Just deleted a junkload of stupidity from the past few pages. If I got rid of your post accidentally and your post was NOT part of the lunacy, I apologize, just repost it below. Some of you were posting faster than I could click, and as I say, I may have hid stuff which wasn't a problem.
I'm now going to go back and see if I missed any of the original offending posts.
EDIT: Okay, went and cleaned out the carburetor, did an oil and transmission flush, so this thread should hum along nicely now.
PS - Having been married to a hockey player approximately four thousand years ago, the irony in all of this is that the professional players aren't that hung up and insane about teams as rabid 'fans' are. And fans have absolutely nothing invested in their teams other than possibly having made a bet on a game.
I could understand fan loyalty a little better back before free agents came into play in the 80s, because then your team, was your team for a long time. Nowadays they come and go for the money and the possibility of working with a coach who will get them to a championship; the players don't give a fig about our towns.
