>that dumbass giveaway passing the puck right in front of the net
I've lived in CA my entire life but I've played hockey with a lot of canadians/midwesterners so people give me a hard time about the way I pronounce some words
It's subtle but once you notice it you realize everybody else pronounces everything differently here
It's subtle but it's definitely different from how Californians pronounce it.
It's a lot of words. Mountain, brown, cow, etc.
Just picture a stereotypical Minnesotan and cut that in half. That's pretty much what it's like
Some meme band from Sweden just played, Enforcer, they were breddy gud.
They were supposed to play last and I was gonna leave, but the band I wanna see switched with 'em so they have yet to come on. Fug.
My best friend is from Milwaukee and got me into hockey when he moved here when we were 7. There were like 3 other midwesterners on our team and our coach was from Chicago so basically my whole hockey vocabulary has that accent. I'm on an adult league team now with a bunch of guys from Toronto area now. Over time the accent leaks into your regular vocabulary.
I don't notice it until someone brings it up. Or if someone says something hockey-related with a surfer/valley girl accent
>dedicated to our authentic fans
You can't make this shit up..
To be fair >we've been abused. Our worst season in over a decade, management gets shittier by the day, memes like ice girls, retro jerseys, goal songs, and poster giveaways, all while increasing ticket prices.
People are frustrated because the franchise used to be pretty down to earth and now that hockey is established and has a foothold, it's just a cash cow to the owners/gm.
I chose not to renew my season tickets for the first time in 6 years. I'm still a diehard fan, but I'm not giving them any more money.
I remember when shorks and wings were in the playoffs, the announcers said, "I hope the Red Wings go to the east so I don't have to mention 'Pavel Datsyuk' as much...'
It was pretty cheeky
It just a little sad, as if they feel a need to separate authentic fans from the rest. But it's even worse if it's the way you describe it. I guess it's not really surprising that they act the way they do if hockey is established, but it's still a pretty shitty move. I hope they change their minds some day.
I don't see how anybody could not like Pavel "pane of glass" Datsyuk
The "authentic" thing is just comcast or whatever cable company. The Warriors, Giants, A's, and Raiders (not sure about 49ers and Sacramento Kings) all have "authentic fan" nights with giveaways like posters or shitty sunglasses or something.
Yeah, they been pretty decent thus far this game. I don't mind if commentators are a little bit biased, but it's a fine line and far to many cross it. Glad this guys don't seem to, not too much at least.
Never even heard of tbqh. Might look them up later. Music can really spread around the world quite well.
You have to understand the economic climate of Detroit and Michigan. We love hockey, and the Red Wings are our only successful franchise.
Example: I know a chick who stayed up all night to make Swedish meatballs for Z and Nyquist because she was going to a signing the next day
It's comcast, not really the teams.
Just a gimmick to fill seats.
Warriors are Friday, Sharks are thursday, etc.
>The "authentic" thing is just comcast or whatever cable company. etc.
Okay. Cool. Then they are the ones who are responsible for the Sharks coming off a little sad when that thing pops up.
I don't see how that wouldn't be separating them. If you claim that there are ***** fans, there must also be other fans. But I get your point.
It's from a Sharks broadcast, not a Red Wings one m8.
>Example: I know a chick who stayed up all night to make Swedish meatballs for Z and Nyquist because she was going to a signing the next day
That's pretty cute tbqh, I hope she got them to try them.
I have comcast in michigan. I think it's a regional thing, pandering to California's hipster liberal population
I work at a bar and this artsy chick whos in love with me painted me this.
I honestly give it a 9/10
It is. CSN bay area is shit minus a few good people. Some try to come off as cool and quirky, the rest are geezers from decades ago where all of these sports were completely different yet they refuse to adapt.
You'd be received well just by being american and a nice person. But Zetterberg would get you a little further, no doubt. Not too many care much about NHL though, so don't expect people to know a whole lot about him.
I've got a mile long text message about how being fuck buddies would be 'no big deal'. Which makes me believe if I bang her instead of ignoring her I'll get stabbed in the neck.
This is a good hawkey game desu
Aw man, thats unfortunate. But I get what you're saying, just knowing Swedish athletes would be appreciated eh?
Take the bait. You could have your own yandere wings girl.
Yeah. I guess people in general aren't too interested in NHL because of the games being on in the middle of the night.
