Your Help is Needed [Aug. 12th, 2004|02:26 am]
Hockey Falls

[music |Santana: All I Ever Wanted]

Americans and Canadians have come together as never before in our generation. We have banded together to overcome tremendous adversity. We have weathered direct attacks on our own soil, wars overseas, corporate/government scandal, layoffs, unemployment, stock price plunges, droughts, fires, mad cow, SARS, high gasoline prices, and a myriad of economic and physical disasters both great and small.

But now, we must come together once again to overcome our greatest challenge yet: Hundreds of Professional Hockey players in our two nations are going to be locked out, forced to live at well below the seven-figure salary level. And as if that weren't bad enough they could be deprived of their life giving pay for several months, possibly longer, as a result of the
upcoming lockout situation.

But you can help!

For only $20,835 a month, about $694.50 a day (that's less than the cost of a large screen projection TV) you can help an NHL player remain economically viable during his time of need. This contribution by no means solves the problem as it barely covers the minimum salary, but it's a start, and every little bit will help!

Although $700 may not seem like a lot of money to you, to an NHL hockey player it could mean the difference between spending the lockout golfing in Florida or on a Mediterranean cruise. For you, seven hundred dollars is nothing more than a month's rent, half a mortgage payment, or a month of medical insurance, but to a hockey player, $700 will partially replace his daily salary.

Your commitment of less than $700 a day will enable a player to buy that home entertainment center, trade in the year-old Lexus for a new Ferrari, or enjoy a weekend in Rio.

HOW WILL YOU KNOW THAT YOU'RE HELPING?

Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the player you sponsor. Detailed information about his stocks, bonds, 401(k), real estate, and other investment holdings will be mailed to your home. Plus, upon signing up for this program, you will receive an unsigned photo of the player lounging during the lockout on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean (for a signed photo, please include an additional $150). Put the photo on your refrigerator to remind you of other peoples' suffering.

HOW WILL HE KNOW YOU'RE HELPING?

Your NHL player will be told that he has a SPECIAL FRIEND who just wants to help in a time of need. Although the player won't know your name, he will be able to make collect calls to your home via a special operator in case additional funds are needed for his unforeseen expenses.

YES, I WANT TO HELP!

I would like to sponsor a locked out NHL player. My preference is
(check below):
[ ] Forward
[ ] Defenseman
[ ] Goaltender
[ ] Entire team
(Please call our 900 number to ask for the cost of a specific team - $10
per minute)
[ ] Jaromir Jagr (Higher cost: $32,000 per day)

Please charge the account listed below $694.50 per day for the duration of the lockout. Please send me a picture of the player I have sponsored, along with an Jaromir Jagr 2001 Income Statement and my very own Bob Goodenow (Executive Director of the NHLPA player's Union) pin to wear proudly on my hat (include $80 for hat).

I might weep.

Blackhawks goaltender Jocelyn Thibault and winger Eric Daze will sign autographs at HawkQuarters from 2-4 pm on Saturday, Feb. 21.

Oh. Em. Eff. Gee.

I'm just...I dunno, at a total loss.
I've been waiting for TBo to be signing at something that wasn't $assload (even if it is for charity, poor is poor)...for like two and a half years.
And Daze...I mean, just getting a pic with the big lug.
It'd be like thisCollapse )

Best yet, I don't have to work that weekend.

CALLING ALL HOCKEY FANS FROM NJ [Feb. 9th, 2004|01:36 am]
Hockey Falls

montrizzle
I have just created a hockey community called jerseyhockey. The community is meant to talk about anything in New Jersey hockey, whether it be the New Jersey Devils, Atlantic City Boardwalk Bullies, Trenton Titans, high school or college hockey in New Jersey, or even just to talk about the pick-up game you played today.

If you want to join just to talk about the Devils, fine. But remember, this is a community for all that is hockey in New Jersey, so don't be surprised if someone starts asking where the best place to get an M-1 stick near them.

Rival fans (Rangers, Flyers) who are from New Jersey are encouraged to join. I want this community to accurately represent hockey in New Jersey, and we all know it aint just Devils fans out there...

I'll be moderating the community, but am pretty easy-going. I like to pick a fight here and there and don't see anything wrong with it. Just keep the discussions on hockey in Jersey and keep the jabs above the belt.

LONG LIVE HOCKEY IN NEW JERSEY!!!

When two NHL hockey players collide, their pads and body tissues can absorb enough energy to power a 100-watt light bulb for a minute and a half.
