If scoring 40 goals in a season is choking, I hope we put together a team of guys who choke. He was the last Red Wing to do so.

It was definitely a Big Lebowski reference.

Oregon's actually looks toned down from some of the things they have already done.

And then my laptop somehow posted that twice. Is it NSD yet?

Apparently I chose not to see the post you were replying to. My mistake as we essentially were saying the same thing. Carry on.

No O$U? Come on now. Let's be adults. It's OSU.

The TV screen seems to show the 12-2 ( I think) replay of the Wings vs Panthers game last night. Miller is in the penalty box on the screen which occurred with 2:32 left in the 3rd period. That should put the picture at around 1:50 or so.

Couldn't agree more Clarkie. He will definitely be the more talented of the father and son.

Saw him play at the U-17 tournament in Windsor a couple years ago. This kid is gonna be really good. There's a reason he was drafted by Arizona (I believe it was them) so early. Only wish we got to see him wear maize and blue for a year or two.
Larkin seems to be a lot like him. He's been fun to watch.

It is actually open to anyone, season ticket holder or not, but you typically have to purchase an Olympia Room pass for the low low price of 40.00 per group. I have season tickets and you would have to purchase them in addition to the cost of the season tickets. I actually had a friend call the box office and purchase a pass for a game last month.
However in terms of the GLI, it may be open to everyone without needing a pass. I have no idea on that front.

Bought one of the 3 game ticket packs last season at a "reduced price." Got sick and had to sell a couple of them and didn't even come close to breaking even. You're better off using StubHub most likely. Unless you are extremely particular about a certain section or row you'll be fine on that route.

Attempted to post a picture in the original post but it didn't show up. Here's attempt #2:

Word of advice. Cover the barcode and ESPECIALLY the numbers above it. You know how StubHub has instant download for tickets? You just gave someone an opportunity to post that ticket. I'd try to get that picture removed immediately. Enjoy the game. I shall be there as well.

There are 6 autobids for winning your conference available. There is 1 autobid that is guaranteed to not be a team in the top 16 of Pairwise Rankings so this year it's really a top 15 or better as the absolute threshold for having a chance. All 5 other conferences have at least 1 team that is in that top 16 already who could win their conference and not take away an at large.

Couldn't agree more. That game is Exhibit A for the "anything can happen in a one game contest" mantra. That ND team was stacked.

Was on campus at NIU recruiting interns back in 2008 when that happened there. It's such a travesty. They were bringing victims into the building where I happened to be in to start giving them medical treatment. It was pure shock for all of us.
Like the OP said, it's things like this that make us realize how insignificant a decommitment is. Stay safe everyone at Purdue.

OSU is #18. Cincy is #16.

We got 3 parking passes but will only need 2 of them. My buddies want to try to sell it there for like 30.00 but if anyone wants it for 25.00 and is local to Ann Arbor/metro Detroit, they can have it for that. I'd rather save someone on the board some money who missed the deadline. Email at email@example.com if you want it.

Didn't feel it warranted it's own thread but Dan Cleary signed/will sign with the Flyers for a 3 year deal worth 2.75M per year. Link: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=681912#&navid=nhl-search

My buddy seems convinced it will go to Gardner. I was pretty skeptical. However, there is this: http://www.mden.com/shopping/product.cgi?ADJ1320+1500. Apparently they are selling them in stores already. Seems like it would have to be more than just bringing the jersey out of retirement. My money is on it going to a prominent player. Put me down for Gardner as my guess.

I went to visit my cousin at VA Tech years ago for a game. They have a cheer when they are getting near the goal line something akin to "ohhh ohhh, ohhh ohhh, stick it in, stick it in, stick it in." I even saw it on the back of some t-shirts at the Sugar Bowl we played against them. By far the strangest cheer I've heard.

Was just about to post this. What a steal for the Wings. NHL.com link: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=680504. Not sure it gives much info but an option for those spurning the Freep.

How many does he need? Someone on this board bought all 4 of mine for that game and I think he only needs 2 of the 4.

Tell me more about this Federov guy. Did he play with Linstrom?
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Both Pavel and Z will hang||
Both Pavel and Z will hang from the rafters one day. Datsyuk is probably still the best combination of offense talent and defensive skill in the game. And even without another Cup (which hopefully isn't the case) his jersey will go up as well as Zetterberg's jersey. You don't have to just take my word for it. Ask Wayne Gretzky who said "“I think Zetterberg is the best player in the game (at his age),” Gretzky told NHL.com. “He’s been so physically beat up from the Stanley Cup playoffs, Olympics – all that goes with that – but he’s just very special.”
If the Great One is noticing I can promise others notice as well. Link: http://redwings.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=653805

Agreed. That's what I said in the other thread. As close as they were to each other in getting posted, at least I beat the other one by a minute or so. Would have looked even dumber had the 2 been reversed.
