Abel to Yzerman

12 hours out of Mackinaw City I stopped to have a brew, or two, or hell…just open it up Voox

5 games left and every one of them is a death sentence waiting to happen. Boston's in St. Louis tonight, so yeah...we're pulling for the Blues.

But most importantly, we're pulling for the Wings.

Against a team I personally despise.

As much as I hate the Blues or the Dive or Ohio State or Bud Light? No. 

And, come to think of it, I really don't hate the team I just have no respect for the Ingalls sisters or that trashcan Pinky with his stupid hat and elitist craft beer. Remember him? 

I just read that. And now I'm sad. 7 years ago, or so. Man, that was some venom wasn't it? Vigor. If any of you wonder why the blogging stopped (pretty much), it's because I just couldn't muster stuff like that anymore.

But, it's coming back. I have a feeling. 

On to tonight.  Mantha playing with AA. Cousin Jeffy says it'll work because it worked "for him" down in GR against teams like the Marlies. 

Sounds good, right?

Win tonight. Keep winning. All five. Just get in, men. Just. Get. In.

It's a Live Blog bitches. We're posting it early and recommending you bend the elbow as soon as domestically possible. This is no time for sober thought, sober reflection, sober analysis or sober anything, really.

LGRW.

I have it on good authority that Detroit will make the playoffs and the stress train motors on.

Words to live by Master Chief.  What I want more than anything else is for the team to show us they really, really do want to win and extend the season.  That is something that has been sorely lacking for a while now.  L.G.R.W.

Well it’s April the Master Chief is here and we have Bob Segar in the bullpen.
Just win and in. One at a time as Stoney says. Looks like Pinky’s team mailed it in last night and hopefully they do it again tonite. LGRW

Dude at the bar here in Palm Beach wearing the Bruins hat says the Wings are toast.  So I “spilled” my beer on him.  Hell of a sacrifice because I’d never had 312 Goose beer before and it was pretty good.

Thanks Master Chief - Well said and it sure feels good having Bob back in the bullpen with the 19.

Now lets all focus on getting 2 points outta this game because tonight we’re gonna get it right!

Afternoon all. Mo I caught up on the last LB and wanted to say I’m sorry to hear about your mother. It sucks. My mother no longer recognizes me, one of my sisters or any of her grand children. Not Alzheimer’s, just severe age related dementia. She knows she has a son, she but hasn’t recognized me as that person in a couple of years. Her personality has changed too (she’s nicer). It’s like the person I knew is already gone.

Thanks Chief. As soon as you said this is a team you despise, I thought of Pinky.  Hard to believe that was pushing 7 years ago.

Well, we’re about 5 minutes in and they look lifeless, there’s already been a horrid turnover by Errorson, and I’ve yet to see AA or Mantha.

Just following the LB. I dumped flash from my system so no NHL live and it’s blacked out on my phone because NHL Network. I set it to record, but you said they’re showing an alumni game. Time to leave work and catch the 2nd and 3rd at home.
