Abel to Yzerman

A Much Needed Break

It's nice to be back after a much needed break from all the negativity that has surrounded the Wings since the big decline. A chance to refocus, and, see how it goes between now and the All Star break. Of course, there is more controversy in the news regarding the former coach, but, we don't care about that on a game night. We're here to enjoy whatever happens on the ice. Good or bad.

Tonight is Grateful Dead night at the Pizzarena, so with that in mind, a Dead lyric.....

"Lately, it occurs to me
 What a long, strange trip it's been."

 It's a Live Blog!

So the Badgers scored on the first possession of the game?  I was going to check if the Buckeyes had already put the game away.

It would make it tolerable to hear it in that format. I was just listening to vintage JJ and the Morning Crew’s version of the Christmas Miracle.

more reception issues…..do they have 5 yet?

This reception is like the olde days when the Chief was not yet a Master and the pirate feed from Europe was the only broadcast.

Not sure if we were rebuilding then.
