    I like all the things they talked about from the "5 things you need to know." I like the whole intimidation idea, and face washing. Yeah, it takes away from gameplay of a GAME but it adds immersion. I am all about immersion.

    We're still just 3 games in, with CCF being up 2-1. I messaged him on Live a few days ago when he was on but he never replied.

    CCF, if you read this let me know when you are available to finish the series!

    ah, hotstepped a bit last night with Laonar. apparently my mic was having issues. Recently got a new headset and still figuring this thing out. I feel like a borg from star trek with it, seriously like a million wires everywhere. Worth it though as I now have full surround sound strapped to my freakin' head, that and it keeps the old ball and chain happy as I'm not making noise at night anymore :P

    Sorry. The girlfriend has been over this week. Would've responded when you messaged me but we were playing Rock Band and I can't type with a guitar :P.

    I'll be on tonight probably around 9 pacific time. Probably tomorrow night too.

    Game 4 Tampa 3 Colorado 2
    Game 5 Colorado 3 Tampa 2
    Game 6 Tampa 4 Colorado 3 (OT)

    Tampa advances 4 games to 2.

    Wow. I was up 2-1 in the 3rd (I believe) in game 5 and lost. Down 3-1 in the 2nd in game 6.

    What a series, pond...Seriously. Fuck. You're going down mr banana pancakes!

    - If there was a season 3 I would be the San Jose Sharks because we both know how to tank in the playoffs

    -For as great as our series was it ended on the weakest goal possible

    -One (1) Xbox 360 controller was harmed in the making of this playoff series

    Yeah, that overtime goal was pretty shitty. I still jumped up in the air and yelled like a little girl :P. I take video games way too seriously sometimes.

    Honestly, though. I have an incredible amount of fun playing someone like you at this game. When you get 2 players separated by so little the game really shines (minus the most of the time completely random and ridiculous amount of penalties).

    So, just a quick look ahead to the next real NHL season. Would any of you want to join a Hotsteppers ESPN Fantasy Hockey League? I am thinking of doing it just for us here in G&T that are a part of the Hotsteppers.

    Draft on ESPN's website? Duuuuuuh.

    This is regular ol fantasy hockey. Nothing to do with NHL 09 besides it everyone in the ESPN league being people that have played Hotsteppers (or have just been active here).

    I'm in but I must warn you I'll murder you all. In my main league this year I had one of the last picks and still won the league.

    Not that I'm bragging or anything...Okay, maybe just a little.

    I haven't placed better than like 5th since around maybe 2004? This year? I was in 4 leagues. Three were Yahoo leagues in which I only checked to dress players and drop/add every maybe once or twice a month. I placed first in two of those and second in another. The ESPN league that I loved and drop/added every day? Didn't make the playoffs. Ha.

    you could count me in on this. ESPN has awesome custom stat categories. my league this year we gave points for hits and blocked shots to skew everything away from the all offense bias in fantasy. worked pretty good.

    would you do rotisserie scoring or head to head. this year I did head to head, not the norm for hockey, but think I may actually like it better.

    Head to head is what keeps people coming back. I hate rotisserie.
