nov's name and AVI, not quite a match? (in Off-topic)

j'bob February 4 2010 12:57 AM EST

HOCKEY is awesome. But I'm confused as to why you'd have a name like the one you do and an AVI like the one you do.





Well to be fair, you did beat them... ONE TIME OUT OF THREE!!!!
(Two losses in the Shark Tank... OUCH) I think your tank needs a plecostomus to clean it out. Our suckieness must have made it too dirty. :D

(On an unrelated note, I actually posted this in reply to an older thread of novice's but it did NOT bump it up? Is that an issue... yes I know nov, it's because of the Hawks, but seriously, I've never seen that happen)

j'bob February 4 2010 12:59 AM EST

Lol and I'm not to Sharp either, cause it should read, one time out of FOUR.


AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 4 2010 12:59 AM EST

bumped it here... looks like your browser sucks as bad as your team...

Seriously... that's pretty big talk for a guy whose team gave up a 3-0 lead and had to depend on terrible calls to eek out an OT win.

j'bob February 4 2010 1:10 AM EST

See, when we handed the sharkies the worst loss they've had in years (7-2 for those who weren't aware) it was all... "oh we were sooo tired after such a long road trip"... but when the Hawks still win at the end of THEIR long road trip it's all... "oh the refs cheated us! booooo!"

The numbers don't lie. The Sharks are in first place, one of the best teams in hockey right now... and the Hawks know how to beat em. :D

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 4 2010 1:12 AM EST

assuming the Sharks forget they're playing hockey for the first ten minutes...
The rest of that game was a clear indication of who the better team was (right up until they made a stupid mistake in OT)...

j'bob February 4 2010 1:16 AM EST

lol, ok. I sure hope that the Sharks don't "FORGET" they're playing hockey if and when they make the playoffs.

Ya know, you would think a bunch of talented people who get paid to play a game wouldn't forget something as important as the fact that the game is ON! he he he

Or, maybe just check to see if your goalie is actually awake before the game starts.

don't try and bring Nabby into this...

folks who have a nameless troglodyte in net shouldn't talk

I noticed that after watching your guys' bet. I thought it was pretty goofy to put that in the avi after losing a fair bet.. you'd think that you wouldn't have to have stipulations on Avatars, tourney names, etc. for a bet to be lived up to tastefully.

TheHatchetman February 4 2010 4:35 AM EST

the trash-talking avatar and what's happening in this thread are all part of the game... Ain't you ever play sports kev?

TheHatchetman February 4 2010 4:36 AM EST

Matter of fact, I'd bet you 5 to one j'bob prefers it this way :P

kevlar February 4 2010 4:52 AM EST

hatch do you know even what I was talking about? They made a bet whoever lose a game would have to have the other say their team sux. Nov goes ahead and puts in his avatar and in tourney name that the opponent's team sux. Sorry, but a good sport would honor a bet and keep from 'exploiting' wherever possible... but a creature of habbit shall not be tamed :P JBob, I'll take a bet on the Pens anyday...and I won't do a run-around on a bet

AdminShade February 4 2010 5:29 AM EST

what's this thread about anyway? If you have a problem with novice's name or pic, just tell him or /ignore ?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 4 2010 5:55 AM EST

If j'bob wants to complain he knows where to find me... you however seem to have lost your way.

How about those Oilers?

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 4 2010 6:38 AM EST

I thought those Oilers changed their names to the Titans......traders <.< >.>

kevlar February 4 2010 1:38 PM EST

*facepalm* can't handle "trash talk" in a trash talking thread... *chuckles*

You guys made your bet public, so expect to hear opinions of others in the crowd?!

(Shade, I don't have a problem with the names, I luv hockey and I thought their bet was really cool and was fun to follow. I think naming the other venues after a loss on a bet that didn't have a 100 page contract attached to it is pretty cheese though. If I pulled that kind of hat-trickery around my friends, I would definitely hear about it! And it wouldn't be pop-corn and cotton candy conversation ;)

Crosby sucks... there I said it. I don't care if it's not true.

kevlar February 4 2010 1:59 PM EST

*grabs a pack of bologna and forms the number "87" out of meat on the rear windshield on Nov's car* (shark meat was too $$)

j'bob February 4 2010 7:10 PM EST

per cbs sports... just cause it made me giggle...
"Crosby tied Patrick Marleau of idle San Jose for the NHL goals lead with 37 by following up his game-altering performance during the Penguins' 2-1 shootout win Sunday against Detroit with an even better one"

j'bob February 4 2010 7:18 PM EST

So, I gotta say thanks to Kevlar for no other reason than in chiming in on this thread he showed that he's looking out for someone else and not himself. Two big thumbs up to Kev...

Having said that, at first I was a bit put off when I noticed nov's picture AND tourney character... my first thought was ... poor sport... but then I thought, but nov ISN'T a poor sport. I wouldn't bet my house on it, but I'd guess that way if I had to. The back and forth between him and I in chatmail has been nothing short of friendly and entertaining. PLUS after thinking about it for a minute, I realized that by having that AVI and tourney character, it shows that he MUST have lost a bet or something in order to have an AWESOME name like novice(HawksRule). So, it makes me happy.

And I feel bad for him. It's gotta be tough when a second place team IZ UP IN DA TANK MAKIN DEM LOOZE!
