#2550792 CBJ's Jack Johnson files for bankruptcy

Posted by Mckinley25 on 21 November 2014 - 02:44 PM

I got my master's degree at Georgetown, which is why I live in DC now.  But to be honest, I probably had waaaaaaaaay more fun in Mt. Pleasant.  Nobody drinks like they drink in cold weather climates. 

Unfortunately I didn't drink much during college because the alcohol I was exposed to tasted so bad I ignorantly assumed it all did, (a shame too with Founders right in my neighborhood!!).

It's was those crazy Blue Jacket fans in Columbus and Arrogant Bastard drinkers in California that got me hooked on beer for a while. Now I live in the Houghton area and don't drink at all since we had our first child this year. When things settle down I'll hopefully have time to indulge once in a while.

Fighting is a part of the game, even if 80% of modern Wings fans don't understand that (thanks Kenny).

I think they understand it's part of the game, they just don't want it to be.
And its 'part of the game' like hooking is part of the game.

I am ok with Nesty going down to play and learn but Weiss will not play in the D and probably not play more than 2 or 3 games in GR. He is a career "I'm hurt, wheres my check" player. He will continue to make a living off watching games from the stands. Pretty sweet gig really.

I never got the impression that was Weiss' attitude. He may be fragile but from all accounts he seems to working hard.

It means they will lose lol
And thank you. I strive to be below average :D

I like it, it has a beautiful post post-modernist nouveau sensibility. Please keep doing them.

That's fine if you think of your family as the equivalent of dogs, but not everyone sees theirs that way.
Not your decision or your place to judge.

To be fair I don't believe that's remotely close to what he was saying, but it's difficult no matter what and I don't know that there's a right answer. We've been dealing with a similar situation the past few years with my grandma who had Alzheimer's and dementia. She passed a few weeks ago and while sad, it was quite a relief. I hoped that she wasn't aware enough to be in pain, but with the limited communication it's impossible to know.

She used to say all the time that if she ever got that way to kill her, but it's not that easy and in interim between the condition's onset and natural death everyone suffers, we are fragile beings and that can be hard to accept. I hope Gordie is not suffering, that's the best you can ask for.

The question was, "What has he done to make you think he's pissy".  And your answer is, "he's cocky"? 
And around and around we go.

I think the answer is cleverly (or not so) veiled in the recurring phrase "it's not the NBA or NFL...." or soccer to throw off the scent.

Would have loved seeing Loooooch unload on him.. Cocky rats sometimes need a head cleaning. But man Rask needs to be better against the habs

Are you implying that Subban is more deserving of a "head cleaning" than Lucic? I'd love to hear the rational behind that.

This is the game I'm happy to get a point out of, not Buffalo or NY.

Should they all be drinking Cristal with their pinky's in the air or something? It's a Halloween party for pete's sake. hahaha

Haha, I just mean Bud Light tastes like piss, I didn't think people drank it for pleasure, just a cheap drunk.

All that money they make and they drink Bud Light?

#2544309 Kindl on the block

Posted by Mckinley25 on 25 October 2014 - 09:24 AM

He was tied for the most 5 on 5 goals and had the most assist if I remember right....so wrong.

Most points from a defenseman on this team is not a great measuring stick. If the wings are going to be contenders the defense needs to improve (as a whole I believe) on transitioning to the offensive zone. I like Smith a lot and he may get there, he is still young.

I don't understand your point. What's wrong with trade/waive/sit 4th liners when they provide nothing offensively?

Not saying I agree with it. But when the offense is one of the worst in the league shouldn't we be adding a goal scorer or two?

Yes but not by replacing a 4th liner.
