  1. [PTO] Gilbert Brule with Flames

    He was a lot of fun to watch when he played for the Giants.
  2. NFL thread

    Thank you, brother. Good to know i'm not alone. Lol!
  3. Rate The Last Movie You Saw - 2

    Yup, he was the hotshot player who wouldn't give up his number to Bobby Rayburn, baby!
  4. If you could choose any former Canucks coach...

    I feel like I would have been the type of player Quinn would have loved and he seemed like the type of coach who you would go through a brick wall for. I voted the Big Irishman!
  5. NFL thread

    Man, I have avoided most of the online forums regarding NFL chat. I'm a die hard Raiders fan. When I woke up to the news of Khalil Mack being traded, I didn't know how to react, still really don't. The life of a Raiders fan the last 16 years has NOT been easy. The constant rotation of coaches, coordinators, and players makes it hard to get excited every year, but this year was different. Then trading Mack. I understand the argument from both sides. Watching him ball out with Chicago was tough. Like your cute gf dumping you, then gets hot, THEN dates a guy who is better looking with a bigger hammer...all while you watch. Maybe a 2 or 3 win season and Nick Bosa? Wishful thinking? $^#@.

    I still remember Del Toro as the young hot shot ball player in 'The Fan' with Snipes/De Niro...He even looked old and worn out then. It was like he turned 25 and started to look 50, now that he's 50, he just looks his age hahaha.
  7. What Are You Currently Reading?

    Stephen King's "It" Not much of a fiction guy but my father in law told me to try and Stephen King book as I might enjoy the style of writing. He wasn't wrong, the way King can tell a story is amazing, even an old northern BC guy with the reading level of a 7th grader, can follow along and really visualize the story. The book is gigantic and it will probably take me another 3 years to read, but hey! I'm enjoying it!
  8. GDT - 2018 Canucks' Young Stars Tournament

    Ya, got caught watching a little. On another note: I like MacEwen. I went out for a puff and missed 2 other scraps earlier?

    Chatfield out there yapping. Woooo!
  10. GDT - 2018 Canucks' Young Stars Tournament

    OMFG what a snipe. Dahlen is looking sick, too. Wow....I love it!
  11. I should watch more Pixar movies... Out of the ones I have watched it was a close one between Toy Story and WALL-E, but I went with WALL-E. I still haven't watched Finding Nemo! Yikes!
  12. What Are You Currently Playing?

    Started playing PUBG again like a sucker. I play with 2 of my buddies and we are horrible at it, but it's just fun mindlessly looting and getting owned by better squads.

    Mannnn...I'm starting school 4 September, I am starting firefighting training 11 September and NOW i'm being asked to re-join the Junior B team I helped coach last year. It was a rough go, we came in to a very bad situation with players that were brought in under the old regime. This season is different, the team is in a full rebuild and I am actually helping with the evaluations this weekend. My buddy is the new head coach, he AC'd with me last year, and really wants me to come back and help with the defense. I have so much on my plate this fall and when I did it last season, it is a very big commitment. I haven't ever done any post-secondary so I know I will have lots of reading/homework, but I also don't want to let my buddy down AND I really enjoy coaching and feel I am good at it with what I bring to the table as a coach. I keep asking people to talk me out of it, and I feel like if I work hard enough I could do all 3 and not want to suck start a shot gun, I just don't know! BTW - RE: earlier random post about Guitar. Turns out I 'won' it. I will be the new owner of a Gibson J-35 guitar. The guy who did the giveaway actually turned out to be pretty chill and we have been emailing back and forth old Army stories. Pretty cool!
  14. Benning is doing a great job! (Discussion)

    Imagine being in your early 20's, fresh from school, starting work at a company where you will be groomed to climb the ranks because you have the education and determination. Only to be called a bust employee a week into your job from some guy who got his GED in his 30's and works in the mail room. Kind of how it feels to me when people label 20 years olds who haven't even went through the full development motions or stepped foot on pro ice yet. Wish I could eat the stuff I plant in my garden every year as soon as I plant it, but how dumb would that be? Nothing has grown! Give it some time, people.

    Nah, I meant corrections. I had to do something with my career that has transferable skills from my previous employment. I'm really hoping to make some good connections when i'm in school and HOPE I can find something local once i'm finished.
