If adolfo ran across a smart female fan, or a smart drunken male fan, they would throw away the audio - not funny. Stupid is funny.

They then started talking rather loudly about some guy named 'Patriss' (rhymes with Katniss) 'Burgerin'.
I think they were talking about Patrice Bergeron, only they totally butchered his name.
They talked really loudly for what seemed like a lifetime about his 'epic slap shot' and 'awesome injuries'-injuries are never awesome, I think they meant how it was awesome it was that he played through them (still agonising for him).
Then they started talking about 'Tucker Rask', 'Brad Marchind' (that's March as in the month) and how much it sucked to have traded away 'Tyler Segwin' for 'Jarome Ignila' (false, we traded him for Eriksson and others). They then left, giving me a good laugh.

Stupid people will be stupid people.
What's more amazing is this is probably all they ever talk about, all day.

I guess I should just probably be thankful they likely don't vote.

Back during the AHL playoffs, some guys from the Paul and Al show (they are the Providence version of T&R except they've been around a lot longer, play music and are seriously as UNFUNNY as you will ever find in a morning zoo crew) approached me in the Dunk and started feeling me out as to my hockey knowledge for a dumb fan bit. I shut them down pretty quickly. They were telling me they invented the bit or some such thing when I said T&R did it....but ya, I don't know why they thought I was a mark, I wasn't even tipsy yet.

Still don't-though I would like to see the Nordiques back as I liked them as a very young kid.
Does that not make me a true hockey fan?

EDIT: Ignore this, it's a bit of an overreaction. Sorry.
You guys didn't know Ricci no longer played in the NHL?

Again, pretty funny to see Toucher and Rich making fun of people for their lack of hockey knowledge when they themselves didn't realize a guy who stopped playing in 07 no longer played in the NHL.

Perhaps it's just me, but I find it pretty comical to see people who don't know their **** accuse other people of not knowing their ****. It's kinda like the dimwits on here who accuse people of having bad grammar while butchering their own post in the process.

No doubt they "interview" several people to get one really dumb one.

Oh I get it, I didn't think you were doing that at all.

Maybe wasn't the appropriate place for the discussion, but it's an interesting one to me and a question I get asked a lot. As a female fan, how do I feel about other women who watch because they think the players are hot, or their boyfriend wants them to.

I didn't know who Ricci even was.
But if you don't know, you learn and when you learn, you know! I chose to find out who he was rather than let myself remain ignorant. So now I know who he is and if Adolfo ever comes up to me and says 'we traded (insert 'hot' Bruin player here) for this guy' I can say back 'yo, that's Mike Ricci and after playing with the Coyotes and their AHL affiliate for two seasons from 05-07, he doesn't play in the NHL any more.'

If you go to Worcester Sharks games, don't be surprised to see Mike walking around the DCU Center. I've seen him at the Dunk once, too.

I think he now works for the Worcester Sharks evaluating prospects or something like that-but don't quote me on that.

I remember back in the 00's that people (not me, oh no, not me) used to get Mark Recchi, Mike Ricci, and Joe Reeki confused.

Saying their last names was like conjugating a verb in latin.

The lasting message of all this is that Ricci is in fact, still ugly.

Why would I want to be one of those fans-they're the most annoying people to ever walk god's green earth!
i think my crush on bergy and marchy would exist even if the unthinkable happened and the didnt play for us.

I did, and there was no confirmation of anything, just repetition of the same baseless rumors that are already out there.

Me thinks you're too eager to paint a negative picture you'll glom onto anything and call it proof or confirmation. This is the social media age where everyone has access to social media, don't mistake repetition for proof of accuracy.

I have never listened to this duo and I`m thankful. I most often listen to the fan590 out of Toronto, sure there`s plenty of Leaf tire pumpin, but I also find them to be pretty critical when warranted. Thankfully, one thing they don`t do, is turn their shows into Enquirer style stuff

lol, you didn't hear the girls talking about how they worked in the industry, and how Seguin was "always out partying"

Seriously? These are randoms walked up to in a public location, who had no idea Segs had even been traded. That's about as much of a confirmation as you need man. What more do you want? When female bar staff flat out tell you he's the big team partier, then maybe you better start accepting the truth...

Ah yes, anonymous girl on Toucher and Rich saying he's her favourite because she's partied with him and he's always out in the "industry" is your idea of confirmation....

Yet same anonymous girls has no idea Seguin was even traded, and for some reason thinks Dallas is a football "state".

If that's all the proof you needed, there was a poster in the "Reaction to Seguin/Eriksson trade?" who knows a bartender who saw Seguin out in the bars all the time "brawlin"... Tyler Seguin the brawler even. This type of information being regurgitated by people as "proof" and/or "confirmation" is the problem.

See earlier post about wanting to believe the negative too badly.
