Do they have the purple flavor?

Does it come in "Oh Dean Green" for the envious among us?

How about Pennerade? It looks excellent and the first sip is great but then it turns so sour that it makes you want to spit it out.

You have to read the directions on the Pennerade bottle. It says to "shake well" in order to kind of wake the drink up so you can get the full flavor.

I always thought you needed to refrigerate it so that you could remove the fat once it separates.

... Yeah, I'm not holding my breath on that one. That might actually mean that he could be taken to task for not fulfilling expectations. Not gonna happen.

He didn't even talk about expectations in the clip anyway. He just went over a bunch of **** that we already knew. At least he didn't trash any of his players or denigrate their college programs, so I suppose there's some progress.

Man, there you go again. Give him a chance, that was only the first segment of the interview. I'm sure he is going to say that Red Berenson doesn't know jack about teaching defensemen how to play hockey and that certain shrimps from MI have never really amounted to anything in the NHL before he gets done.

That was said to a reporter in confidence and the reporter blew it by reporting it. The reporter admitted as much.

Someone grabbed Herby's Haterade instead of K17's Kool-Aid!

Everyone knows Jack would have been 10000x better had he played major junior. Look at how well it worked out for Thomas Hickey and Colten Teubert.

But seriously, are we going to hear about actual goals for 2012, like winning the division or a playoff series or two. Or is it going to be more cliches about growing the core and building a culture.

Pennerade is supposed to be launching P2 at the end of this summer. No fat, less sugar, same great taste.

Your Hero - zero trips to the conference finals

And it's obvious that those facts sting a little, because you keep bringing that shrimp up.

... If it was Lombardi's first-ever interaction with the media, it would be one thing. But it's not. What did Dean expect the reporter to do? Burp him after it was over?

I don't even think the Canucks board is more self Hating than this one...

Wow is that saying a lot.

Congrats.

The Kings fan' Manifesto:
Hate TM
Hate DL
Hate AEG
Hate the Logo's Jersery
Hate Every transaction that sends a player away.
Hate The staples Ice
Hate Posters that are positive most of the time.
Hate Dustin Brown as Captain.
Hate that Dustin does stuff for the community.
Hate that we don't have someone like Danny Heater sucking up 7m on LW.
Hate our 40 year cup drought.
HAte That I hate everything about this team, but for some reason I am still a fan (shrugs shoulders).
Hate That Dean is not batting 1000 in the draft.
HAte That Dean is not a trading mofo.

Wait why am I still a fan ?

I believe this is the first part of the interview ? If that is the case. Give Dean some more time. I am sure he will throw a few tidbits out that everyone can jump on. Should be a great read with some popcorn.

(Little note) I have a friend that is a Die hard Sabres fan. He likes to pop his head around Hf boards (other teams threads). Asked him what he thought about ours. One word came out of his mouth (CLassic) followed by a lot of LOL. I agree

LOL, you're more upset about that than JOHNSON . . . and isn't he the same guy who signed that 7 year extension?? If Jack got over it, so can you . . .

Obviously not.

...And the shrimp thing - some people have no sense of humor.

Anyway, I think the goal should be to win a division championship. I know the playoffs ultimately are everything, but putting something measurable in front of a young team up front is a good idea I think.

It is an attainable goal and something that should be strived for. This team doesn't have enough experience yet to allow themselves to just make the playoffs and then assume they can do some damage.

A Division Crown can be won by this group. Dean should demand it this next season.

And I swear if Gasoline gets any Higher. Dean should be fired straight away. Terry as well, cause I am sure it's his fault in some way.

You aren't suggesting that U of M actually develops players are you? U of M sports are some of the biggest underachievers in the NCAA. They get some of the best if not the best recruits in the NCAA for hockey and football and have one 2 hockey national championships in what.. 50 years? They've won one damned national championship in football in 50+ years.

Are you this critical of their athletic programs? If so, your head must be ready to explode with the inpeptitude of the teams you follow. I think they should have the slogan "Michigan, always good but never great".

Don't worry, he is going to use the skills that Red gave him to become the player we all want him to be.

The reporter knew DAMN well what he was doing yet he did it anyway. Thanksfully we still got JJ signed long term despite this. I'd never give an interview to that reporter.

Thems Fightin words. Michigan gets there they just can't win the Big one. Although the Football Program right now is a mess.

Hey I'm a U of M fan too. I just don't get where he thinks they are anything but underachievers. A school that gets the recruits they do should have accomplished a lot more than they have in those two sports.
