They have that entitlement thing going on. Need a swift boot up the wazzoo. I am surprised South Common Walfart isn't 24/7.

Southgate was a gongshow. Parking lot packed to the gills.

What did you get for Christmas?

So what did ya'll get for christmas that was hockey related?

I'm a freak for this stuff every holiday season; this year got Bobby Orr's book, Jenish's The NHL: A centennial history book, Derek Sanderson's book.

Heck even got a garden gnome that has a a jersey and stick.

I also got the new Team Canada Jersey (black) and a Wayne Gretzky Oilers jersey.

Happy Holidays! (Even if it's a bit late)

So far that is hockey themed. Bobby Orr's Book and a pair of Oilers Mittens, but I have a couple gift still coming so who know if there will be anything else or not. Non Oilers, but sports related, I got a Toronto Blue Jays Autographed Frank Thomas statue.

Nice on the Frank Thomas statue. That's pretty wicked.

Bobby's book Im only in the first chapter but it's good. It's awesome to get something from his POV since he's reclusive.

What PS3 games? I got a PS3 in the summer, played the last of us, a bit of ni no kuni and MLB the show.

It's collecting dust sadly. Need some games on that machine.

Dammit! I was going to get the Bobby Orr book for my son, but wasn't sure. He just told me he would have liked it. So hard to get a list of things from him. We did get him the Anchorboy book, so I hope that one is good.

<<<As for the garden gnome.. got one last year..broke it, got another one and a Christmas gnome! Love them.

Call of Duty: Ghosts, Dishonored and WWE 2K14. FPS games are money with friends, Dishonored seems extremely interesting and WWE... Let's just say that I'm not biggest fan of wrestling. Don't know what my brother was thinking.

Got a remote control tank that carries 4 beers (it's the intended use). Watching the game will now be even lazier (and given it is Oilers hockey, more watchable after the 3rd trip). The thing is also amphibious, so if I'm ever watching hockey while in a pool/hot tub, I still get my beers without moving.

The hot and dry is what really separates Lingnan. The recent of their food is decent, but the hot and dry is amazing.

Never mind just read it. And she has some valid points and legit beef, I can definitely see it from her perspective and understand why she was so mad. She is right that they may glorify it but that's only because the story was put on the screen in the first place. I think you have to be pretty stupid not to mention amoral to see this movie and believe that what has happened is in any way cool, normal, okay. It's art and it's a story depicted on the screen. Belfort is/was a ******* salesman that's the bottom line, this movie doesn't change my opinion or anything I've learned. That being said I also don't think this movie is for everyone and I can imagine what hotshot bankers/stockbrokers etc., may think about this movie.