Yes, sure. People who are interested in sports can be very proud over swedish athletes that are doing well. But you don't have to learn about that to be interesting to people here, just by being american you're interesting enough.
Are they choking like their team has been doing this season
At least at the Joe they can chant in unison, how could the fans be this bad at cheering. I wasn't sure if they were booing or happy
We like you though. Sometimes.
>tfw have only transitioned between planes in america
Feels not too good.
Would really like to go on a road trip through USA/Canada. Not too interested in big cities like New York and Los Angeles that are pretty popular destinations though.
You should plan that around a game at the Joe.
I'll try to work that in (or the new arena) if I go one day, of course.
>tfw no not-so-itty-bitty-titties to squeeze
Who else comfy in here? Wine and an all stone fireplace
Haven't noticed it before, lel.
Not as comfy as you, but I'm doing fine.
>early in the morning
>woke up just in time for the game
>breakfast and tea
>dark outside for a couple more hours
>harbawwww deepthroating a hot dog then chewing with his mouth open
Kinda cozy. I just have a small gas fire place, and a normal one that I never cleaned so I'm afraid to use.
This anon knows what's up. If you go to bars or restaurants that aren't chains you're immediately treated like family. In most of Michigan from my experience. Feels nice
I don't mean to hate, looks very comfy. But if you're build a fireplace in stone, why arrange the stones like if they were just "tipped" into place? Any building built like that would just crumble.
That's not too unusual in small places here either. Most people don't mind or even like it, only swedish 4chan turbo autists hate it.
I don't go up this early too often (4:30 am). But it can be really nice to do every now and then. Hope you're having a nice evening/night.
>But if you're build a fireplace in stone, why arrange the stones like if they were just "tipped" into place? Any building built like that would just crumble.
Probably to give it a rustic feel.
Yea, I moved to Florida for about 10 years and just moved back over the summer. Michigan is ultimate comfy, didn't realize how much I missed it
This. It was built 40 years ago. They weren't in tune with aesthetics.
Old American houses like the one I'm in are built on point. Not only do we have central air but the fireplace draws heat throughout the entire house.
I love waking up at 5 and listening to the birds chirp and listening to the wind undisturbed. Heavenly.
I did contact work in the keys and I didn't realize how much shoveling snow made me a man.
>weather is 50 and rainy and I'm ina tank and shorts
>locals are wondering how I survive
I understand that. But no old building was built like it. Buildings close to it have all cracks filled with mortar. That looks like it's ready to crumble any second.
With that said, if the people living there like it, that is all that matters.
One can only hope.
Like I said it was built old school. There are literally metric tons of concrete under the house, and the whole place is built in steel and plaster.
Hahahaahhahahahahab wooooooooweee that's a goal right there boys. Lovin it
REEEEEEEEEEE REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE FUCKING WARD AND VLASIC REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
I'm not saying that it won't hold up, I'm saying that it doesn't look very old because of the way it is built. It doesn't look very authentic/rustic.
And I'm not saying that it is wrong in any way, as long as you like it yourself.
Ohh no, I completely understand. The thing is it was built by Italian migrants 40 years ago. And you're right, there's been tons of repair work done. That being said when the apocalypse happens the fuckin fireplace will be all that stands.
BTW if you ever feel like traveling here you've got a home. Lurk here and I'll be around if you need be. (eventually)>>64748456
>That being said when the apocalypse happens the fuckin fireplace will be all that stands.
Don't doubt that a second.
>BTW if you ever feel like traveling here you've got a home. Lurk here and I'll be around if you need be.
Thanks. I'm sure I'll have a couple of questions if it happens, like what seats to try and get etc. But that's somewhere in a not to close future.
There is enough of me for everyone, my friend.
Believe you me, I've got a minute pull at the Joe. I'm a local hockey native and I'm in with the illitches kinda.
Pic related, seats I've been relayed
gg Sharks, your broadcast is a-ok
>I've got a minute pull at the Joe
No idea what this means. But I guess it means that you can get seats pretty quickly/easily?
Looks like pretty good seats!
Sharks, go back to the ocean. You lost. You'll find the salt you need there
Sharks mad as fuck, especially Joe. They are fearful of the prophets justice, yet He still delivers it onto them, peace be upon Him.
