Back in the day, Khabibulin was mentioned every other minute, not so much anymore, but when he was in his prime.

Jimbo

I still don't agree with the idea of Khabibulin getting slobbered like crazy.

He wasn't even in the top 5 of popular Phoenix athletes- I think he took a backseat to Randy Johnson, Jason Kidd, Jake Plummer, Tkachuk and Roenick.

Are you sure you're not confusing Khabibulin with Belfour, Cujo, or Byron Dafoe?

Now Jake "the snake" Plummer may be a worthy addition, but Kidd not to much slobber. RJ got the slobber, BUT brought it and is a HOF'er; even though he is still trying to work the media is off him. The NYC media during that experiment doesn't count for much. At least to me.

Just admit it Charper, you don't like NASCAR. :eek:

Jimbo

LOL, Oh; was I not clear?

MMMM, paid to drive left in a circle!?!?

Now the road tracks are intriguing.

Road racing is pathetic.
Any time teams hire a driver for one weekend so they can run a road race, theres something wrong with that.

While Jimbo and I disagree on what is considered good basketball (He likes the game played 'the right way' while I am sick and tired of boring Spurs/Pistons style basketball) and he and I don't see eye-to-eye on Detroit sports, one thing I do agree with him on:

NASCAR is BORING.

I would rather have season-tickets for the Pirates than be a NASCAR fan.

Who could get sick of Eddie the eagle? :) Cujo I never heard much about other then when he was in Detroit and mostly I heard (and agreed with) comments on how he was F'd over by the Wings.

Dafoe? Is that Willim's son? :)

No. Dafoe was a goalie for the Boston Bruins.
