My girlfriend bought me a Winnipeg Jets jersey for Christmas last year. Seeing as I was born there, I'll always be a Jets fan. Going to the games and Seeing Selanne, Essensa, and Zhamnov in the blues.

Nowadays my focus has really shifted to the Canucks. Luongo is nipping at Marty Brodeur's heels, and the Sedin twins are the best players to watch play together hands down.

i think luongo is overrated. He doesn't play well when it matters

Soon, obviously. Well, if the 2009 season is soon...

I actually was at the Leafs Game in Pitt 2 seasons ago where the power went out.

Everyone was chanting "NEW ARENA". It was pretty sweet.

Yeah, he does get a lot more attention than he deserves right now, but giving this kind of performance in his late 20's is nothing to laugh at. That and the Panthers and Canucks can't score goals to save their lives.

Anybody else watch the all-star game when they had Marty Turco on the microphone out on the ice? That in-game banter was far and away my favorite part of that game.

I went to a fighting sioux game with my hockey team last year, and the fans are amazing, all the college kids are crazy and its just a fun time. the Arena is amazing. Where i live in Winnipeg there are no NHL teams, but i think there is a possibility of one coming here. Although it would prob leave after 5 years.

I am glad you had fun at the Sioux game. Englestad arena is an impressive building. The Sioux is about all Grand Forks has, so we are quite rabid about our college hockey. It would be nice to see Winnipeg get a team again, I had some fun going to Jets games when I was younger. It was a shame that the Jets & Nords left Canada.

Red Wings. I have been a huge fan since the mid 80's when Steve Yzerman began the turnaround. If the NHL would just do the right thing and put them in the East where they belong, all would be good. The fact that they only play Toronto and Montreal once a year is ridiculous. The travel schedule for the playoffs sucks. As a fan, I end up watching games that start at 10:30 PM and go until 1:30 AM. This blows when I have to get up at 6:00. The teams in the East never change time zones during the playoffs. I keep hoping that one of the teams in the East moves out West so they can make the change. The problem is that the Wings are the best draw in Hockey and the West needs their help.

Wing used to be my #2 team. Ever since Stevie Y and Shanny left, I don't have the same feeling for them.

Not sure you can say hands down when you have the likes of Crosby & Malkin skating together. I saw them play live vs the Flyers and they are pretty amazing together.

I am a Blackhawks fan.

I feel for you. As a Wings fan, I hate the Blackhawks, but it's a shame that the ownership has let such a great franchise fall as far as they have. I really would like to see them come back. I miss the old Norris Division days when it would be a war each time they played eachother.

I am a Blackhawks fan.

Well, I've seen Patty Kane, and Akim Aliu (2007 1/3 draft picks) play multiple times and they are sick, so things may be looking up.

No doubt that years and years of piss-poor performance and early draft picks should lead to some talent, but the Chicago Blackhawks will never be a great team as long as Dollar Bill Wirtz is in charge.

They won't even televise their home games.

We have an integrated household. We have season tickets for the Columbus Blue Jackets and a partial season for the Flyers. Man it takes a long time to go from central Ohio to the Wachovia Center.

    • 100: Took me about 3-4 years at 4-5 round a year to break 100, was not playing a lot back then. I shoot a 96.  90: About two year after breaking 100 (20 rounds), shoot a 86 and a 89 two rounds after that. Just managing blow-ups better help me a lot, did not have a single birdie in those 2 rounds but no triple either. Better control of my driving helped a lot (less slices).  80: Not yet. Hoping this year 😊 My lowest round last year was 83 and now i'm waiting for the snow to melt!!  70: N/A
    • 100 & 90 - not sure.   I started golf pretty early.   I'm sure I shot in the 80's some time around 14 years old.    80: I shot 80 on the nose more than a handful of times between 1999 and 2018.   but never could get below, till I shot a 78 last summer.   which was baller.   70:  yeah, we'll see about that.  
    • Here are my top five favorite and least favorite players currently on the PGA Tour. Favorites------------Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Francesco Molinari Least Favorites----Dustin Johnson, Bill Haas, Billy Horshel, Rory Sabbatini and Hunter Mahan                                                                                                                                           I don't really dislike the last five as much as I just catch myself pulling against them when they are in contention. (Also, I realize Haas and Mahan are not in the top 125 right now). Who are your favorites and least favorites?
    • Well, it's not an absolute, of course.  It's just a tendency to fare well in the long game and crap out in the short game.  (BTW, the 7-iron over the green was pretty useful information for me.  It is the result of my fiddling with the swing.  Looks like I am getting about 20-30 yards extra off my irons with this hips-first swing.) Also, on the 7 you quoted, I hit a 2nd shot off the tee since the right shoreline is tree-lined and I did not think I could get a decent drop.  I should have put that part in there.  Naturally that faded some and ended under a tree anyway. pfft Klineka, we are so far off the topic now that I have nearly forgot the point. Actually, this thread has been off point for a long time anyway.
    • made some changes and have a few DTL videos to share. noticed inconsistent ball position was causing some previously unexplained mishits. using a couple of alignment rods to fix this. widened stance and feeling more centered foot pressure. just feels more solid. keeping chin higher at address and throughout backswing. much easier to get a full turn and had the unintended consequence (along with wider stance) of reducing lateral head movement when i load up (à la henrik stenson). using a neutral grip now. most frequent miss has turned into a pull. neutral grip helps prevent pull hooks. first video is a drill (7-iron) i'm using to improve tempo and separation. it's the drill i love to hate: challenging and significantly reduces power but very helpful. this particular swing is acceptable but i want to try to get more separation. 1) i need better core strength and to do more pelvic exercises. and 2) i need to trust the top half will follow the bottom half. feedback or questions? second video is about 80% tempo with a p-wedge. there's a clear difference between this and the drill swing. i hit this ball dead straight but it could've easily been a 10-yard pull if my timing was slightly off. i want to fix this so i don't rely on timing and i think that starts with a more consistent path on the backswing (like in the drill) and getting better separation so i don't jump at the ball from the top before sliding/turning with the lower half. feedback or questions? third video is an example of how much more drastic this swing flaw looks with longer irons. here i'm hitting a 16.5* driving iron. saved the shot with good timing and roasted a baby pull fade but it could have turned out badly. i want this club to be my fairway finder. have made solid progress in the last few weeks but still have a bit of work to do before i'm comfortable bagging it. feedback or questions?
