    Can also confirm that #Sixers-#Devils presser isn't about on-court/on-ice matters. Sixers aren't playing any games in Newark, for instance.

    Can confirm the #Sixers-#Devils press conference tomorrow is NOT about any potential relocation of either franchise.

     

    This guy is a writer for the Philly Inquirer.  I'm leaning towards a gaming partnership/advertising thing.

  2. Curious, were you sitting in 119, last row? Guy behind me was with his dad for their first game of the season and was saying a lot of the exact same stuff you just listed out haha Figured I'd ask.

     

    Too funny. Nope we were in section 5.

  3. Was finally able to get out to my first game of the season last night with my old man.  Maybe its just me but the overall atmosphere at the Rock seemed better last year. Not sure I can put my finger on it but I remember the games I went to last year vs PHI were pretty wild crowd-wise.  It seemed more rowdy last year.  Last nights game seem tame.  I'd also like to say that as several people have noted there is certainly a hige difference in music selection this season - in between plays, when the Devils come out before periods and the goal song and all for the worse. A ton of classic rock last night (which I actually love but would like more of a mix). Even my dad noticed it and said something. Oh yeah that new goal song is a catastrophe.  It's awful.  And bring back Seek and Destroy EVERY period when the Devils hit the ice.

  4. Afternoon Delight over at the Rock!

    LETS GO DEVILS!

  5. I went to the Henrique signing at Sports Minded on Sunday and I never expected so many people!  I arrived around 1:30 and there must have already been 200 people in line.  When I got my ticket it said #367. The line wrapped around the building and even up a set of stairs and back down to snake the people a little bit inside during the rain.  Once Henrique sat down (about 15 minutes early) and got to signing the line moved pretty quick and I was out of there around 3:15.  Seemed like a cool dude. Little shy but can't blame him. His support crew was also relaxed and had a good attitude. Joking and such.  I think the $20 price and his overall popularity contributed to the huge crowd.

     

    This was my first signing session since I was a little kid and my first Devils signing so I didn't really know what to expect.  I think next time I'll get there at least an hour early. :doh1:

    Perfect!  My GF got me an 8x10 of "the goal" and was kicking herself she didnt get the autographed one so I told her I'd keep my eyes peeled for any Henrique signings.  This works out well.

     

    Although she wont be pleased shes missing it as Henrique is her favorite Devil. Too bad shes working.  I'll be sure to get a photo of me and him for her  :thumbsup:

     

    Edit: I just looked at SMU's site and a past Henrique signing and saw huge line out the door.  What time should I get there to be one of the first people in line and not halfway into the parking lot?

  7. I have a new one thats been really pissing me off lately. Its the Infiniti commercial with the family thats driving someplace in the snow and a 60ish year old man smugly blurts out "I hope we make it. Have a 40 year old tradition to keep."

     

    What tradition must they keep you may ask. Whats so important that this middle aged man with his annoying graphite pseudo wrap-around eye glasses and cab driver cap is lamenting over in the back seat of this car?? 

     

    At the end of this commercial theres a kid putting an ornament on a tree and then someone hits a button and the tree lights up.  Wait. I may be mistaken but doesn't every Christmas celebrating family in the world have that tradition? Hanging sh!t on a tree and making it light up. Oh boy! Can't derail the all important tradition of decorating a tree for Christmas! It has to be done tonight! Right now! This ornament HAS to get on that tree and it MUST be lit up or else a 40 year old tradition of decorating a tree for Christmas will be lost!

     

    I don't get this commercial on any level.  Nothing says Infiniti SUVs like driving in the snow to hang an ornament on a tree and lighting it up. Maybe the dude's awful looking glasses say Infiniti.  I do not know. Oh well.  Spoiler Alert: they kept the tradition alive.  Now seemingly 41 years old.  Until next year.

     

    Edit: I found it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zoC1T-8PwE

     

    I'd like to add that the grandpa's facial expression when the tree lights up at the end makes me want to mule kick him in the mouth.

  8. I'm 5'11 and 175. By all accounts an avg build. I got a medium Premier replica and it's a bit loose (sleeves down about an inch or so past my wrists and back flap past my rear end) and I actually wish I had tried on a small. If your old man is 5'9 a small may be the way to go. My advice would be to get to a place like the NHL store that you'd know would have small premiers and try one on.
