    Sorry, that one hasn’t gotten played regularly in my life.

    What? That was one of her highest charting songs. It may have went to number one.

     

    It WOULD have gone to number one if Entre had listened to it more!!! :rage:

    I wouldn't even think of comparing him to Kenny G, he was way above him, he was more like a lightweight version of Michael Brecker or Eric Marienthal. 

     

    Yes, that's fair.

     

    I mentioned Kenny G to illustrate the type of music both he and Sanborn play, more instrumental pop than traditional improvisational jazz.

    Monday's game was a disaster, in several ways.  I have been a hockey fan for decades but I have never felt such a punch in the gut as I did last night.  Turning on the tv to the news of Nichuskin getting suspended for substance abuse AGAIN was awful. To do this to your team two years in a row is unforgivable.  His NHL career is over.  Then Toews being out due to illness (yeah, here's looking at you Benn :moon:)  Avs just couldn't recover from that double whammy.

      I want to hope AVS can steal the next one, but not so sure they can.:sigh::sad:

    I watched the highlights. It was almost all Dallas.  

     

    The Stars are running on all cylinders right now. All four lines are effective to the point where you can't really tell which line is on the ice, and the forwards and d-men are totally in sync. And they don't sit back in the 3rd when they have the lead, they keep pushing.  It's impressive to watch.

    Fair Warning takes the album matchup, by I gotta give Flying High the song vs song win.

     

    I can see the value of picking Flying High -- there are plenty of Van Halen songs that don't measure up to it -- but Unchained is a quintessential VH song. Eddie's guitar tone on that song (and on Fair Warning front to back) is flawless -- it's the best heavy guitar sound ever put to tape IMO.

    Why is this thread about a non-existent and/or non-functional screensaver still pinned?  Who even uses a screensaver in 2024?

     

    Unpinned, just an oversight. You get so used to seeing certain things in the spots where they've always been for almost 20 years you don't even think about them. Thanks for understanding.

    A few weeks later Robert Conklin was hired by Rolling Stone magazine. 

     

    I just Googled him and came up with nothing. Which makes sense as he's a terrible writer. That review reads like a high school English class exercise, one that received a C-.

    Absolutely. If the Isles would have gotten past the Bolts a few years ago they would have met the Stars in the Final. Of course I'd pull for the Isles all the way, but that would have been fun.

    Play by play, or analyst? Their play guy is harmless enough, so I'm thinking you mean Daryl Reaugh, aka Razor, their color analyst. He's certainly unique with his offbeat humor and descriptive phrases, but he's super knowledgeable, and in my opinion he''s the best analyst in the game.

     

    And as for their goal song, custom made by hometown Pantera? Also the best in the game. I'm been to games at the AAC and it's a loud and fun place to see some hockey.

     

    Obviously you 100% disagree with all this. :tongue:

    You know way too much about the Stars. Very suspicious. Is it your second favorite team?

    Love the "DALLAS!  STARS! post-goal crowd chant, one of the best in the League.

    To each his own, it's obnoxious and dumb. They have one of the weirdest play by play announcers too, like nails on a chalkboard.

    I didn't know you cared so much about the Western Conference. Yeah, Kurashev made a stupid mistake. Good luck against the Canes.   :pirate:

     

    I like the Stars, they're a fun team to watch. Lots of goals off the rush.

     

    The Isles are due to beat the Canes in the playoffs at some point, not sure if it's this year, but we'll see. I'd say the Canes are the best team in the East.

    Kings 5 Hawks 4 in OT. :cake1: Fun way to end it all. 23-53-6  

     

    I wanted you guys to win this one so Dallas could play the Kings in the first round, and you had the lead late. Instead, a careless delay of game penalty and 6 seconds of OT later and now it's the Stars playing Vegas.

    The Wings deserved a better fate after tying last night's game with 3 seconds left and winning it in the shootout. Those heroics were erased when the more-undeserving Caps went ahead on an empty net goal in a tie game. Lame.

    But Torts didn't know Flyers were eliminated by then.   :wink:

     

    No he didn't, and those big moments in those two games were happening at the same time. Before the game he did say he'd pull the goalie if the game was tied late  because the Flyers needed a regulation win.

    Well both the Caps and the Red Wings won last night, keeping the (undeserving) Pens out.  They had a great run in the late season, though!  Boo Caps, too bad the Red Wings didn't make the playoffs.

    UConn's Nika Muhl did a great job shadowing Caitlyn Clark.  That was a smart game plan, assigning a top defender to Clark with no help responsibility.  I was surprised that Iowa didn't seem prepared for that, that their offense didn't include more screening to free Clark up.  Clark seemed to have to do most of the work herself.

     

    Andraya Catrer showed in the pregame how Muhl defended in her last game, and she shadowed Clark in the exact same way tonight. You'd have to think the Iowa coaches knew it was coming, I don't know what gameplan they could have come up with to combat that. Muhl is just relentless on D.

     

    Give credit to the other Iowa players, they picked up the slack while Clark had Muhl all over her.

    The illegal extension of the screen  prevented the defender from getting over the top.  It was a good call, and one that was made earlier in the game. :confused:

     

    Right, but the timing of the call seemed iffy to me, like if they didn't call it at that point in the game would Iowa have complained? Not sure.

    UConn violates the Golden Rule!  When it’s crunch time, you don’t give the refs any opportunity to determine the outcome of the game.  

     

     I hate that such a close game -- and such an important game -- was possibly affected by a borderline call in the last minute. It makes you wonder if the call was legit, and I hate that we have to wonder about such things when we have legalized sports betting and TV ratings lurking in the shadows.

    Laughs in California.


    If you get a earthquake, us westsiders get White Castle and you get In N Out.  Fair is fair.

     

    I did call it a bitty one. :wink: But even bitty ones are rare out here.

     

    And you can have White Castle, that stuff is gross. A sliver of grade D beef on a burger that's mostly bun. I can get slider buns anywhere.

     

    How are In N Out's prices these days? Here in the east Five Guys is up to $18+ for just a regular burger/small fries/drink.
