So...  Jump on me..

Pound me in the head…

Our Father who art in Buffalo, hockey be thy name.
Thy will be done, the gold will be won, on ice as well as in the stands.
Give us this day, our hockey sticks, and forgive us our penalties as
we forgive those who cross check against us.
Lead us not into elimination but deliver us to victory.
In the name of the Canadian hockey teams, AMEN…



Come on Canada!! Win the Gold!!!



I’m just a Hockey Fan…
???
:(

[edit] I don’t own these lines… I got them in my mail…

LOL..... I know NOTHING about hockey, Bill. It's not a major sport in the UK, or NZ for that matter.

I did once go to a baseball game in Toronto about 30 years ago. Does that count?

Yep…
That’s if you like the Jay’s…
I never did see a MBL Game…
live…
Do you remember the ticket price ????
OR… an NHL Game, for that matter…
I know I’d sure like to see a Premier League Football Game, some day… That would be something…

:agree:
:)
:laugh:
Maybe, a Manchecter United Game and Whoever…

Can't remember the ticket price. Would've been '77 or '78. Blue Jays vs Baltimore Orioles.

As for football/soccer.... that passed me by too. I was more into guitars and girls at the time. I did go to Wembley station several times - to see gigs (Springsteen, Simon & Garfunkel, Queen......). And I did go to one match there many years later when our local "little" team made it to the final of some league or other. I went with a friend.

My first experience of a live football/soccer match was as a business "jolly" about 10 years ago. We were in Liverpool on business with a big customer and ended up taking him to a match (he was an avid fan). Meal the in trophy room, VIP enclosure, in the bar with the players at the end. Totally wasted on me! And I got to do it twice!!!

Weird, Mark, I used to play hockey tournaments up in Toronto in the late 70s, and if it was during BB season we’d always go see the Jays.

Bill, I hear your prayer. Not a good showing for the Yanks.

Yeah. We were probably at the same game :-)

Y'know that 6 degrees of separation thing... well over here it's 2 degrees. It really is. I guess it's small-town in a small country syndrome but everyone knows someone who knows someone that you know.

Rugby: Real Football :laugh:

We put so much pressure on these Juniors over here…
You know, these kids are gonna be drafted into the NHL. maybe, some of them are already, drafted…
The kids lost to the Americans last year…
They deserved to loose …
They were soundly beaten by you guys…
SO.
this tournament is gonna be their return…
but not by the Americans…


I am unable to see this game…
It’s being carried by the National Sports Cable Networks…
As you are aware, I see TV here by throwing a coat hanger out my window…
The game is being carried by the Cable networks…
I’ll have to wait till the news comes on to hear the score…



I believe the Russians and Our Boys are gonna play the Game of the Tournament…
Gonna be Good Hockey… We’ll have to Wait-and-See…





Bill…

[edit]
The chance to earn Big Money and Play Hockey for a living can do Odd Things to a young kid’s Mind…
To become a millionaire before the age of 22 can make ya play beyond your imagination…

[edit again] I hear you phoo… I don’t know much about how that game is played… except it can injure you Big Time…

bill, I bet you can watch it on line - or at least get a game blog or something.

It’s gonna be on in another 15 minutes… Wouldn’t it nice to get the opportunity to see it… I should browse around… I have satellite radio… It should be up there somewhere… ????

Bill…

I think I found the link…

In Canada, anyway… I’ll be looking… I think…

Saw the Jays at the Rogers Center the summer before last. Don't remember the cost but it wasn't too crazy. Timed it so that I could see Halladay pitch (first game after the all-star break) against the Sox.
Two weird things about that game:
1. More fans were wearing Sox jerseys than Jays jerseys.
2. I thought the seats were really high up, until later that day when I was looking down at the stadium from the CN tower.

Hi Gents:

This is the link that was sent to me at my E-Mail address…
It says it’s only good in Canada…
So-They-Say…
This should open a Scxreen…




Bill…

[edit] Ain’t that CN Tower something ? On a clear day they say you are able to see across the Lake (Ontario) to the USA Shore…

This Hi-Speed connection is something else… The pre-game show is on now… It’s streaming great… :) :p :laugh: AND NO Coat hanger… MaN…

Bill…

oops, no we ruined it for Bill, all of that on-line content, he’ll never visit our forum again… :)

Game ON… 1 - 0 For the good guys… lol… hehehe…

Thanks TomS… I don’t know what they feed those guys… I don’t think there’s a kid amongst them…

Bill…

I could see the Russians coming on late in the period…
However, it’s gonna take 3 goals to beat our Boys…
That was a heart-breaker of the the Russians…
I hope it don’t go to the Canucks Heads.



Bill…

This game style sure makes the NHL Boys look slow-and-lazy…

Yeah, that’s one thing about the amateurs, they play like they mean it every single second.

That was the Gimmie Period…
Look out Canucks…
:)
:p
:laugh: This second period is gonna be the serious one…


Lots of hitting…





Bill…

I got my fingers-and-toes … crossed… :)
