Re: hmmm - 11/23/03 09:36 PM

Shutup !!!!!!!!!!

I wondered how long it would take you.
This is sooooooo bad. I wonder if Roger Nelson did more of the coaching than we realize and now he's not there. What do you think ?

Maggie
(feeling sheepish)

Re: hmmm - 11/24/03 08:44 PM

I really do hate to gloat!

Sorry about this Maggie....hahahaahahaha

Re: hmmm - 11/24/03 09:50 PM

If Stanley is calling the LEAFS he must have been given the wrong Number or he is calling to say Nice Try and see you in Ottawa.

Re: hmmm - 01/03/04 10:00 AM

If we win the cup....our bandwagon would be so long it would stretch all the way to Ottawa. It's amazing how many people are all of a sudden Leaf fans here!


Paul

Just keep watching the SENS hockey - at the end of the season, you will see them holding the Stanley Cup high in the air

I'd love to be at the next Sens / leaf game in Ottawa - only the really expensive tickets available - and that was before Christmas. Stupid leafs even have fans here in Ottawa - I just don't understand it

We'll beat you in the playoffs - I feel sure about it

Leafs? Sens?

If any of you Ontario folks want to see what the Cup looks like, just c'mon across the river and we can show you three of them here in Hockeytown!

Flyers?

I think we floated that boat a few years ago. Didn't a 4-0 sweep teach you guys anything?

I consider a good year in hockey any year that the Wings do not win the Cup (then I do not have to listen to my uncle all year).

Goalie down here goes for the record tonight in Minnesota for shutouts.

Hey Maggie

Did you ever notice that the Leafs always choke around the middle of January and Look it's almost that time. I really feel bad for the fan like Paul and Doug that have to go through this every year. You know they always start planning the big Party and then out of nowhere they get a look at Ottawa kicking AS* and moving up as they go Down.

John

Re: Ready to brave the cold? - 01/11/04 03:22 PM

Hi Tim,

I would imagine that it gets old listening to your uncle......I would still like to see the Wings do well this season.

Are you ready to brave the cold? Have you gone back home yet to visit? Here in Michigan it has been colder than....MN is even colder.

Take care,
Cara



Posted by: Dotyisle

Re: Ready to brave the cold? - 01/11/04 07:16 PM

Hi Cara,

Yes it does get old since the Wings have a good organization

Have not had to brave cold yet... waiting for job interview at the Home Office in Green Bay and will take a few more vacation days with that trip to visit relatives up in Wisconsin. Today was absolutely beautiful here in AZ.... sunny and mid/high 70's.

Take care,

Hey Maggie,

Kendra's first x-mas was a blast, and between her grandmother and 2 doting aunt's, she got spoiled BIG time. They actually collaborated so as not to duplicate her gifts! Sheesh......... But Kendra is doing spectacular, she is 3 days shy of 8 months old and has six teeth already! Life is grand right now, and the only way it can get any better, is when the Leafs win the Cup!!!


Go Leafs Go!!!

Good to see you around here again sorry to hear you took a spill. Just remember you can always come up to OTTAWA to see the CUP here since that is where it is going to be for the next year or more. I know by now all you Leaf fans should be used to NOT getting the CUP but aleast they still allow Leaf fans in to see it.

Hey John,

the spill was nothing, at least this time!

We do get to "see" the cup more than anywhere else, since it does reside in the centre of the hockey universe here at the hockey hall of fame!

And hey, just when is the last time the cup was in Ottawa? Huh?????

Cara,

Got some good and bad news for you....

The NHL in conjunction with the US Postal Service issued some new postage stamps in the US. The first stamp issued was for the Detroit Red Wings with the picture or a Red Wing skating across the ice.

But I have some bad news, the stamps are being recalled....

Everyone wants to spit on the Red Wing Player rather than the back rendering the stamps useless.



I could not help myself Cara

Re: hmmm - 01/25/04 01:21 PM

Cara,

The Big Bad Red Wings came to town last night, awaiting them were the humble Coyotes and a hot goal tender.

Coyotes 5 (only 14 shots on goal)
Red Wings 2 (46 shots on goal)

Dare I say it.... Spank, Spank, Spank, Spank

Doug.... I see why the Red Wing fans may be spitting on the stamp if it is CuJo. Actually I like CuJo since he played college pucks at Wisconsin (ditto Chelios). I have my loyalties to the Wisconsin Badgers despite the fact they play for the Red Wings.

Could have used a few of the Badger chants for CuJo last night....

Scene.... arena full of Badger fans mostly clad in red, a college band playing, a thousand whipped up college students and 4-5 thousand more adults.... a question is posed from the student section about the opposing goalie after giving up his 4th goal....

Is the Goalie a vacuum?

An answer from the entire crowd....

No, he is not a vacuum!

A second question is posed from the student section....

Is he a black hole?

An answer from the entire crowd....

No, he is not a black hole!

Chorus from all....

He just Sucks, He just Sucks, He just Sucks!!!

Ahhhh... college pucks, I miss it.

I'm with you on this Peni only I beat you as I haven't been to a hockey game since I was a teen and on a date with my first b/f. He took me to this local game, when then teeth started flying and the blood started flowing and players were piled high and sticks were coming in contact with skulls he turns to me all excited and says. "isn't this great?"
Needless to say, THAT relationship didn't last long.

Ok,I will admit to watching one hockey game all the way through and that was the 1980 Olympics "Miracle on Ice" game. I do love the Olympics!

But hockey and football, hmm, well, just can't seem to figure out that male bonding thing

This thread started on 11/23/03 when Paul threw down the gaunlet... Maggie answered it on 11/24/03 and so began history.

There have been 14 participants in this thread and fans of the Sens, Leafs, Flyers, Kings, Red Wings and Coyotes... and even had some Pats fans crash the party (note... whenever there is a party, you can expect someone from the Live Free or Die state to show up).

Top posters:
Maggie 64
Paul 52
(both would have Active Member status alone with this thread)
Doug 28
John 13

Of particular interest is the fact that the Leaf fans as of now have a 3 post advantage in this thread... the Leafs also have a 3 point lead vs Sens in the standings. Is that ironic or what???

Being a sports fan can rub off on one.You need to watch a few hockey games. They are fun to watch! In the Detroit area we all take hockey seriously, after all Detroit is Hockeytown.

