This is a question Family Feuds

Pooster tells us that a relative was once sent to the shops to buy an onion, while the rest of the family went on a daytrip while he was gone. Meanwhile, whole sections of our extended kin still haven't got over a wedding brawl fifteen years ago – tell us about families at war.

Oh No! Orinoco!
I’d been having a running feud with my twin brother for as long as I can remember, it started at primary school when I accidentally threw his stupid chipmunk teddy on the school roof to which he retaliated by butchering my awesome womble with a carving knife when we got home.

Things carried on tit for tat for years after that.

He bloodied my nose with a control pad after I’d beaten him again at NHL 93 on the MegaDrive so I waited till he did his normal thing of jumping off the garage roof to impress his mates and then strung the washing line across the garden, as he climbed up round the back, so that he tripped over it in mid-air, did a 180 degrees pirouette by his ankle on the line and face planted in the big pot of alpine trees.

Fights broke out on a semi-regular basis. Even though I’m a fair bit smaller (the Danny DeVito Twin if you will) I’d normally win as he’d always had a really weak spot on his stomach. One well aimed punch and it was another victory for me.
Years later it turned out he’d got a cyst the size of a rugby ball there which they had to chop out.

Seeing him after the operation in hospital, instead of feeling guilty about this, I mocked him for his surgical stockings and laughed when he’d pass out mid-sentence when the next lot of morphine was administered.

Shortly after he got released from hospital I had the humility and good graces to bestow the olive branch and end the feud.

And not because he was now without his Achilles Heel and still a whole lot bigger than me you understand.

A fine choice of console game
Each NHL version had it's own subtle nuances, and all were equally enjoyable. My team were Montreal you know.

Shame it never really converted to the 3d generation.

It was my favourite version, had 94 and 95 as well. Still play it on my GP2X.

I was always Vancouver. Still am on the PS3.

There was a version on the N64 that was great.

I remember basically scoring a header
When a chipshot was turned into the net (knocking the guy over), accidentally of course by one of my team-mates. Much hilarity!

Oh and nothing better than building up a right head of momentum with the charge and then slamming some motherfucker to the ice, especially if you injured them! Haha good times, me and my brother had an epic NHL feud.

I only had the first one.
Titled EA hockey on the megadrive.

It also had john madden on the cartridge, but that was shit.
