Osgood

*Denotes Olympian, so it's actually eleven, not seven.

Admittedly, some of those players were traded for each other, but that team would probably be more competitive than the team the Islanders are fielding now. The defense and goaltending are exponentially better, and if one assumes a few free agents to plug holes, that team could probably make a few deep runs and even win a Cup. Pretty far cry from what the Islanders have done for the last 20 years...

If you have nothing else to do tonight, Championship games for bother divisions of GNASH high school hockey are tonight at Centennial Sportsplex. At 6:00, FRA/USN (aka my team) takes on MBA for the lower division title, and Ravenwood/Brentwood clash in the big bout at 7:45. Admission is (I believe) free. Should be some good hockey.

Been trying to speak more Arabic to people I come across who I feel (or know) speak the language. Awkward...

Rough. We knew we were the underdogs coming in, but losing 7-2 isn't fun. I didn't play even close to my best, so not a fun way to go out, but hey, I have two state rings. Not bad.

well this is shaping up to be my worst sports fan year in many years...

Murray State chokes away a 7 point lead in the final two minutes to lose the OVC

Kentucky cant even make the NCAA tournament to try to defend their title

And the Preds are ridiculously bad, so bad I cant even watch them any more.

Its awful to think that the Reds are my only hope to salvage a good year of fandom.... but as it is I cant wait for opening day...

the only thing that could make it worse is if Duke or Indiana win the NCAA...

True, lucky for me UK has some good success recently. I was fortuneate enough to be at the sweet 16/elite 8 games AND the final four games last year. I'll never forget that team. I'd still give that up though for a Preds Stanley Cup.

Then the Reds, a probable favorite last year. Go up 2-0 in the best of 5 series. Then get swept, all 3 at home. That pretty much pissed me off for a bit.

That sounds like my 2011-2012. Buckeye football in shambles for the first time in a decade, the Jackets consistently finding exciting new ways to lose plus Carter being an ******* and Nash requesting a trade, and then the Crew being a total mess 'till Higuain showed up - only to finish just outside of the playoffs. Oh, and looming lockout.

Fortunately, the Preds were good that year.

Wanna jump on our bandwagon up here after tomorrow? Realignment makes it more palatable - I'm told that former enemies make the best allies - and we're offering early bird discounts.

I'm good friends with several of my good buddies wives/girlfriends. Can you be just friends with single women? Tough question, I think it can happen but their literally can't be any sexual attraction from either side. For example one of my best friends wife's friend is a really cool girl. I've known her for bout a year now. We always got a long great and we have a lot in common. She's not ugly at all in fact I think most guys would categorize her as decent however she just doesn't do it for me and I don't have any interest in having a relationship or in general having any relations with her.

I would talk to her several times a week because like I said she is cool as hell. However she started acting weird a few months ago and I could see it starting to happen. She was obviously attracted to me and wanted to start spending a lot more time with me. I run for the hills. I stopped talking to her so much of course. I still see her quite often cause we hang in the same social circles. Awkwardness ensues.

So in this case I was not sexually attracted to her but she was to me. She violated the biggest rule of just being friends. Now we are still friends sure but our relationship will never be the same as it was.


Edit: I watched that video you posted after I wrote my post and all I can say is hahaha. When the host of that video asks the girls if they were friends with any guys right now and they start naming off names you have to wonder how many of those guys are in the "friend zone" and don't know it yet or don't want to be there.

Does pulling for a team when they're playing a certain other team (Minnesota) constitute bandwagoning?

You're spot on there. If for some ungodly reason UL-IU end up as the championship game, I might just implode. Really though I'd have to pull for UL that one game only.

Two steps forward, one step back.

Confirmed I have a job in 2 weeks, but unemployment benefits stopped for no reason. Ok. This shall pass.

And now a headhunter is calling me for another job. I feel like a vet FA and everyone in my position is getting hurt.

Sitting in the ATL airport, wondering how any city with an airport this size couldn't support a team.
