Would you rather date a really cute guy who has a tree for body....or date a tree with a man-body?
Don't answer that. It's rhetorical. Or nonsensical. Or something. I just think "Would you rather" questions are funny. But I don't like when they're depressing, like "Would you rather have no eyes or no feet?" I've heard some pretty gnarly ones that make me wince as they're being listed off. I prefer exciting "Would you rather" questions like "Would you rather have a magical elf who grants you three wishes or be given a $5,000 gift card to Outback Steakhouse?" See how much more fun that is? And then follow-up response questions add to the excitement - Is it a boy elf or girl elf? Does the gift card have an expiration date? Will I have to feed and clothe the elf? Could I just wish-ask the elf for an Outback gift card? (Duh.) Aaaaaaanyway, since it seems as though this whole post was sort of one big tangent - I'm gonna' sign off. Hope you enjoyed the tree-dude.

Johan Franzen missed 28. Jonas Gustavsson missed 22. Danny DeKeyser missed 17. Daniel Alfredsson missed 14. Jimmy Howard missed 13. Justin Abdelkader missed 12. The list goes on.Only 27 times did the Wings have both Datsyuk and Zetterberg in the lineup. In the second half of the season, the Wings played largely without two of the best two-way players in new nike nfl jerseys hockey. Datsyuk played 10 games after Jan. 1. Zetterberg played zero games after Feb. 8.At the general managers meeting last month, Columbus Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen tried to put his own injury epidemic in perspective in terms of man-games lost. “One of my colleagues upstairs told me that if you have 400 or 300-and-something, you cheap sale jerseys have no chance of making the playoffs,” he said.Yet wholesale jerseys shop the NFL Jerseys Store Wings made it last season, anyway. The real surprise was that team, not this one. The Wings relied on kids and NFL Jerseys call-ups, particularly Gustav Nyquist, who started the season in the minors because of a logjam and ended up leading the team jerseys store in goals with 28. He scored 23 in 28 games from Jan. 20 to April 2. The Wings also spackled a hole by trading for veteran center David Legwand at the deadline because they didn’t have enough healthy bodies down the middle.
