elliott70 moving???

Post by hamboni » Wed Jan 04, 2006 9:24 am

rumors are flying around the northland that elliott70 is moving his roots from the greter bemidji area to that of the twin ports region. is it to better his literary exposure and increase book sales or is it to be closer to his duluth east greyhounds, to whom he's developed a fondness for?? he should think twice if it's the latter, for the mighty greyhounds are a mere .500 with two losses to section opponents. puts a new perspective on 7aa seedings. elliott still won't concede that #1 spot to the gr team, that by the way, has wins over the same two teams that east has lost to. he keeps bringing up a gr loss to virginia. were you at that game elliott? if you had been you would have seen a reffing debaucle(sp). esqire magazines choice for hockey ref of the year, bobby, excuse me is my helmet on straight, zuehlke, made a sham of the game. penalties in the game were 12-3. do the math elliott. that's one whole period that gr skated shorthanded. think what you want about virginia, but they have some talented kids that, when skating a man up for the whole game, will make the difference. elliott also keeps bringing up a quality east win against moorhead. he doesn't take into consideration that moorhead played the night before in grand rapids, had to leave everything on the ice to escape with a win, spend the night in a flea bag motel(that's all rapids has) take a lengthy bus ride to the decc, watch in horror as there best player gets carted off on a gurney, and then try to bring there best game to the ice. sorry, elliott, that quality win is more like a gift in their win column. do think twice before leaving paul bunyan land for mike randolph land. by the way, what are your picks for the section now??? <p></p><i></i>

Uh, check the other thread, for my sincere apology.<br><br>But remember it is only January 4th. And if things go south for my beloved Indians, then I will expect a similar thread dedicated to my brilliance, since you have taken liberty with my inability to predict the degree of injury to a key ER player.<br><br>All sarcasm and kidding aside, I am not an East fan, just a 7AA fan. And if I were to pick my favorite (current) 7AA team it would be either Rapids or Brainerd or East. Why? Because I know 2 players on GR, 3 on East, and 3 on Brainerd. And I know the Brainerd coach. Next would be ER, because Darth loves them so much. <br><br>All in all, I try to keep an objective eye in 7 & 8, both AA & A.<br>And maybe the refs just called what they saw, not what you saw, in the Virginia game. and I did not say Virginia was a bad team, just not the bestin 7A (IMHO).<br><br>So remember, the game is for fun. This Board is for fun (and information). And if you are just having fun (at my expense now) well, I just have one thing to say to that.<br><br><!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :rollin --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/roll.gif ALT=":rollin"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br><!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :lol --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br><!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :lol --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br>You are right. <p></p><i></i>

Hamboni makes some great points. The thing is, when you look at any game Rapids lost it's been to a top ranked team and only by a goal, or 2 with an empty netter. <br><br>I just get sick of the fact that Rapids has done everything they can to be a #1 seed and there is all this yah but, blah, blah, blah. It just seems like everyone wants to change the way the rank teams just so they can find some way to put Rapids down. And that comment is not directed at elliot, but just others. For instance the commentators on the ER/East game who seem to think 7AA is a two horse race with the teams at hand last night. <p></p><i></i>

Yes, blue, I think I have him by thirty. Which kind of surprises me as I never thought I would make it to 30, let alone 50+.<br><br>Ah, to be a young man with a permanent...<br>well, that story is for a different forum. <p></p><i></i>
