Probably true, saw a stat on the NBA the other night, winner of Game 5 wins the series 93% of the time.  Stoopid penalty late in the game might cost the Flames the Cup.  

Khabibulin was an animal

They'd have needed to hypotheticall have been able to score in those last 4 minutes for the penalty to cost them the cup - but agreed.  It might as well have.

And on Khabibulin being an animal...that glove save in the last couple of seconds just about gave me a heart attack - incredible.

I expect Fedotenko and Kubina to be back for game 5 given the two days rest - anyone heard anything?

Yeah, that was a nasty face plant into the boards. I thought he left half his face on the boards & that gash didn't look too good at the bench. Hope he has a speedy recovery.

Now add a nasty faceplant into the boards on Lecavaleir for a major to rob your team of any chance of coming back in the final minutes...  talk about dumb.

Khabibulin does it again rebounding after the loss.

Now it's 2-2 and headed back to Tampa.  Game 5 is a must win for either team - whoever takes it will take the series.

And Brad Richards has his record 7th game winning goal in the playoffs - and the Bolts are now 30-0-2 when he scores a goal this season.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: OTC Visual Carded Checklist
« on: May 31, 2004, 06:11 PM »
Wow, those look cool altogether like that!  Nice work Scott.

This just infuriates me even more that they didn't start up with the OTC design at the beginning of this entirely OT focused year, but at least they're recarding a lot of the early 2004'ers it looks like...   8)

Yeah, I know not everyone digs 'em, but I sure as hell do!   ;)

Best packaging ever.  Too bad I'll only be buying 7 of them though...  Damn shame.

Nice game by the Flames tonight, flipped back and forth betwixt this and hard core porn NBA and the game.  Looks like the home ice jinx is over for the Flames!

Nah, they got back to .500 - and the Lightning have to get used to the altitude...They looked just fine the first half of the game, then simply ran out of gas...didn't race to the puck, didn't look like they cared anymore.  I predicted above that the flames would probably win game 3, but Lightning would bounce back for game 4 - then they'll take game 5 at home.  

Although I am concerned about Fedotenkov and that nasty nasty face-first header into the boards he took...hopefully he's okay.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Official Bad Movie Thread
« on: May 29, 2004, 01:53 PM »
Okay...

to KNEEL BEFORE ZOD...

I cannot relate or say any of those movies do not belong. Please consider that we are talking about paying money to go see these in the theaters. If we are not with our kids or a spouse, we are out of there! To comment briefly (highly opinionated btw) on your choices of movies you think do not belong...
Airheads - good cable movie at best...
Bio Dome - the only good scene in BD is when 'Squirrel' is trying to break down his Baldwin's last meal based on smell. Beyond that, pure suck.
Child’s Play - Bad horror flick? Cult movie? Chuckie is novelty horror at best and stupid at best.
Dark Man - Can't even comment because I made it through maybe 1/3 of the movie and I'm a comicbook fan.
Father of the Bride - With daughter or spouse or friend that with daughter that can relate it's fine. Martin Short is too exaggerated and it's just not a good theater movie.  
From Dusk to Dawn - This is in my worst top ten. I was mortified when I watched it because I expected such amazing things. I can't even think about it, it makes me so upset.
Ghost Dad - Cosby is good for TV and stand-up. How many movies have you seen him in? Ghost Dad is proof why.
Harry and the Harrisons (I assume you meant Hendersons?) - I di mean Hendersons. My bad. Good for TV. A sit-com on the big screen. Doesn't work.
Hero (The Jet Li film?!?!!  Or is there another movie called Hero that's no good?) - I'll look into that. I am looking to contact Tony soon and I will confirm it's origin and reason.
Problem Child - Annoying to the point I wanted to rip my eyes and ears out and off.
Weekend at Bernies - It's clever for maybe 2 scenes with dead Bernie. Then it just gets old... Quick!

It's Pat and all 4 of Tyderium's are winners and in and will be added soon. I'll look into the Guttenberg site Scott. Good call and I agree, the guy is the worst. That may make Short Circuit an addition...

Thanks! I was crying over the barrel of monkeys and the Steve Guttenberg stuff.


Okay, in my haste I missed the qualifier about it being a movie you'd pay to see in theaters.  In that case, I withdraw my objections to all of those except for From Dusk Till Dawn and Father of the Bride.

I disagree with the following (not that I think they're the greatest of all time or anything, just that they're either fun or enjoyable):

Airheads
Bio Dome
Child’s Play
Dark Man
Father of the Bride
From Dusk to Dawn
Ghost Dad
Harry and the Harrisons (I assume you meant Hendersons?)
Hero (The Jet Li film?!?!!  Or is there another movie called Hero that's no good?)
Problem Child
Weekend at Bernies

I'd like to submit the worst movie of all time:

"It's Pat"

HOw could they not win at home?  TB didn't get this far and have a good regular season by not being a good team.  I really like the Lightning.  Let's hope Calgary can take both at home.  

I won't be suprised if they win game 3 at home, Tampa will have to adjust to the air pressure and all...But I'm confident that they'll at least split the games in Calgary.

We've got ourselves a series!!

Nasty play tonight from both teams, but especially from Calgary.  Twisting St. Louis' head off and breaking a stick on a crosscheck over Kubina's back...  Disappointing.

Blah.  There's no 'fair' about it.  If Calgary wins, it's because they're the better team - and that's fair.  If Tampa wins, it's for the same reasons, and it's still fair.

Last night Tampa played like a team coming off a tough series, and the Flames played like a well rested team - and pulled out a much deserved victory.  They're definitely a very very good team and are no fluke.  They were also faster than Tampa in their passing and in regular moving around the ice.    They have also been an excellent road team - so a win was not to be a suprise.

If Tampa can't win tomorrow - I expect the flames to win in 5 or 6.

If Tampa can even it up tomorrow, they'll be very much alive given the Flames tendency to play worse at home than on the road.

Plus, the Lightning just got their first look at a very very different team than the one they spent the last 2 weeks playing.  Now they'll have something to adjust to.   I still expect a close series - but I guess I won't be too suprised if Calgary cruses.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Supersize Me - the movie.
« on: May 25, 2004, 04:57 PM »
I believe in personal responsibility.  

I saw an interview with Morgan Spurlock on CNBC last night - and the main point that he made was that his entire movie, from top to bottom, is all about personal responsibility.

I work in the art department of a visual effects/animation studio in Dallas.  We do lots of commercial work, and lots of work with Hasbro.  We're about to wrap production on the full length GI Joe movie Valor Vs. Venom.

I started there a year ago as a lowly intern working for free, but am now on a 1 year contract and have gotten a chance to learn and start working my way up.   Now I'm working more hands on in preproduction work for commercials, making animatics, etc...In july I'll be running outpost editing on....ready for this...

Three Star Wars commercials.  

Eventually I hope to learn a lot of editing, compositing and visual effects.

Go Bolts!

My first trip was at age 16, I went on a small three show tour with my friend's band...from florida up to upstate NY.

My second trip was the good one though - the next year at age 17, we drove up to Pittsburgh to go white water rafting, but it was really a detour because the entire point of the trip was to go to the Smithsonian and see the Magic of Myth exhibit.

It was an awesome trip.
