i'm about as against the grain as anyone here. everyone is so conservative in their support of the jackets. people really need to know that its ok to have posts that just consist of:
GO BLUE JACKETS! ROCK EVERYONE AND THEN SOME!
showing support like this is just as, if not more, key than discussing the team. teams win because they have heart. discussing which players need to go instead of cheering belligerently really disenheartens a franchise.
anyways, i'm glad i uncovered these lurkers. come on guys. out of the closet already. support the jackets loud and proud. come out and post about whatever. i mean hell. i didn't know anything about the jackets when i got on here except that they sucked for a couple seasons and they used to be an easy 2 points. but posting got me to be where i am today....knowing that the jackets are going to win the cup next year along with the presidents trophy.

Am I expected to remember all this for said party? Eek.
Ahhhh...c'mon..your an OSU grad..you couldn't have drank all of those brain cells away
Plus..Kallio will probably sleep though it..
FCR will have a gig pop up...
Foley...I dunno..what will your excuse be...attending GMDM's private party?
O-cat...he'll accidentaly get to drunk at home and won't be able to drive to the deal...
Sooo...at the end of the day you'll just have to remember a couple of folks. Darrmd since his wife owns the joint...DKB b/c I think after we finally got him out last time I think he realized we are all pretty normal dudes and he fell in love w/ the 'stingers' and myself b/c with planning time this far in advance there is no way I'll miss this bad boy unless a meteor hits my house.
actually i think I feel in love with darrmd's wife
seriously though, my only catch is having to trick a 8 month pregnant woman into believing that me going to a bar on a saturday night is a good thing. Shouldnt be to hard, I ve tricked her before (see pregnency)
