#2249949 Game tickets and their look

Posted by Gizmo on 26 January 2012 - 09:18 AM

Take the phone number with you just in case....stubhub has a buyer protection in case there are problems at the gate. Enjoy the game!

Also, StubHub has a game day ticket location right near the Detroit Opera right on the People Mover line. If there's a problem, StubHub guarantees their tickets and they'd likely have the means to still get you into the game.

While I agree that it's probably advisable to tell your "entertainment" staff to not spray stuff directly into the faces of obnoxious fans (particularly of the visiting team), the dude's reaction was even lamer.

On top of that... that "gangsta" T-shirt is hideous.

Oh look, PETA has something to say..

One of the best bumper stickers I've seen: "MEAT IS MURDER! (Quick, eat the evidence!)"

#2130301 5 Year-old Gives up Zamboni ride for little brother undergoing chemo

Posted by Gizmo on 14 March 2011 - 05:10 PM

My older son and I went to the Western Michigan vs. Ferris State CCHA playoff hockey game last night. During an intermission, I noticed probably the smallest Zamboni rider I've seen at Lawson Arena. Talking to a co-worker, I now know how Gideon got his Zamboni ride. His five year-old brother was asked by Western if he wanted the ride, and it was a something that he's been dreaming about for some time... but at the last minute he opted to give the chance away to his younger brother who suffers from leukemia and is going though chemotherapy.

As we made our way to where the Zambonis are parked, Gideon said, "I WISH I COULD RIDE ON ONE!!!" and his little lip trembled. I explained that when he was a little older, he could do it. Then, Brody stepped in and set my heartcoaster in motion. He said, "He can go in my place."

Read the rest here (with photos)!

That doesn't make sense to me. What a player did in their career as a player shouldn't result in any limitations on their ability to assess whehter a player's actionas are "okay" or not, or suspension worthy.

Sorry if I mis-attributed the quote to Jones.... but in addition to the counterpoint made by toby91_ca, your point might have been more valid if Milbury had likewise marched back into the stands his first game back from whatever punishment was meted out to him. That was Milbury's primary point... It takes a special kind of idiot to come back from a lengthy suspension and pull an instant repeat!

#2116363 Draper the goal scorer

Posted by Gizmo on 14 February 2011 - 09:11 AM

I think that as long as guys like Draper, Holmstrom, and Bertuzzi can keep being productive, then keep signing them. I love having a few wily veterans on the team. I think Bert's steal/goal yesterday was a prime example of that. Up until Chelios' last season, he was fun to watch out there with the "whipper-snappers". I recall one game a couple of years ago when Chelios (without looking) side-stepped a guy taking a run at him, causing the guy to board himself... Mickey laughed and said "I think Chris has seen that move a couple of times in his career!"

Good one, but I still like "The Tater!"

#1981510 WCSF Game 5 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Sharks 2

Posted by Gizmo on 08 May 2010 - 11:56 PM

I feel terrible. I absolutely feel that the San Jose Sharks did not earn this series.

I cannot go along with that... I think Mickey's summation at the end of the broadcast summed it up. SJ deserved full credit for winning this thing, but the refs didn't help matters. That no-call on the hit on Franzen was the bad officiating coup de grace of the whole series.

All in all, I don't feel too bad about this one... we spotted them 3 goals, and the ref have been brutal to us, and we're only down one goal.

Someone in Denver either has no sense of history, or a funny sense of humor... I'm watching the Avs/Sharks game and during one of the breaks I realize that they're playing Kiss' "Detroit Rock City" over the PA in the arena!!! :D
