Good morning, everyone! The 2016 World Cup of Hockey initial rosters were announced. The first 16 players for each team were announced, with the remaining 7 to be announced by July 1. From the Bruins, Loui Eriksson will play for Sweden, the Davids will play for the Czech Republic, Tuukka for Finland, Chara and Seidenberg for the Team Europe amalgamation, and Patrice Bergeron will perfectly represent Team Canada.
Icethetics has the full rundown of the World Cup jerseys here. I particularly like the USA away jersey and the Sweden home jersey.
What’s on tap?
Does anyone know if there’s a tutorial available on how to do things (fonts, images, etc.) in WordPress comments?
Heres a link for you: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_formatting.asp
Basically, its standard html formatting procedure with a couple nice perks- links dropped in will be links (as full url, if you want it to be other text as the link, then you need the html) and for images, you can just paste the image url into the comment box as is and it will automatically insert the image, which is even easier than the SBNation image function
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SARCASM!!!
yeah that ones an issue
Got it! For sarcasm font, use the “code” tag.
So, if you want something to be sarcastic, you type it as:
[less than]code[greater than]your sarcastic comment[less than]/code[greater than].
Yeah, like that would work.
Oh right! Tonight is the last Winter Classic jersey night of the season!
Is that a sigh because the WC jerseys won’t be seen after tonight, or because they will be seen tonight?
For me it’s a sigh because I flew 3000 fucking miles to watch that disaster.
But at least you got to see the alumni game?
Alas, no. I gave those tickets to a friend so she could take her family.
I just noticed we have a lot of usernames that are divisible by 9.
Ten minutes to Wapner!
The Toledo Walleye Zombie Night story is even better than previously reported:
it warms my heart that more peeps are coming over
Hi,all! I’m new here! Is this place any fun?
Hey! You found us!
We like to think this place is fun, seeing as we were what made the old place fun. Glad to see you make the jump!
That other place is really going downhill. Apparently all the cool kids came over here.
All the cool kids made here. You’re welcome.
I almost didnt recognize you behind the incognito mustache
Well, I had it all set up, now it’s different. I don’t know why I’m not comfortable throwing a picture in the media library on my own site but I am.
My final straws were “Fire Claude, Bench Rask, Waive Killer” posting a half-dozen or more dumpster-fire gifs all over articles about the trade deadline moves & some lurker coming out of the woodwork to be a douche, calling Sidney Crosby “Cindy”. It seems that a lot of the new posters are assholes like that.
A website gets the comment threads it deserves. That is all I have to say on the matter.
Well, we’re glad you’re here. Put it all out of your mind, we’re not like that. Keep in mind we’re still building the site, so, we’re not showing off potential yet.
Well, I’m loving what you’ve done with the place so far! It’s the little things that make it, like the “Pasta Comment!” button and “Recch” & “Bag Skate” for thumbs up/down.
Alas, most of that Recchage goes to S81 and IW. I just coordinate, poorly at times.
Then I guess you get to be the officially unofficial (or unofficially official) representative for all the poorly-coordinated among us (like me)!
Only before 12PM. Then we become pumpkins.
It’s important to rest before game threads.
I keep forgetting to do that. I will probably try and fail to do that on Saturday.
You need a manatee game and soon.
March 11, April 3, April 9.
Except I’m in Budapest on March 11.
ahh a sea cow game.
Hey, welcome aboard! Ha! Nice profile pic!
Thanks! It’s everybody’s favorite lagomorph.
are you waist deep in balls?
I see your testosterone injections are going well.
do we have a #[X]AfterDark in use here?
We definitely #afterdark here.
#B2BAfterDark is more or less the go to
I like it. …works better than #Sisterafterdark in this case.
Yeah, that one sounds like a naughty nun.
