#2661331 Another new Wings Fan is on the way!

Posted by Jedi on 22 March 2016 - 11:58 AM

A 2nd new Wings fan in my family is on the way, though this time around we'll be looking for pink Wings gear!

She's "officially" due on July 31st, though she'll actually be here a week or two before that.  Parker (my First Wings fan) is ridiculously excited to be an older brother.

#2656946 Happy 20th Anniversary, LGW!

Posted by Jedi on 02 March 2016 - 09:28 AM

I'm glad to have been a member of this board for 13 of those almost-20 years.  I have such great memories of times spent and discussions had on these forums, and have been lucky enough to have made several life long friendships with other members.
Thanks to Matt for creating the forums and putting in so much hard work to keep it running.  Thanks to my fellow Mods for all their hard work (especially since life has tended to drag me away from here recently).  And finally, thanks to all the members of the forums!  You the real MVP(s)!
Happy (almost) 20th, LGW!

Just think, one more year and this site can buy us all a beer! :drunk:

#2644516 Disney Buys Star Wars, 3 New Films Coming

Posted by Jedi on 28 December 2015 - 01:23 PM

Also chewbacca didn't seem to age. Wonder what his secret is. 


Wookies have a lifespan of several hundred years.  While the 30 year span from ROTJ to TFA for humans might be significant, in the lifespan of a Wookie, 30 years could be more like 4-5 years for us, possibly even less.


So his secret is good genes.  Good Wookie genes.

#2643269 Disney Buys Star Wars, 3 New Films Coming

Posted by Jedi on 18 December 2015 - 08:11 AM

saw it at 7:30


walked out of the theater in a daze


oh man, it is SO. FREAKING. GOOD.


I need like 3 years to process everything.


The only thing I could say after seeing it last night was "WOW".


It's too new and too shiny right now for me to put in any kind of definitive ranking, but it's easily better than all of the prequels.


GO SEE THIS MOVIE.  You won't be disappointed.  The Force is strong with this one.

#2639939 91-92 jerseys

Posted by Jedi on 28 November 2015 - 11:54 AM

I will add my recommendation for sportsk as well. I've bought anywhere from 8-10 jerseys from there, and have been absolutely nothing but satisfied each time. They ship fast, have the best prices, and have unparalleled customer service. The letters and numbers on their Wings jerseys are absolutely the real deal (unlike Hockeytown Authentics or Shop.NHL.com, which have smaller letters and numbers that just don't look right), and they are all tackle-twill sewn on.

They are my first (and often, only) place I go to when I'm in the market for a new jersey.

Where was that toughness when you were in Detroit, Ian?!

#2628468 Raffi Torres at it again.

Posted by Jedi on 05 October 2015 - 04:06 PM

At first, I thought the report of 41 games was a typo.

Then, I remembered that this is Raffi Torres we're talking about...

#2622994 Kane Off NHL 16 Cover

Posted by Jedi on 12 August 2015 - 09:13 PM

Stevie was on it in the mid-90's, not sure when, but it was pre-Cup.

Stevie was (sorta) on the cover of NHL 96.


#2618453 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by Jedi on 01 July 2015 - 05:22 PM

In typical LGWs fashion, the thread about the Richards signing has more pages than the Mike Green one. 

Fewer years = Less time to complain. Gotta get the shots in while they can, and make em count more than 3 years worth of complaints...

#2615458 LGW Moderator Problems

Posted by Jedi on 20 June 2015 - 10:26 AM

We've confirmed that the recent influx of spammers are actual people, not spambots or anything like that. As such, there may not be much we can do to prevent the occasional attack.

We have tools that make cleaning up these attacks extremely easy (one click on their profile and they're banned, content removed and ip-blocked). But unfortunately we can't use these tools until the spam posts are brought to our attention. That's where we need members to use the "report post" tool.

When a post is reported, the system sends an email to each of the boards moderators and Admin. That way we get notified, even if we're not on the boards.

One thing though, most of these spammers tend to attack the boards in the very late/early hours, when most people are asleep. LGW mods are just like everyone else, we have jobs and responsibilities that make it hard to be online at the time these spammers hit. So please understand that we will take care of the attacker as soon as we can, but it may be several hours before a mod can be online.

#2613390 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

#2612464 State your unpopular opinion *Mod Warning Post #'s 200 & 219*

We can either fight about our differences, or we can embrace them and happily eat Starburst together.  
Gotta love diversity.

I'll take the reds and yellows, you take the pinks and oranges. Problem solved.

Music that is newer than mid-to-late 90s is just not that good (by and large, of course certain notable exceptions exist).

#2602990 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by Jedi on 28 April 2015 - 09:56 PM

One of the worst things to come out of this, is that you will probably never see Kronwall make his signature hits again.  If the NHL is willing to suspend him, when he has never been suspended before, then he will have no incentive to make that kind of hit again.  Any hit from here on out will have this suspension looming over it.


RIP "You Got Kronwall'd".  You had a pretty good run.
