The Darkest Day in MHH History

There came a day, unlike any other day when all the collective awesome of the MHH community could not turn back the tide of despair caused by the most unthinkable of all thoughts: The Well-thought-of Colorado Avalanche traded the Much Beloved Baron of Von Wolski.  (Whew.  I barely got that out without shedding an unmanly tear...) Now, many of you have no doubt just recently completed the state mandated grief counseling required to deal with that tragically historic Wednesday of Wolski, but we still need to deal with as a community.  So I thought I'd let some of the newer members help us ALL heal a little today.  And I thought the best way to do that would be to recap some of horrific things that happened on that day.

  • gl avfan went missing for three months.
  • avschifan changed his login to chiavsfan.
  • Jibbles correctly replied to all comments. Hopfenkopf did not reply at all.
  • hockeymom and sandiegee refused to talk about sex for 86 minutes as a tribute to The Baron's new number in Phoenix.
  • Canary didn't post a single Arnason pic for, like, three days! He did however stare at this photo for hours.
  • SeeSixWhores only felt like looking at two whores all day.
  • Mike began punching JR roast beef sandwiches.

What other tales of woe do you need to get off of your chest regarding that bleakest of days?  For it truly was
