GO KINGS GO
who /hotcocoandschnapps/ here for some california cold weather hockey watchin?
I prefer crown and cider, but I am enjoying this cold weather.
Don't mind me, just being a Kings fan for a day because I want the Blues to lose.
[spoiler]It's easy though because I like the Kings.
Cold as fuck in the winter (goes down to -40 sometimes, which is the same in celsius as fahrenheit). Great, friendly people though. Very affordable cost of living, which is why it's a city of losers and part timers. But along with that you get the fact that Winnipeg is noticably full of what you might call "working class folks." A friend of mine from Calgary once asked me why everyone in Winnipeg dresses like they just got off a train.
But for a city it's nice, because it's got big city amenities without having a lot of big city problems. It's very spread out and sparsely populated, so there's no smog, for example. On the other hand, there are no freeways so it takes like a good 40 minutes to drive from one side of the city to the other.
I personally love Winnipeg and I think it's a great place to live, even though I don't live there anymore.
Not my photo but it gives you an idea how great the city can look in the winter. Lots of trees, lots of hoar frost.
Also here's a good photo blog of Winnipeg for anyone interested in pretending they live in Canada's Christmas Capital.
Don't know what it's like to love your city? Someone asked what Winnipeg was like.
winnipeg can be a cruel mistress though. I've been beat up and robbed by both randoms and the police on various occasions, seen a few people get stabbed and been at many parties where people have gotten bear maced. This city can get super fucked super quick
Yeah, the crime sucks, and so do the cops. I'm sorry for what happened to you.
Then you hang out with the wrong crowd m8.
I've been stopped by the cops many times, drunk and with drugs on me, they let me go because I'm white and drive an Audi. And I wear glasses.
Don't pretend like downtown crime doesn't happen. Muggings are extremely common in Winnipeg because of how quiet it gets at night. It's easy to be caught helpless and alone.
But I have heard that most of our violent crime is gang-related or non-random (like between people who know each other).
Anyways we are kind of hijacking this boring ass thread. Someone needs to fucking score already. Blues goalie is a beast though.
I saw a vice documentary where people get together after work and on weekends to try and fish bodies out of the river. Apparently its a big problem with people getting dumped in there
>this game's been interesting
Who the fuck are these commentators?
just be glad it didn't stay in place and break his leg again senpai :^)
all these great saves and that's
the softie that goes in
i'll take it!
Did the goal not end the powerplay or does NBC just not know how hockey works?
Still won't be as sick as the Ducks thirds
Come on now NBC
I'm just now realizing there are two different Old Spice guys.
Anyways what are you all gonna do during the break?
Reaves is the Blues Brown
he literally killed kopi THIS GAME
Wow, I never get to use this one
I have some ancient ones on this hard drive. I should consolidate them sometime and dump them in a game thread.
