As some of you may remember I was struck by a motor vehicle four years ago and was left with a TBI and likely disabled permanently.  Well, yesterday my awesome legal team negotiated a settlement that is going to change my life.  It isn't some astronomical amount, but it does give us a huge opportunity that was never there before, to move to my wifes hometown so she can be close to her parents, both of whom are ailing.  I'll likely be going dark for a while sometime in the next few months while we get everything in order before packing up and heading south.  I just wanted to thank every one of you ace degenerate hockey farkers for your support and for keeping me entertained.  Especially after the zamboni incident.

Hurrah, Flappyhead

Meanwhile, I had my own motor vehicle issue this week: my car was stolen Monday out of my apartment's parking lot. In broad daylight while I was working from home. Saw it in its parking spot at 7am while I was taking trash out. Was gone by 5pm when I wanted to go get some dinner.

My car was a 2014 Hyundai and it looks like Hyundais and Kias from then to more recently are being targeted because someone discovered a serious security flaw in them, making them super easy to steal without a key.

If you or someone you know owns a Hyundai or Kia, you or they might want to invest in some improved security for the car.

/If you want to do research, just google "Hyundai stolen" and you'll get a few articles with info

Happy to hear that was brought to a satisfactory resolution for you.  Good luck and my best to you, your wife, and her parents.  You've always added a lot to these threads, I'm looking forward to your return once you've resettled.  And speaking of the zambonis, thank you once again for introducing me to Steve Dangle.

I am encouraged that Zach Hyman and the Oilers are doing so well. And McDavid is humming along in his prime. Not an Oilers fan.

I expected that Montreal would not be as strong, but I didn't expect 0-5 and being trolled by the Hurricanes social media team.

Good/great news.  I've been wondering how you're doing, but as I see you posting regularly in assorted thread ... I didn't want to bother you & was working on the assumption that many posts at least means that you're more or less functional.  Good luck with the move & all that chaos.

Glad to hear you get some closure on that, we will miss you if you do go dark for awhile, which I certainly understand. I had to do the same for a bit myself. I hope everything works out as you intend.

On a lighter note, I played golf with my dad and Keon today. He said your Leafs are gonna suck again.😄

Hope to do it at some point, but I'd be surprised if we do it any time soon.  We were looking at doing it for my brother's birthday next spring, but he just moved to upstate New York for work and Covid hasn't quieted down nearly as much as we were hoping.

I ask mainly because I've got something for you... (if you want them)

Back in the 90s(?) we were passing through MI and stopped at a gas station/fast food place.  While there they were near the end of a Red Wings glasses promotion/giveaway with purchase & were looking to clear out the glasses.  So we got a set of four of them (instead of 1 per visit) with assorted big name RWs on them.  While cleaning up/out the other week I ran across them & realized that if I haven't used/looked at them in 25 or so years ... that I probably never would.  So if you want them, they're yours (& the BT tie in is that the head of the Trail is only about 4 miles from my house so it would be easy to give them to you while you're in the area).

Some cable providers in the Seattle area do have access to the CBC from what I hear so they should hopefully be able to see it through there. But yeah, the game should at least be available on local TV up there.

That's good to know, but I'm too far south in WA to get CBC, and too cheap to subscribe to every damn service. Eventually they'll be 82 subscriptions, with 1 game on each.

Seattle should just be glad that the ESPN commentator (because games exclusive to Hulu are also ESPN+ exclusive games) is a good one in Steve Levy. ESPN has one play-by-play person who I've seen do two ESPN+ games who is just boring to listen to.

Yep, exactly. Earlier this year I replaced the flavorizers, grates, and burner tubes, and it's as good as new. This thing's gonna outlast me.