Thanks for explaning Sens Tim but I'm more confused now. Sports and politics, hmm Wait a minute, I think I get it!

Team names must be manly, intimidating, frightening...

Sort of like our (now disbanded) singing senators down here in the states? Trent ‘Vacant’ Lott, James ‘The Traitor’ Jeffords, Larry ‘Whozat’ Craig, and John ‘Johnny Law’ Ashcroft.

Yep,
223 (I mean 224 ) is certainly, easily, the winning thread.

Yes, it figures that it'd be an off-topic thread that got the most hits ... 'cos people tend to disagree less when the subject is AS itself .... well, except where starch theory is concerned that is!

This is really why I made a sports forum, so this stuff can go on without annoying those who come looking for help on AS. Just a place to hang and have fun.

Hey Maggie,

considering your hearty cheering and all, if the SENSationals win the cup...do you get to take it home for a night ?
that's the tradition,right ? Put it up next to the silver service and have friends over to gawk.
bet that would set your heart a pumping...you trashtalking hockey fans are nuts.

That's a good idea Ben but I'm lacking in the silver service area to put it with

I actually never was a hockey fan until the Sens returned to Ottawa. It has been very exciting to support them.
On line is even more fun 'cause then I don't have to actually go face to face with any whining leaf fans

( that's wHining - NOT winning )

There is now going to be 7 second delay on CBC's Coaches' Corner

Posted by: tinynic

Re: hmmm - 02/09/04 11:24 AM

Sorry to jump in like this, but as a Leaf fan and having in-laws living in the Ottawa area, I couldn't resist. My sis-in-law gets her three girls to call me after the Sens beat the Leafs, and instead of saying hi, all I hear is the whole family laughing. Then the father-in-law and mother-in-law call to make sure I know the Sens won. So I'll say here what I say to them: "Come talk to me in April after we put the Sens out again."
As for Cherry, I am really ticked off about this. He has been saying for years that Europeans are the only players who wear visors. He's been on Ulf Samuelson, Yashin, Hossa, Alfredsson.... saying they don't care about NHL hockey or the Stanley Cup and they disappear in the playoffs. That they grow up dreaming about winning the World Cup. That Europeans are not tough enough to play in the NHL palyoffs, and on and on. No one said anything then. But bring the French Canadian into it and suddenly they are talking about it on Parliment Hill. The Language Police are all in an uprage. Give me a break. Cherry has always spoken from the hip. He has always been pro Canadian, and the CBC knew what they were going to get every Saturday night. The topics are pre-planned and the CBC could easily have prevented this by going over the discussion BEFORE the show. The CBC doesn't have the guts to fire Don and are hoping he will quit because the backlash would be huge. (Remember Ron's contract talk?) Cherry is Cherry. If the CBC didn't want everyone to know that it is run by those at Parliment Hill, then it is now too late.
That aside, Alfredsson is a free agent after this season, and as much as I might hate saying this, maybe Quinn was seeing how Alfredsson would look with Sundin and Roberts. (YAK!) Just an idea.

No one said life would be easy, just worth it.

That would be the last straw. Many Sens fans would go into a deep depression, me included.
What on earth would the leaf fans do - they all boo him all the time now.
I love Alfredson - he is a cheeky so and so.

I agree, the Don Cherry thing is nuts. (Not that I'm that keen on him myself - it is obvious that he isn't a Sens fan)

That's cute - what your family do after a Sens win

Re: hmmm - 02/13/04 01:35 PM

What do we do after a Sens win? We don't answer the phone! That's why they leave a message. As for myself, I go into a deep spiraling depression. As I hit bottom I just remind myself that the Leafs put them out four straight in the playoffs. i think it has turned into a great rivalry. I look forward to a Leaf/Sens match up even if the Sens do usually come out on top during the regular season. (Except for that five goal come back by the Leafs the other night. I love what Nolan said after, "Boo hoo!) I'm sure it was as good as a cup win for the Sens when they beat us with half our regular line up gone to injuries. Alas, poor Sens fans, all is not lost, the Sens still might finish first overall. They have been playing some pretty good hockey lately. Too bad Hasek and Joseph went down with an injury, rumour has it Joseph was a sneeze away from becoming a Sen. As good as Lalime is, I don't think he can take the Sens to the promised land.

Re: hmmm - 02/15/04 09:15 PM

The Stanley Cup

It all started on March 18, 1892, at a dinner of the Ottawa Amateur Athletic Association. Lord Kilcoursie, a player on the Ottawa Rebels hockey club from Government House, delivered the following message on behalf of Lord Stanley, the Earl of Preston and Governor General of Canada:
"I have for some time been thinking that it would be a good thing if there were a challenge cup which should be held from year to year by the champion hockey team in the Dominion (of Canada).
"There does not appear to be any such outward sign of a championship at present, and considering the general interest which matches now elicit, and the importance of having the game played fairly and under rules generally recognized, I am willing to give a cup which shall be held from year to year by the winning team."

The Stanley Cup was originally known as the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup
Shortly thereafter, Lord Stanley purchased a silver cup measuring 7 ˝ inches high by 11 ˝ inches across for the sum of 10 guineas (approximately $50); appointed two Ottawa gentlemen, Sheriff John Sweetland and Philip D. Ross, as trustees of that cup; and set the following preliminary conditions to govern the annual competition:
• The winners to return the Cup in good order when required by the trustees in order that it may be handed over to any other team which may win it.
• Each winning team to have the club name and year engraved on a silver ring fitted on the Cup.
• The Cup to remain a challenge competition and not the property of any one team, even if won more than once.
• The trustees to maintain absolute authority in all situations or disputes over the winner of the Cup.
• A substitute trustee to be named in the event that one of the existing trustees drops out.
The first winner of the Stanley Cup was the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association (AAA) hockey club, champions of the Amateur Hockey Association of Canada for 1893. Ironically, Lord Stanley never witnessed a championship game nor attended a presentation of his trophy, having returned to his native England in the midst of the 1893 season. Nevertheless, the quest for his trophy has become one of the world's most prestigious sporting competitions.


The Stanley Cup was originally known as the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup.

I thought I might share that information with the Sens fans because even though we haven't won it since 1967, (gasp), Ottawa hasnt' won it since 1927!! Now don't go into the whole thing about there not being a team there, we can all come up with excuses. Remember Ballard? We're still trying to recover from him and Cliff Fletcher. Ballard would get rid of anyone who was either bit decent because they would want a raise in pay, and Fletcher gave up the farm for aging veterans hoping to take it all. Oh well, we are having a pretty decent year and I'm going to enjoy it in case there isn't any NHL hockey for a while after this season.

