I remember reading on the main board that the Hurricanes were doing a few things for the first few home games so I was wondering if anyone could let me know what that might be (and if the Buffalo game would be too late). Worse case I go alone but its always better to go with someone (plus they are driving so I'd rather not have to taxi).

Thanks in advance.

I will also be cheering on the Hurricanes as hard as I can for that game because I hate everything Buffalo.
Merchandise in the team store is 50% off. As far as I know thats about it.

It's way better than that...Ratliff is the starting nosetackle, and Josh Brent was his backup.

Sigh.....can't make this stuff up. It's tough being a Cowboys fan.

Wow, I remember spilling god knows how many quarters into NBA Jam back in the day. I actually feel sad for kids these days never knowing what a true arcade was.

The fire alarm goes off at 3AM, and it's determined to be nothing serious. Now I can't fall back asleep.**** you, fire alarm.

Speaking of annoying fire alarms, a week ago my dorm had a fire drill at around 6:00 pm. It was one of those extremely cold days too. So, most people come down. Except, one girl decides it's a great idea to come out on the balcony. The bad thing about this is that the fire marshal spots her and tells her to come down. After screaming, and I quote, "This is ********", she walks back into her room and slams the door. While the fire marshal goes up to knock on her door, the girl sneaks out and makes her way outside. Finally, the fire marshal informs us that because the drill took too long(15 mins), this evening fire drill will have to be done sometime in the future around 3am. Thanks random girl!

I wish I had just one of those quarters back for every terrific meltdown I witnessed one of my friends have when he had a cold NBA Jam hand that day.

We had a fire alarm once. At 3am. No time to find clothes. It was cold outside. -15°F. False alarm.

Haha nope, unfortunately I didn't, although I'm fascinated by them. I love me some arcade Tekken though...

Meh, I mean that looks REALLY bad, but in Hazard's defense that ball boy was simply not getting him the ball. I mean he just laid down on it for 5 whole seconds. Blatant time wasting on his part.

Both in the wrong imo., Hazard needs to either get another ball or just make sure the ref adds extra time due to the wasting. Kicking out at the ball while it's under the kid was just dumb. As for the kid he was acting like an idiot, such blatant time wasting.

Supposedly the kid tweeted before the game something along the lines of:

"The king of all ball boys is back. Needed for time wasting."

So there's that...

I'm living in (near) Seattle and looking forward to maybe getting an NHL team. Talked with James Mirtle on Twitter about it the other day, and he compared it to Raleigh. Curious as to how valid some NC natives think that comparison is. There are obviously some key differences:
  • Hockey participation in WA is higher than NC, but not by much
  • Seattle is bigger, but Raleigh probably has closer 'other' large population centers
  • Similar tech company influences.
  • Relatively high income areas nearby
  • The Hurricanes obviously have less pro-sports competition
  • But probably more college sports competition
  • Seattle is set up with a nearby rival (Vancouver), I don't know that the Canes have a rival even now (Maybe the Capitals?)

Still, Hazard's gotta know you can't kick him. Should be a 5 game ban at least and Swansea should be fined.

I've been to quite a few CHL Rapid City Rush games while visiting family and friends, but unfortunately I did not get to see the "College Olympics" intermission contest and the subsequent on-ice vomiting.

Quote:
But Stevie Masen, a Rush season ticket holder and host at Classic Rock 100.3 the FOX, had a different perspective and used the situation as a teachable moment for her 7-year-old son.

"We told him that is why only grown-ups can drink alcohol, because you have to be smart about it," said Masen. "Hopefully in 10 years when he goes to college, he will remember that."
I lol'd at that one.
