  1. Ted McClelland

    I’ll sign up for Hockey Night.

  2. Mark Weiskircher

    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. 🙂

  3. Tony Prokes

    A Blues Jersey?!? 😡 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. :-*

  4. Mark Weiskircher

    Well Tony, if my status as a Blues fan causes me to lose, so be it. 😀 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. 😛

  5. Samuel Bassett

    Please add me to the Jan 9th game!

    Sam

  6. Aashirwad Viswanathan Anand

    I’d like to sign up for all open games.

  7. Peter Yeargin

    I’ll do Peter Lokken’s game and also be a standby for Daycare. 🙂

  8. Dan Burgess

    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!

  9. Mike Morrison

    I’ll sign up for the two games in February and stand by for the others.

  10. Samuel Bassett

    I need to withdraw from the game on Jan 9th.

    That said, I’ll add another standby for the 22nd.

  11. Samuel Bassett

    Please add me to the Feb 26th game.

  12. Mike Morrison

    Afraid I’ll have to cancel on Feb. 12 game.

  13. Peter Yeargin

    Jim, you can add me in for hockey night at Dan’s place if you still need someone.

  14. Aashirwad Viswanathan Anand

    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.

  15. Matt Sundstrom

    Put me as 1st alternate for Peter’s game.

  16. Aashirwad Viswanathan Anand

    I’d like to withdraw from the Feb 26th game as I will be attending a recruiting event.
