  1. FYI: The main arteries of the Pacific Flyway for migratory birds (including ducks and geese) skirt just around the LA Metro Area. http://library.fws.gov/Pubs/pacific_flywaymap.pdf
  2. SARCASM Pronunciation: 'sär-"ka-z&m Function: noun Etymology: French or Late Latin; French sarcasme, from Late Latin sarcasmos, from Greek sarkasmos, from sarkazein to tear flesh, bite the lips in rage, sneer, from sark-, sarx flesh; probably akin to Avestan thwar&s- to cut 1: a sharp and often satirical or ironic utterance designed to cut or give pain tired of continual sarcasms 2a: a mode of satirical wit depending for its effect on bitter, caustic, and often ironic language that is usually directed against an individual b: the use or language of sarcasm this is no time to indulge in sarcasm Synonym: see WIT The dictionary is your friend.
  3. He's right. Art Ross didn't complete the hat trick until 1938 (as coach of the Bruins)
  4. My guess would be Lester Patrick. WRONG! Come on guys, I'm sure someone knows the only person to ever have his name on the Stanley Cup as a player, coach and GM. Art Ross, of course. Player: Kenora Thistles Coach and GM: Boston Bruins
  5. How about the Louisiana "9 winning seasons before tanking and folding the next season" IceGators
  6. Who cares, LSU isn't in the tournament!
  7. Since when is SI accurate at predicting anything?
  8. Continuing on that train of thought, I found a handful of similarities betwixt the '04 Flames and the '06 Oilers. Both teams were in the bottom three seeds (6th Flames, 8th Oilers) Both teams defeated the Detroit Red Wings, and then the San Jose Sharks, in that order (2nd & 3rd round for Calgary, 1st & 2nd round for Edmonton). Both teams have a place where people congregate post-game that involves a color (Red Mile, White (actually Whyte) Avenue. http://boards.sportslogos.net/index.php?sh...ndpost&p=543248 All you need to know.
  9. Cory Stillman puts Carolina up 3-2 with a power play goal to win Game 5 4-3. Can they finish the Sabres off Tuesday night?
  10. Well, the Remparts pick up the Memorial Cup with a convincing 6-2 win. Guess it proves the point you don't need defence to win in the QMJHL...
  11. *Back in the day when I had to hike 10 miles uphill (both ways! through 12ft snowdrifts! in the summer!) to search for my data on a Gopher server...* Sarcasm has been the hallmark of Internet discussions since the early days of USENET, I never had a problem deciphering it, even in Middle School. Perhaps some people just need an enema?
  12. Except all the people who, before today, talked more about Ruth's 714 than Aaron's 755.
  13. The original poster in question (BTW, you may want to requote me as I just edited my post.)

Besides, as the Soviets would say, there is no Pravda in the Izvestia, and there is no Izvestia in the Pravda... Anyways, I love your mixing up of political concepts (Checks and balances has nothing to with the press v. government, but rather the balance of the powers and responsibilities of the three branches of the federal government. Read the Federalist Papers, please.) and your naivetity (Reporters reporting without bias? Surely you jest!). Rather refreshing to be honest. We didn't have widespread use of embedded journalists until really Vietnam (reporters on the ground in World War II were from the Army and Marine Corps were for the most part from the respective branches of service, not from media outlets, though there were exceptions. Everyone else sat in London [Edward R. Murrow anyone?] or San Diego, Honolulu, or Sydney and waited for the news to come from the military [After censors checked it out, HO NOES, CENSORSHIP!]), and there sure wasn't widespread instances of war crimes in any of those wars.
  15. Hi, . My name is John. Nice to meet you. I'm sure we'll be the BEST of friends... Add "Warmongering" to that quote somewhere, and it wouldn't look out of place in an article from Pravda back in the Bad Old Days...
  16. You sir are a genius. Add me to the list of people who think the stick logo is overrated. Just because people in Vancouver lap it up like milk at a cat show doesn't mean it's great, it just means it's terribly easy to delude large numbers of people in the Vancouver area...
  17. Hup Holland Hup! *very* impressive all-around!
  18. I *had* a great image of Jan Lasak wearing it, but I can't find it anymore. For shame. Regardless, I redid it with the colours Nike uses for Ice Hockey, the Slovak Football Association patch on the right sleeve, and the familiar striping on the shoulders and the chest (sorry for the large file size. I tried to compress it, but no dice...) Here's their present jerseys for comparison
  19. I've never done a Soccer Kit concept before, so I decided to give it a whirl with everyone's favourite nation for hockey forwards, Slovakia! They almost made the World Cup this go-around, and are hoping for a better showing for South Africa in 2010. I tried to duplicate their older Hockey Jerseys (late 1990s) in terms of sleeve striping Though to be honest, I always thought a copy of their Salt Lake City Jerseys would do well on a Soccer shirt... Guess that'll be Phase 2... C+C, as always.
  20. Why? He didn't do anything? Everything about the play was kosher until Barrett decided to do something completely retarded to Pierzynski. What doesn't seem right is a guy getting fined $2000 for being smacked in the jaw and walking away, reputation or not.
  21. Oilers Win! Oilers Win! Now it's Carolina's turn to win to prove my geographical predictions correct!
  22. *Hypnotizes Canucks Front Office* "You will trade Betruzzi for Alfredsson straight up.
  23. Maybe you could try a deeper purple instead of the black as a nod to the original colours of the team.
  24. Whilst I'm sure you have no control over it, the colours need to be changed. Everytime I see those colours, I have to squint because they're too bright. They would be a lot better if they were toned down. Regardless, I think the logo above is the best one you've got going.
  25. Show him a clip of Randy Moss pretending to moon someone...
