  1. It refers to the practice of cutting the buds of flowers off of certain plants before they have a chance to bloom. This is done to encourage the growth of fruits or leaves instead, which are of more value as food sources.
  2. The mayor of Quebec City, Regis Labeaume, has announced on Monday in a council meeting that the municipality should go name an offer next April looking to the realization of the labor of the Colisee. The candidates will have to engage to respect the norms of the NHL during the labor. So, Quebec takes the forefront in the eventualty where a team in the league should install itself in the national capital. So basically, the city is going to approve a construction bid in a month and they're going to renovate the Colisee to NHL standards so that Quebec City is the leading candidate for the Coyotes. So hey, there we go. Quebec considers itself the Capital of Canada?
  3. Name That Font!

    The script font above. Thanks in advance!
  4. Say it ain't so, Joe

    I don't see that as worrisome. While both are old. she is 13 years younger than him, so that was done solely for estate purposes as women live longer than men on average. Right. The coach who refuses to retire is thinking about his estate. After a grabs jury starts looking into his decade-long coverup of child-rape. I suppose in the list of things we're told by his backers to believe, this isn't the least plausible, but it's close. What's amazing is that his response to te revelations was so jan-fisted and tone-deaf, considering that he knew that day was coming. There's a certain amount of delicious irony when a blowhard can't type "ham-fisted." Must have been using your ham fists! Edit: That's not to say I disagree with your point. It does seem *kind of* sketchy, even for a really old guy with a much younger wife. You were just terrible at making it.
  5. Name That Font!

    Need help with a couple of fonts... looking for the two in the images below. Many thanks to anyone who can look past the subject matter and provide clues! And no, I'm not a Nazi. But this particular combination of fonts, from History Channel's documentary "Third Reich" seems particularly well suited to making propaganda-style pieces.
  6. Why is anyone putting ANY stock into what an owner says about whether his team is moving or not? No owner is willing to risk the bad publicity right now of expressing an interest in leaving while also asking people to buy tickets for a season that may not happen. I guarantee you that no matter what they say publicly, all of these teams are licking their chops at the prospects of moving to LA. Or at the very least, leveraging that possibility for a new stadiumin their present locations.
  7. Just wanted to say... nice font in your icon. Defused! I used it and bought the license from the developer for the title of the novel I wrote and printed off. Awesome font. :)

  8. New UnderArmour South Carolina jerseys

    I'm pretty sure that the red in those pictures will be darkened. Our school colors are still officially garnet and black, not red and black. Unless they decide to redefine what garnet is, the red will probably get darker.
  9. NHL Off-Season 2007

    Good god, the Rangers are going to be fun to watch next year. That is all.
  10. Mine/Hah!

    This response was pointless, unnecessary, and nothing more than flaming. Mods! On topic, I have no idea what anyone is talking about. Shouldn't we all go back to hating Barry Bonds? Yeah! Barry Bonds! What a douchebag!
  11. LeckieMedia Redesign

    Maybe because I'm sitting in an airport as I write this, but both designs scream "airline logo!!!" to me. B looks like a set of lips to me. A flows better, but still gives me that airline vibe.
  12. New NHL Swift Jerseys; A Fans Perspective

    Eh, considering it's you, I should've known it was a joke. It just irks me when people do get their knickers in a twist and give the league a harder time than it's already having. Now, find me a corner. I need to go feel shame somewhere.
  13. New NHL Swift Jerseys; A Fans Perspective

    We give the guys in the NHL offices a lot of flak for just about every :censored:ty decision they make... But what makes you think that charging more for an inferior product is part of anyone's plan to win over more fans? I'm sure that this can be attributed either to increased production costs of the new materials or to general dumbassery on Reebok's part thinking that their name brand and the existence of new jerseys will make everyone want them. And as far as winning over new fans, that IS something the NHL needs to do. Their current deal with NBC pays them nothing at all and they won't get a better deal until their ratings improve somehow. Even ESPN dropped the NHL. The channel that shows trick shot pool and the double dutch world championships decided that their money is better off not being spent on NHL telecasts. The league needs more fans, they've just done a terrible job of finding them so far (but I blame the jersey debacle on Reebok, not them).
  14. ESPN Article CHICAGO -- Oft-injured Chicago Cubs pitcher Mark Prior will miss the entire 2007 season after surgery on his right shoulder, the biggest setback yet in his once-promising career. The 26-year-old Prior had surgery Tuesday by noted orthopedist Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. Andrews also worked on Prior's rotator cuff. Prior has been beset by injuries since his first full season in the majors in 2003, when he almost pitched Chicago into its first World Series since 1945. Prior was not on the Cubs' active roster to start the year and was optioned to Triple-A Iowa after a poor spring training. He instead went to extended spring training in Arizona, but pitched only two innings there April 12 before reporting discomfort in his shoulder. The right-hander went to Dr. Lewis Yocum in California before going to see Andrews, who told Prior last October he had genetic looseness in his shoulder joints. Prior is 42-29 with a 3.51 ERA in the majors. He made just nine starts last year for the Cubs after three trips to the disabled list and took a slight pay cut this season, from $3.65 million to $3.575 million. Prior finished third in NL Cy Young voting in 2003, when he 18-6 with a 4.24 ERA and struck out 245 in 211 1/3 innings. He was the overall No. 2 pick in the 2001 draft by the Cubs.

  15. Ambidextrous Pitcher

    His right arm, as is noted in the article. Also, I want that guy on my team.
