This is post 1000 for me so, to celebrate, here are a few 1000 related links:







I am sure that there are about a thousand of these but I will stop here.

P.S. I hope the site admin starts giving me some popcans or mario faces or something above my avatar. Hockey pucks would be cool!

I just noticed your 999, and was waiting to congratulate you as soon as you posted.

Congrats Bigthumb!


How many posts do I have?

Edit: 3807!

Since I edited, rather than post a new message, I figured I’d better post another one regarding my posts:

The Double-Post Pimp

yea i wish i had more posts takes forever :frowning:

Well there’s only so many times you can talk about ass or cheetos.

there must be something to talk about rather than how many times we post… eyee eyee eyeeee
I normally don’t even open forwards unless I know they are going to be funny. But although I don’t have much use for the NHL, this was amusing:

Since September 11, 2001, 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 very own nation are going
to be locked out, living 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 annual 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 a 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.


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.


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 unforeseen expenses.


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
(Executive Director of the NHLPA player’s Union) pin to wear proudly on my
hat (include $80 for hat).
