Money On The Board!

11 April 2015 - 10:13 PM

Yes, it's our favorite time of year, folks!  For those of you who know how this works, pledge early and often.  For those of you who don't, those who want to participate figure out some kind of financial pledge having to do with the Wings playoff performance.  Some pledge a buck a goal for certain players, some pledge per win, per series, per shutout, or any combination.  Get creative!  Don't get too complicated though, because it gets hard to keep of.  Post your pledge here so we can shamelessly "plus" your post.  When it's not possible to add any more to the kitty, everyone Paypals me their total and I make a donation.


Now, all but one year we have donated to Children's Hospital.  I'm fine if everyone wants to keep it that way, but I'd like to suggest we send this season's donation to a local charity started by a 12-year-old when he was 9.  He spends every single Saturday feeding the homeless in Detroit.  I've been following him on Facebook for quite a while now and he's starting to get a lot of press.  All signs point to this being a legit charity.  Check out the Eimers Foundation here and here.  When you pledge, vote for either Children's Hospital or the Eimers Foundation; both are worthy recipients, so I certainly won't be offended either way.

Contest For Two Nosebleed Tickets for Thursday's Game

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.
