Looks like he's still sticking it up everyone's rear end to this day, eh MacTavish?

In the back of Mactavish's mind for a long time!

Wonder how long that was? Dude must have gotten at least minor brain damage all them years playing without a helmet.

Nevertheless, never signing Satan was a cardinal sin.

nothing. Now go find the 13th floor in a high rise.

I despise religious freaks. Are you kidding? Sports names are not literal. It's not like we're going up against a bunch of bears when we go to Boston or a bunch of pedofiles when we go to Nashville.

I love Nashville, and can't say anything bad about the organization though I couldn't help but laugh at that one!

I have to say I find the names Hurricanes, Flames, and Lightning offensive though! All natural/deadly occurrences!

I think the Saints should change their name. I'm offended by their religious backing.

Also, the Redskins and Indians are offensive sports names. Same with the Fighting Sioux and the Illini. Just disregards the lives of native Americans.

And the Penguins? That's messed up too. Why name a team after a guy tried to kill Bettman, I mean Batman.

Isn't the number 13 considered a lucky number in some legend or another? Not sure what the story was behind that tale.

Don`t know about that, but 13 is considered a lucky number among Christians in Slovakia.

We say "trinast pan Boh pri nas" (it rhymes) which means "thirteen, God`s with us". #interestingthingsyoudontreallyneedtoknow

Alright that's where it came from then thanks! I think it might be considered lucky in other regions too. I'd Have to do some research on it. This could very well be why no one wears 13 on the Devils. Sort of a jinx superstition thing or something.
