I'm not sure what started the whole rafiki vs that's nice feud. Can anyone give me a synopsis? I don't want to have to go digging through the thread to figure it out. Just be careful, boys. After Tupac and Notorious B.I.G you never know how these things will turn out.

And oh, if I have to take a side, I'm going to have to stick with my fellow Cubs fan. We've suffered enough.

Not a feud, more like an arch-nemesis, friendly rivalry kind of thing. It actually began on Tim's PTR thread. Barry pretty much started it himself, and it's just grown from there as these things typically do.

My Bobby Orr story is that while in college I was working for a caterer and I got to cater Bobbys 40th Birthday Party at his house. I bartended, one of the favorite moments of my life.

Nice!

Funny story. I play in a no-checking men's league in Westchester County New York. One of the last games of this past year's winter season, a guy on another team who is a dirty player and a real jerk is acting up the whole game because we were winning. Anyway, at the end of the game, he challenges me to a fight right in front of our bench. His whole team skates over and I am just leaning against the baords as he is skating in a semi-circle yelling at me to "come on, let's go". I look at him and start laughing. I say:

"Dude, I'm 40 years old. I'm married with two kids. I have to get up for work tomorrow. I'm not getting into a fight in a F-----g Westchester County Men's league."

His entire team starts laughing now. He turns beet red and skates away. When we were shaking hands, he still shook mine. BUt everyone on his team told me how much I embarrassed him.

It actually started with Tim commenting to Mark (Captain Oblivious) about his daughter's medical history :

Juliana is really a brave kid and has been through things I would not wish on my worst enemy(I'm not sure that I have one of those though... lol)
So, as any good friend would do, I offered to help:

I've always wanted an arch-nemesis! Do you want to be mine?

Batman/Joker. Superman/Lex Luthor. Barry/Tim. It will be EPIC!
So, I guess if the world gets plunged into darkness and chaos during the Ultimate Power Struggle®, we can all blame Mark.
Welcome to the team! Don't forget to wear your ID badge around the headquarters. You can use the swipe card on the back to purchase soda and candy from the cafeteria and check out Death Ray Blaster Guns from the armory.

DW says I tend to go overboard on some things. I'm still trying to figure out what she means by that.

Dad played pro? That is so cool! I love hearing stories about those old timers. If Grapes said he was such a hard hitter - that is really saying something.

I basically played in high school and was a mediocre player. My coach was a goalie before goalies wore masks. He had 2 teeth left in his mouth. I just do it for fun and exercise now. It is such a great sport to play. I am getting my son into it now - he does MiniMite hockey and is having a blast.

I never heard that song before. Really old school in the clip with the tube skates, some players look like they had no curve on the stick blade (all wood sticks too), no helmets, goalies with their "Jason" masks, etc..

Anyone ever hear Warren Zevon's Hockey Song? I have it on my Ipod. Here is a link:

My friends still talk about that game and how I won this fight without throwing a punch. He actually got suspended for getting into a fight the very next game against another team. Unfortunately for him, he picked a fight with a player who was a cop from Yonkers. He didn't fare so well in that one. Needless to say, I won't be lighting any candles for him.

I played into college......average player as well.....played club level in college...did play against some bigger schools Navy, Niagra univ., BUffalo state, john caroll....
Haven't really played much lately...still skate, trying to get my 2 boys into it....they did get into the game program here this past winter...was a good deal...$200 they got 8 classes/sessions , 5 free public skating passes, and full gear. Yes I said full gear...The only thing we had to buy was a cup and a mouthguard....
Me growing up it was way dif. with pops playing all the time, I was really into it....now as a dad, I am way to outta shape to be playing in a mens league, to inspire them...So My new sights are set for this winter....I am putting up a rink here @ my house! I just hope we get a good, cold winter here in western pa. to make it worth while.....I want to get a nice rink set up with just low boards to keep the puck in..no dashers....I think I may start out with their 20X40 kit to see how much use/pita it is.....
many folks around you do that?

I'm pretty sure this started in the same way that Trip Report hijackings start: because we can. Do we really need another reason?

My third-grade teacher once whispered to my parents that she feared I would someday be "That Guy"(TM), the one who would set in motion the events that would lead to the apocalypse and destroy the world. Now it's all coming back to haunt me.
