    I like Boomer and Carton a lot.  Carton is a loud mouth that's pretty funny, he's pretty blue collar, and Boomer is especially.  He's a local guy who works harder than almost anyone and seems to have good values too. I don't care for or listen to much of Beningo and Roberts, or Francesca...mostly because I'm at work then, but also just don't care for their shows or personalities as much.  They're not awful I wouldn't say, but nothing that makes me want to tune in daily. During my lunch hour around noon I've been listening to Jim Rome for about 15 years now and his show still entertains me.  I like the way he conducts interviews and recaps the sports world, and life in general, and he is also a guy who seems to have good morals and values.
  3. Wideman Shoves Linesman: 20 GM Suspension?

    Looks like there's a few categories: http://www.nhl.com/nhl/en/v3/ext/rules/2015-2016-Interactive-rulebook.pdf EDIT:  The paste didn't format properly, so I'll just put the link and it's on page 65 with the other categories.  Here's the one I think it would fall under:

    I was just going to post this.  Awesome read.  Maybe this is naive, it probably is, but do you think he was really traded just to try to prevent him from attending the All-Star game? I feel like it could've been for any number of "hockey" or "business" decisions and just really bad timing. Who did they trade for him? Either way, I've always like the All-Star game and kinda looked forward to it (this year I won't be able to watch because that's the day I'll be driving up to NY/NJ), but it's supposed to be a game for fun. No reason for anyone, the league, fans, whoever, to get all uppity about it, and definitely no reason to go to some insane extreme like move a guy and his family just because he doesn't fit the "traditional" All-Star mold. Yeah it's a bit of a joke, but so what? Why not put one of the biggest guys in the league, who's at somewhat of the tail end of his career, out there against the very best? He is, after all, an NHLer for a reason. He may be the 699th best player out of 700, but he's still in that group of 700.
  5. Wideman Shoves Linesman: 20 GM Suspension?

    Gotcha, didn't know that.  Even still though, I know fans pretty much group all referees together and complain/yell at them equally, and I am sure players do this too, especially in the heat of the moment on the ice after something happened to them.

    Ha, good looking out
  7. Coming to NY 2nd week of Feb - best place to get tickets?

    Awesome, might have to try that place.  Thanks.
  8. Wideman Shoves Linesman: 20 GM Suspension?

    Wasn't his provocation that he (the ref) supposedly missed a pretty obvious call on Wideman?  At least that's what I've been hearing -- that the officiating was garbage and I think there should have, again allegedly, according to Wideman, been a penalty called on a player who did something to him just before this occurred.

    Is that a restaurant/bar nearby?

    Forgot to mention, if anyone is going to be at this particular game and would like to meet up at the arena, if even for just a minute to say hi and introduce yourself, that'd be awesome.  Once I get into town next week, probably on Monday, I'll have an idea of where we want to go to eat before the game and what not, so maybe we could even meet there. 
  11. Around the League 15-16 Edition

    Insane that Lucic only got one game for that. Insane that he only got one game for that.  Pretty weird how he went after the guy like that since it looked like he did absolutely nothing.
  12. Coming to NY 2nd week of Feb - best place to get tickets?

    Awesome, thanks for the replies.  This trip in total is probably going to cost me about $2k, and I'm still recovering from Christmas, not to mention a ton of other expenses, so I was trying to avoid buying stuff at the stadium, but I just might have to have a beer.  I know at Amalie arena they're about $14 which is fvcking nuts.  What are they up there?
  13. Coming to NY 2nd week of Feb - best place to get tickets?

    So I'll be driving up this Sunday, most likely stopping in DC on the way.  Going to the game against the Rags on Tuesday the 2nd.  Just bought tickets...almost a complete sell out, and virtually impossible to get 5 together.  Stuhub had maybe 100 tickets total left, and happened to have 5 together -- upper corner 208, $100 each, but they have ridiculous fees of like $20 per ticket, so instead of $500 for 5, it was $600 for 5.  I tried Tickpick.com and they have no service fees, but 5 tickets they had in the opposite corner were $121 each, so basically the same and still $600.  I ended up going with StubHub just because I've used them before and I feel like I have recourse in case something happens and for some reason they're not together like they say they will be.  Never used Tickpick before and was just looking for a better deal, but couldn't find one. So...how bad are the seats in the upper corner?  They look like complete sh!t, and I'm sure that's why they were left and cheap, but I'll be happy to be in the building.  Sucks shelling out $500, but hopefully we get there early enough to see the stadium and have a good experience to make it worth it.
  14. The Marty Night thread

    Sick man cave.  Did you build the bar yourself?  I have very similar bar stools in my garage by a bar I built myself, but it's nowhere near that (just don't have the space, or, honestly, the money, or more importantly, probably the carpentry skills, to further enhance it) Are those seats from Shea stadium?  My father got my brother and I one seat each from Giants stadium before it went down.  It's #2 which is the day I was born.  I think they were like $250-300 each. Also, how much did that Pacman and that other arcade game set you back?  I imagine games like that are pretty expensive.  I always wanted something like that, most recently maybe the Golden Tee golf games, but I think they cost in the thousands.  Oh and how did you hang those TVs from the ceiling?  I have a small flat screen near my bar that's mounted on the wall and looks good, but suspended from the ceiling looks pretty sweet too.  Are that in a truss or load-bearing beam given that, I assume, that's a basement ceiling?

    The St. Louis situation was him being snubbed at the Olympics. I don't really think it had anything to do with the Lightning beyond the fact that Yzerman was GM.  With Stamkos, I don't think he should be expected to pledge his future to the team -- he's young, probably has a desire to play near his hometown or perhaps with a friend on another team, or whatever, so I think it's perfectly reasonable for him to take his time before jumping into a contract that may be 8 years long (the offer on the table from the Lightning as of yesterday is 8 years, $68M)
