What's this weird "make a wish" project that the team has going to get Michael McLeod goals? 

I want Nico getting his goal at the end for a hard working display , not bumping McLeods stat line. 

Yeah i feel it was fine the first time to "break" the cycle. But then you don't want to become the guys that just scores empty netter that your teammates are giving you lol

It’s the kind of player Nico is. I never shot at an empty net when I played hockey, I always found someone.

hahahahahahahahahahahaha he does look like him!!!!!!

I must give credit where credit is due...

 

That one was all me, lmao.  But mfitz was the first one to fully appreciate the hilarity of the reference...and the uncanny resemblance.   

 

BTW go back on page and you'll see a great Kid Ray and Geertsen photo comparison.  Geertsen recently chopped off his hair (for cancer), so looks like his Kid Ray days are done for now.  I used to have a nice thick head of hair like that...fvck nature and its unfair attack on my follicles.

I actually saw it on my phone when it was posted last week but I was a bit busy to respond.  I immediately laughed when I saw it because it's very accurate haha.

Now I want to watch that movie again.  I always felt bad for Mr. Darnell as Clark was always on his ass over nothing.

"You give me the goddamn respect that you would want yourself, or I will kick your black ass!"  Can't blame Mr. Darnell for snapping like that one bit.  Poor guy seemed like his heart was always in the right place.

Apparently a number of inaccuracies in that movie...Clark's methods did indeed help to make his school safer and more orderly, but student performance while he was there was mixed:  Commentary : 'Lean on Me': A Modern Myth? : Taking Artistic Liberty With Real Joe Clark - Los Angeles Times (latimes.com)

Yeah I heard that too.  He barely moved the needle in terms of student achievement at that school.  IIRC his tenure was pretty short there too and he spent most of his subsequent years doing seminars/talks/consulting on his methods.  As a law and order principal, he was great.  As for an educator he was meh.

Every time I think of that movie I always think about going to the DVD section in Walmart years ago.  Walmart likes to package these smaller movies into collections or combo packs with similar kind of movies.  Lean On Me was always packaged with Stand and Deliver as those two movies are about teachers/principals who went in and cleaned up the school by uplifting the kids.  Right next to it typically was The Principal/The Substitute combo pack which were movies about teachers who cleaned up the school by beating the crap out of the kids.

It was a masterful reference and I remain somewhat disappointed that I didn’t see it myself immediately.
