    OK things have boiled over on the politics. This is a very emotional and heated topic, but we're trying not to be twitter on here. It is impossible not to let political leanings creep into posts on this topic, but it IS possible not to take blatant swipes and naked attacks on a political figure or viewpoint. 

     

    So, I've hidden everything related to attacking Trump or any other political figure for the last few pages. I was slow to the draw. 

     

    Resorting to blatant political attacks is intellectually lazy IMO. Everyone on here is smart enough to make their points without going there. Please do that. 

    Can’t all this be solved over a Zoom ice cream 🍦  “social”? 🤷🏻‍♂️😎

    Seconded. I believe we're about to witness and in many cases partake in a profound and lasting shift in how we do pretty much everything. Here's hoping things don't get too dreadful in the meantime. Stay put, folks. It's the smartest play.

    Yep, things will change. Things have changed. We’ll get through it though. Keep your heads up and stay positive

    Dont they usually have divisional opponents for the outdoor games? Jackets would be a good one since they also have never played an outdoor game

    Well, the Kings (Pacific) and Avs (Central) just played outdoors and they are not divisional rivals. The Blackhawks have played Pittsburgh and Boston (cross-conference) in outdoor series in recent years.  I don't believe there is any specific convention or relationship required between opponents.  I would love for us to play a totally unexpected opponent.


  4. I follow the NBA loosely, nothing like I did back in the 1990's.  Either way, this is absolutely devastating news not only to the sports world, but from the human side of things. Mr. Bryant was a great athlete, a father, a husband, and an overall class act.  RIP

    This. Copying and pasting a comment: "Chicago got called for too many men with 19.2 to go in OT, but the clock went down to 18.1 by accident. Columbus asked for a correction, but were ignored. Werenski scores a would-be game winning goal that is deemed 0.2 seconds after the buzzer. Had the time been fixed, Columbus would've won right there. Instead, game goes to the SO, where Columbus goalie Joonas Korpisalo is injured, and then Columbus loses."

    I like Torts. He has some valid points.  The BJs also put the Hawks on their loathsome and putrid PP 6 times and had 3 cracks at the even worse Hawks PK but couldn’t score. Blowing a 2-0 lead is common place in the NHL and nothing to really to be surprised about these days, but terrible calls went both ways in that game.  Torts has every right to blow a fuse but some of that needs to be directed at his club as much as the guys in stripes 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Gotta agree to disagree.  Not only does JW not present a chemistry problem, JW is a chemistry solution.  This team has made large strides the past 2 years.  Who residing in the locker room has ever gone anywhere in the playoffs?  JW is practically a Derek Jeter or a Mariano Rivera when it comes to post season play.  The team needs his knowledge, experience, and battle tested fortitude to move to the next plateau.  This team would be crazy NOT to welcome JW back with open arms.

    Hope to see him at New Year's.

    Fair enough. Those are very astute points you make and to a degree I have no qualms about them.  Nonetheless, post-JW reality is setting in, and if he does come back it will be more of a surge (no post-game win celebration pun intended) effort more than being the cornerstone of the team.  If he does come back, I certainly hope he adds all this and more.  You certainly wont hear me rooting against him.

    Gocanes looks to have the honors, we are in good hands.  Get us through the road trip, I have one coming home.

     

    Go Canes!

    I’m going to try to make that Cats game at home on the 21st. All else be damned, I’m determined to make at least one home game before the calendar year flips. 😬. Been wearing the white one too long and ready to Don the home black.

    BTW, you ARE doing the Jets GDT, right?  Let's not mess with the mojo.

    I’ll let some else have the honors on that one. I got the Colorado GDT, so im

    sure there is plenty of other good mojo on the board to carry over to the Jets game 👍🏽. We’ll win