Re: hmmm - 02/16/04 08:14 AM

As it was, I believe Montreal never really played a series to win it the first year the cup was given out. The team they were supposed to play couldn't make it and the cup was just handed to Montreal. I'll ask you what I ask all the other Habs fans, has the Stanley Cup not been won by another team since '93? It doesn't matter how long it's been since it was last won by either team, the question is who has the best chance of winning it this year? I'll give you a clue, it's not Montreal.

Re: hmmm - 02/16/04 09:43 AM

Pittsburgh? Um, Chicago? It can't be Ottawa because they'll have to beat Colorado or Vancouver IF, and that is a huge if, they make it to the finals. There are a lot of teams out there who are one or two players away from being serious contenders, and that's what worries me. If teams stayed the way they are now I'd say Toronto and Ottawa have a legit chance, but a trade or two could knock us both out or make us the teams to beat. We'll know after the trade deadline passes. I'm alway so nervous this time of year.

Re: hmmm - 02/17/04 11:40 AM

I agree. I think the best thing Montreal has done is hire Gainey. If anyone can get Montreal over the top it's him. You have a lot of great young players, something we here in Leafland wish we had, and when Theodore finds his confidence again he'll be the great goalie he should be. Montreal is really coming on and if they make the playoffs could be a surprise. I hope they do make the playoffs, the more Canadian teams we can get in there the better chance we have of bringing the cup home. Right here in Canada.

Re: hmmm - 02/21/04 12:07 PM

Let's see, if the playoffs were to start today Ottawa would be in 4th place, meaning a match up with Boston, Toronto would be first playing the Islanders. So far Ottawa is 3-1-1 VS Boston, and the Leafs are 1-2-0 VS the Islanders.(yeah, I have too much time on my hands) Boston is playing much better and I think goaltending would be the difference in that series. What does that mean? Toronto won't get the chance to meet Ottawa and beat them four straight again after we put the Islanders out of their misery. I realize there are lots of people who are Leaf fan haters, but I look at it this way, the laws of average are on our side. It's been 37 years since we last won the cup, it has to happen again, sooner rather than later.

We play you two more times before the season ends. Should all else remain equal, that'll put us three points up. (we'll win those games ) Of course when we get Belfour back we all know which team will win more games, T.O. I'm lovin' it. This is the first time in years when games this far into the season could have a treamendous impact on the standings. There are only five points between first and sixth. Either of those teams go for a bit of a tumble and they could finish sixth or eighth, maybe out all together. This is what it's all about.

One word, "goaltending". If it comes down to Belfour and Lalime, Belfour wins. But alas, regular season means nothing if you cant' win in the playoffs. The Sens may finish on top but they always fall down. Montreal still has to make it to the playoffs. With the standings so close anyone is a slump away from finishing out of the playoffs, or a streak away from finishing first. There's only five weeks left so hang on.

I know !!!!!!!!!! they are awesome !!!!!!!!! Still in first place !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Doug/Paul,

Leetch is quality player... may give the Leafs the edge to hold on in the division. Now if you only toss Domi... I can not stand the guy and I see he has been up to his old tricks lately.

I imagine he is fan favorite up in Toronto.

Tim

p.s. - Heard it was in the 60's up in Toronto. Volunteer at Performing Arts Center down here and the Nylons were here performing. Some of performers are from your fair city and they brough up that fact of the record high during the performance.

Yep all the leaf fans love Domi - BIG TIME.

Unfortunatly I think that is what all the fighting the Sens are now doing, is all about. It seems that they have decided they need to play rougher just like Philly and Toronto.
We'll see how it goes, I guess.

We stand a good chance anyway - Stanley just might be ours
We're all going to be glued to our TV's for the playoffs.

Re: hmmm - 03/09/04 03:11 AM

The habs have been playing really well lately (from what I've read) and when Kovalev gets back I think nothing will stop us. I think the habs have a real chance in the playoffs this year, we have the goaltending, the defence and the scoring. The only thing we are lacking is size, but if the team is winning who cares how big you are!!!!

Go Habs!!!!!

Posted by: tinynic

Re: hmmm - 03/11/04 01:35 PM

Tie Domi is a favourite, and not just because of his fighting ability, he's about the only Leaf who will stand in front of the opposition's net! I don't think the Leafs would have suffered much if he was moved, Belak and Perrot could have taken over the "enforcer" roll. I agree, Leetch looks VERY nice in a Leafs jersey, so does Francis! He's not afraid to stand in front of the net. Maybe some of the younger players will pick up on this and realise there is a small price to pay to be successful. Nice pick up for the Sens too in getting DeVries, would have liked to see him in T.O. too, along with Gerber. We Leaf fans realise all our hopes fall squarely on a wonky back, read Belfour. The Habs are playing pretty good hockey right now, but as the intensity rises in the playoffs their fans will realise size does count. Can't wait to play the Sens on March 27. There'll be a lot of tears flowing after that game. All the Sens fans will be calling the radio shows complaining that they are not tough enough. Oh well, at least the cup will end up in Ontario, just down the road from the Nation's Capitol.

Re: Travis Greene - 03/18/04 11:01 AM

Hi Paul

They arn't banning them - they are saying that anyone wearing a leaf jersey must make a donation to the food bank.
I believe that Toronto is thinking of doing the same thing only with Sens fans

Nope - nothing to do with me. If it was up to me, I'd like to make them do something much more embarrasing ( any ideas John ? )

I am a little ticked that while Ottawa council are making sweeping cut backs to staff and services, they think they have time to talk about the NHL.

I wouldn't want to stop the leaf fans from coming - it's fun. I do get a little upset though by so many Ottawa residents who still support the leafs - what's up with those people ??

To be honest I know absolutely nothing about hockey (I am assuming that is what this thread is about).

