That's frightening lol.

People forget (or don't know) that Chuck Norris wasn't just a movie badass. Dude is like the only non Asian born person in the world to become a Tae Kwon Do Grand Master, was an undefeated Karate champion, and invented his own martial art. He's legit

I'm just stating that what cosby did is not a big deal and happens all the time. People are just searching for reasons to hate on him. I'm tired of *****ing about talented players. I'm not a Crosby fan, but I don't bash players for self gratification.

That's very good news. Hopefully he isn't trying to come back too soon because of how much we ****ing suck and can't put together a ****ing performance that ****** team from a friggin Hollydell league could be remotely proud of.

He sure is, he even had his own cartoon at one point:






Great to hear to hear Downie is improving. Here's an update posted on the Flyers main site:

So, he spent two nights in the hospital with a "severe" concussion, then three days later he's day to day? WTF? What could be wrong here?

Sporting a massive shiner under his left eye from his fight with Washington’s Aaron Volpatti on Friday, Flyers winger Steve Downie said he is making progress and will return to the lineup soon.

Downie suffered a concussion in that 7-0 loss and has been experiencing some sinus problems from the fight. He will not play Thursday night against visiting New Jersey, but Saturday afternoon’s game against Edmonton is a possibility.

Officially, he is listed as day to day.

Quote:
Downie won’t be back in the lineup against the Devils but said he’s “healing well,” and “should be back soon,” despite the bruising around his eye and the fact that the eye itself remains bloody.

“My vision’s good,” he said. “The doctor did a good job checking out my eye making sure everything went well. It’s going really well.”

Downie, however, is struggling with sinus issues. It's noticeable even just hearing him speak.

“That’s the issues that I’m having, the sinuses,” he said. “So I’m just waiting for that to clear up and start breathing again. Mainly sinuses right now.”

Downie has played just 10:24 in his second stint as a Flyer before he was injured, and was brought in to join Claude Giroux and Vinny Lecavalier on the top line -- at least to start. With him out, head coach Craig Berube continues to shuffle up the team's lines, but said he's encouraged to see the feisty forward back on the ice already, just six days after the scary fight.

“It’s good to see Downs skating already,” coach Craig Berube said. “Hoping he’ll be back soon.”

“He’s tough,” the coach added with a smile.

I hated all his movies, he was not an undefeated Karate champion, I hated his style, and my friend has invented his own Martial Art and doubt Norris could beat him.

I'm thinking Downie didn't realize Volpatti was left handed, and that's why he got caught like he did. It was the first real punch Volpatti threw in the fight, and Downie had his headed tilted like he usually does to avoid rights. Historically, he's done a pretty good job at not eating a ton of punches despite his size (minus the Coburn fight). In his interview today, he talks about making a mistake in the fight but doesn't go into detail, but I'm guessing the mistake was not realizing Volpatti was left handed.

I think you have some deep rooted issues dude.

Did Chuck Norris wink at your mom and get her pregnant?

I'm guessing he went to the hospital because he couldn't breath due to the sinuses, not because of a severe concussion.

Hopefully Downie is fully healthy for the game against Pittsburgh. That's a game he could thrive in.

Van Damme is 10x better than Norris. Hope Downie is 100%, I would hate to have him in when he isn't and have him get injured again.
