#2450789 A story about Chelios

Posted by Echolalia on 04 November 2013 - 05:49 PM

http://sports.yahoo....-223053286.html

 

This was an excellent read and I had no idea that his path to the NHL was what it was.  On a particular note, the article made a point to talk about Cheli's commitment to staying in shape, mentioning how he would sometimes ride his bike to the Joe from his place in Bloomfield Hills, and the stuff about his cardio workouts in a sauna.  Everyone makes a big deal about Howe lasting until 52 (which is definitely a huge deal, don't get me wrong), but I wonder whether in today's NHL, whether lasting until 48 is an equally impressive feat.  The four year gap is a big one, especially when you're talking about those years around 50.  But at the same time, it takes serious commitment to succeed after 40, especially on defense, and we've all heard stories about how Cheli's workout regime would make other, younger NHLers keel over and vomit.  Anyway, its a good read.

#2450711 Announcer Ozzie

Not to take anything away from Ozzie and Murph, but it really makes me appreciate how difficult commentating can be, and how phenomenal Mickey Redmond is at his position.

Does anyone actually vote for the player of the game?  One night we need to organize the LGW crew to vote for some random player who would never actually get voted for, and see how many votes FSD actually gets.  Someone like Cleary.




#2450325 Franzen believes hes playing well.

uhhh have you seen this guy's table tennis serve?  He's playing phenomenally! 

 

 

edit: oh we're talking hockey..

I'll be watching this one at 0.5x speed.  You know, so I can follow Helm.

Autobiographical masturbation? Wait til Joe Thornton comes out with his book.




#2449969 Philly Capitals line brawl

What a joke.  Flyers get embarrassed on the ice, try to goon it up, and now they're down two players.

Look guys, a feature on Dan Cleary choosing to stay here instead of playing for Philly lol

Coming next, a special on why Franzen is worth every penny of his contract




#2449545 The most annoying things about being at games?

Posted by Echolalia on 01 November 2013 - 07:22 PM

If the worst part of going to a hockey game, is the people around you, then maybe it's YOU who shouldn't be attending games.The extreme lack of compassion for the uneducated mass of people is just about as bad as the fact that the mass of people are in a prescription pill alcohol induced zombie uneducated coma. You have a few options, become the President and reform education and healthcare so that everyone growing up isn't a complete zombie brain, watch the game from home, or get a damn suite. 

 

lol wat?

So I noticed that despite Weiss' terrible play so far, I still find myself liking him much more than Franzen. Weiss turnover= "no big deal, buddy, we're still pulling for ya! You'll get the next one!"
Franzen turnover = "Cant you do anything right?!"

I agree with this.  Dude gets ride of the puck the second he gets it.  I want him carrying the puck, making plays, and creating offense.  Not dishing to Cleary...for whatever reason. 

 

Well if you want to look good by comparison, a good strategy would be to get the puck to Cleary...




#2449208 NHL Goal Light

Posted by Echolalia on 31 October 2013 - 12:11 AM

There are guys who sit behind a button who have a relatively clear view of the net, and when they see the puck cross the line, they press the button. Several years back, the goal light guys used to be in booths right behind the net, but they moved them elsewhere to put in more spectator seats.

Whatevs dude.  I distinctly recall something about you wanting to feel the tickle of his sweet 'stache.  Though perhaps not as much as you'd like to see the sheen of Pierre's head.

Sheen of Pierre's head indeed

Be careful offering sexual favors. I still owe *gulp* Pierre McGuire a lil somethin' somethin' for a win last season...

 

Knowing how lost puppy he is with Doc Emeric, I wouldn't be surprised if Doc has to be there too.  In any event, it would be cool to get some professional commentating for the deed.

 

"DRIVE!  AND SCORE!!!"




#2448784 What would you do?...

Posted by Echolalia on 30 October 2013 - 09:25 AM

I don't know what I would do, but I want to see Nyquvist, Helm, and Tatar making up our third line at some point this season.