Re: hmmm - 03/25/04 01:12 PM

Well, let's have a lookie here. Ottawa-93 pts., Toronto-94 pts., I think that puts us ahead of you Maggie. And when we go undefeated for the last 5 games, that'll certainly keep us ahead of you. Since we play you two more times, (and we will win those games ), it's safe to say Ottawa will end up in say 6th? The only disappointing thing about that is we won't get to meet you in the first round. It'd be nice to have a couple of good "exhibition" games to warm up for the real playoffs. I agree that this will be a great spring for hockey fans. (as long as you don't cheer for the Sens that is. ) I have to laugh though, every time my son sees Alfredsson he says "There's that girl!" Geez, you'd think that if you made $$millions every year you could afford a hair cut. Or has Alfredsson sworn not to cut his hair since he promised a Stanley Cup win?

We will win it - that's for sure.
Also, I had heard there is a good chance we will meet you in the first round ? I could kick myself because we had a chance at tickets for the first playoff game and passed on it.

Now to the main part of your post. How old is your son ? Tell him from me that there is absolutely nothing wrong with Alfredsson. I think he is adorable.
He really rubs you leaf fans the wrong way dosn't he.

Lord, I hope he dosn't become one of you - that'll kill me. Then I'd have to really really hate the leafs.

I'm in no way ready to throw the towel in. I believe the Sens are saving their efforts for the playoffs.

Leafs are going down

Maggie

Posted by: tinynic

Re: hmmm - 03/26/04 08:38 AM

One down, four to go. We play you Saturday and then again April 3. My son is 8 and he knows his hockey. He also knows a real NHL player from a figure skater.(Alfredsson? ) The sad fact is in the NHL palyoffs, defense wins, and that starts with the goalie. Should Belfour's back stay healthy, he's better than Lalime. (doesn't that mean lemon in French? Maybe it's lime, but close enough.) The only thing scaring me right now, and it has nothing to do with the opposition, is the Leafs ability to produce on the power play, and specialty units can mean the difference between winning and loosing. We've played the Sens four time so far and won three! And who can forget that four goal deficit we erased in the third period on Feb. 4 to win 5-4. At any rate, by the time the playoffs roll around, Alfredsson's hair will be soooo long that he won't be able to see! Just over a week to go. I can't wait!! Just a quick, off topic question, I was listening to The Fan 590 this morning and they had a guest on who thinks teams should be limited to three lines and the schedule should be cut back to 70 games. He felt this would get rid of the goons on the team, ie. Oliwa of the Flames who summer trains by going to a boxing gym, and this would greatly improve the quality of the games. It would also rid teams of these $1-2 million players who only see 5-6 mins. of ice time saving them $$. I think it's a wonderful idea. I find that a lot of games get bogged down by these fourth liners who should be in the AHL. Any thoughts?

Toronto looked very good last night. Even Domi looked good.

Alfredson really could use a haircut or a new helmut. Those folks in Ottawa should chip in some money for him. It's too bad Ottawa will probably be out in the first round.

Take care, Murray

Posted by: sarnia

Re: hmmm - 03/27/04 09:44 AM

Well, tonights the night for NHL Ontario fans at least - Ottawa vs the Leafs.

I was at the game as the ACC around the end of January to see Ottawa get their butts kicked. My AS was absolutely brutal and I could barely walk with the pain. But, free tickets 15 seats behind the leafs bench made everything okay. We drove the three hours to Toronto and stayed overnight. The only drawback was going bra shopping at the Eaton Centre with my wife. Walking, walking, walking. Apparently, there is a rule that everytime we are in Toronto, we need to go bra shopping (and Chinatown). Thank God for Percocets.

The fans were chanting "Alfie, Alfie" as soon as he touched the puck. And that was the game Chara who is about 6'9" tossed the leaf player around like a ragdoll. During the warmups, Domi and Chara were chatting at centre ice - there was a height difference of about ten feet and they were all smiles.

tonight - Toronto 5 Ottawa 2

Of course, Detroit will smoke Colorado this afternoon on their quest for the cup. Beware of the Wings - they are the favorite to win the cup.

Have a good day.

FYI - those free tickets had a face value of $197.50 each. Ouch. But I could see Pat Quinns hair.

Re: hmmm - 03/27/04 11:57 AM

I like your thinking Murray. T.O. 5-2 over the Sens. I notice Maggie isn't saying much here, I guess she's nervous. How about a little wager on the battle of Ontario tonight? The loosing team's fans cheer for the other team on April 3? I don't think the Sens fans will go for it though. The price to go to an NHL game in Ontario is prohibitive to us common folk. Ever notice before the start of every period at a Leaf game about 2/3 of the platinum seats are EMPTY! All those suits sipping brandy while the real fans are up in the purple section, unable to read the names on the back of the jerseys, cheering as if their lives depended on it. They should put the corporate seats up in the purples and let the real fans watch from ice level.

No one said life would be easy, just worth it.

Hi Angus

Well, we agree on one thing anyway. The corel centre has the same problem - all the expensive seats are half empty, even when it's a sell out. The occupants of those seats are off in the bars or wherever - while the true fans are cheering their hearts out in the cheap sections. This allways ticks me off !!!!!!!!!!

Maggie

Posted by: tinynic

Re: hmmm - 03/29/04 08:08 AM

Hi Maggie. It makes you scratch your head doesn't it? Why would tehy pay $200 per seat plus and not use them? If they want to be entertained and hob nob, go to the ballet or a stage presentation. If they want to sip brandy, go to a fancy bar or restaurant. As for the Alfredsson signing, whew! At least he won't end up in T.O. That would mean I'd have to cheer for him. But as we hockey fans know, signing an upcoming free agent doesn't mean they will stay with that team. It could be another GM has a deal in place but wanted him locked into a contract so they would know how much his salary would be. Budgets play a big roll now in signings. But for the Sens sake I hope he stays there. Your new owner seems willing to spend on payroll, which I'm sure is a huge relief to Sens fans. I liked Bryden though. He was stuck with a really bad deal from the Gov't. The municipal, provincial, and federal gov'ts are reaping the benifits of having a team out in the middle of no where Kanata, through all the taxes the Sens must pay, all the extra jobs... and made the poor guy pay for the ramps coming from, and going to, the 417! If that meant the Sens owned the ramps they should have been allowed to close them on nights there was nothing going on in the Corel Centre. To be completely honest, Ottawa is my second team. Should the Leafs get knocked out then I cheer for the Sens. Hey! At least they're here in Ontario. After that it's any Canadian team. Should there not be any Canadian teams, I look at who's left and figure out which one I dislike the most and cheer for the other team. With the possibility of a season void of any hockey, I'm going to catch as many games as I can.

