilton under construction), there will be plenty to do for them within walking distance. Also, there is a large river park that spans much of downtown.

There is a lot to do within the city of Columbus. Shoot me a PM next time you're heading to Columbus and I can give you some suggestions if you want.

I would definitely drive 3.5 hours down to Columbus for the fan festivities, and maybe even get some game tickets if they aren't incredibly expensive.

I get that the outcome of the game doesn't really matter, but it looks like a good time that's worth such a short drive.

Even if you only do the fan fest.

Red Wings fans in Southeast MI have a solid opportunity to experience both the Winter Classic and the ASG in the same year.

I think this s*** is :thumbup: :thumbup:

So what does that make Toledo?

America's anus?

Either way, I'm excited because I'll be in Ohio next year for my final year of grad school. I'll try to get tickets for sure.

#2247065 Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium Finalized

Posted by cprice12 on 19 January 2012 - 10:54 AM

2008 - Buffalo vs Pittsburgh
2009 - Chicago vs Detroit
2010 - Philadelphia vs Boston

I was off by a year.
My point is, after next year:
- Detroit: Twice
- Pittsburgh: Twice
- Philadelphia: Twice

After the next WC, the last three will have had recycled teams.
In six years of the WC, three teams have been in it twice already. That's a little ridiculous.
Granted, I understand why...ratings. It's just getting old.

#2245336 The ONE thing I can't stand about Wings games on FSD.....

Posted by rrasco on 13 January 2012 - 06:02 PM

This is a thread of people basically listing things they dislike about the FSD broadcast. I find Hogan's reports to be useless and very poorly prepared. Sorry for wasting your precious time.

You can have your neg back too for complaining about "complainers".

Exactly. An entire thread at LGW to ***** about yet something else. Surprise! I come here for breaking Wings news and some of the community. Yet all I ever read when I open a thread is ***** ***** *****.

What really does bother me is that they NEVER show the Anthems before the games.

I'd really be surprised if anyone even knows who the f*** Karen Newman is if they've only been watching games for a couple years and haven't been to one at the Joe.

Huge public/style_emoticons/default/thumbdown.gif

They do actually show them sometimes, otherwise I'd have no clue who Karen Newman is. I've only been to one game at the Joe.

That will get buried quick. :lol:

Let's see if Stafford can get away from the Bears this time and not get injured. Again.

MNF at Ford Field in Downtown Motown.

Look at thef****** plays Martz Called. Keeps calling runs up the middle right at either a Green Bay helmet or the backside of a Bears OL.

And no, this doesn't prove that the packers are "simply better". Roflgers isn't god. There is a reason we play the games, and not let computers decide s***.

And Yes, The punt play was a HERPADERP on the packies part. if only that flag hadn't happened

2-2 and heading to DET. We most likely aren't making the playoffs at this rate, but we can A. screw up someone else's season (by injuring Stafford a 3rd time in 3 years) or B. Do poorly enough to Fire Jerry Angelo.


Thank you for this rant...it so made my morning.

Yes, it does prove the Packers are simply better. Yes, Rodgers is more than likely the best QB in the game. Yes, the Bears aren't going to make the playoffs.

Can I get you a tissue?
