#2041245 Opening night vs. Ducks

Posted by HOCKEY MATTERS on 06 October 2010 - 04:45 PM

I will be at a Civil War reenactment at Wolcott Mill Metropark from Friday afternoon till Sunday afternoon. Pretty sure a bunch of us are going to go AWOL Friday night and slither over to Buffalo Wild Wings at 26 Mile and Van Dyke to watch the opener. :ph34r:

#2039911 10/3 Pre-season GDT: Pittsburgh Penguins at Red Wings

Posted by HOCKEY MATTERS on 03 October 2010 - 02:10 PM

love this


That game made me a J-Ho fan for life. I nearly forgot how pissed it made me when that little pus filled polyp Crosbitch repeatedly cross checking Hank, pulling his hat off (and what, gonna try and cross check him in the head......naw, not even Crosbitch would sink that low)but then YES! Another cross check. The only thing that pisses me off more is that the refs did nothing. Good on Jimmy for wiping the snot out of Syndi's little girl nose.

And you are allowed to use a washer and dryer? Not very authentic.

So which side you on?

lol, yeah, in first person, at events, wash day is a stroll through the nearest body of water. Washing clothes and a bath consists of whatever happens to get wet.

My group does Some Federal events as the 22nd Michigan, but mostly as the Confederate 8th Arkansas. I am a big on the idea of States' rights.

#2033630 Parents sue because kids suck at hockey

Posted by HOCKEY MATTERS on 16 September 2010 - 08:19 AM

It's merely to get attention. The most familiar analogy I can think of is Jack Thompson. They may be arguing the case with the worst logic ever and get beat down in court but there's always a group of idiots who will pick up on the message being sent, which was made possible by being widely reported on. It's basically a lawyer's equivalent to whoring one's self out on the strip in Vegas and scoring a rich husband or ten.

Oh, Jeez. Now you've done it. HR40 is going to show up now, feeling all entitled and jealous because you used that word on these, her boards. She is, after all, the Goddess of Whores.
(seriously. i miss her around here. and some others that are absent. come back, rabs)

OT....George Carlin got it right. 2 professional parents scheduling appointments with the daycare (which means that someone else is raising your kids...helllllo)
This is not about the kids skill or lack of it. It's about those parents with their panties in a knot because of all that precious scheduled time was wasted on a kid that may not even have wanted to be there. Maybe they didn't suck at hockey. They just think their parents suck?

I have a #13 jersey that doesn't say Datsyuk.

#2026198 Hitting and Winning

Posted by HOCKEY MATTERS on 14 August 2010 - 08:46 PM

Cause and effect between these two variables cannot be determined from this study. It is pretty obvious that there are other variables that have an effect on both hitting and winning. The first, and possibly most important, is puck possession. Teams that posses the puck tend to hit less and win more. This is, this variable is likely causing the relationship to occur between hitting and winning. There are also other factors- blowout games tend to have more fights, and there are likely more hits too (from the losing team). Also, skilled players tend to hit less; therefore an unskilled team may hit more than a skilled team.

Normally I would agree, but Dats is an exception, methinks. He'll knock an assclown down given half a chance. :rolleyes:

#1973113 OHL Player lays out opposing goalie

Posted by HOCKEY MATTERS on 04 May 2010 - 07:39 AM

I still think if a goalie wants to come out of his crease and "play" he is fair game. All rules concerning hits should apply.

#1972374 How do you post on LGW?

Posted by HOCKEY MATTERS on 03 May 2010 - 12:13 PM

I noticed that some folks (me too) seem to "get caught" posting something someone else has said 1 or 2 pages back in a thread. Just wondering how far back folks read threads before posting. This is not meant to start flames or cause dissension. It's the internet, and how serious can it really be?

#1972320 Strange Change

Posted by HOCKEY MATTERS on 03 May 2010 - 11:27 AM

I began watching the Wings in the early 70's. That's when I became a hockey fan. Even through the "Dead Wings" era, when they used to lure fans in by giving away cars. I've been through a lot with my beloved Wings.

I stopped being a fan of the NHL long ago. After last night's game I am having trouble calling myself a hockey fan. What happened last night was not hockey. The spirit of hockey is in danger of dying for fans like me that remember what it used to be. Maybe that is ok with the NHL. Maybe a newer, younger, "conditioned" fan can accept last night's outcome because they haven't been witness to the "old days", and therefore be less bothered by the amount of impact referee's are having on the outcome of games. Maybe these newer fans have come to expect referee participation in the outcome of games and are not "surprised" by it. Maybe this is how the NHL sees it. I don't think they care if they lose me as a fan. I'm ok with that.

I just hope the Red Wings stay true to form and battle through the 10 on 5 hockey, and find a way to win. When the refs play a trap that the Wings can no longer figure out, my reason for watching will be gone.

Thanks, Gary.