My last boss gave me 2 tickets to a Sens game. They were right behind the Sens' bench - fabulous !!!!!!!
I couldn't help but notice though that all the seats around were half empty.
My boss was a nasty sarcastic SOB sometimes. At a later date he jeeringly pointed out what good tickets he gave me and that I usuually have to sit in the cheap seats. I said that's ok because all the real fans sit in the cheap seats. The good seats are filled with people who arn't even interested in the game.

Well, three down and still without a loss. The only problem is that those pesky Sens keep pace with us. They sure got lucky last night. I don't understand your boss, was he upset because he felt you were telling him that HE wasn't interested in the game? Oh well, sometimes the truth hurts. You know, it is VERY possible that the Leafs and Sens will meet in the first round, it will all depend on what Boston does. Then it will come down to who has home ice advantage. Since we are going to win our last two games, including the Sens game on Saturday, we'll get home ice advantage. This is a very exciting finish to the season.

Re: hmmm - 03/30/04 10:11 AM

Yup, the Leafs won again last night. They showed perserverance when they were down 2-0. But the Sens pulled out a huge OT win. So, things are shaping up for a TO-Sens playoff series. That will be some excellent hockey.

I'm wondering if they'll just give Detroit the cup and forget the playoffs. Just a joke - it's just that Detroit is only an hour or so over the border from me. And there is lots of stuff on the radio, etc... Hockeytown already has their parade route planned.

And Maggie, your poor boss! It must be tough being able to afford those tickets. At least he gave you some tickets though.

Actually though, at the corel centre, the cheap seats still have quite a good view. It was designed very well and I'm sure it seats a lot less than the Air Canada Centre right ?

You're so right - good seats are full of suits.

Re: hmmm - 03/31/04 07:38 AM

We're always ready, but it never happens! I guess the Sens aren't ready! I attended a Sens game at the Corel Centre a few years ago in thre cheap seats. I think I was third or fourth row from the top. They were playing Vancouver and Damian Rhodes recorded his first career shut-out. We had this guy behind us, I'll never forfet it, everytime Radek Bonk touched the puck he started yelling, "Bonk! Bonk! Bonk!" (I guess he was a Flintstones fan too. There was one episode, I can't remember if it was when Fred was in a diet group or not, but the members would go around yelling Bonk! Bonk!... ) Then this guy behind us would taunt the Vancouver goalie with, "Corey! Your dinner's ready!" All game! I was hoping that he would loose his voice part way through the game, but he didn't. Oh well. The seats weren't bad, but it was a steep climb!

I'm not sure about this year, but do you remember last year there was a ban on selling playoff tickets to Leaf fans? All this discrimination against Leaf fans, I just don't get it.

Re: hmmm - 03/31/04 04:54 PM

sheesh... tickets, what a sore point, even if I could afford a Leafs game, there are never any available, and that included the Ballard era too!

The Corel Centre - 18,500 seats
138 feet is the farthest seat from the ice
150 private suites on three levels

The Hanger - 18,800 seats
167 feet in basketball mode (nothing given for hockey mode)
40 Platinum Lounges (unique to a North American venue)
65 Executive Suites + 32 Theatre Suites + 16 Loge Suites (2nd and 3rd level loges)
Three Group Sales Areas, including a 200-seat gondola
one per cent of fixed seating for the disabled and their companions

Re: hmmm - 03/31/04 08:49 PM

OOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGG

You'll never guess what !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We have 2 tickets to the 1st home game of the playoffs YIPPEE !!!!!!!!!
I think they are almost the back row but I don't care.
Hope it's against the leafs.

Our tickets are far cheaper than at the Air Canada centre I believe.
It is fairly easy to get tickets - depending on who they are playing. The cheap seats usually sell out early though.
I think that fans are waiting to see who they play in the first round. If it is the leafs - tickets will sell out within minutes ( no accounting for taste )

Everybody jealous ??? Huh ???

Re: hmmm - 04/01/04 02:21 PM

Hey! Good for you! As long as you're not too disappointed when the Leafs win, should they be your first opponent. My only ticket is CBC. I couldn't afford to stand outside the ACC during a Leaf game. It's still going to be a lot of fun for you. The reason the Corel Centre sells out so quickly if the Leafs play the Sens is because it's close enough to drive to from T.O. and tickets are available. So, Leaf fans leave Leaf Nation, travel down the 401 to catch a game they otherwise could never hope to see in town.

No one said life would be easy, just worth it.

Good thing we took it easy on you last night. I'd hate to see how bad it could have been. It's all about goaltending. The Sens should have picked up a goalie before the deadline, but they didn't. I just hope that should we meet you in the playoffs that the Sens won't be coming out to redeem themselves and catch us over confident. That could be really, really bad for us. But, Quinn will have them ready. A Boston loss or tie today and you won't have to worry about that, (GO Jersey), we'll be playing Montreal. GO! LEAFS GO!

Re: hmmm - 04/05/04 07:00 AM

Okay, let's see, refs are Leafs fans. Toronto was short handed for 386 mins. this season. That was 5th in the league. Where was Ottawa........Ah! There they are, 19th in the league with 347 mins. Now which team do the refs favour? I seem to remember Daniel (or is that Danielle?) smashing Tucker's face into the glass with no penalty. Not only that, he scored the winning goal right after! Or of course there was '93 when the Great One high sticked Gilmour in the face without getting a penalty, and he scored the winning goal too.Refs, Leaf fans? More like . There are the consipracy theorists out there who say Bettman instructed the refs to make sure L.A. won because with there being no American teams left the largest television market would be lost. Then Owen Nolan was cut open this year because of a stick, no penalty. Tucker was nicely cut by a stick, no penalty. Yet if Domi or Belak are within 50 feet of the other team's player and they fall, Domi and/or Belak would get penalties. BUT, I'm not bitter, it'll be that much sweeter when we win it this year. GO! LEAFS GO!

I wish the games started today though. We have to wait until Thursday to see Danielle prepare for the golf season. Hey Maggie, what game do you have tickets for? That would be so cool being there - I think you said their first home game. If Alfredson blows the series, he should pledge to the fans that he will shave his head.

Yeah! Now that would be a sight! And add to that, since he GUARANTEED a Stanley Cup, he plays for free until the Sens do win it. Leafs in six, Devils in seven, Boston in five, Islanders in five, Detroit in four, St. Louis in six, Vancouver in six, Dallas in seven. These are my predictions. At least I hope it plays out this way, it's how I picked my players for the playoff pool.

