"This goes out to all you Easterners who wonder about this so-called Battle of Alberta and what the deal is.

Calgary's Red Mile (17 Avenue SW): Police outnumber fans 5 to 1 (it seems). Full riot gear on hand ready to tackle any unruly fans. Get the tear gas ready, some delinquent Flames fan dares to wave a large flag! $50 fine! What? Some guy honking his horn? $250 fine!!! Those chickies better not bare their breasts or more fines will follow! This **stard is yelling too loud! $100 fine! Many jaywalkers are ticketed and fined! Oh the humanity! Mayor Dave Bronconnier pleads with Calgarians - please respect the cops! He admits to being so wrong in telling Calgarians they could head down to the Red Mile to enjoy the celebrations. Head home, stay home and lock your docks! There are jaywalkers out there!

Edmonton's Blue Mile (Whyte Avenue): 49 people arrested and 10 people are stabbed. Numerous assaults have taken place. Rowdy fans smash bus shelter windows and litter the street with beer bottles and broken glass. 4 criminal charges are laid - one for assault, one for impaired driving, and 2 for mischief. The street reaks of urine as rowdies urinate (and defacate) as they see fit. Mayor Stephen Mandel tells fans, "Try not to be such a yahoo"."


are you serious?????

thats insane, should have seen london when canada won the 2002 olympics...same stuff, minus the fine and the cops, hell the cops were celebrating too.

when was waving a flag or honking a horn a fine????

that is unreal

Posted: 5/16/2006 11:08:41 PM
Heya All!

Venomous: Round 2 results have not yet been tabulated. Those will be tabulated after the Edm/SJ series is over. As to how points are awarded, you get 5 points for guessing the correct teams for round predictions, another 5 for correctly guessing the number of games played (but only if you guessed the right team). For individual games, you get 1 point if you guessed the correct team to win, another 5 if you called the correct score, and if the above criteria are met, you get 1 additional point if OT is called correctly (for more on OT rules, see previous posts! LOL!). Once posted, you cannot amend round predictions. Individual games may be amended as long as the game has not yet started. I think it seems like you haven't moved much on the standings because you missed a lot of individual games whereas some of us made formal guesses at each and every game played. Hope this helps!

Smack: Yes, I agree. Edmontonians are a bunch of copycats looking to outdo our Red Mile with their pathetic display of dumbness! On the other hand, I do believe the cops and the city here in Calgary over-reacted. Yes, in 2004, we celebrated here right up to the finals Game 7 with no major incidents and this year, we get fined for waving flags and honking horns? Bloody ridiculous!

GT99: Unfortunately, I am serious! Cops ticketed fans for waving large flags, yelling too loud, honking their horns, and jaywalking! Us Calgarians are SO dangerous!!!!


My prediction for tomorrow:

Edmonton will end the sucking Sharks season 6-3 AGAIN!!!!

Round 2 Results
Posted: 5/17/2006 9:00:16 PM
Here are the results for everyone who made formal predictions for Round 2 games. Funny how most of us bombed on the NJ series! Remember, 5 points for correct team to win and an additional 5 points for correct number of games played (if you got the correct team).

Brian: Only one series correct: Ana/Col, 5 points

Chief: Two series correct: Ana/Col & Buff/Ott, 10 points

Q: Two series correct: Buff/Ott & Car/NJ (one of the few who got this one), 10 points

lady_bugg: One series guessed and it was correct: Edm/SJ, 5 points

Venomous: Two series correct: Ana/Col & Buff/Ott, 10 points

leafslady: 3 out of 4!!!! Only missed the NJ/Car series! 15 points

Simulation: Two series correct: Buff/Ott & Ana/Col, 10 points

Aquafish: Two series correct: Ana/Col & Edm/SJ, 10 points

Rezzyl: Sorry dude, 0 correct

Riot: Only 1 series correct: Buff/Ott, 5 points

blueeyeddvl: One series correct: Car/NJ, 5 points

wantsumfun: One series correct & correct number of games: Edm/SJ, 10 points, and if you switched some teams around, you would've kicked butt!

easy_going: Sorry dude, 0 correct

Smilnlady: 0 correct (I'm surprised!)

mysterious5: Sorry dude, 0 correct

Smack: Two series correct: Ana/Col & Buff/Ott, 10 points

kanadaa: One series correct & correct number of games: Edm/SJ, 10 points

So after two rounds of play, we stand at:

Chief: 71 points
leafslady: 71 points
Brian: 66 points
Riot: 66 points
Q: 64 points
Smack: 51 points
wantsumfun: 50 points
Smilnlady: 48 points
Venomous: 46 points
HungryEyes: 35 points
gr8_1: 25 points
Greg: 20 points
Blueeyeddvl: 11 points
kanadaa: 11 points
TimDogg: 10 points
Simulation: 10 points
Aquafish: 10 points
Mattboy: 7 points
lady_bugg: 7 points
Phillyboy: 5 points
mysterious5: 2 points
bdon1010: 1 point
munch 27: 1 point
Budchick: 1 point
epic1231: 1 point
Justin Case Sr: 1 point

leafslady is on deck to win some major awards if she keeps this up!

