      Oh thought you might be.  It's so trashy good.  And it's on almost every night so that's awesome.  Just thought you might be watching it too.  It's so bad.  And good.  :lol:

      Me too re The Bachelorette!

      Almond cake is very awesome! It's my favorite dessert from Whole Foods. 

  2. Hmmm, thoughts on this?

      @Coconuts you don't want to see Petey ventilate their AHL quality blueline?

    3. Coconuts

      I mean, yes.. but then I have to deal with the obnoxious Leafs fans and media bombardment and I'm honestly not sure it's worth it

      If the border restrictions are still place, its certainly a good possibility. I'm for it if it means missing less hockey.

  3. Wow Edmonton

      You don't need to promote hockey in Toronto though.  That would be a waste of money and time to try and sell hockey to Toronto, or Calgary.

      No, what they do instead is try to drum out hatred/rivalry amongst the Cdn 7, whilst funneling down excess Cdn profit to their F***ing sad-sack, disinterested, fair-weather(sunbelt) trash.

       

      Has worked like a charm for decades now.

      Wonder when Bettman cuts Edmonton a break and gives them an NHL team.  Demote the Soilers to the AHL where they belong.

  4. Petey and Stech just around the corner from my place this morning.  Neighbourhood just increased in swag points by 500.

      Jealous of you Vancouverites that way.  A friend of mine was going to his car in the underground parkade and he got to meet Henrik Sedin by chance, and got the selfie with him.

      Hits really close to home for him due to his family.  Say what you want about Burke, but he's always been a stand-up guy.  Hope this kid excels in the NHL.

  6. WOOHOO.  Just got word that my black skate Petey jersey should arrive today!   Yea!!!  

  7. Golden Shites showing the same level of respect for their fellow players as Bruins do/did.  Good on Green for going high when they went low.

      I'm surprised Reaves played game 2.  That penalty could have cost them the series.

      It will be interesting to see if anything happens for the OKC - HOU game.  It's one thing to boycott and potentially forfeit a game when you are up 3 - 1, but a slightly different story when the series is tied 2 - 2.

      thats ridiculous. The guy was clearly too emotional, knew it, and pulled himself out before he said something dumb. He should have just let fly, it cost him anyway.

      I wonder if Torts considers that a fair trade-off and will consider this an option for the future?

  12. Hi, my name's Deb and I'm a hockeyholic.  So I sat out in my lil cold hot tub on the deck...reading a book about hockey while, in the background, also half listening to 650 (until they had Trevor Linden on and the book was put away).  

    1. NucksIn50

      NucksIn50

      How long was Trev on for? Did he comment on the series win by the boys? Miss Trev, he should be in the bubble with the boys, shame....

      THERE IS NO CURE. 

       

  13. My neighbour just said:  I didn't hear your cowbell for the game.  Then I had to explain the "family first" reason.  They have no cable and keep track via my "updates".  LOL

      a lot of people don't have cable anymore. netflix/amazon/hulu/disneyplus/crave cost less than 50 bux

      Most I know don't have cable (my daughter being one of them).  I pay $160 for cable and internet.  WAYYY too much.  But I can't live without my sports channels.

      I have a Roku, and I get channels through the antenna. It’s great. I had cable years ago, and gosh it was expensive!

  14. Got the news Dad's little brother passed away suddenly last night...very unexpectedly.

    Enjoy every second of this life because you just never know when it's time. 

    Rest well, Uncle Bill.

      Down by the River

      @TNucks1 Lu apparently didn't like Hordi at all (or at least was really annoyed by him). Hordi was being a loudmouth in the locker room and Luongo apparently said to the team not to worry because he would make sure that in his contract he would ensure that Hordi wasn't going to be part of the team moving forward. He was traded like the next day. 

       

      He also threatened to be all over the Sedins when he signed in Edmonton. He got taken out by Ballard and wasn't really heard of again.

      That's the canucks' ninth strait win against the blues in the post season going all the way back to quarterfinal against the blues in 03. And just so your all aware I only replied with the heavy blues comment to see what would happen I was wondering what that was about and I thought let's see what happens 

  17. Ex invited us to a BBQ today...my son and I both:  "if the Canucks are in a game 5...we can't make it".

    Just finished making an Asian sesame pasta salad for the deal...looks like we're going!

      @Kurisu   It's one that someone gave me that I tweaked a bit.  (I sort of change it up when I make it depending on ingredients on hand...I didn't have chilli oil this time so I used a bit of a sweet chilli sauce I had instead, etc.

       

    3. debluvscanucks

      @brilac   I remember that...I too was torn but, for me, it was a no brainer.  I watched hockey and switched over in intermission...back/forth.

    4. debluvscanucks

      debluvscanucks

      Here's the recipe:

       

      1 (16 ounce) package bow tie pasta (I had none so this time I used spaghettini)

       

      ½ cup vegetable oil (I used less)

      ⅓ cup soy sauce (I only use Kikkoman)

      ⅓ cup rice vinegar

      1 teaspoon sesame oil

      2-3 tablespoons white sugar

      Dash of chilli oil (I ran out so I used about a tbsp of sweet chili sauce I had...I've also used chili flake)

      ½ teaspoon ground ginger

      ½ teaspoon garlic powder

      ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

       

      3 cups shredded, cooked chicken breast meat

       

      ⅓ cup chopped fresh cilantro

      1 bunch chopped green onion 

      1 red bell pepper & 1/2 green pepper

      1 grated carrot

       

      Boil and drain the pasta...set aside.  Lightly toast the sesame seeds...also set aside.

       

      Mix the oil(s), soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, ginger, garlic and pepper together and let sit in fridge.

       

      Chop veggies (I cut them into very small pieces and grate the carrot).

       

      Mix the dressing into the pasta then stir in the veggies & chicken and chill for at least 2-3 hours before serving.

       

      Top with toasted sesame seeds.

       

      (You can omit the chicken for a vegetarian option)

       

  18. Watching the game all over again.  Woo!

  20. Teams with the first goal in these playins/offs are 25-8 so far.  Matters.

  21. Bleeding throat is back.  Seems to coincide with hockey.  

    I will NOT stop cheering for my team.  I'll cowbell harder to save my throat, but it's just instinct to react/cheer.

    Just hope I don't die before I see them win the cup.  LOL

      Juice, Burkie, and Friedman is the best panel Sportsnet can trot out.  No anti-Canuck bias from those 3 either.

      @King Heffy no it doesnt

       

      I just think everyone who is a staunch anti trumper just gets way too caught up in the "basic human compassion, kindness, fairness" its politics its not a big group hug, a lot of big social programs are a net negative. 

       

      Covid situation... just look at how horrible all the blue states have handled it, take a look at the Gov of Ny and their Mayor. Look at deaths in Ny/Cali compared to Florida or Arizona(red states) 

       

      I just hate how any relative support for Trump is just instant omg youre a terrible person... You dont even know the person you are attacking, its madness

    4. debluvscanucks

      debluvscanucks

      How can you be "too" caught up in basic human compassion, kindness, fairness?

      It may not be a group hug but it's a position that's supposed to represent the people, not self interests.  

      A guy who likes to yell "you're fired" at people and who points fingers in blame rather than problem solves is far too caught up in ego.

       

      We're all allowed an opinion...so this is mine.
