    Your posts have become increasingly annoying, and misconstrued my comments. That other posts was more about humping product because they are here on the board, and people getting butt hurt when you call them out. But that is here nor there. Keep your words out of my mouth.

    How so? It is a matter of physics: lining up a physical body to intercept the trajectory of another physical body.

    I have been on the receiving end of both in my youth, and honestly say that connecting on that fast of a pitch with an extension of your limbs take more precision. Now does that take anything away from hockey, not in the least... different sports, different strengths.
    And in order to place oneself in front of a puck, the goalie must use proper positioning gauging the progress, position, speed and possible shot capabilities of 1-5 individuals; a batter is static. A goalie must then decide whom is shooting, and react with the whole body; a batter must do the same, to a much lesser degree! A goalie may be screened, contacted and shoved; a batter is not. I agree, apples v., oranges.

    You cannot see the precision, because it is not your sport, or you have not played. I could still play hockey with a fractured wrist, taped and cortisoned to hell... but I couldn't put the bat on a ball if I tried.
    Though not my favorite sport, I played. My sister was highly involved in softball as well, with my Father being the Coach of a few provincial teams [different animals, I know]. I respect your position, but please do not assume I feel Hockey takes more precision because I know nothing about Baseball; I am sure you would not like the same treatment.

    I feel Hockey takes more precision, because it does. How you can compare Brodeur facing a streaking A. Ovechkin or Sidney Crosby, with Pujols at the plate facing a Sabathia is beyond me. No comparison, due to the myriad of factors that a hockey player must consider, that baseball players do not. (Unless the catcher is now allowed to bodycheck the hitter.)

  4. And Lacrosse takes more precision and skill than either! [I believe you were saying that!]

    I was a goalie, and found it very natural. You are simplifying the game of baseball down to a few words, when knowing well and good that is not the fact. You of all people with your debating skills should know you do not simplify.

    A thrown ball, and that is all it is? No speed changes, no curving, no dipping, no rising? The timing required, is not a factor? The timing for stealing, or a hit and run?

    Some of the best hockey players are just brute force. (And dont take this as me saying that is a bad thing)

    I wasn't even trying to argue which is better, i simply stated why a baseball player is taken out when an injury occurs... but the defensiveness reared its ugly head.

    All those things certainly exist, Adams! I am merely saying that they all exist in Hockey, with the addition of physical contact plus considering the positioning of more than one individual.

    For example, a pitcher must consider body positioning, the individual at the plate, arm mechanics, finger positioning and the type of pitch thrown, and; the batter, in turn, must consider all of these things, in addition to the count, the status of the game and whom is in what field - very precise, I agree. However, the batter need not consider all of these factors in addition to being hit; and the pitcher need not consider all of these factors in addition to being screened. To compare apples v., apples, the opposing team would be able to screen the pitcher, and the catcher could check the batter.

    Well, I wasn't intending to offend your delicate sensibilities you schoolgirl!

    Then we can agree, its different precision then. Like I said, i am not discounting hockey in the least.

    As for my sensibilities... I think I am going to make you a cake in my easy bake to make everything right again!

    When metallica was here a couple months ago. My wife hooked me up with tickets and I was bumping elbows with jansen and stasny. Jansen was pretty cool. We talked for a while between sets!! Fun night!
    Oh, and BTW... you can catch me at the game... i will be the one with the Blues Jersey on!

    Hence the 9-1-1 record from the last 11 games before the playoffs... must wins... so they did.

    quick little hijack here. I see your a IBE rep. Whats the deal with Formex? I see that its bio-availability is supposed to be greater than that of regular oral formestane, but does it even compare to TD Formestane. Because TD Formestane is hard to beat!

    Honestly I want the Blues to do well too.. I loved Brett Hull when I was a kid and the Blues are one of the very few teams that never do anything to piss me off.

    No Paul Kariya will make tonight's game kind of difficult though -- but good luck to all ye Blues fans.

    Huge Pens, Pirates (shut up), and Steelers fan but I do like the Blues.. I would love to see them come back and beat the **** out of Vancouver (although I have no problem with that team either, it would just be epic).

    Also, I'm a huge non-resident Blue Jackets fan right now as well!

    We looked poor in our last game, but I suspect we will take a 3-1 lead tonight.

    Absolutely man, I have the same suspicions. I'm not sure what the problem was last game but just absolutely nothing was going right.. sloppy play all over the place and Fleury was shook up after that first quick goal.

    Also, the officiating was terrible IMO. There were several calls that were ignored -- how about Hartnell throwing his stick and getting away with it? what the **** was that? -- along with several calls that should've never been made (on both sides), so hopefully the officiating is a little better too.

    I'll tell you what, the constant booing about absolutely everything really started to piss me off towards the end of the game. If you want to boo Crosby that's one thing (I don't like it but what can we do), but I couldn't believe they booed Orpik after Briere sticked him in the face and he was bleeding all over the place. I hate the Flyers with a passion but I wouldn't boo Timonen if he was leaving the ice with a face full of blood.

    Those are Flyers fans, though: crude, loud, abrasive and annoying!

    I feel we just had a lapse of concentration, and that we will close out the series with two straight wins. In our first two, we looked masterful.

    In terms of Hartnell, he is an unpredictable and idiotic hockey player who plays too far over the edge to be of use. He threw his glove in the same fashion in a game earlier this year.

  17. Hawks vs Flames series is heating up. LOL refs letting Calgary get away with all kinds of **** and it started to boil over last night.

    Well last nights game was good. I have lost my voice from yelling constantly. We lost in OT when Barret Jackman gave up the puck right in front of the goal for the second time in the game! We also got screwed by the officials. we had a puck cross the goal line but they called it back saying that the whistle was blown before it crossed the line. The officials totally took us out of the game! However, It was funny having 20,000 people in unison yelling "ref you suck" over and over again. Watch out for next year guys. The Blues are going to be hot!! now GO CARDS!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Go B's

  21. not a huge NHL fan but after watching the US vs Canada a minute ago I think I am going to try and watch it again. I have never enjoyed watching hockey games on tv but I have always loved going to see them live. I will give the NHL on tv another shot now.
