Down Goes Brown on that Daniel Alfredsson quote:
"Go ahead and write it, I guarantee I’ll touch his cup."
The Fill in the Blank post is now the stuff of legends and will have to go on some PPP Greatest Hits Compilation that can be ordered in a Time Life series at 2 am. So many many gems came out of this thread.
If cheesesteak were vagina I wouldn’t be a virgin. Go Flyers!
Chemmy in response to a computer literate Flyers fan (what?) posting video of the 2004 playoff series:
I have to question the authenticity of that video. Sami Kapenen doesn’t remember that happening.
More goodness after the jumpfloridaLEAF with a visual punchline:
The battery in my monitored ankle bracelet gave out – Go Flyers!
Hey Domi, you’re lucky this glass is in between us or I’d … bleearggh Go Flyers!
OdinMercer, y'all know him right?
I root for the Flyers because the people in Ottawa said I was too smart to be a Sens fan – Go Flyers!
DGB with another zinger regarding Dennis Leary in a Leafs shirt:
I think he stole that shirt from Bill Hicks.
kidkawartha possibly puts me in my place, is hilarious while doing so:
The "Argentinian woman of the night" is not, actually, a woman of the night. She is a professional international commodities broker who is "soul mate" to the cheater in question, which raises q’s about how he’s going to reconcile with his wife- will he have his own soul exorcised so that he can be a soulless, zombie-like empty shell of a man? Which would, of course, make him a shoo-in for the ’12 nomination- Sandford/Palin- you investigate, we decide! . And remember folks, marriage is now between one man, one woman, and one beautiful Argentinian chiquita on the side.
Also, Carlton the Bear is a nihilist and an opium addict- how else could a magnificent wild animal tolerate captivity and the lack of a Stanley Cup without snapping and killing an entire section of visiting Sens fans?
Finally, this shows just how big and far reaching this community from AndrewBourne:
In the event you're having a bad day, read this thread and remember the day we truly embraced truculence, swagger and coined a bunch of nicknames to boot. It's been sung many times before but with this team, "it's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life...and I'm feeling good."
