Default Yooper - this thread's for you

Knowing that you're a big Redwings fan, what will you be drinking for the finals? Or will you be at the game drinking commercial swill? On every other occasion I usually support the Wings, but being from Pittsburgh originally and learning to play hockey trying to emulate the Penguins players, I have to go with Pittsburgh on this one. Should be a great series. I'm having my stalwart hockey friends over, cooking some brats on the grill (steeped in beer of course - probably a weizen) and offering up samples of everything I've brewed so far. (I always hold some back). Then it's someone else's turn for the rest of the series.

Lets Go Pens!

Being from the burgh and a season ticket holder for the Pens everytime I see that avatar it makes me wonder "what kind of person would root for the wings? Oh well at least Yooper likes good beer."

It is going to be a great series! This post-season ranks up there as one of the best in recent hockey history!

P.S. Hossa = traitor

Well, I'm out at my cottage with no TV and only dial-up internet for tomorrow's game so I'll be trying to get updates via you guys!

I have my "plain old American IPA" to drink. It's young, but it's tasty and it'll go great with a Red Wings victory. I have one Bell's Hopslam left in the fridge, to celebrate with (or to cry into) after the game.

I think this series will be great! Crosby and Malkin are exciting to watch and they'll really pour it on for the Wings defense. I hope Datsyuk and Lidstrom can play- the Wings really need them!

Where I live, I don't have Versus available, so I've seen very few play off games, and will miss those games this week. It sounds like I might only see a couple of games, unless the series goes 6 or 7 games (and I think it will).

Sorry to tell all you Wings fans (Yooper), but Marian Hossa has doomed Detroit's cup bid this year. I hope the Pen's use him as a Zamboni!

Yooper, It looks like you're a real fan. How can you not be with the avater. I'm back here in NJ and we follow the Devils. Wasn't our year. We still watch all of the games even after the Devs have been eliminated. We have a bunch of Devs stuff from when my daughter dated a guy whose aunt worked in their office and she still has it in her room. She'll take it when she and SO move into a house.

We're fighting about who we want to win but having a good time.

Finally, I would like to say THANKS! for all of you contributions to this forum. I've learned a ton from them.

Well, I wussied out and came home. It's supposed to be 27 degrees, and it's already quite cold and windy. So, I'm home in my nice warm home, awaiting the game. The cottage is nice with a fire in the fireplace, but home is good too, since the Wings game will be televised on a channel I get!

So, who's with me? A beer or three, and root for the Wings!

Yeah. 27. I covered all the garden plants, and brought in my flowers. It was in the 40s last night, and it was pretty cold.

The cold weather puts me in the mood for HOCKEY!
