I forgot the point of the game was to get your TE the most yards. My B 

I'm assuming that this is just banter. My head hurts, and I'm probably missing something. I'll chalk it up to an attempt at humor and move on.

I know your a Lions’ fan and winning is a foreign concept for you, but you’ll get it.

 

*looks at Lions’ roster*
 

well maybe you’ll get it….one day….in the distant future…..

Eh, I'm a huge hockey fan, and grew up watching the Red Wings win numerous cups. I'm good with the concept.

It's really the best of both worlds: I got to experience the thrill of championships with the Wings and the thrill of the... draft... with the Lions.

I also grew up watching them win a ****load of cups.

Living in Michigan with a stepdad who was a huge fan, I had no choice.

I was a Flyers’ fan (don’t follow hockey really anymore) I went to game 1 of the SCF when the Red Wings trounced the Flyers. It was my first real taste of Philly sports pain. 
 

I’ll consider this win a small act of revenge

Hockey is an incredible sport. Even if you despise the Wings, there's nothing quite as intense as the Stanley Cup Finals.

As a child, Yzerman was my favorite player, and the Russian Five were legendary. Then you look at how they obtained, then sustained, that success: Lidstrom and Fedorov were taken in the 3rd and 4th rounds, and then guys like Zetterberg (pick 210) and Datsyuk (pick 171) continued their legacy. Unparalleled European drafting and timely trades created Hockeytown.

Anyway... uh... trades?

I was in PA for about 8 years before moving back to MI a few years ago. I'll never forget watching the Lions-Eagles game at work that year, and how the Slay INT secured that win for the Lions. The guys at work were pissed.

I actually know all those names and will throw in two more: Luc Robitaille and Chris Osgood.

Robitaille was one of those timely acquisitions that proved to be huge for the team: great player both on the ice and in the locker room. We had a few of those during that era.

Osgood is the man. Not only was he an underrated goalie throughout his career, but he hosts some of the Red Wings games and is absolutely hilarious. 

And how 'bout that Grind Line? Even with the talent those teams had, I don't think they win without what Draper, McCarty and Maltby provided on the ice. Absolute legends.

I’m getting flashbacks to how many hours I played NHL 96 as a child with all these names
