    Yeah, again, it's why it's a pet peeve for me. I read the terms literally, so when I see "we," the first thought in my head is "really? Because you're on the team?"

    I get what you're saying.

    It's always funny with those who say "we" when its something positive and "they" when something negative. "Hell Yeah, we won 5-0" then the next game "Fuck this team, they suck".

Only a domimo, like protesters hoping to exact change by booing or not buying tickets, etc.

    Again, I understand why fans say it. I just don't agree they should. Or should I say we?

    I wouldn't say that the crowd doesn't affect what happens on the ice. Thats why there is home field/ice advantage in sports. Fans can pump up a team and can give them confidence or crucify them.

    Pet Peeves

    Fans that can’t spell players names correctly.

    ie: Staal/Stall, Lundqvist/Lundquist

    For some reason I atcually thought G was named Giradi, not Girardi, for a long time. Don't know how I never saw or heard that it was wrong lol.

    Spelling is what people who don't know how to do math use to make themselves feel smart

    Can’t always blame the person on spelling. Autocorrect changes Staal a lot to Stall. I hate autocorrect sometimes because you can fix it to how you wantand it will change it each time you try to fix it.

    You can just adjust your autocorrect by adding in frequently used words in your Text Replacement (iPhone).

    I never knew that. I fight with the autocorrect on my iPhone all the time because it wants to change things all the time. If I text my wife about my son, his name is Luke, it always changes his name to Like. Is this on all iPhones?

    They didn’t allow this previously... or 6 years ago when I tried. Nice.
