With all the GREAT news this off-season it might be easy for a Stars fan to get caught up in the new, and potentially forget the old — but how could we forget about the greatest line-mates in all of hockey? Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin are two of our young leaders on this awesome team and last year they showed just how awesome they can be! So, show your love and your Benneguin’s pride!

In March of 2014 we faithful saw Modano’s number hung in the rafter during a tear-filled retirement ceremony – not a dry eye in the house! There are those of us, though who believe it was only the start to what this organization owes to it’s history. On the heels of hearing Bob Sturm talking about Zubov deserving the rafters and ESPN talking about him deserving the Hall of Fame, we want you to have a way to show your support and ask the organization to make it right – let’s get Zubov and Lehtinen up in the rafters, LEHTS #MAKEITRIGHT!
Asked and Answered. Thanks Erik!
And thanks to everyone who donated and helped make this an extra-special rendition of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. We appreciate the opportunity to join in the fun and now pass the challenge on:
- D’Ann Faught – our favorite Dallas Stars ticket rep who helps us organize to get AMAZING deals at the arena.
- May Day – the masked crusader, soon to immortalized in comic book form.
- Speedbump Joey – Stars Asylum Inmate and co-founder of Lone Star Legion, the FC Dallas supporters group.
In case you’ve been sitting under a rock somewhere the Ice Bucket Challenge went viral the past few weeks and brings awareness to Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”. Between July 29 and August 12 the ALS Association raised $4 million in donations, compared to $1.12 million in the same period last year.
Well, we’re very happy to be part of the craze! Saturday we got challenged by Erik Morton of Stars Insider. After a quick conference of the Wardens we’ve decided to have a little fun with it. We’re going to extend the 24 hours a little bit in the interest of getting a few extra dollars to the ALSA.
Here’s where you come in: Donate $10 to the ALSA via their website at http://www.alsa.org/ and we will add a gallon of ice water to the challenge. Simply email email@example.com a copy of the receipt and we’ll add it to the tally! Easy as that – want to see Warden Andy swimming in a pool of ice water … well … get donating and don’t forget to send Warden Jay the receipt. And to add a little to the fun, the highest donation will be SAFE from being challenged by Warden Andy.
There it is. Now, head over to the ALSA website and donate today – the ice bucket drops on Monday at 1pm central – you don’t want to miss getting in on this!
It’s Duck Hunting season and this is a SERIES now! Starting tonight it’s best-of-three, a task that doesn’t seem so insurmountable after our two-game homestand. What do you think?
In honor of the best-of-three series what are your favorite Duck Hunting stories? The Finish Flash? The Niedermayer Brothers (Brothers Forever, AMIRITE)? JSG? Nintendo’s Duck Hunt? (I’m a fan of my wife’s duck-noose, personally)
So – what’s your story? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your story or if you already have an account on the site post it! We’ll be publishing Duck Hunting stories for the next week.
