#2509625 4th Annual Playoff Money On The Board!

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 April 2014 - 05:19 PM

The amount doesn't matter - every little bit helps and you'd be surprised how quickly all our donations together add up.  You'd also be surprised at how much more fun it makes the games.


Thanks so much to those of you who donate and those who support us, the Wings and Children's Hospital in spirit.

Firmly on #Lumbus bandwagon for this one as well.  





Yes, my unseen internet princess, I love your pretty face as I imagine it to look. ;)


But yeah - #Lumbus

Even if it wasn't real, the fact that I used it makes it real.




#2509554 WCQF - Series F - Blues vs. Blackhawks

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 April 2014 - 11:48 AM

If there's a "Should I drink hemlock or arsenic?" matchup, this is it.  Don't like either team, can't stand the fans of either team.  Kinda hoping for a black hole at the arena for this one.

#2509540 WCQF - Series H - San Jose versus Los Angeles

Sorry, as a former SJS season ticket holder, I am SO over their fans and the Sharks in general.



#2509538 ECQF - Series B - Tampa Bay versus Montreal

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 April 2014 - 11:06 AM

I have a huge soft spot for Montreal.  I have no loyalty to Stevie within the game of hockey now that he's in our division.

Count another one on the Montreal bandwagon.



#2509534 WCQF - Series E - Colorado vs. Minnesota

Don't care about either team really, so this is really going to boil down to I don't want to see any more of Crazy Patrick than I have to.

#2509121 4th Annual Playoff Money On The Board!

Now for the second favorite part of the season - Money on the Board.


For those who know how it works, pledge up!


For those that don't know how it works, each participant decides what they would like to pledge for the Wings run in the playoffs.  It could be 50 cents per goal, it could be 5 bucks per game won, it could be a penny for each hit; our members get very creative!  I just pledge a dollar amount per series win.  I'm boring.  You are responsible for keeping track of how much your donation is.  A lot of people keep track in their signatures.  It's a lot of fun.

Once there is no possible way to add money to the pot, everyone PayPals their donation to me and I send it on to Children's Hospital.  I then receive a very nice thank-you note, which I post here.

You can do a board search for previous Money on the Board threads to see how it all works and maybe get some pledging ideas.


Here's hoping we have TONS o' cash to send off to the kiddies this year.




#2508996 Limited tickets for 1st round 1st home game at $60/Ticket

Posted by vladdy16 on 12 April 2014 - 03:38 PM

I didn't really look at the domain, just copied the link to post.  It's probably a little different because it's a special offer, so it has a subdomain.  The Wings post specials almost every Saturday.  If something looks particularly good, I post it for those that spend less time on the internet. 

#2508617 CBC partners with Rogers in landmark NHL rights deal.

From CBC:


This breaks my heart.  I grew up with CBC and it's my go-to when Wings aren't playing.  Say what you will about the crew, I'll take CBC over NBC any day.  Plus I get to watch out-of-market games, which will no longer be the case.  WOW doesn't offer NHL Network or Center Ice.

#2505508 Iginla-Rinaldo Fight

Posted by vladdy16 on 03 April 2014 - 11:52 AM

Personally, and this may just be me, Iginla deserves whatever anyone chooses to dish out for all the crap he's pulled over the years, legal or not.  Within reason, of course.

#2504675 Blackhawks getting Wingitis

Posted by vladdy16 on 02 April 2014 - 06:14 PM

I don't see anyone making fun of the injuries at all.  "Welcome to our world" is hardly doing a happy dance.  

#2503968 3/30 GDT - Lightning 2 @ Red Wings 3

Posted by vladdy16 on 30 March 2014 - 07:17 PM

These sons of ******* keep winning every freakin' time I don't watch, so I keep not watching.  I'm forced to record the replay on FSD at midnight and watch the next day, because hockey gods know I can't record the original game or they lose as well.  I'm taking a lot more than one for team here.  


That Nyquist goal is phenomenal!

#2502801 3/29 GDT - Red Wings 4 at Maple Leafs 2

Posted by vladdy16 on 29 March 2014 - 11:47 AM

I'm working through the night and I got bored.


This was the result.



Holland and Babs in the band!



It tickles me way more than it should that we have Canadian fans.  


sorry folks, i'm going to this game tonight and detroit has never won when i've been there.


blame it on me.

I live just across the border and I know where my passport is.  I have plenty of time to hunt you down before the game.  

#2500203 3/23 GDT: Red Wings vs Wild

Posted by vladdy16 on 23 March 2014 - 09:09 PM

and again, Howard does not make the save we need. Kindl blows.

The problem is there are too many saves in every game we need Howard to make.
