Then they introduced some middling variation, Guinness Extra Stout, which is good (only in bottles). I've heard rumors that the real stuff is back, in the form of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout (only in bottles), but I haven't seen it yet.
to be fair, I'm not a drinker and I know Coors Light is liquid piss. I'd rather drink some nice craft beer, but it's just comfortable for me, dammit!

Favorite Current Red Wing player(s): Zetterberg. Lidstrom, Datsyuk and Kronwall are distant runner-ups.

Favorite All-Time Red Wing player(s): Yzerman, Zetterberg's closing in though. Hasek's third.

Favorite non-Red Wing player(s): Ovechkin, Saku Koivu, Luongo, Iggy, Eric Staal, SUBBAN!, and Price. Alessandro Del Piero, if he counts

Least-Favorite non-Red Wing player(s): Seto, Horton, Lucic, Cooke, Crosby.

Favorite food: Tortellini ala crema rosa. Homemade, of course. Big fan of lasagna and pizza too.

Favorite beer: More of a Smirnoff guy, but I don't mind Molson.

Other teams/sports you watch: I see a lot of the Habs of course, as for other sports: Football (49ers), soccer (Juventus ), tennis (Federer and Raonic).

I'll throw in a few others:

Favorite band/music artist: U2, bar none. Also a big 30 Seconds to Mars and Eminem fan.

School: Just graduated CEGEP and am on my way to McGill (and getting one of the ties ).

Favorite movie(s): Saving Private Ryan, Red Dawn, Shaun of the Dead...

We need one of those OT topics for random discussion on this board.

Name (if comfortable giving out) and/or origin of screen-name: John Langabeer, I'm editting this cause I changed NY screen-name. I have it because I used to drive a 92 Prelude but side swiped a tree so I combined that with the lyrics from a yellowcard song I used to listen too...
Where ya from: Lancaster, PA
Favorite Current Red Wing player(s):All of them haha.... but for real Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Kronwall...

Least-Favorite non-Red Wing player(s):Crosby, Perry, Pronger... the list goes on...
Favorite food: Chicken... I guess anything delicious

Other teams/sports you watch: I pay attention to the Hershey Bears a lot so I do like to root for the Capitals.
Other Sites: I do most of my posting on letsgowings but I do more reading and browsing then anything. By the time I go to post what I want to say has already been said 4-5 times so I figure why repeat it again. I want to become more active though so hopefully I can do that...


I also read somewhere I think it was Heaton who mentioned SC2... Havn 't played recently but let me know if you ever want to game... Also any PS3 NHL 11 or Cod guys out there let me know...

Name (if comfortable giving out) and/or origin of screen-name:
Screen-name: I read much but don't often post, ergo taking any longer than thirty seconds to think up a name means I'm using the first thing that pops into my head. Johnny 5 is a character from the Short Circuit films.
Where ya from:
I am from the upper peninsula.
How you became a Red Wings fan:
I am from the upper peninsula.
Favorite Current Red Wing player(s):
Datsyuk.
Favorite All-Time Red Wing player(s):
Yzerman, Lidstrom and Datsyuk.
Favorite non-Red Wing player(s):
I try to watch other teams regularly but I don't develop longstanding crushes for individual players.
Least-Favorite non-Red Wing player(s):
Mostly the players that are popularly perceived as dirty. I really don't like the Sedins though, among star players.
Favorite food:
Creamy pastas in general. Alfredo in particular.
Favorite beer:
I don't drink beer.
Other teams/sports you watch:
The NFL--watching the Lions is humbling. Most sports are fun to play but few are fun to watch from the sidelines. I hate basketball and I used to play baseball when I was younger and like to throw the ball around still but I can't watch it at all.
