#2556876 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by Jedi on 15 December 2014 - 01:02 PM

On December 4th, TSN confirmed that no coaching changes were imminent. Eakins was fired on the 15th...

Guess the definition of "imminent" for MacTavish is 11 days...

Tears for Fears

Attained their vengeance many times over.


#2555141 Name That Band

The slayer of Goliath meets the name of an old pioneer knife.


David Bowie. You should expect one of LGW' Texans to get that one...

Fruit with extremely good vision.

Linkin Park. Ugh...

Horrifically (but intentionally) misspelled name of a high school gym teacher.

Holy crap... Has his nameplate for the Jack Adams even come back from the engravers yet?


#2548785 What Are You Playing?

Posted by Jedi on 14 November 2014 - 12:13 AM

I have an awesome wife.

 

She knew I was pretty pissed and probably a little mopey since my PS4 is off for repairs (shipped back home today, will know Saturday if it works or not when it arrives).  So she did a LOT of searching and scrolling online, and found what she was getting me for Christmas.  And then, when she picked it up, she went ahead and gave it to me.

 

To match my Glacier White BrickstationPlaystation 4, she got me the Cirrus White Xbox One bundle with Sunset Overdrive!

 

So, I've been playing S.O. for the past couple of days.  It's an... interesting game.  Not necessarily my style, but it is fun to play.  Fully expect it to take a back seat to Destiny when/if my PS4 ever gets up and running again, but I'll get around to it again, for sure.

Didn't the wings put an amway patch on their jerseys?

 

On their practice jerseys.

#2545666 So next gen consoles? Who is making the jump

Posted by Jedi on 31 October 2014 - 06:19 AM

OK, that was fast. Shipped off my PS4 on Friday afternoon, one week ago today. Because I live in a small outside-the-metroplex suburb of Dallas, FedEx didn't pick it up until Monday, arriving at Sony's door on Wednesday...

It shipped back to me yesterday. Sony didn't even have my console for 24 hours. And, FedEx is now showing that it is slated for delivery today. If so, that's a turnaround of exactly one week. That's damn impressive.


#2541852 Toronto Radio: Illitch is selling everything and Babs will be Leafs GM

Posted by Jedi on 17 October 2014 - 07:38 PM

Per Ansar KHAAAAAAN!!!

Report by Toronto radio's Bob McCown that Ilitches looking to sell Wings, Tigers and Little Caesars completely false, Ken Holland said.

 
Helene St. James...

#RedWings GM Ken Holland on Ilitches selling #RedWings, #Tigers: "It's Bob McCown making stuff up."

 
And Ted Kulfan...

Ken Holland, not surprisingly, said the McCown radio report was total "b.s" regarding Ilitches selling TIgers, Red Wings and Little Caesars

#2538907 Devils Sign Tootoo

Good for Jordin. Best of luck to him against the other 14 teams in the East.


#2538905 Kindl on the block

Posted by Jedi on 07 October 2014 - 04:55 PM

Probably looking for a draft pick for Kindl. Since the trade would be to free a roster spot for XO, no sense in trying to bring another roster player back.


#2535410 So next gen consoles? Who is making the jump

In just one week, my Glacier White Destiny PS4 bundle will arrive from Amazon.

 

One week...  7 days...  168 hours... 10080 minutes... 604,800 seconds...

 

OOH, 603,795 seconds!




#2534298 Ice Bucket ALS Challenge: Bettman edition

Posted by Jedi on 14 August 2014 - 10:31 PM

Dammit Bettman. I can't keep telling people that you're a Muppet if you keep doing things like this, which make you look like an honorable and respectful human...

 

Glad to see how this whole challenge is raising awareness of ALS.




#2533966 Greatest Wings game ever

Posted by Jedi on 10 August 2014 - 10:06 AM

Pretty sure that was a Blues team with Gretzky as well.


Gretzky turned the puck over to Yzerman, who then scored the game/series winner.

Another vote for March 27th of 97 here. The game that really solidified this team I to a group of guys who believed they could win the cup that year.
