BTW, who are you rooting for in the finals for Lord Stanley's Cup? You are sort of in a unique position.

To the first part: good plan. Just choosing which one to watch first seemed like something I'd have to agonize over for a while. shog[1].gif
bigass Stanley Cup schpiel, because why not (Click to show)
As for hockey, I'm definitely rooting for the Blackhawks. I was born in Boston and my family all originates from the Boston-area (dad is from Coolidge Corner, mom is from Newton), but I really grew up in the Chicago-area. We moved out to the midwest when I was about a year old. My dad raised my brother as an extremely loyal Boston fan (to this day I refuse to watch a Patriots game with my brother because you'd think either the world is about to end or that he just won the lottery), whereas I never really soaked up the sports-love (I spent more time reading and playing video games).

My dad took me to a few Hawks games throughout the 90s and the early part of this decade. Despite the fact that the Hawks just plain sucked and you couldn't watch a home game on local television because of the owners (I still can't get over how fucking nuts that is—especially in a sports-city like Chicago), going to those games actually sparked my love for the sport. Soon after, I started playing. We eventually started going to Hawks games regularly around 2006 or 2007, just before Toews and Kane were drafted (and eventually placed on the Chicago roster). By then I was really into hockey—playing all the time in high school, stoking a growing enthusiasm for the NHL as Crosby and Ovechkin started tearing up the league, and just playing lots of the original NHL Hitz—so watching the team start to hint at how great they'd eventually be pretty much sealed it for me.

The'08-'09 playoffs were a ton of fun to watch: despite getting their asses kicked handily by Detroit, they played two extremely exciting series against Calgary and Vancouver (the latter of which I now have a seething sports-hatred for). And then of course there was a huge roster turnover with Havlat going out one door and Hossa walking in the other. Ever since then I've loved watching this team play.

Right now the dynamic is a bit awkward: my brother is a sports-junkie in a way that I never could be, and he fervently loves Boston sports teams. Even though my dad has grown to love the Hawks, he and my brother are both rooting for Boston. That said, my mom and I are both solid Chicago fans, so I'm not totally alone. I'll probably be in the city for both game 5 and 6 to go watch the game at some bars with my brother, so that in and of itself ought to be enough Stanley Cup stimulation for my ever-weakening heart.

For some reason I really enjoyed reading this post. I don't really care for hockey, no pro team where I grew up, but from what little I know hockey seems to have the most appreciable cultures.

has anyone seen these rick boots in person? i mean specifically the white version. i checked out the black ones, but it's really the white version I'm interested in. unfortunately no place in NYC seems to have the white ones. guess i'm just wondering general thoughts on the leather and how it looked in real life.



i tried on these dries pants the other day. they were cool, but i think it would help if i were at least 6 ft. i had to cuff them a bunch and it changed the proportions a lot.

Thursday, 10am — I see my Mr.Porter package has crossed the border, so I call DHL and ask whether delivery is expected the same day, in order to be home for the first attempt. The lady tells me it will be delivered the same day, but I should call back in an hour with my buzzer number so the delivery doesn't fail (???).

Thursday, 11am — I call DHL with my buzzer number. I am told my package is "damaged." No further information is available. The person sounds illiterate, so I decide to try back soon.

Thursday, 11:15am — I call back and reach someone who sounds like a possible high school graduate, mercy of mercies. I am told my package is "damaged." No further information is available, but I will be called back by the end of the day by someone from the warehouse who can discuss the condition of the package with me (it does not appear to matter that I don't want to discuss anything, I just want the package delivered).

Thursday, 2:00pm — I call back to make sure someone is going to call me by the end of the day. I am assured "Soyab" will call me by 3pm. He is a "tracing agent."

Soyab never calls.

Thursday, 3:00pm — I call back. Where's Soyab? I am given his direct number. I call Soyab directly: straight to an answering machine whose message consists of a voice mumbling "Soyab" (it does not seem like a professional number, so I do not leave a message).

Thursday, 4:00pm — I call the main line again to tell them Soyab never called me back. Oh, actually he will get back to me by some time tomorrow (Friday). Will it help if I take the initiative to call back Friday morning? Maybe.

Thursday, 8:00pm — I call back just so there's an extra note in my file and they know I'm serious about my damn package.

Friday, 8:00am — I call DHL to say the hell with Soyab, I want my package delivered today, not a phone call. The woman says okay (this was never presented as a choice before -- they just instructed me to wait for a phone call). She says the delivery trucks load by 10:45am.

Friday, 9:00am — I call again to reconfirm my wishes because I no longer trust these people not to screw up simple instructions. I want the package today. The guy accepts this and says there is still no further information from the warehouse regarding the damage. Soyab will call me by 3pm, he assures me. That's too late for the delivery trucks.

Friday, 10:15am — Having waited as close to delivery departure as I dare, I call back again. By some miracle, I reach a woman who says she works near Soyab. She goes and stands at his desk (not at my request) until he is done a phone call, then tells him I am on the line and transfers me through. Soyab repeats there is "damage" to my package, does not tell me any more about it, and confirms the receipt of my instructions that I wanted delivery today, but tells me he "can't tell whether a damage report has been submitted" in the electronic system, so he "doesn't know" whether the item is out for delivery today or not. He says he will call back by 3pm today to let me know ..... something or other ...... and I may get the item today, or I may get it Monday.

What is unsaid in all of this is that if the bloody item was destroyed beyond repair, I obviously don't want it at all any more and somebody should have made clear at the very beginning that is what had happened so I could forget about it altogether. On the other hand, if the item is fine, then I am in no way helped by a phone call from some warehouse neanderthal, and all they are accomplishing by delaying delivery is wasting my time.

So 24 hours after I should have received my Neil Barrett, I don't have it, I don't know when I might receive it, and I don't know whether it is intact or in shreds.
What the fuck is wrong with DHL?

I've recently got the itch to get a pair of Rick Owens drop crotch sweats, but I can't find them anywhere. Can anyone help? I'd try to find them in anything from a 48-50. Many e-points to anyone that can help!
