This one is going to be a tribute to some of our legends of the past. Hopefully it works as expected.

As much fun as replacing Burke would be, I'd instantly become hated in Calgary by signing Babchuk to a ridiculous deal, make him the new captain and respond to the criticism with "Deal with it, it's happening".

I've said the joke before, but I was in Phi Mu Alpha, same fraternity that Feaster was in, so I'm at the very least just as qualified as he was. Plus I've actually read the CBA before so pretty sure that trumps him.

Being in a fraternity means he has a post secondary education.

Based on his body of work, I'm not sure he even finished high school.

Not necessarily - there was a sorority in my high school (an informal, unsanctioned one, but they handed out bids, partied, hazed, etc. nonetheless)

Justhereforthefights has authorized me to ask that she be given 1/19 against Tampa Bay. We've finally succeeded in wearing her down, gents.

I'll also take 1/24 against the Sens for myself.

I'm going to need a notorized form stating that she does indeed intend to fulfill the obligations involved in creating said GDT...

On second thought, scratch that idea. She'd probably cancel. I'll just add you both.


So how about thinkingcake? Think she'd be willing to do one?

Thinkingcake doesn't live with someone who can wear her down until she gives in.....

On the other hand, garnetpalmetto did bring me cupcakes tonight. He knows what's good for him.

Am I bumping the GDT I already did when 2//25 rolls around, or making a new one?

It's up to you. I left it as it's currently marked in the table in the event that you do want to bump it. I don't really have a preference either way.

EDIT: Wow, I ask Dave if he's around to post his GDT the exact minute he posts his GDT. I must be a wizard.

Was working on some ideas in the middle of teaching a class. They're doing a few skills lab things now so I got the chance to put up a placeholder.

With the announcement that the Ottawa game is on Saturday I face a predicament. I had signed up for it when it was on Friday, but I'm leaving on Saturday for a cruise. My options are:

1) Put GDT up on Friday instead, ignoring the bad juju that has sprung from putting them up a day early.

2) Trading dates with somebody else

3) Creating the thread and getting Thinkingcake to actually post it for me on Saturday since she's housesitting for us.

Which of those options is most agreeable to you, HG?

I'd go ahead and put it up on Friday. This team will win or lose regardless of when you put it up. Or how much effort is put into it

Well, option 3 means she'd get the result rather than you, as I go by whichever poster actually posts the GDT.

If you're okay with that, I'd prefer option 3. If you want the loss, go ahead and do option 1. Option 2 would be my last choice.

DaveG had a gritty second-half effort tonight with his GDT win. I hereby nominate his perfect record to potentially be tarnished with at least one more GDT attempt in the near future.



Also, other volunteers please. We're getting close to the end of this stretch of games with GDT volunteers. I'd like to fill up until the Olympic break if possible.

I already gave you one! But if nobody else takes them, I guess I'll throw them your way.

tempted to take one but want to wait and see how the Jackets game turns out, if it's a win I'm down for trying my luck. Whatever works.
