#2553544 12/2 GDT : Panthers 4 at Red Wings 3

Posted by vladdy16 on 02 December 2014 - 11:21 PM

Just got back from the game as well.  Literally the worst experience I've had at the Joe in 30 years.  The game was bad enough for the first 55 minutes, but I'm starting to realize why other fanbases don't like us much.  The fans were absolute *****, with nary a Panthers fan in sight.  


No one, and I mean no one, came to play today except Jimmah.  Can't wait for Thursday to erase this from my memory.

#2553541 Contest For Two Nosebleed Tickets for Thursday's Game

Posted by vladdy16 on 02 December 2014 - 11:14 PM

I have two tickets to give away for Thursday against Dallas.  It's Datsyuk ornament night as well.  I'll make this short and sweet, no research for trivia - I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 300.  The person to come closest without going over gets the tickets.  They are Section 203 (B?) Row 26.  Wear hiking boots!  The number has been sent to the mods, so I can't change it.  Entries will be accepted until 10pm Wednesday night.  Please don't enter if you can't attend.  Winner can meet me before the game at the Gordie Howe entrance at a time to be determined.  I'll be the one in the Wings shirt.


Caveat:  If someone guesses the number exactly, the contest will end at that time.

  :D If you stop being so needy.

I'll be at Tuesday's and Thursday's games.  I'll wait and see how those go before I get too needy.  But I'll take the butt pats!


Love, love, love, love, LOVE having control of a game from start to finish.  Not a big fan of the constant come from behind.


And Burrows can suck it.

Big, big two points. And we have a nice streak now with 4 in a row.

Do I get credit for the win?  :lol:

#2551516 Saluting the fans

Posted by vladdy16 on 24 November 2014 - 01:03 PM

Is it the fans really or is it the media blowing it out of proportion?  Either is possible - even likely!  Throw a dart, it's the right answer.


I don't think saluting should be done other than at the last home game of the season, win or lose.

I understand some consider attendance to be a problem, but this is not a discussion we need to have in every single GDT.  Please start a separate attendance thread if you'd like to pursue the topic.

#2548764 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 November 2014 - 06:42 PM

  I think everyone on this letsgowings.com already wants to travel to Vegas to see the Wings play in 70 weather in mid-January.  

That would make an interesting poll.  You might want to start that topic.


And I really wish the NHL would stop shoving it down our throats. Fetch is never gonna happen.

The NHL will stop shoveling s*** down our throats when we stop eating it.  But we're "The Greatest Fans" in the universe.


And "fetch" is totally going to happen.  *****.

What af****** joke.

The NHL can be rumored to suck my ass.

But that's never even been discussed internally *rim shot*, let alone actually considered.


I find it hard to believe anyone is actually surprised by this "announcement."

From the "Things You Can't Unsee" file, the Bruins go as a Frozen ensemble.

Finally it all makes sense... Babcock said of his thought process in determining the lines: "I just get out the Bingo machine on the back of the bench and spin it around and throw it out". Finally some reasoning behind these lines... :lol:

I saw that.  He does have a pretty good sense of humor.  


Here's the article for anyone interested.  There's a couple of links in there I found interesting as well.

I'll take the 4-1-1 please...with a side of shutout.  Aw crap! I said it...sorry!




#2542474 10/18 GDT - Maple Leafs 0 at Red Wings 1 (OT)

Posted by vladdy16 on 19 October 2014 - 10:13 AM

Holy crap, there were a lot of Leafs fans there last night.  I usually like it when Leafs fans show up - they get the Joe rockin', but there were some trolls in my section.  I was a little overly joyful they had to make the trek home disappointed.

Leafs' defense played extremely well last night.  I'm not surprised we struggled to score.  I wasn't thrilled when they pulled the trap out of the old bag of tricks a few times, but their backchecking was nothing short of stifling.  Wings played very unevenly - moments of brilliance along with moments of WTH, but a surprisingly good 0-0 game through 3.

I wouldn't mind seeing Phaneuf choke on a Timbit sometime soon though.
