This year Betts has 1 more goal than Gretzky, and for only $550,000!

Tuesday was just a special teams disaster save the goal by Carcillo.
2 shorties allowed and we came within seconds of allowing a 3rd to Staal.
Remember last years team didnt allow one until the final day of the season?
Do we lead the league in shorties allowed this season?
When was the last time a Flyer team allowed 2 shorties in one game?
FAIL

It's a pet peeve of mine, same with people yelling "shoot". I'm sure you and every other ******* on this board have pet peeves that I think are dumb, too.
So it's my fault that you freaked out over a pet peeve and decided to not tell anyone that it was simply a pet peeve?

I have pet peeves, but I don't ***** about them and then act like I wasn't *****ing about something completely pointless. I also usually go out of my way to point out a pet peeve when I'm *****ing about it (which you didn't).

We do lead the league in short handed goals against with 6. Minnesota and San Jose are behind us with 5 against.

That's a surprising one. Then again, Chicago probably has a lot to do with that.

Bottom line, Pens are much better than we are now. This is gonna be a tough one to win.

I'm sorry I opened this can of worms.
I go on a lot of meaningless rants on meaningless topics. Helps me vent off the frustration of ****** games. You've been around long enough to shrug it off. Don't take things too literal, right? I've wished people death before because of a hockey game. I didn't see anyone saying "you shouldn't do that" because it's just a rant.

Sorry to those I offended who really love the phrase "he was invisible".

Yeah, it's alright, I totally know what you mean. For instance, I've seen a bunch of people suggest that Richards is a "poor man's Zetterberg." I don't understand. What would a poor man have to do with Zetterberg? Or Richards? Are they trying to say that Richards is poor? Or are they trying to say that some poor man is the owner of Zetterberg? How could it be possible for any person, let alone some poor man, to be the owner of Zetterberg? Do people seriously think that could be true? Jesus. And even if that is the case, it still doesn't explain where Richards fits in.

But anyway, I pointed all that stuff out to some Detroit fans that were discussing it on their board. One of them told me to "mind my own business." I didn't understand. I don't own a business. Does that guy think I own a business? How the hell would he know if I own a business or not? How would it be possible for him to know that? And even if he was right, I'm trying to have a discussion about Richards, so why the hell should I go do that? Jesus.

But whatever, those Detroit fans are kind of dumb, really. Really low level hockey fans.

It's good to hold grudges on the internet. I must've really hurt your feelings.

Who has a grudge? I was simply having a blast with this hilarious situation, at your expense. I probably wouldn't have done that to you had you just manned up and admitted to your gigantic blunder. But no, no, you had to dig in and keep being tough and defending yourself.

I don't mean "dig in" literally.

How is it a blunder? I hate when people say that. It's not a ****ing blunder to hate something.

Dude, seriously? Maybe you should reread what you wrote...

I saw a lot of that in this thread. He's been bad for the last month, but honestly, how do you not see him out there? Do you just watch the puck and depend on the announcers to tell you who's around? Jesus.
Everything about the above is a big old ****ing blunder. You were blathering on like you were because you clearly didn't understand that those phrases weren't meant to be taken literally. I thought the previous comparisons I made two posts ago would've gotten that message across, but here's a definition.

And then there was the pricelessly ironic ending to your post, which was definitely good for a laugh.

I'm far from having any type of grudge, or being hurt or angry, or however else you'd like to spin it. All that's happened here is I read a trainwreck of a post that was alluding to something I previously said, so I commented on it. That's how messageboards go.
