  1. Doesn't karma pay off in the next life though? Anybody think Perry will get suspended for tangling with the ref at the end of the game? The rule book is pretty clear that that kind of thing is a three game ban and we've already seen that enacted this year.
  2. Different impacts involved, but the same holds true for hockey helmets. All of the cutting edge passing and innovations feature on the sides, back, and top. I believe it has to do with the mounts that hold the cages in each sport, but that seems like something that can be worked around for sure.
  3. I've always liked that logo of the two league birds fighting over the ball.
  4. CCM released them in their vintage collection sometime in the past few months. Big sellers.
  5. But what if some poor soul only saw one Yankees game ever and they weren't wearing their normal helmet!?!?!
  6. I heard the ESPN top play came from the Rowdies game last night. Neither here nor there but thought it was kinda neat to see it live.
  7. Whimsical and unrealistic come to mind.
  8. And they're not good because of them.
  9. Would not be surprised at all to see more cheap shots in the third period from noted idiots Kassian, Lucic, and/or Nurse. Never noticed in their wallowing at the bottom, but the Oilers are pretty darn unlikable.
  10. I wonder how big a reaction the first Bucs change would have received if this place were around like is today for it. That would be an interesting one to read.
  11. Those things are $100!? Can't imagine how that's justified.
  12. On the eve of this grand spectacle, I think I'm going with Washington, Pittsburgh, New York, Boston, Chicago, St. Louis, Anaheim, Edmonton as my first round picks. Some thoughts: It's unfortunate for Columbus and Montreal (more so for the former) that a good to great season is rewarded by meeting a better team in the first round. While both of these teams can certainly win, I think it's these two who will be most disappointed and it's not really through any fault of their own. Boston - Ottawa will be a dreadful series. Clearly the worst two teams that made the playoffs. Toronto has to be kicking themselves that a 2-0 lead on the last day couldn't hold up (not a good sign for the playoffs either) so that they could avoid Washington. I'm not as high on Edmonton as a lot seem to be. Obviously McDavid is great but if you can bring him down just a bit that takes away so much from the team. All of the sudden Maroon isn't really a factor, or any of the secondary guys. Lately the successful playoff teams have rolled 2-3 scoring lines and I think that approach still works better than one super line. Also they benefited greatly from an obscene number of games where they were rested and the visitor was playing the second of two in two nights coming from Calgary. Still, they get by the first round. I suppose we'll see Chicago - Pittsburgh in the Final and another Penguins Cup. I would like to see the Capitals win over, uhh...let's say Nashville. Subban having a huge payoff would be fun to see.
  13. I know that they are just mainly variations on a theme, but I feel the original Jeff Gordon paint job is the best.
  14. Bingo. It wasn't even a bad company or boss. Just unrealistic demands. The only answer to having above average metrics (against your past performance or against your team) was to do it again next week/month/period. Two below average weeks in a row? You bet that's a paddlin'. A big part of my frustration was that the training and job description was heavily weighed towards service and helping out our customers/members and once you were on the floor everything was sell sell sell. A guy wants to know why his home owner's policy is jumping up (yay Florida!) and I'm supposed to sell him something else? Get outta here. It was a huge stresser in my life and directly contributed to me being way below my best me personally. Ruined a (already somewhat flawed) relationship. Wasted two years of my life. I have ever felt better than I did sitting down for lunch the day I quit, felt so much weight off of my back. I distinctly remember setting my alarm for the normal work day the next morning just so I could wake up, bask in the glow of never going back there, and going back to sleep. But, don't let that ruin it for you. Not a typical experience perhaps but I've heard many similar stories personally and on the Internet. I sincerely wish you luck going into it. Some people can absolutely make it work and I tip my cap to them.
  15. My experience in a call center led to being a bitter, depressed, moribund individual for a span of about 18 months. I was only happy from 5 on Friday to about 3 on Sunday. And I was well compensated to boot. You're not gonna like it.
