Hey Blitz, I know you have the Preds where you want them...but I'm seeing a gal who has a nephew named Austin Thornton in Lord Stanleys extravigangas.. Good luck to you but my alliance has changed  grin1

My best to Burghy as always

Howdy Husker!

Don't know of an Austin Thornton, do you mean Austin Watson?  Ah yes, must be he was born in Ann Arbor.  That's cool to have that connection!  Looks like a good young player from what I've seen..they are using him more on the checking line but he looks to have some offensive upside.

Taking the first two was nice, but we just held serve.  As they say, the series hasn't started until the home team loses.  I'd love to wrench the pressure and take Game 3 in Nashville, but it will be the Preds' best game.  Pens need to match that intensity.
Don't give up.  Don't ever give up.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.

Ya know who else hails from Ann Arbor?  One of my favorite Penguins, Ian Cole..that's right I'm a Cole miner!  Our shot blocking, penalty killing, blue collar defenseman.

And I especially like the fact that even though he is from AA, he did not go to Michigan for college.  He went to Notre Dame..hahaha.

Speaking of age...............................................................



R Rat  was at the vet  for his annual checkup. While he was there he had another minor issue he thought he'd ask about.

Rat said "Doc, the wrinkles on my face make it kinda hard to get a good shave. Do you have any suggestions?"

Doc replied, "Sure, take this ball and put it in your mouth and roll it around where you shave."

Rat asked, "What happens if I swallow it?"

Doc said, "Well, just bring it back in a couple days like everyone else does!"     grin1

Thanks, it's tomorrow!

Fog decided to streamline things a bit so there was more content on each board.  As for LNU, Skydog chose to leave the site and deleted it.

Hey Blitz! BTR!

Blitz, how's things going at the new homestead?  Ready for winter? Been below zero here already and I'm pretty sure you must've had the same dose too.

Time sure flies!

Hey Guys :)

Love that Jimmy Valvano quote Blitz...

Yeah time sure does fly Bond ..we were cold for our area in early November even had a snowfall. (only a half inch but snow is almost unheard of here that early)

It actually hasn't been that bad here yet Bond!  We dropped into the teens one night.  Aside from that, been mostly highs in the 40/50s and lows in the 20/30s.  It is 65 degrees right now..

But, from what I remember last year in December it struck with a vengeance.  We are ready for sure.  On the really cold nights I use one of those electric dipstick inserts that keep the engine oil warm through the night.

I love that quote too BTR.  A real great life lesson.

Blitz, nothing more than I'd like to see is Bucky beating your Buckeyes but that running QB is a back breaker and I just don't see it happening...............but? Never give up! If Hornibrook plays his best game, then lookout!

That should be a great game Bond..we'll see what happens.  One thing for sure it will NOT be 59-0 like in 2014..lol

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thanksgiving Showdown about to drop the puck on NBC..Penguins at Bruins.  Murray and Khudobin in net.  Bs will continue to ride the hot hand in goal until he levels off.
