All Routes To Mankato Are Closed: There’s A Killer On The Road

"Little House" never scared me. Sure, when Mary went blind and that little skank Nellie started tricking on her 16th birthday? Disturbing.  But never scared, really.  It wasn't a scary show. It was family. It was Pa battling a few broken ribs to protect the clan from savage rats. It was Mr. Angel, wasted on corn whiskey but lovable. It was Albert with the lisp stoned to the bejesus belt on morphine up in the hay loft.

The Ingalls sisters stayed grounded.  And we loved them for it.  But they never had to deal with the likes of a really bad man. 

Well, tonite they do. Tonite, Little House is back in a stirring return on FS-Detroit, brought to you by the Bernstein Law Firm and that idiotic sports store who claims "the strike is over."  And don't you think for a second it's going to be all giggles and light. No.

The Ingalls sisters leave the innocence of Walnut Grove and travel east to the mean streets of Detroit. It's there that Mary and Laura, together again because they each have agents now, find out that the world can be much more cruel and sinister than just the leering gaze of Nels Olsen at the tail end of a barn dance.  Tonite, it's the Ingalls sisters battling a serial killer, a sociopath, a wacked out toothless bearded bastard who wreaked havoc in the Rockies ten years ago and hasn't stopped killing since.

Little Half Pint and her blind dimwitted sister Mary take to the ice in Detroit tonite, a place they could have called home had they not elected to live together in harmony and song for the rest of their Cup-less lives.

Bring it ladies.  Our Serial Killer awaits and his brain is squirming like a frigging toad.  It's a live blog, bitches.

Dude commits a penalty and runs his own goalie.  Good work there.

Maybe, just maybe, the Wings are discovering they are no longer a finesse team but rather a team that has to work hard to achieve results.

holy crap, can the wings play organ-I-zed defense in the third period and control the game and pace, and not commit penalties?  you know, like the good old days way back in 2012.

I wound up with a nice 8 point buck and 4 does and the boy got his first deer in the youth season and it was nice enough for a shoulder mount.
Great year…thanks for asking. How’s life been and how’s Pat?

There is still the third period to go. Plenty of time for the first period Wings to reappear.

Congrats to the boy.  The past year is best forgotten and Patrick still lives by a code: “If you’re going to have one you may as well drink a dozen”.

Jimmah didn’t allow a goal. The first period Wings couldn’t score on 1:30 of 5 on 3.
