Abstinence Is The Only Cure

We've endured losing streaks before.  Usually in February, like this one.  Only those were different because our midget commissioner hadn't ordered a five-month snow day.

This one is horribler, a word I rarely use but it's a real word because I checked.  It's horribler because if there's one thing we learned from The Natural, it's that losing is a disease as contagious as syphilis.  I don't want to catch sypilis and I've taken certain steps over the course of my life to ensure I haven't.  But if losing is contagious like that disease does that mean only the players themselves will catch it or the fans too?  I do not want syphilis. 

Please win. I'm allergic to penicillin and I really dislike Nashville.

It's a Live Blog bitches.  We're all in serious trouble.

Aloha, Master Chief.  Raising a J-Gold to you and your crew a safe fishing trip.

Usually, I try not to panic because in a full season, these would be the doldrums of the hockey season.

There’s a second time for everything.

Evening Master Chief,

Your analysis of the situation is right on…and yet, you are able to put some humor into it. You have to, because I already stop “laughing” 2 games ago…I am also allergic to PNC….but a few more games like that, I will seriously consider injecting myself with it LOL


GO RED WINGS. Don’t care how you do it tonight, just GET IT DONE!!!!! smile

Oh Good, don’t need to freeze frame and sync the audio, unless it would be best in order to break the losing streak we’re on.
