Re: Blackhawks playoffs 2016: The games finally mean something

I just want all teams that chant Crawford to lose miserably because they chant Crawford at hockey games. And then I want the Blackhawks to announce that they didn't plan on winning until the opposing team fans started chanting Crawford. "That is when we mustered the inspiration to beat the othe...

Not quite understanding the reference, but nah, I took Roseanne to a San Diego Padres game. She sang the National anthem that year.

Re: Music Thread 2.0

I got Facebook messaged yesterday by an old girlfriend that thanked me for taking her to see Purple Rain when it was in the theater in the '80's. LOL. I guess I kinda remember going to the theater to see it, but there is no way I would have remembered who I took to see it. She asked if I remembered,...

Re: Single Game Tickets (Pre-sale info page 2, after the silliness)

Yes, 415-425 are the best seats in the park, take advantage of the poles that block low level suckers and enable the low upper deck. SeatGeek has 2 seats in 417 for $81 each, you might be able to do better as the game approaches but I don't have a good feel for how the ticket market will be with th...

Re: Blackhawks playoffs 2016: The games finally mean something

I'm impressed that Chicago caught the offsides at all. It took way longer for the officials to determine it was offsides than it took for someone on the Hawks to see it. On top of that, the offside really had no impact on how the Blues scored that goal, but hey, rules are rules. And the Shaw goal w...

True. But there isn't a whole lot better than Kawasaki getting into a game because the Cubs are winning by double digits.

Even if they lose it'll be like, meh,3 cups and the Cubs are awesome. exactly, i'm almost so low stressed about these playoffs that I feel guilty about it.

So from 1999-2004, I lived in New Hampshire. The area code in New Hampshire is 603. I got my first cell phone during this time period and have kept the number since mostly because I don't feel like giving everyone in my phone a new number and trusting that they will add it to their phones.

Alright, so I've decided to get a couple of tickets to the 7-5 game at Wrigley. Hendricks is throwing a no hitter that day, so I want to be there and see it in person. At this late juncture, what are my best options for good priced tickets and what are the best seats for the money? I'm seeing $80 fo...

Re: My Dog is Getting Old

You never mentioned anything about having the dogs anal glands expressed. I'm sure your vet has done this for your dog, but many dogs have problems with crapping because the anal glands are blocked or infected. This may or may not help with the diarrhea problem, but I would hope it would help with t...

I like that he's working with Neal Schon and Greg Rolie once again, but I'm not sure what that sentence means, either.

Journey just wasn't as good when Greg Rolie left the band.

especially since schwarber was probably like our 5th best regular and, while the replacements aren't great (or him), he's not being replaced by like jason dubois or bobby scales or something either. I'm lower on him than most, but I think you could make a case for 8th. He is definitely behind Rizzo...
