#2620548 Babcock's already losing it?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 14 July 2015 - 08:47 PM

^ I'm a fruit roll up kinda guy. Lol


Dipping Dots are a whole nother story.

Dippin' dots suck.
The flavors that are supposed to be icy are creamy, and the flavors that are supposed to be creamy are icy.

And the laffy taffy thing.
Ha.
I got drunk and had a craving for the candy seeds in watermelon laffy taffy, so I bought like a whole box of it and they had taken out the seeds...
So I got upset.
And posted about it here


#2620787 Lovable Dan Cleary update thread

Posted by LAWings on 17 July 2015 - 03:24 PM

My sister passed away about 3 weeks ago from cancer.

 

A couple of seasons ago she had a chance to go to a Wings game.

 

My dad had been in contact with the Wings people and they were trying to work out who she might want to meet if she got the chance. It was up to me to ask her who she wanted to meet. Of course, we were trying to surprise her so I didn't want to just come out and say "Hey you're probably going to get to meet one of the players, who do you want to meet?"

 

So i would ask, "Hey Care, if you got to meet anybody on the wings who would you want to meet?"

 

"DAN CLEARY!" she'd exclaim.

 

So a couple of days later I would ask again. "DAN CLEARY!!" was the answer I got again.

 

She knew they were going to be going to the game when she went down to Ann Arbor, so I tried again, "No..Seriously....If you really got to meet one of the current Wings players when you go to the game, who would it be?"  I could not have given her a bigger hint without flat out just telling her!

 

"DAN CLEARY!"

 

So she and my dad and uncle went to the game and had a good time. Then the game was over. As they are trying to 'leave' the building, my uncle is leading the way with directions on where to go with my dad and sister following him. She still has no idea.

 

They end up in an area where she figures they aren't supposed to be. "Are we allowed down this way?"

 

Finally they end up standing against a wall with a bunch of other people with a Wings/arena employee telling them to just wait where they are.

 

"Are we meeting players?!" She had finally figured it out.

 

While they were waiting she felt she had accidentally bumped into someone behind her. She turned to say she was sorry to them. But nothing came out of her mouth. It was Nicklas Lidstrom that she had bumped into!! (This was during his last season when he wasn't playing due to his ankle) He saw she was trying to apologize and told her it was no big deal. Other players like Pavel and Zetterberg had walked through the hallway where they were waiting.

 

Finally Dan Cleary came out and asked "Are you Carrie?"

 

I don't remember much of what else happened (I wasn't there, just heard the stories afterward), but he was super nice to her, took a couple of pictures, and signed some things.

The jersey says

"To: Carrie    Best Wishes

 Your friend, Dan Clear 11"

 

He also had a signed bobble head sent to our house a couple of weeks later.

 

I always teased her about wanting to meet Cleary over anybody else, but she really enjoyed the whole experience

Ok, Danny Cleary is now my favorite player.

This isn't loyalty anymore. it has crossed into the obsession area. Kind of like when parents give their adult children money out of 'love" then the children use the money for destructive behavior.


It's nothing like that at all. I get what you're trying to say, but that analogy doesn't work.


#2620410 Ryan O’Reilly Charged With Impaired Driving

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 13 July 2015 - 07:59 PM

Less than two weeks after signing a seven year contract extension worth $52.5-million, Buffalo Sabres centre Ryan OReilly has been charged with impaired driving after a pickup truck collided with a Tim Hortons in Lucan, Ont.
 
Per AM980

The only way this sentence could be more Canadian, is if it said "sorry aboot that" somewhere in there.

#2618638 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

I guess I'm in the minority, but I never give a single thought to what number a player is going to wear.

 

Same here

I'll pretend to support you, but then complain to everyone who will listen because you play too soft.

Just write down the information to your savings account for me and I'll tell the nurse to turn you over in the afternoons so you can watch the birds like you like

I need an adult!

#2615189 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by Helmethead on 19 June 2015 - 12:47 AM

How does a player acquire stupid speed? Does a team pay more for this? Can young players go to stupid speed schools in the summer?