Habs in 6
Laughs in 7
TB in 4
NJ in 6
Det in 4
Stl. in 6
Van in 5
Dal in 6

TB over Habs in 5

Re: hmmm - 04/06/04 10:51 AM

You only got to see three games. Well, you might be right in your predictions. Imagine Vancouver winning the cup. Wow. I'd never hear the end of it from buddies out West.

Unfortunately or not, I'd speculate Detroit will be hard to beat. And Jersey. I'd love to see the Habs win it.

Just a tidbit of info though - My granny, rest her soul, was an original shareholder of Maple Leaf Gardens and had her shares until Steve Stavro made her sell them. She was into her 90's. She still would receive all of the Leafs stuff from the club yearly like the big calendars, etc... The leafs sent back the big huge stock certificate to her once it was cashed out. All of this memorabilia is in my brothers leafs room.

Granny told us that she didn't want to pass on until the Leafs won the cup. Well, she did a number of years back. Maybe this will be their year.

For now, Go Leafs.

I like the article. But I have a feeling that the Sens will win tonight. It pains me to say that, but if you read into the article, what do the Sens have to lose? They haven't beaten T.O. in the playoffs so there are no expectations. After being badly spanked last Saturday, they'll come out for redemption. The Leafs could possibly be over confident and be caught off guard. I am really praying the Leafs are aware that this is a huge possibility and be more pumped than ever, completely dominate the game, spank the Sens again, and watch the Sens completely implode. That would really make me happy. Unfortunately I'll have to miss the first part of the game because my son has lacrosse practice. And Maggie, we don't think we're the centre of the universe, we don't even think we're the centre of the hockey universe,we know!!!! You said gloves were off...

Well, as I said, I expected the Sens to take the first game. Now look out. The Leafs now realise they are in the playoffs and no other team has been better at rebounding from bad games than the Leafs. I hope now you realise that the Leafs are NOT favoured by the refs. The only other way the refs could have helped the Sens was if they carried sticks. True, most of the penalties we received were warranted, but these new composit sticks snap like dried twigs. And did ANYONE see Mogilny trip or hook anyone?? I saw a couple of different angles of this supposed infraction and Mogilny did nothing to help the Sens player fall. Is it Mogilny's fault that the Sens can't skate? All I know is that I am really looking forward to watching the Leafs put the Sens back where they belong, on the golf course! GO! LEAFS GO!

It happened Maggie; I saw it on TV myself. Every time the Leafs scored, a crowd leapt up and went insane. I saw it. It was great! And I know it was Eddie who helped win the game, but the last time I looked, the goalie was still a part of the team, and it takes a team to win. I have a feeling the Sens will come out tonight and try to take Belfour out. That’s just the way they are. Look at what Vaclav Varada tried to do to Sundin. It will be a good game tonight, and should the Sens be successful at throwing Belfour off his game, it’ll be the Sens by two. BUT, it ain’t goin’ to happen. GO! LEAFS GO!!

Re: hmmm - 04/14/04 09:42 AM

Well, my last post had the Red Wings sweeping their series against Nashville. Talking about egg on my face.The series is tied 2-2 heading back into Joe Louis Arena. And the Wings looked awful. They pulled their goalie, Mannie Legace, and put CUJO in net for the third period. He hasn't played for months. Wow, what a mess.

And last night, the Habs had that goal scored with seconds left in the third period. And then overtime. They may as well get out their golf clubs. I wanted to see them win since they are Canadian.

And the Leafs - talking about decisive! We had a friend come by who is not a hockey watcher and stated "what is with that guys hair?" - talking about Daniella. I had to laugh.
Thankfully and mercifully, the Leafs can get on with round two now that pesky Ottawa is just about out of the way.

We're not quiet. We just try to get some sleep after the games. You see, we don't have to worry about the outcome of the series as Sens fans do, so we don't loose any sleep and play on the computer to pass time. No, you see, if the series continues the way it has we'll win the next two games. Sens won the first one, Leafs won the next two, Sens won last night, Leafs win the next two, and the series is over. We let Nieuwendyk stay home, we took Mats off in the second, just to rest up, we took Tucker out, we had Domi on the power play , and, the players bench became the penalty box. We've overcome greater odds than this before, and we'll overcome them again. It sure is exciting though. It's also nice to have people to talk hockey with, thanks Maggie.

Re: hmmm - 04/15/04 09:33 AM

Two incidents in consecutive games of the Habs taking dives to get calls... once they got it, the other time it cost them the game.

"Ribeiro fell to the ice in dramatic fashion Sunday night with 34 seconds remaining, drawing a whistle while the Bruins had pulled goalie Andrew Raycroft and were pressing for the tying goal.

A trainer appeared to treat Ribeiro's shoulder, but the Bruins suspect he embellished the injury and were incensed that he was grinning and exchanging taunts with Boston players from the bench afterward."


Once he got to the bench he was all grins and giggles. Acted like a little school kid that got away with something.

Alexei Kovalev claims his hand went numb and the officials blew it. Sheldon Souray said that doesn't mean you stop playing. Whatever the case, Kovalev and Souray collided in the neutral zone, allowing Glen Murray to pick up the loose puck, skate in and beat Jose Theodore for the game-winner 9:27 into the second overtime that gave the Bruins a 3-1 series lead. "There's nothing you can say about that," said Kovalev, whose right hand was wrapped in a bag of ice. "We ended up in the middle of the ice, and Sheldon ended up losing the puck." Kovalev argued in The Boston Globe that "One thing I know, they would have called it on me if I did that. It feels like (the Bruins) didn't get lucky, they got help." Souray had another take. "He (Kovalev) says he got slashed. Well, yeah, but do you stop playing? It's double overtime, (the referees) are going to let you play at that point," an upset Souray told the Toronto Star.

I watched the end of the Habs game with my brother and saw the "slash".... the commentators back in the studio even laughed at the theatrics. I think he got his just results.

I played soccer for years... I have a hard time watching soccer because of all the dives people make to draw whistles so I rarely watch. Reason I love hockey is because they are tough and play through the pain. Not the case recently with the Habs in past two games.

I do not dislike the Habs... just their recent antics.

