35. Yikes. You're getting up there.
Anyway, happy birthday bud. Have a good one.
Happy birthday Drew...
Hope that menopause doesn't set in too soon... hang on thats for females...
Not sure how you knew but much appreciated.
Since your date of birth is listed in your profile, you get a birthday announcement on the HFBoards main page. Happy belated!
Strange to think an old curmudgeon like you would have a Stalker.
Drew - Might be time for a Brew
A Birthday. The Draft coming up. Playoff Reviews ( i.e. What should have happened like Bruins beat <insert inferior team from West> to win Stanley Cup ). The planets are aligned. We need to call a GM's meeting at Shoeless Joes or the Spherical Arts sometime in the next couple of weeks...
I'm in but given uncoming events (work and leisure) it would need to be after the draft weekend for me. The same is probably true for Douglas as well.
You trying to improve the vocalbulary of the unwashed, or at least illiterate, masses again Nick? I already get enough of that from Douglas.
Here I was being insulted and didn't realize it ... had to go look the word up
Now if you start talking logic structures, Activity Based Costing, troubleshooting etc. then you're talking my language.
No wonder you beat me last year. Hear I was winning all the post-game barb sessions, but getting b1tch slapped in terms of tactics on the good ol' chalk board. That and your ability to somehow get Pronger suspended for game 6 and 7!?!
Of course, I've clearly gotten over that series loss...
LOL. I though you would have progressed to blaming the Ducks by now. Then again Matt is a numbers guy too
Looking back at my previous statement I realize how stupid it sounds.
I guess what I really intended to say is that while all those things come easy to me and I can almost read numbers like others do a book, if you ask me to write a well structured paragraph or test my vocabulary ... we'll you might as well ask me to perform brain surgery. Guess it's one of those left brain right brain things.
The difference, Drew, is that I'm a gracious opponent, win or lose. If it had been your boys that kicked the stuffing out of the Blues to close out the series, I'm sure there would have been a fair amount of gloating involved by now.
For what it's worth, I'm with you in that I can read spreadsheets faster than I can read a book. That said, I still like to think that I'm good for the occasional crafty turn of phrase.
There's enough hate to go around.
I've now added the Ducks to my vengeance list, which already included San Jose and Detroit. And vengeance is a meal, best served cold as they say. Dallas was the first to be put on that list 4 years ago, but successive playoff wins of revenge have lead to them being dropped. Ah the pleasure of crossing off people from the vengeance list....
Actually, my list looks a little like the one from Kill Bill, black magic market and all. In fact, I'm staring at it right now...must...beat...these...teams...
Hehe. That's not entirely true. I admit I love the trash talk but can rarely find a sparing partner. I do all my trash talking up front though. I do not believe I have ever gloated after winning, even this season with Columbus there was alot of trash talk during but you will note there was no "Detroit Wins" article after the 7th game. Trash talk is fun but I don't kick someone when they are down.
In the Blues case it's Nick that keeps bringing up his elimination not me :-P
Bruins buy Japanese Steel...for Skates of course
"Revenge is a dish best served cold." - Old Klingon Proverb
The team has just returned from Okinawa with new 'blades', and we intend to serve the Senators a cold dish of revenge next season. The Flyers were served theirs this year. The Senators are next on our list.

Leave it to a Trekkie to screw up a classic quote.
Tarantino is a trekkie? I quoted the opening credits of Kill Bill Vol. 1.
For the record, that's not a language, Drew - it's a sickness!
I already wished you Happy Brithday, so I'll stick to taunting you about the struggles your team is going to have next season... If you make the playoffs at all, you're likely to find yourself on the unfavourable end of a Round 1 decision (for a change!).
So just enjoy this busy summer, knowing the $#!^-kicking you have to look forward to all next year!
