Well…It Was A Nice Thought

I wish I’d found this for you guys yesterday.  It’s some quality venom from the boys at Fear The Fin.

The Detroit Red Wings. Ponder that name for a minute. Let it marinate in your mouth. Let that red and white seep into your pores, let it consume your soul. Allow visions of Tomas Holmstrom and Chris Osgood to run wild in your mind; lifting Lord Stanley for all the world to see, drinking it’s sweet nectar. Feel the Dark Side coarse through your veins. Accept it as a part of you, permit it entrance to the back of your throat till it becomes almost too much to bear.

Then spit that vile creature out.

McCollum’s Sights Set on Hockeytown

Check this out. Chris Pope, assistant editor for The Good Point, sent a link to a recent interview he did with Wing goalie prospect Thomas McCollum.  The kid’s been watching what’s been going on in Detroit this season, and in Grand Rapids.

With Chris Osgood showing his age even more as every game passes and prospect Jimmy Howard not blossoming into the stud the Wings expected, all eyes turn to the small town kid.

“I have thought about it a bit,” said McCollum. “It’s extremely encouraging to know that there is some depth there but it’s not a ton. It definitely shows me that there is a spot [in Detroit] if I work hard enough.”

The Plight Of The Fan Blogger

It had been too long.  Something like two years.  I wasn’t prepared for it and I’ll admit to you now that I haven’t handled it well.

Losing to Denver was so unexpected, so…startlingly revolting, that I’d pushed the memories of the last time too far away. 

I should have kept them handy.

Sound of Thunder Wake You Up?  Nope, Just a Live Blog

Oh, I know.  “Night Moves” is a cliche tune and we’ve used it so much.  But…well, it’s my favorite Seger song and it’s my birthday.  So eat it.

Your Choice…Flippin’ Out With Great Danes Or A Live Blog

Deep in the hearta and we’re going with ZZ Top for tonite’s featured artist.

Here’s the deal.  I’m “going out to dinner.”  I have a feeling this is some kind of wack-job 40th birthday surprise party, 3 days before the actual event.  If it is? I won’t be back for the Live Blog.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
