  1. Just awesome. Who'd have thought playing 94 would bring about such an incredible life experience!
  2. I always thought that home & away advantages just affected the "flow" of the game? There are times when your guys will mess up passes, be out of position or periods in the game when one team just totally dominates. There are those times where you can just sense a goal coming. Am I wrong on that or is it that those times in games are determined by the factors you're talking about?
  3. Thanks Raph, I really wanted to go to Vegas, especially with it being one of the closed places for me to get to..............but life just got in the way. I am hoping that next year will calm down & that i'll have more time to get into playing once again & be present in the community. Hopefully the next King of 94 I will be able to make it!!!
  4. Are there any plans to involve a retro game shop or anything in selling at King of 94 in Vegas?
  5. The best hotel prices in my experience are usually the week of the date you're looking for, when they are just trying to fill their remaining rooms. The "cheap room" websites are often very useful a few days before the date.
  6. Its already for all of you! I'm currently converting all these prices into pesos :-/ I have a couple of clinics in the US this year which will pay well so look like I know what theyre getting spent on! lol
  7. Exactly. I'm there! Can I now book flights with 100% confidence?!
  8. Hey people! Hope everyone is well, & that hopefully there are still lots of guys around from the last time I played a couple of years ago. The announcement of the Vegas tournament in September has motivated me to open up the 94 web page again. As soon as all the details are confirmed I will definitely be heading out there. As you all know I will be no threat to the title challengers, but it will be great to be part of the experience & celebrate this wonderful game from my youth. As Vegas is a short & relatively inexpensive flight from Mexico City i'm not going to let the opportunity pass by again! Life is pretty manic, which was why I stopped playing anyway, but I guess i'm going to have to try to dig out the gamepad & at least put some practice in :-) Eagerly awaiting more news!

  10. lol I may also be aroun. Wooohoo! This computer is on a wireless connection at the top of the house so will need a test run to see if its good enough for online play cos I aint buying however many metres of cable it would need to reach here! lol
  11. Haha. Great to see this thread has got running again. Big hi to everyone
  12. Sorry guys. I actually got on last night to start playing only to hear about this. No problem. I have so much going on right now as fortunately my professional life is really starting to take off & I have all sorts of projects in the pipeline. Just crazy & occupying all my time. GL to Kgman. I will try to be on as much as possible during Thursday, Friday & the weekend to get Blitz games in, & I will let Raph know if I have enough time free to play classic B. Sorry again
  13. Nice! Let us know when the hotel is confirmed! Negotiations with the GF seem to be going well & there's possibly a bonus coming at work so % of actually being there is gradually rising lol
  14. So the 94 tourney in Toronto, as part of the documentary is confirmed for September 12th. Is it going to be a one day tournament? I'm looking at flights & they're less than $600 US which is excellent IMO, but with the weak peso it hits nearly $9000 MX. Certainly doable but gotta look at hotels too so an idea of how many nights i'm looking at will help. Thanks
  15. Just to update, i've been dead busy since I got back, catching up on work stuff, working from home. I will try to get some exhibs in tomorrow but if not don't worry. Once i'm back into the routine with everything up to date i'll be good to go again
  16. I have now returned from my trip to Europe & am fighting the jetlag. I will be looking to play some exhibs this weekend as I am so out of practice. Next week i'll look to get going with my games. The same counts for Blitz. While I was away I neither had the time, nor acceptable hotel internet so I will have to hammer the games out from now. Thanks guys. Nice write up AJ
  17. Did u also change Carpenter's number at NYR?
  18. Have just seen that Owen Nolan & Bob Carpenter both have number 11 on NYR line. Sorry for not spotting that earlier (Nolan was a late trade) Would like Carpenter changed to number 10, which was his number for an all-star game apparently. Thanks
  19. Yeah I gotta go to England to renew my passport then off to Spain to hook up with the teams from the club I work for then we head to Portugal for a big youth tournament..........tough life
  20. I go away to Europe with work this weekend until April 7th. Wont be available to get my season started until after that
  21. I guess i'd regret not taking JR................I mean Chicago. Not a fan but what the hell. Sic up
  22. As long as i'm honoured with a state welcome I won't worry about which flag is flying
  23. Flights cheaper on aeromexico than air canada. Same price to go to ottawa etc. Working on convincing the GF lol

Edited above too, but here are my lines after the Hokkee trade: NEW YORK RANGERS 1st Line: LW - Shanahan C - Ciccarelli RW - Nolan RD - Feathrston LD - Richardson #2 (Dino takes #22) G - Joseph Xtra Attacker - Kovalenko 2nd Line: LW - Nolan C - Nolan RW - Carpenter RD - Butcher LD - Butcher G - Joseph Xtra Attacker - Kovalenko Checking line: LW - Carpenter C - Millen RW - Kovalenko RD - Quintal LD - Quintal G - Joseph * Names repeated to ensure specific players come in in case of injuries/penalties
