      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I'd rather watch a bunch of kids who still give a damn get their asses kicked, rather than watch a series of NHL All-Star games played by a bunch of guys who look like they couldn't care less what happens. Sure, I would have been happy if they'd won, but I was happier to hear they got the toss. Fuck'em.

 

It's also a rip-off that it's become a reward to the fading stars, rather than a chance for the young guys to show their stuff. Not letting Sidney Crosby or Eric Staal play in the Olympics because they are too young and inexperienced in the NHL? gimme a break!

 

Hockey is still the best combination of speed, agility, gracefulness, agressiveness---you name it. I don't care if it's NHL or playing the beer leagues yourself. damn what a sport! bigdrink.gif

Boy, doesn't that just warm your heart? You work so hard for so many years trying to instill your love of hockey in people on the far side of the world, patiently coaching and encouraging them, hoping some day their children will take to the ice with the same joyful enthusiasm you remember so well from your own youth.

 

And you wonder sometimes if it's worth the effort and the stress and the worry, and then you see film like this and... well... I gotta admit, it brings tears to my eyes. I'm so damned proud of those Slovenian kids. They've come so far, so fast... sniff... it seems like just yesterday they were... sniff... I'm, I'm sorry, I can't go on. I need a minute... cry.gif