I'm surprised at how badly we all performed in Round 2 overall (damn NJ!).

Round 3 begins now. Cast your wagers!

EAST: Carolina VS Buffalo
WEST: Anaheim VS Edmonton

Deadline is Saturday at noon!

Oops! My Bad!
Posted: 5/18/2006 7:09:33 PM
Deadline for Round 3 predictions is Friday at 6pm. I repeat Friday (as in tomorrow) at 6pm! I failed to realize that Edm/Ana got started right away!!!!

My Round 3 Predictions:

Edm over Ana in 7 (I'm thinking Edmonton will be the Calgary of 2004, only to lose in the finals!)

Buffalo over Carolina in 6

For the actual games:

Tomorrow, Edmonton is still fresh. Anaheim has had too long a break and is rusty. Edm wins 4-2.

Saturday, Buffalo will win for same reasons. 4-2.

On a side note, at work, our store has a bet with West Edmonton Mall in a contest. If we win, they have to buy us ice cream and popsicles! If we lose, we have to cheer for the Oilers for the rest of the season!

Posted: 5/20/2006 5:35:01 PM
After Games 1, everything is looking good!!!!

Blueeyeddvl: There you go! 2 out of 2! 2 points

leafslady (moves into top position): Continues her winning streak and came very close to getting the scores (in both games)! 2 points

Riot: Woo! Woo! 2 out of 2 as well! If only Buff could've got that empty netter! 2 points

Chief (as he loses the lead to leafslady): One game (Buff/Car) correct. 1 point

Smack: One game correct (Buff/Car) and correct score! 1+5=6 points

Smilnlady: One game correct (Edm/Ana) = 1 point

Brian: One game correct (Buff/Car) = 1 point

Nicola (welcome): One game guessed and it was correct (Edm/Ana) = 1 point

Q, Venomous, & wantsumfun (should've switched them): Sorry, none correct.

So after Games 1, leafslady takes the lead as Chief, Riot, and Brian nip at her heels for top spot! What will happen after Games 2?

Chief: 72 points
Riot: 68 points
Brian: 67 points

Game 2 Results
Posted: 5/22/2006 8:37:17 PM
Hello y'all! I must say, most of us did not fare very well in this bout of predictions, with 2 exceptions:

Smilnlady (jumping into 7th spot): Good on ya! Both games correct and one (Edm/Ana) right on the money! I must admit I know how it's feeling not to get the scores right in SO LONG!!! 2+5=7 points

kanadaa: Both correct as well! 2 points

Q: One correct (Buff/Car): 1 point

Riot: One correct (Edm/Ana): 1 point

Smack, Chief, Brian, & leafslady: 0 points

The race is definately getting tight! Do not miss a single game!

BTW, our store beat West Edmonton Mall so we DON'T have to cheer for the Oil!!! (Unless, of course, we want to!) I'm still cheering for the Buffalo boys! Go Sabres!

leafslady: 73 points
Chief: 72 points
Riot: 69 points
Brian: 67 points
Q: 65 points
Smack: 57 points
Smilnlady: 56 points

Game 3 Results Part 1
Posted: 5/24/2006 3:23:09 PM
Okay, I know the Buff/Car game hasn't started yet but I'm gonna just comment on the Edm/Ana game. I guess a lot of us got screwed by Edmonton (or Anaheim depending on how you look at it)! In fact, it was again the ladies (and one guy) who called it!

Riot, Smilnlady, leafslady & wantsumfun = 1 point

Chief, Brian, Q & Smack: Best to give up on the (sitting) Ducks! They're bringing you down!

Q & Brian, thanks! You guys are sweet! And to everyone else on here too, thanks for making this thread fun!



Now let's and wait for the Sabres to kick some Cane a***!

Game 3 Results Part 1
Posted: 5/24/2006 11:37:30 PM
Way to go Sabres!!!! Woo! Hoo!

I have clearly had a little too much but that's okay.

We all nailed this one (except Q - sorry bud). Three of us even got the scores right!!!!!
wantsomefun and Smack both called the scores but you both also called OT (which didn't happen). Riot13, on the other hand, called the score with no OT and therefore should be awarded an extra point!!!! Ha! Ha! Don't worry, I'm not about to go changing the rules now. 6 points each

Smilnlady, leafslady, Brian, Chief & blueeyeddvl also score 1 point each!

