Old Chinese people fashion

Generally, old Chinese people will just wear anything that's given to them. Or buy stuff if it's cheap. I've seen them in stuff like leopardskin pants/shirts, purple velvet trenchcoats, etc, and uhh, it's pretty clear from their accessories/shoes/etc that they weren't trying to be cool.

Another common thing is to wear caps of whatever local sports teams there are, without necessarily knowing what team it is, or what sport... but today, I had to do a double take--an old Chinese man was wearing a cap with the confederate flag on it! :P

Peeeeeeeeeetr hasn't signed yet. It sounds like he'll be going to Edmonton, where he'll have a tearful reunion with Ales, and eat at the best Czech restaurant in North America. Or he could go play in Magnitogorsk again. I dunno. If they offered him enough money, of course he'd do it, but I don't know that they would/can. Maybe his agent made up the whole thing.

It's kinda sad that a guy like Petr isn't creating more interest.

He's had 6-7 offers, so there's interest. He's just being fussy/greedy. :)

Yeah. And he's been whining about how tough the Western Conference travel schedule is, but most of the offers he's getting have been from the west. Then he whined about how he wasn't getting a lot of minutes in New York, and how he wants to be on the point on the PP (even though I think he's actually more effective down low).

Whine, whine, whine.


We're all friggin' bored over here, so just sign!

Well, he has that big, hard, shot that will go on net. And he does things like hop to keep the puck in, and can do pretty good as defenseman should a 2-on-1 short-handed chance develop against him.

But I just don't remember many PPGs being scored when he was in that position for Anaheim this past season. In 02-03 he scored 34 goals, a lot of which were PPGs, and he was down low, rather than on the point.

Maybe he wants to upgrade his mountain farm or something.

Yeah, but Anaheim didn't have Ryan Smyth. Smytty needs someone's point shots to tip now that that asshole whatshisname is gone. Get it within two feet of the net and we're laughing, since that's more than Staios can do.

Yeah, I tended to blame the Ducks down low for not getting rebounds and stuff, but... of course I would. :P

I think his wife is probably taking up all his attention right now. :P

haha he can only focus on so much at a time, poor lamb

ahh yes, I have a whole post dedicated to why old Koreans shouldn't wear green check clothes made of flannel on the bottom and purple check clothes made of satin on the top.

petr sign already! you are causing my f-list angst and sucking into their writing time.

I need your mailing address. :D

Oh yeah, there's some pretty spectacular clashing going on in Chinatown every day...

But the exception is really rich old Chinese people. The men will wear the same suit day in and day out, while the women will always reflect understated wealth.

Ahh yes, the tai tais. *grin*
