View Full Version : Hockey pool - an update
Jed the Humanoid

Well I just thought it would be a good time since we're at mid-season to look at how that pool is going.
I say it's going well. Of course, the fact that I'm in first place today (tie with Ammie) might be a bias.
Now Kid Rock said a few months ago that he'd catch up and be in the lead for the Olympics. Any update on that ? :wink:

You and Ammie are tied for first, eh? I guess that just shows that Canadians know their hockey! Way to go! :toast:

I don’t want to suggest that I am going to win the hockey pool but I will easily smack the smiles off the Canadian contingent.
I, am mere Texan, will prove, just like the Dallas Stars, that a winner isn’t necessarily the one so irrational as to live in a colder climate. Now there are many good teams in the hockey pool and I wouldn’t want to insult them but everyone should acknowledge the days of Canadian hockey dominance are over.
Jed and Ammie will lose. Mark my words.

Actually Maine-iac, I know nothing about hockey. :smile:
Interesting confidence on Draco given that he has proposed 4 trades with me this week. :wink: Since he gave me one good tip, I will hold back my original comment. I have accepted 1/4, my texan friend.
Jed, your rise to the top was short lived. :smile:

Ammie, never admit a lack of knowledge concerning sports unless you integrate it into the trash talk. For example, “It must be embarrassing to be losing to someone without a passing knowledge of the sport.”
Since he gave me one good tip… Let me think… Should I?… If it was another Chick I would suggest that tip was to get back in the kitchen and cook my dinner. No. I’d best let that one go.
Ebenezer knows well enough that the Slytherin banner is destined to hang upon the rafters. Right wing was my weakest position before Amonte. His presence will quickly loft Slytherin back into first.

Apparently I prefer to be more subtle.

Letting it go would be wise...

...and they'll do all this while they're slumping, coachless? Is Tonya going to be on the same line as Modano?

Give 'em hell Ammie!!! :grin:

How is the view from behind me, Ammie? :moon:

I assume Lindros-Free is American, so he should be tough to beat, but beating the Canadians Jed and Ammie should be no problem whatsoever. Canadians don't represent any real competition in hockey. This includes both the NHL AND the Olympics!

I'll give that the answer it deserves. :razz:
Is Bolt even playing anymore? I don't recall any action from his camp, ever.

Ok... 1 day to go. Gee, I wonder if Draco is so confident today. Tough season for Texas. :lol:
We'll see who's on top tomorrow! (If Smyth does not finish -8 in his game against the Wild, I'd say I have a shot!!!)

Nice Logo, Jed!

I'd like to dedicate this victory to the players who truly inspired me (http://suprfrog.topcities.com/junk/82NordiquesPostcards.htm). Scary thing is that I could name all the players on that page without even looking at the names under, and still remembered their Jersey numbers!

Congratulations my friend! :)
