Wendy

Er... wait. This is Tuesday. D'oh! I'll let you know tomorrow. :D

St.Chris

"Dating myself" close, I was born during the summer of love. Guess what year that was?

Bob

I think it was 1967 or 1968? I know that I was still just a kid back then. (b. 1962)

St.Chris

1967 is correct brother Bob...mom said it was the most awesome year of her life.

mightbite

the year st.louis stole the world series from Detroit.

St.Chris

Leafs beat the Habs in the Stanley Cup finals too.

bruce

redhead here, sue and i went to hockey last week, it was cool, and probably be there tomorrow since we dont have anything to do

cant wait till komets season starts

GO KOMETS

St.Chris

Glad you're coming out Bruce, as you can see we have a lot of fun.

Justin COhn

I'll expect a let's go Cohn chant.

Cat Eyes

I expect a Cohny goal if I chant...I know, I'm pretty darn demanding, but hey, you have been promising me a hat trick for weeks now, so time to pay the piper -er- redhead!! Only one goal, no hat trick required...

Hey!! Someone who is older than Cat on this blog!! Ha!! Take that, Deuce, ya age-outing son of a...!! I'm close in age, St. Chris, but not quite...you still have at least 3 years on me. That's all I'll say...and it was probably my mom's worst year since I was an awful baby!! Go figure...

Redhead Bruce...find me tomorrow...I'll be with "the goalie"...he's almost 8, and most definitely NOT a redhead, but he is cute!

Wendy..you should come out...blow off work...come on...I'm the bad influence, aren't I? We've got a crowd coming, sounds like...we need more chanters!!

St. Chris, what number are you?

St.Chris

I'm the one wearing black skates.

FiveMinuteMajor

1967 is before my time... not a lot before but still before! :p
If I had to choose between the flames and the Kaptain Komet I'd take the flames, KK creeps (kreeps?) me out a bit. What about those orange jerseys with the fireball and the "FW" on them that they wore on Sundays a few seasons ago? Those weren't awful... weren't great either but not awful. And I also don't look good in pink! I don't look so hot in orange either, but I'm willing to suffer for my Komets!

St.Chris

Graf skates at that.

Cat Eyes

You're gonna make me work for this, aren't ya, St. Chris? OK...I'll be watchin' the feet...black Graf skates, huh?...LOL!! I'll find you somehow! You are funny!

Wendy...I had heard that about your name...I work with another Wendy, and she told me that. I don't really remember all the whole Peter Pan story (I have a notorious bad memory, repression is a wonderful mind tool!), but what I do remember, I liked! And ya gotta come out manana..."the goalie" really wants to meet "the new Wendy"...

Sorry..."Cat and the other redheads"...I always have sorta been a ringleader whether I intended to be or not! ;) And I'm a middle child, too, I'm supposed to be the peacemaker, not the troublemaker!! But then, I never do what I am supposed to do...more fun for me that way! :)

FiveMinuteMajor...according to Geronimo, when I wear Komets orange, I look like I am on fire, what with the red hair and all!! But I did not pick the team colors, so I wear it anyway!! And apparently it's an attention-grabber, because Geronimo picked me out of the crowd right away!!

Jerad Shaw

No disrespect at all here, but when has this blog been over ran with female bloggers? I don't mind at all. I'm just wondering.

Justin COhn

Just look for the one who doesn't come for a line change when everyone else does -- that's St. Chris. lol.

By the way, I only have one goal this season, so I won't promise anymore hat tricks. But I do get nasty out there; I'm the hustle guy.

Hoss

It's called the off-season!!! I just wondered when it became a place to send e-mails rather than talk about hockey stuff...

Let's hope it gets under control when the season gets closer, which can't come too soon!

Jerad Shaw

Hoss, you are preaching to the Choir my friend!!!! You might not know me, but I know you!!! Worried yet!!!??? I can't wait for some frozen ice!!!

St.Chris

frozen ice?

Justin COhn

Hoss and Jerad, if women want to come on here and talk about my hockey prowess, they are welcome to do so. There has to be a forum for that sort of thing. :)

JungleMonkey

And if they chose to talk about JungleMonkeys banana.. then so be it... there must also be a forum for that sort of thing.

deuce

I'm still 37 Cat...and you?

Justin Cohn

That's not exactly true, since, a) I can delete comments about fruit and b) I drive female readership tot he site more than you.

Karla Stranger

Bogy signed with the Ducks......YAYYYYYYYY. BTW.....seems Im older than you deuce....44.

JungleMonkey

Easy Cohny, I'm not testing your lady magnetism here... just tossing around a joke...