Most of us kept the same handles (or slightly changed in my case, by popular demand), but for reference, carvinbass18 is the artist formally known as BBKM
Thanks bud! Bruins(x2)_Kings_Monarchs is just a train wreck to type out every time I have to log in
Plus, the UnMonarchs are just blah now
Is that carvinbass as in shredding on a bass guitar, or as in filleting a fish?
This gif always gets me to giggle uncontrollably.
Carvin Bass. It’s a brand. But Recch for getting bass guitar. I get so many people who say “oh do you fish?” Valid question, but no. No i don’t
Gotcha. I think the only other name I didn’t recognize so far is IntentionallyWidenberg. Is that anyone I might’ve known under another name?
No, that’s my husband, who came over from HFBoards.
Also all mighty spam destroyer
I’ll have your spam. I love it. I’m having spam spam spam spam spam spam spam beaked beans spam spam spam and spam!
Do you have anything without spam?
Well, there’s spam egg sausage and spam, that’s not got much spam in it.
Whats funny is…the first time through the first two options had no spam in it.
I was curious about that one myself….WHY AM I ALWAYS THE LAST TO KNOW!
also “stripes” is the reincarnation of chain smoker
And every time I want to yell out “Yipes Stripe! Fruit Stripe Gum!”
reminds me of this
Ah, yes – the ref! I don’t think I’ve seen him say anything in my few short hours here so far.
He pops in here and there. He’s surprisingly busy with reffing games and traveling to ref games.
Huh. I wonder if he’d be up for doing “Hey, Ref!” style articles.
We’ve talked about asking him about this, haven’t we?
I honestly don’t remember.
We’ve talked about it amongst ourselves but not asked him. I’ll talk to him.
SHHhhhhhh you wanna get suuued?
Steve Dangle’s World Cup Over-35 team:
oooh i like the new mustachio’d anon icon.
You all need to go on an old timey bank heist.
Too late… i am now…BATGIR!
That was quick!
I was gonna go for The Tallest, but Gir is just too adorable.
or are you Bruin bagel?
That’s the anti me. So is Donut Devil
Is there a baked good for every franchise? Croissant Canadian? Danish Duck?
Fritter Flyer? Muffin MapleLeafs?
Wouldn’t the ultimate Bruins pastry really be the bearclaw, though?
Strudel Senator and his bitter rival the Streusel Sabre
Leave the gun, take the coyote?
Yeah that also came to my mind.
Äppelkaka Avalanche! (We miss you, Carl!)
We have a winner!!!!
Awww….and here i was gonna go with Turnover Thras…oh….nevermind.
Tumbling Muffin Thrasher?
well it was more that they arent a team anymore…
gone the way of the Whale…
He gets a gold star for that shit.
Actually my old profile pic on the other site was pretty close to that dastardly oval.
So Puckdaddy thinks the team North America Jerseys are the best.
This is simply untrue. They are like something the bad guys in V for Vendetta wear if they wore those terribad Black Ice jerseys
The North American ones are so hilariously silly I almost like them. My personal ranking:
5. Czech Republic
7. North America
I’d put Czech ahead of USA, but yeah, otherwise thats about right
Yeah, those two are pretty much tied in my mind.
Fuck’n A they’re bad. So I don’t get it though. is the NA team just US/Canada under 23? What’s the point?
To pound a sense of reality into those self-absorbed, entitled millenials?
Sorry, my old man persona came out for a second there.
Now, get off my lawn!
They are Not Applicable.
I enjoy the dark color schemes for sports jerseys, so I rather like them. The A on the crest is a little too much like an oil derrick, though.
The Team Europe one is too generic & corporate.
The Europe one feels like an afterthought. “Oh shit, we still have one more we have to do and the deadline is in five minutes.”
I really enjoy the North America color schemes…the lettering seems a little…amateurish…but i like it
I like the North America one a bit, actually, and I’m not ashamed.
That said, the Europe one looks like the Whalers and the Canucks alt logos had a baby that fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.
If Team Europe wins the World Cup, will they play all their national anthems at once?
