#2409083 Jokes, know any?

Posted by Echolalia on 21 May 2013 - 09:32 PM

awesome thread idea

 

A business man was having an affair with his secretary, and one Saturday afternoon he was over at her place.Things got a little frisky and after the deed was done, both the man and the secretary fell asleep.  A few hours later the man wakes up in a panic and instructs his secretary to go find his shoes, and rub them in the grass and dirt outside.  Confused, she obliges, and the man puts his shoes on and drives home to meet his wife, who had been waiting for him in the living room.

"Where have you been??" She asks accusingly.

"Wife, I cannot lie to you.  I've been having an affair with my secretary.  We made love all afternoon."

Looking down at his shoes, the wife responds "You filthy liar!  You've been playing golf!"

#2400783 Leaving a job.

Posted by Echolalia on 09 May 2013 - 09:46 PM

I will be leaving my job at the end of the month to start medschool, and the people that I work with are all really awesome and we have developed into something of a family over the last year or so.  We goof around at work, tease each other, help each other out, support each other in tough times, grab dinner and drinks, movies, etc etc.  These friendships are worth hanging onto, so I will make it a point to keep in touch and meet with them whenever time permits.  I can't help but think about how I'm going to miss seeing everyone on a daily basis, but at the same time, this job (while fun and stimulating) will not provide me with the opportunities that going to school will, so its in my best interest to leave.  Besides, going to school (or in your case a new job) will be a new setting with a whole new group of people that you can befriend. 

I didn't know you had aspergers, Duck Guy!




#2398724 WCQF Game 4 GDT : Ducks 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT) - (Series tied, 2-2)

Posted by Echolalia on 07 May 2013 - 01:13 AM

I just got back from the game and omg my voice is so shot. Easily the best Wings game I have ever been too. Howard played amazing and saved our asses more than a couple times.

 

The crowd was unreal. I don't know how clear everything on TV was but there was a "Let's go Red Wings" chant literally every 15 seconds and the "You got Kronwalled" chant was just so epic. Nice to see the "Todd Bertuzzi" chant back as well. For my girlfriends first game ever, she is now spoiled if I ever take her to a regular season game. I don't have anything else to say, that was so great!

 

I was there too!

I have never heard the Joe that electric in all my years of attending games.  I wish I could watch the game again on TV to see how much of our screaming translated to FSN or NBC.  I cannot speak at all right now with how hoarse I am.  What a night!




#2397241 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

Posted by Echolalia on 06 May 2013 - 09:07 AM

That message went out the window with the unpunished Weber headslam.


I agree. Weber should have been removed from that series for at least two games, perhaps more. But we aren't discussing Weber's actions from last year, we are discussing Abby's hit from last game, and that one they got right.
The Wings aren't given a free pass because the league fell on its face with the decision to not suspend Weber last year. Everyone on the ice still needs to be accountable of how they play.


#2397168 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

They got the call right. I don't think it was a malicious hit, but it was careless, and the league is really trying to remove contact to the head from the game. They let this one slide and that message goes out the window.


#2391154 WCQF: (7) Red Wings vs. (2) Ducks

Bring it on!




#2390645 4/27 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Stars 0

Posted by Echolalia on 27 April 2013 - 05:41 PM

I can't wait to see Darren Helm score tonight!   Wait, he hasn't been playing, you say?  Well then I look forward to seeing Todd Bertuzzi dominate the corners and feed Dats the puck!  Erm, he's out too?  Well I'm still really excited to see Sammuelsson shoot the puck 15 times into the shins of the opponent but score on the 16th shot! Oh, he's missed the whole season?  Well at least Cleary has been injured and missed all season too right?  Right?? ...You mean to tell me he has been playing this entire time?

 

So tell me again how is it that we are even in position to win a playoff spot again??  Oh well.   Do whatever it is you've been doing and get the two points, in spite of everything! 




#2388444 Dekeyser Nickname Time

Posted by Echolalia on 23 April 2013 - 05:59 PM

If this forum were bigger on memes and running jokes, I would suggest we just forget about DeKeyser and change all of our usernames to just about everything that has been mentioned so far




#2386884 Mike Babcock Line swapping.. Too much?

Posted by Echolalia on 20 April 2013 - 01:16 PM

There was another coach who swapped lines even more than Babcock has.

He goes by the name Scotty Bowman.


#2385080 Bert thinks he'll be back this season

Posted by Echolalia on 15 April 2013 - 01:07 PM

Bettuzzi's biggest asset, and one our team has desperately needed is his size and puck protection. Our team is not strong on the puck along the perimeter (aside from Dats and Z who are regularly double-teamed). The Wings play much better when they can hold onto the puck down low and dictate the speed of the game. Bertuzzi is good at hanging onto pucks and moving them to open ice, and its going to give Pavel and Z more time and space to be creative.

Having said that, this guy is on a multi-year contract right now if I'm not mistaken, and I think it may be a better option to wait and make sure he's as healthy ad possible before jumping into the chaos at 70-80%. But I'm not the doctor nor the player, so it ain't my call.


#2380909 How much do we miss Rafalski?!?!

Posted by Echolalia on 05 April 2013 - 07:30 PM

I'm holding out hope that Brendan Smith will be able to fill Rafalski's shoes in a couple years, after the rookie mistakes leave his system. He saw the ice so well last year during his brief stint. There's no way those games were all an accident.


#2380141 Concerned - we might not make it in to the playoffs

Posted by Echolalia on 04 April 2013 - 10:35 AM

It will be exciting! We get to see how our young guys and new leadership respond to this type of adversity.


#2379836 Shocking, Wings aren't active as trade deadline expires

Posted by Echolalia on 03 April 2013 - 05:57 PM

again..fine.  But be a seller then. 

 

Why?  Despite leading the league in man games lost, we are in a playoff spot right now, there's no need to blow up the team.  Committing your team to selling off your assets is the last option that any GM should think of, and will likely get anyone fired when they're not even bottom dwellers.  There's a lot of money to be had in postseason tickets, memorabilia, tv deals, etc which is ultimately what makes owners tick.




#2379811 Shocking, Wings aren't active as trade deadline expires

Posted by Echolalia on 03 April 2013 - 05:33 PM

There are only a few ways to get players onto a hockey team.  Draft them, acquire them through free agency, pick them up off waivers, trade for them.  Only one of these options requires you lose something (RFA also I suppose, but that's still a rarity in this league).  The salary cap makes draft picks, prospects, and roster players that much more valuable, so trades are that much less desirable an option to collect players for your team.  I understand that its frustrating to get your hopes up every trade deadline expecting to land some star, but in today's hockey league its more important than ever to be economic.  That means developing your talent, holding onto your picks, and making big roster changes through free agency, not through trades.  Its boring, but its also a smart way to go.

 

I'm in the minority which believes Holland did not make a mistake this deadline by not making any moves.