Re: hmmm - 04/15/04 12:36 PM

Kind of like the "major injury" he received in the Big Apple when he was hit with a howitzer. He was taken to the dressing room by the trainers who expected nothing short of an ended career. Then he came back out to score the tying goal, and I believe he assisted the winning goal. He writhed on the ice as if his head was taken off. Refs don't forget things like that. He has a reputation for embelishing, so unless his hand is hanging almost off, he won't get the call. Souray is right, even if his hand went numb, kick the puck away or to a team mate. You don't skate away from the play looking at the refs to see if you're going to get a call., especially if you're the last guy back. Kovalev bumped into Souray as Souray was coming back, so there was no one else to defend the puck. Unbelievable. Aparently he was having a heck of a game too. Now all anyone will remember Kovalev for is causing the winning goal and putting the Habs down 3 games to 1. Too bad.

Wow, a tangled web we weave in the world of hockey.

Tonight is the night for the leafs. At least it better be. I'll admit they were sorta beat up last game. However, it was all for show to give the poor fans in Ottawa some semblance of hope. Imagine having your Captain looking like bimbo the clown.

Does anyone remember the song: "Bimbo, bimbo, I'm a happy birthday clown, bimbo, bimbo, I'm a happy birthday clown and I would like to say.... I wish you a happy birthday." I believe it was from the kids TV show rocketship 7. (You would have had to grow up in Toronto/Buffalo area during the 60's and 70's.)

Of course, I did enjoy the ballerina picture of Alfie.

Murray in Sarnia

PS - I enjoy watching Junior A hockey and have season tickets to the Sarnia Sting. Anyways, last night on TV, they showed the London Nights vs the Guelph Storm. In my humble opinion, it was way more exciting to watch than the two NHL games on - Montreal and Detroit. These guys were end to end hockey. London won in overtime to tie up the series 1-1.

Well now, that was a game..... amazing how well the flow goes when the refs stay out and let the players decide. Close checking, low shooting, and Belfour shining yet again. And Domi getting the winning goal, how's about that Sens fans!


Fact for thought---- Teams that win game 5 after the series is tied go on to win the round 80% of the time.... and the fact we do well in the Corel Centre looks good for us.


ps... Whats with Daniella and his promises again? "We are definately going to win games 5 & 6"?? Small problem there bucko, there's an Eagle in your way!

GO LEAFS GO!!

Maggie: "Notice all those leaf folks are pretty darned quiet all of a sudden "
Hmmm, seems the Sens fans are awfully quiet. Maybe now they are sleeping after coming to the realization their season is over. To quote Daniella Alfredsson: " You haven't seen the end of us." He's right, we have one more game, then we'll have seen the end of them. Imagine, Smolinski scoring the winning goal and the Leafs win! Oh well, it ain't over 'till the weight challanged lady sings, and the fourth win is alway the hardest to get. See you all tomorrow night in fron of the t.v. watching the game. GO! LEAFS GO!

Hey Doug.... has the Corel lifted it's ban on Leaf jerseys yet? I seem to recall that there was a big problem as they said that there were more leaf jerseys than sens jerseys in the crowd, so the leafs fans were instructed to take off their blue and white in order to enter the arena.....

Poor sens... not enough supporters eh?

Great game last night guys..... I was trying to sew buttons onto costumes at the same time and I almost bled to death!!!!! I kept jumping up and sticking myself with the damn needle.

I think I'll even get some beer for Sunday...... get ready for the celebration!! GO LEAFS GO!

I agree with you Tim.... even Andre was disgusted and he is a "die hard" habs fan. What made it even worse was that the next day he blamed his team mate Souray.... that's just plain childish.... it's like jumping out of the window and blaming your injuries on the guy that failed to catch you!!!

Anyhow.... we will be watching tonight.... I'm just hoping for some good hockey... none of the theatrics...

Re: hmmm - 04/18/04 07:36 AM

Okay, the heat is on! Will the Sens show up tonight? Or will they reflect their captain Daniella and resemble nothing but a bunch of hot air? I really hope the Leafs show up tonight, they have a penchant for making things hard on themselves. That Calgary/Vancouver game was a great one. I couldn't stay awake long enough to watch the whole game, but what I did see, Calgary showed a lot of grit, and I like that. Vancouver didn't say die either. I almost wish I lived in the west so I could watch those two teams play more often. A friend of mine sent me a link to a Senators song. There is the a_ _ word, and the he_ _ word in it, each used once. I hope you all enjoy it. GO! LEAFS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: hmmm - 04/19/04 08:19 AM

I don't know if I can stand it!!!!

Stuck my finger on the hot-glue gun when the Sens scored last night.... a painful reminder of the game! I also made a "boo-boo"..... I didn't realize that Andre was speaking to his Mom via audio on MSN ...... even though she doesn't speak a word of English... it appears she does know what f*** means in English!!!! .... especially when it's repeated a number of times.. and very loudly I might add!

I "third" the sentiment about someone having to lose. It's been a great series and a shame that one team has to go. Belfour was absolutely unbelievable as usual... Lalime played a "blinder" too.

I get to watch the Habs game tonight with Andre.... that should be a good game too. I sure hope that the Habs win else it's going to be pretty miserable around here.

for the Leaf fans - 04/19/04 09:00 AM

Little Johnny was in his nursery class when the teacher asked the children
what their fathers did for a living.

All the typical answers came up - fireman, policeman, salesman, etc...

Johnny was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked him
about his father.

"My father's an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret and takes off all his
clothes
in front of other men.

Sometimes, if the offer's really good, he'll go out to the alley with some
screaming gay guy and have sex with them."

The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other
children to work on some colouring, and took little Johnny aside to ask
him, "Is that really true about your father?"

"No," said Johnny, "he plays for the Leafs but I was too embarrassed to say
so".

Ahem..... uh, John, Maggie..... what happened? The NOTtawa Sens choked again? Oh how could that be? Perhaps Daniella should reconsider fortune telling? Perhaps Ottawa would be wise to get a goalie that can actually stop a puck?

Um, oh ya, another stat worth mentioning, 4 to nothing, the number of series won by Toronto, or lost by Ottawa.

Is that YOLK in the collective Sen fan faces?

Who's afraid to come out now?

Hey, at least we still have 3 Canuck teams alive!


