    The Venting Spot

    I'm not trying to. Just think we should wait a week or so for this to die down instead of posting it while it's at the top of the news articles for them.

    Yah. I think the only good thing going for them is the fact that the driver wasn't intoxicated.

    They got into an accident, and while there was no injury (reported) they were found with an open bottle vodka and empty beer cans in the car. It's the fact that when you google these players names the first thing that comes up is the news or their court summons. Not something that is really a good thing we want people to think of. It takes away all the positives of the article.

    The Venting Spot

    Two of our hockey school graduates (former students) won the NCAA title with BC and recently got arrested for underage possession of alcohol while driving. Boss still wants me to run articles on them and feature them on our website

    Nike Bauer being sued

    I'm not debating anything either, just trying to clear up what a prior post was inferring.

    I also think that as Chadd said, EPP will better prevent skull fracture, but will do worse in prevention of concusions. Which sounds more protective?

    How about VN Foam or fxpp?

    The "Holy Crap, Did You See That Goal?" Thread

    Not sure how he got that velocity on the pass. And for the lacrosse pickup, it's kind of crazy that he has no tape on the heel half of his blade. Definitely used a significant amount of force to pick that one up.

    The Smartphone Thread

    Free publicity yes. But negative publicity is not a good thing. I know publicity is publicity, but I can't see how apple would risk a negative image after how great they look in the eyes of their fans (over this whole ordeal). As for Giz, this definitely works well for them barring the DA doesn't find any incriminating evidence.

    They've got one right here. I wear it so it just touches under my chin and I can snugly fit a finger in between, maybe two as per directed. It doesn't need to be skin tight on you, but leaving anything more than an inch and it's improper use. Which sadly is what most kids do.

    The Smartphone Thread

    I read this last night and am still not sure if Apple has anything to do with this. I can't understand why the police would raid his house over this incident without some sort of outside pressure, but I can't see what Apple has to gain with this. The case was closed, they got the phone back. Everyone knows the story and knows it wasn't an inside job to steal the phone from apple, and if it was Giz had nothing to do with it. Either way it'll be interesting to see what comes of this.

    The Sweet Spot

    At a friends wedding and was able to buy the Canucks game on my iPhone to watch. I bought if halfway through the first period and I'm guessing the payment didn't go through right away as it wouldn't work for the first two periods but I was able to watch the last 6 minutes of the third. decent quality too. Nothing great but I'm sure if there was wifi it would have looked good.

    Post Your Team's Jersey(s) Thread

    There's a local Spring team with Dogde Ram jerseys as well. Except they are hideous. I can't find a picture but the colour on the jersey is red at the shoulders and fades to pink at the waist. Has a giant dodge ram logo over the stomach and back so the numbers are in a pale blue. And for an added touch they have the Carolina Hurricanes logo on the shoulder. Just an all around awful jersey.

    Blackstone Flat-Bottom V Thread

    Race4lastplace that's a great way to describe it - you do need to use both numbers together. As for holding an edge, I personally don't feel you lose your edges faster, but I feel that they have a higher failure rate. I know that sounds like a contradiction but I find the edges don't wear out any quicker, they're just more prone to roll out. I've gone almost 10 hours on my TO's with 100/75 (3 games, 2 hour drop in, 3 ref games) and will probably just need a sharpen now. I think it may just be an adjustment period that's needed, or extra care with your blades.
