Second, 50 is the new 40. My grandfather died when he was 50; my father is 78 and still going strong. If we were projecting third year player stats then I'd say I'm not yet at mid-life.

Third, when it comes to technology, I think I'm pretty comfortable. Been in high-tech since before there was an internet. I know more about the PVR/TV side of the CE market than pretty much everyone I know. Except for this one guy; he definitely knows more than I do about automating and consolidating all his home electronics.

Lastly, it was a friggin' joke!

How's your lawn looking? Flat & Green?

I wish. I hate watering. I hear May/June are going to be quite dry. Good, I say, less mowing.

Or trying to set up his VCR to record YouTube.

I guess we've seen the last of him for awhile then because:

a) He smashed his VCR to bits because it kept blinking "12:00" in spite of multiple attempts to set the clock.

b) He's gone to the "Radio Shack" to get a new one.

Notice how I wrote "the" in front of "Radio Shack." Beer

I actually don't have a VCR any more. Have a box of tapes somewhere, if the kids ever find it they'll have one of those nostalgic moments ("Oh, look! Barney!") and I'll have to either buy one or pay someone to convert them to disk.

Here's a little stroll down memory lane. My first VHS VCR a Mitsubishi HiFi model and cost $1300. That was back in the early '80s so it's probably around $5K in today's dollars. And we b***h about Blu Ray players costing $500???!

My family had to wait for Candle to get into the VCR game.Yes. Candle. I think it was about 400 bucks. My grandmother had a top-loading Quasar that cost 800 and still actually works. Laugh1

Candle? There's a name from the past.

And Quasar kinda looks like a name from the future, doesn't it? Vertigo

I have no idea what you mean.
Me neither.

I just meant that, for those who say Stammer shouldn't be a Hart finalist, the rest of the NHL seems to disagree.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him win the Lindsay but not the Hart.

Oh, I don't think he'll win the Hart. I just think he's a worthy finalist. I think he probably came third in voting.

Driving home I heard on the Team1200 that the Team Alfie game will be "tomorrow afternoon". At the IIHF site it was listed as a 20:15 Start and gave Stockholm as the location. I assumed that meant 8:15PM in Stockholm time. But that would make it 1:15AM Saturday morning over here.

So I think what this means is that the game will be 8:15PM *Eastern*, which would make it 2:15PM in Stockholm, hence the "afternoon" that I heard on the radio.

Phew! Won't need the PVR to record that one. Sarcasm

P.S. The sarcastic smiley is because I am making a joke.

TSN has the schedule on their website. They list the Sweden/Norway game at 1:15 PM Friday...

Ah, I think I understand now. The IIHF site must have converted to Eastern but did not adjust to DST.

How was the game? Anyone got scores? We should have a thread.