Oh! Hear that? That's Ottawa fans clambering aboard the be-LEAF bandwagon!

well,

being somewhat 'hockey oblivious' a couple thoughts...watched parts of two hockey games this week...

why was no one in ottowa playing with the intensity of the bruins (who looked ferocious) ?

in basketball(don't know about hockey) when you break away three on two headed for the goal if you
want to win you go to the hole...you don't pull up to organize a play...?

is " Francis " russ francis of the hartford whalers ?

last night's game looked really ugly...all those ottowa shots and nothing in the net...must be frustrating.

maybe i'll watch a whole game next season

Re: hmmm - 04/21/04 07:16 AM

Was that a bell I heard? Because someone got schooled. Did the sun rise in the nation's capitol this morning? When do we play each other again? What a rivalry we have developed over the last few years. I guess the Sens will be hearing the number 4 for quite a while. Lost 4 -1, lost 4 games, eliminated 4 times, and they'll be hearing fourrrrr! as they are driving their carts down the fairway. It was a great series though. You had me worried. Daniella would make a fantastic fortune teller, they never get it right anyway. Maggie, it's okay to cheer for Ontario's other, (first), team. Secretly, if there are no other Canadian teams left, and the Bruins, Detroit, oh heck, if Montreal, the Rangers or Flyers, are the only other teams playing, I cheer for the Sens. It's only right. Thanks again for starting this thread. GO!!!! LEAFS GO!!!!!

There was substantial yelling in the Sens dressing room after the game....

Daniella tore a strip off of his team mates for poor judgement....

They dumped his conditioner down the drain!



AND apparently Ottawa has mis-placed another hundred million bucks similiar to the sponsorship scandal, except it wasn't our politicians that mis-placed it.... it was Eugene Melnyk wondering were his investment went!

Second Round - bye, bye Ottawa. And onto the Flyers. I've gotten a few emails and phone calls from friends in other parts of the country. ANd they're saying the Leafs are not tough enough to beat the Flyers. Even the TSN dude said the same thing. Well, they are wrong. Leafs in Six.

And, I understand that the NHL is thinking of giving the Wings a bye directly into round three.

I'd like to see the Habs keep going. Watch for Thorton to be traded if it is contracturally possible. He was a poor as Alfie. How much money was Alfie just given? Poor Laline.

Enjoy Thursdays game.

Re: Important Safety Bulletin - 04/23/04 10:15 AM

You know what? It really doesn't matter if the Leafs go any further, they beat the Sens and that's all that matters. Mind you, SHOULD the Habs advance, I'd be icing on the cake if the Leafs could advance too, just to put them out. It'll be a good, rough series. I really didn't expect the Leafs to win last night. Coming out of the first with a 1 - 1 tie was good enogh for me. When they get rested and get a few healthy bodies back, they'll more than give the Flyers a run for their money. Take Yzerman and Shanahan out of Detroit and cripple Datsyuk and what would Detroit be able to do? With Mogilny still playing with a sore hip, Sundin and Nolan out, these are pretty important players to the Leaf team. They battle hard and that's all I ask for. I'd rather see Antropov out of the line up and give Kaberle only 10 mins. a game though. Keberle is so afraid of being hit he'd rather watch the Philly player take the puck and try to check him after. Where's Maggie?

I don't know if it was to be the Sens' year. They went and fired the coach, even though I told them not to
I don't think the winning team holds on to the REAL cup. I could be wrong but I think the real Stanley cup is in the Hockey Hall of Fame in - where else - the big TO.

Re: Important Safety Bulletin - 01/18/05 04:56 PM

Hey Maggie,

I wonder about that...I think you're right, although the team definitely gets to keep the "real" Cup right after the playoffs, as each player and coach gets a turn with it for a few days. Of couse, being a hockey fan, I'm sure you've heard many of the legendary stories about various abuses the poor Cup has suffered on these excursions--dents, dings, babies' bare bottoms sitting in the bowl while it is used as a tub, accidentally being left at bars, many visits to strip clubs in recent years. The list goes on and on!

I never thought about the fact that the Tampa Bay Lightning(!!!) might be the last team to win the Cup as we know it today. I swear, the way both sides are acting in this dispute, and the way the fans haven't even seemed to notice, makes me fear that the NHL as we knew it is done and gone. I heard over the weekend from a friend of mine who knows people in the Red Wings organization that the player's association is telling players that if there ends up being no season this year, as there obviously won't be, that they should plan on there being no season next year also and make appropriate financial arrangements. If the NHL is gone for two full years, it will be gone forever. There will certainly be another league to take its place, but I can't believe the arrogance and stupidity of all involved in this dispute. Can't they realize that, other than the diehard fans, people just don't care about hockey the way the do the other major sports? That, in the US anyhow, hockey really can't even be called a "major" sport anymore, as NASCAR is clearly more popular and should be thought of as the "fourth major."?

I have never seen a group of athletes and owners be so absolutely suicidal as the hockey folks are being right now. When baseball lost the World Series, it took a LONG time for the fans to come back, and that is supposedly the U.S. national pasttime (although in reality, football passed baseball a long time ago). People are realizing they can get along just fine without pro hockey, and I think the folks involved in this fiasco are in for a rude awakening if (not when) they come back. I know here in Michigan anyhow (much like in Canada), there is plenty of hockey for folks who love the game--great teams at the University of Michigan and Michigan State, as well as very competitive teams at schools like Ferris State and Lake Superior State; plenty of minor league hockey in almost every Michigan city of any note, not to mention Sarnia, Windsor, and Sault St. Marie; junior hockey; travel hockey, even high school hockey--many hockey fans are learning that these options are often more exciting than the pro game anyhow.

I just shake my head every time I hear another story about how the two sides aren't even talking. It's just sad.

Re: Important Safety Bulletin - 01/23/05 10:41 PM

Hi Brad

Well I think that in Canada, many people care very much about hockey. They are finding other leagues to watch right now ( as we have ) but I think that, for many, none of these are as exciting as the NHL. However, I think that even the most "die hard " fans find the NHL salaries are completely ludicrous - to the point where they may even settle for watching different leagues rather than see those high salaries continue.

Gosh I hope the cup is safe and sound.

In reply to:

I think that's a bit of a understatement seeing as this thread has been active for more than 15 months, the pages eagerly read 10,895 times and, if you are using the default, is 50 pages long! Canadians don't just care about hockey, they foam at the mouth when they simply hear the word hockey. I thought us Americans were crazy about football...and we are...but you guys have taken crazy way beyond the defined limits! All this for a game that even the cameramen can't keep up with.
