The phone call is from a company, so the last 4 digits are different depending who's calling Well, we have call display and since Monday, I've been monitoring the calls and answer only the ones that have 232, which have happened about...

might be the answer to some of the 'criticism' posted here. Usually, the teams that have the 'stars' or create the 'hype' will finish in the first 4 in the regular season, ie Ottawa/Carolina/Detroit/Dallas. Although I do not believe in giving a 'bye' like in football (that would kill any team, not p...

I'm not sure if this website has been posted before (sorry if it was) - it has been around for a couple of years. It gives basic information on our military heritage, but I still think it's a great site. A lot of topics are covered, from before 1534 to today.. For anyone interested in our military h...

Don Cherry wouldn't recognize intelligence even if it would bite him in the ass . The guy is washed up and I can't believe some parents are letting their kids listening to what he says (although I have to admit I agree with him about the icing. There's no need to have to 2 rush to the puck and be in...

Oh do I agree with you twister!!!! Tucker is one of the nastiest player around.. I didn't like him when he played for Tampa Bay, hated him when he played for Montreal and more than despise him right now (did you see the non-hit from Volchenkov where he lies there on the ice like he was just shot by ...
