#2134482 The Wings flipped the "switch"

Posted by vladdy16 on 22 March 2011 - 10:40 AM

The Wings often "flip the switch" in a game. Although they played well the entire third rather than just for 5 minutes or so, the question is: Is the switch going to stay in the "ON" position or were they just temporarily embarrassed last night? Could go either way.

They finally figured out how much coke Sheen had; it was enough to kill two and a half men.

Where's a sniper when you need one?

Dunno if you're being facetious with your last line, but Gregory is Colin's son...

That was indeed complete and utter sarcasm on harold's part.

#2122718 2/26 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Sabres 2 (SO)

Posted by vladdy16 on 26 February 2011 - 08:09 PM

I'm not a big fan of losing, but as long as the team comes to play and gives good effort, I can handle it. I lose my freakin' mind when they go through these spurts of Keystone Cop hockey and look like they've never hit the ice together before. I'd like to be waiting in the tunnel and smack them all upside the head as they come out.

I say good luck and God speed, but he's got his work cut out for him. Florida being a transient, snow bird destination is going to attract other teams' fans; not to mention the Yzerman factor. This on top of the non-traditional market hole they need to dig themselves out of.

Can someone ask Jedi to flip that switch on his router again, please?

#2118607 Winter Classic to Detroit?!

Fact of the matter is, people bitching about the Wings getting 2 probably don't plan on attending or are like 85 years old. Just another reason to tailgate and drink it up. Lighten up people. Thanks, that is all.Posted Image

Not all. I'm nowhere near 85 and would crawl over ground glass to attend. I just don't think it's right for anyone to get two bites of the apple before others have had a chance.

#2118432 Octopus Twirling in Tampa Bay?

Posted by vladdy16 on 18 February 2011 - 01:54 PM

Uh oh - I remember when i asked about where to find an octopus when I attended a game earlier this year....and the lgw police informed me that this tradition is ONLY reserved for playoffs and very rare big games on occassion. I mean, I didnt know - I had no idea. Luckily I was informed. These poor fans in Tampa unfortunately don't have the benefit of being a member of such a superior internet fan base that no one was there to tell them the proper way of being a Red Wings fan. Can we get a facial picture of the fans who threw the octopi and perhaps use google picasa technology to find out where they live so that we can better inform them?

While it is indeed true that throwing octopi is reserved for "special occasions," I believe this particular fan was just giving Stevie Y his chance to see an octopi this year. :)

Mario said

“If the events relating to Friday night reflect the state of the league, I need to re-think whether I want to be a part of it.”

This is going to be Mario's epitaph, I swear. Someone should just put this on the back of his jersey and be done with it. I'm so freakin' tired of hearing him ***** and moan about the league and threatening to take his toys and go home if it's not run just the way he likes it.
Good luck and Godspeed to you then, Mario.

LMAO - quote from post-game: "The Red Wings needed another injury like the world needs another Big Mama's House movie."

I sent my Wish Application in for the game on the 13th against Boston - it says "LetsgoWings.com supports Children's Hospital." If you're at the game, look for it on the Jumbotron between the 1st and 2nd.

#2102394 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by vladdy16 on 21 January 2011 - 11:14 PM

This thread is about Nabokov - please keep it to that particular subject. No beers, no goalie wars, and if you "report" someone has made a claim, please cite a source.
I'd hate to have to pull this thread, but I will if I have to delete another 3 pages of irrelevant posts.

NO, NABBY NO!!! Detroit is where good goalies come to die.

#2099485 Crosby on strike

Posted by vladdy16 on 18 January 2011 - 05:28 PM

People wouldn't be bitching about the bitching if the people originally bitching actually did research before bitching.

Stop bitching about the bitching about the bitching. Now that I'm bitching someone else is going to start bitching about my bitching.

The bitching needs to stop.

Do you need a ***** slap?
