No, there aren't any openings.  At least not so long as ruiner signs up.  Anyone seen his presence in the last little while?  11/12 are signed up.  Draft is two weeks hence, August 26th, 8:30 CST.

I play basketball in our alumni tournament, so three games a year.   :P

Sorry, three knee surgeries later and my doc said well, you can keep playing but you'll keep having knee surgeries so really it's up to you.  And at the last consult prior to the third surgery they said "might as well throw you on the list for knee replacement since it takes so long to come through".  So yeah, didn't bode well. 

So now I bike about 100 miles a week and that's pretty much it.  I golf too, but that's not exercise IMO.

I'm also sitting on my ass waiting to see what others stumble upon.  Never first up the trail.

As it is they put out a security update that's freezing win 7 machines last week that pissed me off insanely.  Download, and during the reboot process, your machine freezes.  Totally f'n stupid and I had to ultimately shut off auto updates till they fix their fix.

I'm running Win7 and I get about 20 minutes before the computer freezes.  It's annoying as hell.  I've spent the evening backing up files and I'm going to reinstall the operating system tomorrow.  It's been so aggravating I may opt to upgrade to Win10 immediately even though I should know better.

Registered as a Mustang?  Yeah, no.  Beautiful car.   :o

Do kids buy into the $20 6" line anyway?  I also would not buy an Xbox for my 4 or 8 year old daughter.  Or an antique lamp.  Or a TV.  Or a lawnmower.  Or anything that wasn't primarily intended for a 4 year old.

The price isn't an issue.  Look at the Frozen toys, that's where the real money is going right now.  Barbie's in whore costumes are A-OK though cuz it's dress up.  Neither Tiffany nor Allison were ever going to buy the Leia figure for their daughter anyway and neither is Hasbro targeting them with the figure.  Gawd.  People are so effing stoopid.

Both Porkins and Willrow are up for sale at right now.

Thanks.  I've got about a dozen of these things sitting around that I need to sell, hopefully I can get enough to cover the cost of the Willrow.  Thank the maker (in this case I mean Pearson).   :-*

That is just so spectacular.  And if the RS knobs are whinging about it, so very much the better. 

Well she is 50.

Which makes her younger than me.   :-*

I have a 32 year old neice and a 35 year old nephew.  So yeah, no big. 

But Marisa Tomei?  Yum. 


I really miss Wildcats. Place went downhill when it changed over to Coyote Ugly.

Don't know if anyone ever bought any Dukes of Hazzard General Lee cards back in the day, but now is the time to sell them.  Prices are waaaaaaaaaay up on eBay thanks to the Confederate flag kerfuffel.

Regarding Kessel's perceived baggage, I hear it's every bit the Toronto Media... He will never be the team's "face" here obviously so that takes some burden off him.  Malkin's always said he liked the fact he wasn't the first people came over to in the locker room.  Maybe the change of scenery will be good for helping us on the Kessel Run?  :P  That's one.

No question the Toronto media is unbearable.  For that reason alone I suspect Toronto is on as many no-trade lists as Winnipeg.  Perhaps Kessel's baggage is only related to that, but the way that team caved last year after the new year I'm pretty sure that can't be laid at the feet of the media.  And Kessel (along with Kadri and Phaneuf) is a perceived leader.  To go from a playoff spot to drafting 4th overall takes some serious doing.  Now perhaps Toronto told their players to do that, but then why move a sniper like Kessel?  He's a hell of a hockey player and we're about to find out how much was the media.

Jeff, thanks for the explanation on the losses.  I wasn't really worried about the Wild regardless, I'd think they would be one of the far more stable "small" U.S. franchises.  It is interesting, especially since the city lost the North Stars previously, that there isn't more interest in regular season games.  Winnipeg is different, for any number of reasons.  We were without the franchise for longer than you guys were.  We obviously have far less competition from other sports at higher levels, though we really don't watch much high school hockey, but then our amateur sports have never been as well supported by fans as they are in the U.S.  Canada is just weird that way.  But really it's the prevailing feeling that we could actually lose the team again that seems to drive our season ticket sales.  We're coming onto year three of renewals and the first two years were renewal rates @ 97%.  The 3% not renewed were snapped up in no time at all, but that happens with an 8000 person wait list for season tickets. 

Interesting Kessel in Pittsburgh.  Very talented hockey player but wonder how damaged his attitude is. 

Thought the Granlund contract was pretty nice so well done Wild.

We of course let Frolik walk much to my dismay.  Signed Stafford to 8.7 over two years, so great term and ok AAV but I'd have rather had Frolik for the money and term he got from Calgary than from Stafford.  There's got to be something else going on there with Frolik/Chevy that prevented a signing - could be Fro's agent.  He hosed Chevy on Pavelec so that may have played a role.

Also signed Burmistrov back after a two year KHL hiatus.  Be very interesting to see what happens with him.  He's never going to be a 60 point player but he's got real nice possession numbers and assuming he's playing with Lowry as his center, that could be a sneaky dangerous and frustrating line to play against. 

Oh and Chicago extended Anisomov so that makes that Saad trade look better already though I know the Hawks fans don't feel like it.