So, in addition to the points already scored by Smilnlady, leafslady, Riot13, and wantsumfun in the Edm/Ana game, here's where we're at:

AND RIOT HAS TAKEN THE TOP SPOT AWAY FROM LEAFSLADY!!!! Woo! Hoo!

Very tight race, folks, going into Game 4!!! It's still anyone's game!!!!

Riot: 76 points
leafslady: 75 points
Chief: 73 points
Brian: 68 points
Q: 65 points
Smack: 63 points
Smilnlady: 58 points
wantsumfun: 57 points

Game 4 Results
Posted: 5/26/2006 11:19:25 PM
I've noticed a trend here:

1) Q & Blueeyeddvl like to go against the grain.

2) The ladies think alike (Riot, leafslady, Smilnlady).

3) Chief, Smack & Brian think alike.

4) Most have us have decided who we want to cheer for and are not willing to bet against "our teams".

In Game 4, it was Q & Blueeyeddvl who came out on top! Both had 2 out of 2 for 2 points each!

Chief, Brian & Smack got 1 point each for the Ana/Edm game.

Riot, leafslady, Smilnlady, kanadaa & wantsumfun all got blanked!!!

The race for top spot intensifies as a mere single point (each) separates the top 3!

Riot: 76 points
leafslady: 75 points
Chief: 74 points
Brian: 69 points
Q: 67 points
Smack: 64 points
Smilnlady: 58 points
wantsumfun: 57 points

Just A Thought
Posted: 5/26/2006 11:26:40 PM
I thought it was weird the other day, watching the Buffalo/Carolina game. Being that the game was in the US and both teams are from the US, I found it odd that they sang both the US and Canadian anthems. I know there are Canadian players on the teams but there are also European players. Is that weird or have I just been not paying attention for all these years?

And Who Will Be Having The Roast Duck?
Posted: 5/28/2006 12:09:42 AM
Again, it's the ladies who will be feasting on the roast duck!

Woo! Hoo!

Smilnlady, leafslady & Riot = 1 point

leafslady, I believe the game was in Buffalo but I'm not sure. Maybe I'll pay closer attention tomorrow and see if they sing both anthems again!

I've been saying for some time that the Oilers will be the Flames of 2004. They will lose in Game 6 or 7 of the final. (Mind you if it's Carolina they'll be playing - God forbid- then even I'll be pulling for the Oil to win)!

Game 5 Results

Everyone's assuming Buffalo will be the team to make it out of the East (except you of course, Q!) but the reality is, they can't score if their life depended on it! And their lives DO depend on winning the next 2 games!!

Q, Smilnlady, sunshine, & Smack cash in. Smack also gets 5+1=6 points for getting the correct score and calling OT. Riot smacks herself because had she reversed the teams, she too, would have an additional 7 points!!!!

Chief & Brian, better luck next time!

Add the points scored by Riot, leafslady & Smilnlady from the Edm/Ana game and we have the following:

Riot: 77 points
leafslady: 76 points
Chief: 74 points
Smack: 71 points
Brian: 69 points

Game 7 Prediction
Posted: 5/30/2006 8:07:44 PM
I can't seem to be able to go with a team that I don't want to win. Even though I think Carolina plays better (most of the time), has a better goalie, has better offense, and is most likely going to win Game 7 (and the Eastern Conference), I am still going to predict Buffalo 3 Carolina 2 (OT).

Game 7:Buffalo @ Carolina Eastern Conference Finals!!!!!!!
Posted: 6/1/2006 1:29:27 AM
So this is it, boys & girls! Game 7 will determine our Playoff Predictions winner here (for free beer on me should you wish to come here to Calgary and join me for the Stanley Cup finals!)! Good luck to all! Looks like the general consensus here is that Buffalo will win (sorry Q) but really, I do have a bad feeling that Carolina will win (even though my prediction is for Buffalo). But again, best of luck to all! Maybe we'll have a bonus round (for fun) after Round 3 is determined and done with.

And The Results Please!!!!!
Posted: 6/1/2006 7:21:57 PM
I went with my heart and not my gut, and as a result,

I knew Carolina would manhandle the Sabres but could not in good conscience, want or pick them to win. The majority of us were rooting for the Sabres. How sad for us.

I went back a few times to check this out. Q, if you had not changed your prediction, you would've gotten 6 points!!!! Why did you change your prediction last minute??? However, Carolina did win, and yourself, Smilnlady & Blueeyeddvl came up with 1 point each! But is it too little too late? We'll see after Round 3 predictions get tabulated for our BIG WINNER!!!

So, without Round 3 predictions, we are here:

Riot: 78 points
leafslady: 77 points
Chief: 75 points
Smack: 71 points
Q: 70 points
Brian: 69 points
Smilnlady: 62 points
wantsumfun: 57 points
Venomous: 46 points
