#2455032 Today's Chuckle - NHL selling team Snuggies

Posted by Austrianwing on 18 November 2013 - 05:38 PM

Looks to be just another piece of cheezy merchendice sold by the NHL.  It's not the first time they've had pretty rediculous products you just roll your eyes to...and probably won't be the last
I did find a pretty interesting Daniel Cleary figurine.



Awesome :lol:

But you need to scuff up one of the eyes...

I actually get really annoyed with him at times, he will start yelling, but waits forever sometimes to tell you if *insert players name* scored or not, and when you can't watch it sucks when He yells *AND DATSYUK WITH A BEAUTIFULLLL DEKE OFF A PASS FROM KRONWALL DEKED AROUND 3 PLAYERS FROM CENTER ICE... *then trails off* and he scored/just missed the net (all of which comes after the shot has been taken and he already scored/missed)


Hahaha! Ok, you got a point there :)

Hockey really isn't a sport one can listen to. Audio commentary on other sports can at least give one a general picture of what is going on. Not so with hockey.


Yeah, radio doesn't hold a candle to seeing the game, but I used to end up stuck with radio pretty often way back when. If the play-by-play guy is good you can at least get a decent sense of the progress of the game. With these tools I might as well put on a completely unrelated show for all the information they are conveying...


Edited for: rebellious typing fingers...

Seriously? This game was annoying enough already

It's a hoax. Like the moon landing.


Also, I thought we were past the whole people-thinking-it's-Kronvall-because-omg-Swedish! thing.

Maybe someone set time going the wrong way. By next week I'll be unfolding to the sports section to find out the scores like in '95 or so :-D

#2415541 WCSF Game 7 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 2 OT (CHI wins series, 4-3)

Posted by Austrianwing on 29 May 2013 - 09:57 PM

Time to get back to posting rather than lurking. Whatever happens, I am really proud of this team. I gue
ss we are so unworthy to be on the ice with theyse hawks that it takes OT in game seven...

#2208719 9/21 Exhibition GDT: Red Wings 2 at Penguins 3

Posted by Austrianwing on 21 September 2011 - 08:37 PM

I can honestly say I hate the Penguins less when Malkin is actually playing hard and not being a ****** and Sid isn't in the lineup :yowza:

If I didn't have to listen to the announcers polishing his knob, I might have admitted to myself he played well :lol:

Seriously.... a 5 minute major for that?

I thought that call was over the top, but what bothered me more was that that got 5, while the shove from Letang on Tatar gets nothing. Bad calls are bad, but if they're going to call it like that, at least call it consistently... Ah well. <_<

#2197662 This is why Commodore was the best signing ever...

Posted by Austrianwing on 10 July 2011 - 03:39 AM

I'll go on record to say that Commodore 64 is just straight up funny, and I say why the hell not? The article above seems really uptight to me. What the hell is wrong with a little fun? Anyone remember this one?

Having a few laughs does not equal not taking the franchise seriously, :rolleyes:

Sorry to do this, but I got to thinking about discussions past... Seemed like it might be amusing to resurrect a Zombie of an old thread given the circumstances. Hope it's worth a couple of laughs :P

Games 6 and 7 - Wings/Avs 2002

That game seven against the Blues was indescribable. I'm not sure how I would even try to relate the total freakout I engaged in when Stevie scored that goal. But, right now I am hoping this is the game six leading to the game seven that followed against the 'lanche in '02... I actually missed seeing game seven and was stuck with listening on the radio, because I was in Denver helping a friend move away from there that day. I did get to wander around Denver that night to see all their fans stumbling around, dazed. Beer never tasted so good...

#2059525 Lidstrom & Modano Interviews on CBC's After Hours

Posted by Austrianwing on 08 November 2010 - 03:11 AM

Who all saw After Hours tonight? The Lidstrom and Modano Interviews were awesome!

Rage, those really were some great interviews. Thank you for sharing, I would not have stumbled across them I don't think...

Edit: That was supposed to be a quote... but I am amazingly incompetent at the internet for a CS major sometimes :lol:

#2056572 Class Act Organization

Posted by Austrianwing on 03 November 2010 - 02:32 AM

First of all, the important stuff: I wish your brother a speedy recovery, it is hard enough to see it happen to family at the end of their years. I can't begin to imagine what you and your brother are going through right now.
I will take a little consolation in the fact that the team I root for seems to live up to ideals that are more important than winning a game. I have always felt that the organization has shown something more than just success on the ice, and this re-affirms it. Proud to be a fan right now... :thumbup:
