How’s Walnut Grove Looking, Ladies?

A2Y interns from Northern Michigan University came upon this goldmine of a conversation minutes ago on Twitter...

@halfpint

Watch any hockey tonight?

@maryingalls

STFU

@halfpint

Gordie Howe shook their goalie's hand.   Gordie. Howe.

@maryingalls

They were supposed to be rebuilding! Fuch.

I think Toews is working his way up to “Patrick Roy”


It’s coming…

That temper tantrum he had in the box is a thing of beauty.

since the dive are in the process of hiring Roy, I may need to change my avatar… the ol’ game 7 sweetness is just so heartwarming though…

can you imagine… you just OWN a huge game, one of the biggest in your life, and Gordie Fuching Howe makes a point to come into the locker room to shake your hand?  what a remarkable living legacy this club has… just unreal

awesome ... and there’s this the 1st two paragraphs of the official NHL web sites story about the game tonight…

( The days of thinking this was a rebuilding year for the Detroit Red Wings are over.

The days of thinking this was going to be an amazing finish to an incredible year for the Chicago Blackhawks—well, those could be numbered.)

The LB has shown me his true character when the shit hit the proverbial fan.

And Dickels?  He reminds me a lot of Darcy Tucker only bigger, but an even bigger meathead.  He’s the guy who’s gonna after the Wings defensemen and try to severely injure them out of commission. And why?  Because he’s just that stupid…like Tucker.

I really liked Towes before this series. He’s doing too much, pushing too hard and not getting enough from his team. There’s too much selfishness. This is on Quennville’s head and mustache. That said, Chicago’s frustrations were like candy last night. Sweet, sweet candy.

Toews is nowhere near Crosby because Crosby is markedly better hockey player. Case in point—look how he dug in and improved his face-offs in game four after getting dominated by Turris in the first three games. Thus far, Toews hasn’t risen to any occasion in this playoff (or last playoff, for that matter). Sharp, Hossa, and the role players won the series against the Wild. Toews and Kane have a lot of improving to do.

and what are they thinking now?  heh.

Just a reminder to everyone.  You can tweet Mr. “Hammer and Nail have no rivalry” at:

@DanMcneil670

Tweet him animations of hammers.  Tweet him pictures of nails.  Tweet him screencaps of the scoreboard.  Tweet him screencaps of the boxscore where little Johnny took 3 minors in a row.

Just don’t ever let him forget.  Ever.

Dude they were LOUDLY hoping it.  On another general hockey message board I caught ALL kinds of grief before the playoffs for suggesting that the Leafs had to make a run this year because it would be so much more difficult next year after realignment, and I got told the Wings were garbage that would miss the playoffs, miss them next year, and were done.


Those same idiots are now lauding and praising the hiring of Roy by the Avs, if that tells you anything about how much they publicly enjoy being wrong over and over again.

Exactly.  I was a little puzzled about the Toes talk.

Chief, I swear to helm that the last thought I had before going to sleep last night was: I wonder if Zach Parise and Ryan Suter are still happy they signed in Minny.

The best part?  We DIDN’T NEED THEM!

The Toes talk makes sense because its relevant. The Ingall Bros. aren’t as they faded into the dirt much like Albert’s football career.

Since they took the Minnesota deal to be “closer to home”, I pictured the Ingalls lying down with their heads in mother’s laps, night shirts on and tears welling up in their bitter eyes as they watch the nights replays before going off to a fitful sleep.

Their mother’s are stroking their curly locks compasionately, telling them ‘don’t worry my dear, there’s always next season”.  But there is no consoling them , because they now know the truth, that the next year in a poorly run organization will never be any different then the year before.  And they are stuck with that reality until their once promising careers come to a disappointing end.

Caught some comments from the Mild fans on the hfboards and they just cannot believe how well the Wings were beating up on the Cawks.  One Mild fan even said to the effect that, “The Hawks proved that we beat ourselves.”

Honestly I dont think Parise or Suter care… at all… thats why they went to Minnesota… you think that organization and fanbase really care… no… there are some players in this league that just want the big contract

I guarantee the fanbase cares. If there is one group of fans who deserve a real franchise but don’t currently have it, it’s the fans in Minnesota.  Pinky doesn’t count.
