Got offered free tickets from a caps season ticket holder here at work but had to decline due to my rather late work schedule these days. Maybe if Hershey had a little better caps prospect swag it might have persuaded me.

Carlzner 12-06-2012 07:29 PM

Will it be on TV

Langway 12-06-2012 07:35 PM

On CSN now.

1-0 Admirals.

You didn't miss much. I hadn't seen an AHL game since the last lockout (Portland Pirates), and was a bit shocked by some of the lazy play. Seemed to be a complete
lack of high-level skill. I came away thinking about how true something my old, late friend, John the Goon used to say:

"When you count the actual numbers, it really is a long-shot for any player other than a 1st rounder to make the NHL"

He was so right.

BTCG 12-07-2012 09:16 AM

Oh.... nice meeting the six of you who came by my section. Cost me a few bucks in beer, but well worth it to meet you guys!

Hopefully, the lockout will end sooner than later, and we can meet up for dinner at the Turtle, like we discussed.

Does anyone know what happened with Orlov? I didn't see him on the ice for most of the second half of the game, but I don't see anything about it on the Bears site. I'm wondering if it was injury or benching.

How do you know Ted didn't send them over as spies?

Upper body injury, French said postgame that he didn't think it was serious.

Easy... if you're at the rink, and he has you targeted, he waits until you're walking in the concourse, and tackles you.

In all seriousness though,

If I'd have told you a few years ago that refs fix games, you'd have told me that I was crazy.

And yet, an NBA ref was caught red-handed doing this.

Ted and George met with us in 1999, and Ted asked us to post positive comments, only.

So, these things do occur.

I thought this was a Harry Potter fan fiction site?

So what you are saying is, you are rattling your sabre to scare some interns into passing notes into Fat Ted's office to stop being the one who is keeping the players off the ice? You are like a modern day Rosa Parks.

No, I simply stated I stayed home from the game. You assumed I was trying to make some statement that the team would hear. I could care less honestly. Sorry I couldn't make you waste more of your life here....maybe next topic.

I'm pretty sure you used the word "protest".

And....


I protested with my empty seats 8 rows off the ice.... Stop making more of this than there is.

NobodyBeatsTheWiz 12-07-2012 03:16 PM

Was good to get the hockey fix in.

If Orlov doesn't get significant PP time when the Caps start playing again, it'll be a travesty. He looked fantastic at the top of Hershey's umbrella setup. Shame he didn't finish the game.

I protested by not buying any stadium concessions. But that's a normal protest for me, so I didn't really make a dent. Oh well.

You're probably right... it's all my imagination that many are trying to use the internet to strategically influence people.

Twitter, Facebook, etc, etc, are all sites that nobody uses.

Who tries to use social networking?

I apologize for suggesting the idea.

I'd like more physical play from him. Didn't see much last night.

Thought you told me once that you were in row H, in 416?

Edit: I do rely on memory... I do not Google things, and then post. So... I do make mistakes. If I am remembering incorrectly, I apologize, although I think I'm right: you did say that.

You could have moved, of course.
