I'm PublicEnemy, and I approve this message.

(I'd probably switch out Subban for someone else though...besides that, the list is spot on)

Agree with everyone but Neil. The rest are brats, Neil seems like the perfect 3rd liner with some edge to me. Doesn't really have a history of suspensions, and walks the line of hard-nosed and dirty absolutely perfectly. Can get on my nerves when playing against the Canes but I've never had a problem with him otherwise.

Your list, I'm not trying to tell you who you should hate and not hate haha. Just saying that I actually respect Neil a great deal as a hockey player.

As I opened this thread to see the latest post, I received, for the first time ever, an ad for a Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon T-Shirt at the top of the page.

The internet is a ****ing scary place.

4. Five Guys (knew I forgot something important)
3. Jersey Mike's
2. Buffalo Brothers

HM: Wendy's, Olive Garden, Red Robin...

One of the hardest things for me is going up to Lake Boone Trail planning to eat at Which Wich with my family...and fighting the urge to go to Buffalo Brothers instead. They're both so good that it's unfair they're right near each other.

Top 5 games:

1. Chrono Trigger

The best game ever. End of. Man I miss the 16-bit era.

2. Star Wars - Tie Fighter

3. Monkey Island 1 and 2

4. Final Fantasy VI (Final Fantasy 3 in the US)

5. Red Dead Redemption

Prolly left out a fair few of my favourites, but if I think too long about this then the list would just be neverending. Honourable mentions: The Longest Journey, Zelda: Links Awakening, GTA 3, Bioshock, Diablo 2, Final Fantasy XI and about 20 others.

Neil is certainly one of those players that you love to have on your team, but hate otherwise. He was on my mind because of the game late in the season where he laid a couple of questionable hits on some of the 'Canes. There's also plenty of Eastern Conference bias in my list. If I saw guys like Dorsett and Ott more, they would probably make the list judging by their reputations.

Lucic would definitely be on the list, but I wanted to try and keep it to one player per team. Another player that isn't a favorite of mine, that some may not agree with, is Alexei Emelin. I have a major problem with a player that will make questionable hits and then turtle everytime someone tries to fight because of some past facial injury.

Top 5 video games

5 - Mortal Kombat


4 - Killer Instinct (this won out over MK just because, while both games kick large amounts of ass, I like the music of KI better)


3 - The Legend of Zelda, Orcarina of Time (best Zelda game of date)


2 - Super Mario Bros. 3 (is there really any question why this is so high?)


1 - Metroid (to hard to pick a single game, so I'ma pick the entire series since it's the greatest series of all time.)

This is so phenomenal its 10-15 b-sides would rank in my top 100 as well had they been released as an album. It houses "What Is the Light", which is my favorite song.
Just got this album per your suggestion, only a couple songs into it but so far a great buy. Thanks!
