Re: Outa Here

When you think you have to let everyone know you're carrying, then you shouldn't be. To me, that's just bragging that you have "all this power" and want everyone to know it and be afraid.

Re: First Red Wings Game at LCA - TONS of empty seats!

I went to the game vs the Bruins on Dec. 11th. I made it a point while watching the game to watch the seats. I would say for the most part, the seats were about 75% full overall, throughout late in the 1st period and through the 2nd. By the 3rd period, it was down to around 50% full. But most of the...

Since then, I've bought Wings, Becker, That 70's Show, King Of Queens, and Coach. Thinking of getting Cheers in th...

Re: Jeff Blashill needs to be fired ASAP

Their worst defeat ever was January 2, 1971. They lost to the Leafs in Toronto, 13-0. Game was on tv and I watched it. Back then it was agonizing. It was the beginning of Darkness With Harkenss.

Re: Christma--- er, I mean Holiday.

Nice collection, TT. When my middle son was a teenager he started collecting the beer steins every Christmas. He doesn't get them anymore, has no room for them at his house, but we used to get him the different ones every year. Stroh's, Budweiser, Miller, Coor's. I wonder if they still go up in value.

Re: I also oppose self-driving vehicles

My wife really wants one if and when they are available. But I think they're a lot of years away yet before they're fairly perfected. And, my wife that will probably be after she's dead. And since we're both 70 now, she's probably right.
