# Ted McClelland 2010-12-13 11:58
I'll sign up for Hockey Night.
# Mark Weiskircher 2010-12-13 14:58
Downers Grove is nice and close to me (compared to the others anyway :P ) and I told Dan I would wear my Blues jersey to his game night. So, sign me up for the Hockey Night game on 12 Feb. :-)
# Tony Prokes 2010-12-14 17:06
A Blues Jersey?!? :-x So much for any chance of an alliance Mark. Wearing my Blackhawks jersey there is no way I could ally with either a Blues or Redwings jersey wearing dip player.

Hey Dan, maybe jersey are not a good idea. :-*
# Mark Weiskircher 2010-12-14 18:57
Well Tony, if my status as a Blues fan causes me to lose, so be it. :D There are other games this season!

Funny thing is that the last two games I have played, I actually steered away from sports related t-shirts and sweatshirts for just that reason. LOL. Keep it neutral.

Plus, not being a native, I don't have much Chicago sports apparel. :P
# Samuel Bassett 2010-12-18 13:59
Please add me to the Jan 9th game!

Sam
# John G 2010-12-18 22:43
Put me up for Feb 26 and Jan 9.
# Aashirwad Viswanathan Anand 2010-12-19 02:59
I'd like to sign up for all open games.
# Peter Yeargin 2010-12-20 12:41
I'll do Peter Lokken's game and also be a standby for Daycare. :)
# Dan Burgess 2010-12-31 14:49
Just put myself as a standby for February 12. As usual, I prefer to host and let you guys duke it out. So anyone who wants in on the hockey fun, sign up to join us!
# Mike Morrison 2011-01-01 15:09
I'll sign up for the two games in February and stand by for the others.
# Samuel Bassett 2011-01-02 11:23
I need to withdraw from the game on Jan 9th.

That said, I'll add another standby for the 22nd.
# Samuel Bassett 2011-01-09 14:56
Please add me to the Feb 26th game.
# Mike Morrison 2011-01-20 12:54
Afraid I'll have to cancel on Feb. 12 game.
# Peter Yeargin 2011-01-21 15:11
Jim, you can add me in for hockey night at Dan's place if you still need someone.
# Aashirwad Viswanathan Anand 2011-01-25 03:18
Man there is some intense diplomacy waiting to happen on Hockey Night. Nate and Peter Y are locked in the fight for first, Tony Prokes and Peter L are pretty close up there. Ted and I are close in terms of points and Mark Weiskircher's score will rise this game so long as he finishes with centers.
# Matt Sundstrom 2011-01-26 17:42
Put me as 1st alternate for Peter's game.
# Aashirwad Viswanathan Anand 2011-02-23 19:51
I'd like to withdraw from the Feb 26th game as I will be attending a recruiting event.
