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.

Pavel and I would take Franzen or Bertuzzi in place of Cleary in a heartbeat.

The way Cleary has been playing I would take Jan Mursak in his place.

I remember when the Wings signed Cola, the buzz on him was that he was injury prone…

I would really like to see everyone healthy to gauge just how good or bad this team is.

His first injury came in an interview prior to the first game.

Bert is what - 37, 38? - with a bad back.  I don’t think he’s ever really be “back.”

I was hoping we would get more than one game out of him though.

I haven’t seen a team score on itself after pulling its goalie on a delayed call since the 90’s, and I think the Wings benefited twice that decade like that.

They must have been ESPN games.

Yet so many will tell you climate change is a myth.  I remember those winters too.  Snowmen would survive well into April.

Nashville doesn’t have a point this year when trailing after the first period.

The Wings are record breakers this year, however.

I used to work at a State Motor Pool on Woodward and one of the “girls” wanted to use the restroom.  She offered to pay me and took out a wad of twentys that would choke a horse.
