stopped into GameStop for some Christmas shipping. Old ladies know more about gaming than I do - they were showing me where things were and giving recs. gaming has gone very mainstream.

Something that always seems to surprise people is that the average console gamers' age is 37 now.

Great movie, and reps Pittsburgh to boot.
If you're in the mood for something even crazier, I highly recommend Bronson. Hardy straight up steals the show in that one.

We are organizing a most handsome player in the league poll tournament for the poll board, could you guys give me 3 of the most handsome players on the team?

We are doing a 68 player tournament and are doing 2 from each team with 8 players as wildcards.

Well in that case I would go with Letang, Vitale, and Cooke.

If Letang doesn't win the whole thing it will be a travesty!

I would say him, James Neal, and Crosby. Craig Adams isn't bad if you like 'em a little older.

This is a random health related question, but has anyone here experienced any nerve damage, peripheral neuropathy, or chronic tingling/numbness in arms and legs? If so, did you have any particular treatments/medications that worked?

The reason I ask is because I have been dealing with these types of symptoms on right arm and leg (in addition to swollen lymph node and vericose veins on right leg) since last March. I had a freak infection of cat scratch fever (yeah apparently it's not just a Ted Nugent song) that was difficult to diagnose because I didn't have any visible scratches. We had adopted a kitten off the street and he must have infected me.

Anyway, I was treated for the infection and the symptoms (crippling headaches, giant lymph node, pain in leg) initially went away, but over time the numbness tingling came back and spread. Doctor thought I had neurological cat scratch and treated as such. Symptoms initially went away and came back again. It's now been almost a year since initial symptoms and have seen 2 neurologists, infectious disease doc, and spent 3k on tests (2 mri's, emg, spinal tap followed by crippling headaches and blood patch to stop them) and they still can't figure out what's wrong other than I had 2 inflamed nerves in my brain and likely some in my arm and leg which causes pain. I also had one incompetent neurologist continually insist I had carpel tunnel on my right hand which is bull**** since I'm left handed and rarely use my right arm for those type of activities.

I'm at the point where there really isn't a diagnosis but I need to treat the pain. It's kept me from running, playing hockey, exercising, and living life the way I want/used to. Alcohol of course makes it worse so I haven't been able to enjoy all of the craft beers I love, but I'll settle for exercise over booze.

I'm only 26 and really getting frustrated. I feel like this is consuming my life and the doctors aren't really taking me seriously since I look healthy in the exams and tests other than the lymph node (which they claim can take over a year to go down) and bulging veins on my leg which is likely a symptom of the node but is painful none the less.

Not looking for a pity party but just curious if any have experienced these symptoms and if their doctors prescribed any particular treatments that seemed to help. Thanks.

My early Christmas present to myself:



I finally broke down and bought it after they dropped the price 150 bucks the other day. Plus I got a little freaked out because they've cleared a lot of their inventory, lately. It's a knockoff... but they make the best LP knockoffs out there. If anyone knows a little about guitars... your eyes will probably bug out a little bit when you read the description and then how much it costs. If it had "Gibson" on the headstock... it'd be over 3000 dollars.

http://www.rondomusic.com/al30102tsp90.html

I don't know how they get away with charging the pittance that they do for these guitars. Slave labor, I guess. I threw in a hardshell case for 50 bucks, while I was at it. I never, ever, ever buy a guitar without playing it first... but I had to break one of my cardinal rules for this one.

Good to hear! So many haters (and I hate that term but sometimes it's applicable) dominating the discussion on this.

I'm not seeing it until Saturday but can't ****ing wait.
