  1. WOMP WOMP. You are absolutely correct. 😄
  2. What great lake is Montreal on? Ottawa? A better name would be the St. Lawrence Division since the Great Lakes dump into the St. Lawrence Seaway.
  3. Just get your first row straight and use spacers between tiles and... don't sweat it if they're off just a bit; you'll be the only one to notice.
  4. Yeah, driveways are freakin' expensive. For a rank amateur (first time doing wall tile) I'm pretty happy with the way the tile came out, especially the grout and caulk lines.
  5. My wife bought a package of the Broadway shows coming through Fort Worth playing at Bass Hall, so there will be more. Luckily my daughter-in-law and her friend will be taking the tickets for Frozen; no desire to see that.
  6. George Strait was one of the first artists to play at Dickies Arena here in Fort Worth in November 2019 just before the pandemic. I thought it would be a good show to see but tickets were ridiculous and sold out in seconds. They were even more ridiculous on the resale market. It was... eventually. I think it was a sold-out show.
  7. Not exactly a concert, but the wife and I went to see The Book of Mormon last night. It was a fun romp. This is the ceiling of the theater.
  8. And if Olofsson's lack of effort continues, he can have Lazy This is the way. I personally find individual goal songs amateur hour. The nursing home called... they want you back there right away. 😉 A further not on Lazy: When I played intramural hockey in college, Lazy was actually one of my psych-up songs before games.
  9. I agree except for the last bit: A team cannot call their timeout during an icing under the current rule; I assume @Marvin means that would apply here. I still don't like the proposed rule though, which is basically what it was prior to the minor penalty for delay of game (although the players could change).
  10. I would keep zone entries the same, but zone exits would be at the center line. This would encourage more scoring I think since it would b harder to clear the zone. In OT, I would make it a line violation if a team passes/shoots/"loses control" of the puck from the offensive zone (without the other team touching it) to the neutral zone: Once they possess the puck in the offensive zone they have to keep it there. If not, it becomes a faceoff in their defensive zone. The point of this rule is to keep one team from hogging the puck in OT. I think the Sabres generally benefit with the current rule but that won't always be the case.
  11. For those who don't think UPL is any good: He led the Sabres in wins last year, a mark that set the Sabres rookie goalie record. It's a bygone conclusion that Levi will break that record this season, but we'll see. I don't think UPL is as awful as some people say. If the Sabres had won as often with the rest of the goalie corps as they did with UPL they would have made the playoffs. I think he's exactly what Kevyn hoped he was getting in Comrie.
  12. When I worked at Roma's on Genesee Street in the 1970s the dough was made by 16- and 17-year olds according to the recipe of, and supervised by, Ricci, the owner (or his brother-in-law who was the de-facto kitchen manager). We made some of the best pizza dough around, if I do say so myself.
  13. Yes, the franchise has moved.
  14. Why didn't he sign earlier OMG OMG OMG
  15. Kinda like the Sabres did with Taylor Hall, eh? It's all speculative anyway, but I just don't see him as a huge upgrade.
  16. I think you're overselling Tarasenko. I don't think he's clearly an upgrade over Olofsson, especially with his injury history which seems to be impacting his play still. In fact I think if you put Tarasenko in Quinn's spot he wouldn't score as much as Olofsson in Quinn's spot. I wouldn't be surprised to see Tarasenko miss 25% or more of the season due to injury.
  17. Right. There you go again, oozing the moral superiority of your choices. It's off-putting.
  18. .... while paying ***** wages and diverting the money into their own pockets when they already have more than they will ever spend. I can respect the woman who opens a local bakery and puts several people to work but I can't respect someone who makes billions of the labor of others but doesn't pay them fairly for their contributions.