Wendy

ROFL. ahem... No comment.

Justin Cohn

ROFL? Oh, yeah, well, BOFW.

Karla Stranger

ROFL=Rolling On Floor Laughing. Geeze Cohny get with the program. LOL

Justin Cohn

WEXXXXXXM = Well EXxxxxxcuse Me. Lol.

Karla Stranger

ROFLMAO

Justin Cohn

OK, I'll bite. MAO?

Hoss

ROFLMAO= Rolling On the Floor Laughing with a Mango And an Orange! DUH!!!!

Karla Stranger

Too flippin funny.

ROFLMAO= Rolling On Floor Laughing My A$$ Off

Hoss

Shaw, I'm worried....

Usally I don't hang around with THUGS that get "Shaw'd!" They bring my rep down....

Karla Stranger

When is the pick-up hockey game? Where?

Cat Eyes

Apparently, I went to bed waaay to early last night and missed out on all this fun.....wow.....

Thanks, Cohny...glad to hear the ladies are welcome here...we appreciate that!

Hey mightbite, I won the ebay auction, so I'm getting my Sharks jersey!! Less than $20!! Now I have to hide it and not tell "the goalie" until I get him one too. Hope I find him one soon!!

Deuce, you know I am only 20, honey!! LOL!! I wish! Hey, you gonna come out to the game tonight?

Jungle Monkey, you are a bad monkey!! Funny, though!! You better talk about hockey or you'll get yelled at like me...but then, you're a guy, so maybe not?

St. Chris, frozen ice is the best kind...remember in a few of the playoff games, it was more like slush in the corners and it was sort of a problem? Made the puck go where we did not want it to go? But I guess by definition, ice IS frozen, yes?

FiveMinuteMajor

Ok, showing my ignorance here, what the heck does BOFW mean? I have a feeling i'll feel really silly when someone clues me in...
Most guys don't complain when a place is overrun with women! :P

Cat Eyes

No clue...can't help on that one!!

Karla Stranger

5MM.....It was Cohny TRYING to be funny. He is totally puter lingo illiterate. I mean GEE he had no idea what ROFL meant. LOL

Karla Stranger

5MM here is the conversation....

Wendy:ROFL. ahem... No comment.
Cohny:ROFL? Oh, yeah, well, BOFW.
Karla Stranger:ROFL=Rolling On Floor Laughing. Geeze Cohny get with the program. LOL
Cohny:WEXXXXXXM = Well EXxxxxxcuse Me. Lol.
Karla Stranger:ROFLMAO
Cohny:OK, I'll bite. MAO?
Hoss:ROFLMAO= Rolling On the Floor Laughing with a Mango And an Orange! DUH!!!!
Karla Stranger:Too flippin funny.

Drop the Gloves

Let's talk some Komet Hockey, enough of this chit chat, there are other sites if you want to shoot the bull, let's talk hockey.

TGP

Yawn...

Wendy

Let's talk hockey? Okay. So... How about those Washington Capitals?! Er... Wait... I forgot. They aren't playing right now. Did anyone see that Minnesota Wild game last night? Oh, sorry. That didn't happen either.

And to be honest, I don't know computer lingo that well either. But I can open another browser and google acronyms. And you call yourself a reporter. :D

Cat Eyes

Wendy...are you coming out to the HOCKEY game tonight??? Hope to see ya there! I'll keep an eye out for ya.

Drop the Gloves...what's on your mind? Whatcha wanna talk about? This is how you change the convo, BTW...it's easy...

mightbite

CatsEyes-good deal on the sharks jersey=all sharks stuff on clearence sale-ha-ha.

pukebunny

Let's talk about which Komet looks the best in their uniform? I think the bestest line would have Morency, Bobby Stewart and Oliver or whativer his name is. That is the only important hockey topic.

mightbite

I want Morencey-Chaz Johnson-Woods=1stline/Sgori-Mirastey-Legault=2cd line/

Cat Eyes

You're on your own there, "pukebunny"...dig your own grave with that line of talk!! LOL!!

mightbite

ooops 3rd line=Chalk-Aquino-Bootland.

Cat Eyes

I'm excited to get the jersey...got a Sharks watch and some trading cards for the boy as well!! Ebay addict!! They have classes at the post office if you want to learn how to put your stuff up, mightbite. Or not, if you want to keep it...I can understand that!

This season, if we get Legault back, "the goalie" is gonna do an orange mohawk like him for a couple games...at least if his mom can figure out how to get the long hair to stand up straight and stay up there for a few hours!! So he wants Legault back too, for a whole different reason...plus he likes the fighters too.
