And Then There Was One…Live Blog Our Last Best Chance For A Title

Looking back to October we had two teams with legitimate title hopes (the Wings, of course, and the Tigers), another giving us plenty of reason to be optimistic and one more that I was actually hoping would stay locked out forever.

Down went the Tigers.  Drew Brees and a Detroit secondary with the hands of William Tell finished off the Lions today.  The Pistons are back and none of you care, which makes you good Americans. 

So, as it should be, that leaves the Wings.

And tonite’s matchup is relevant because one way or another it’s gonna happen again in May.  Before the midget shrew hands over the Twelfth at the Joe in front of 20K plus 19 and the sad Pens, the manger baby’s Wings will have to get by baby brother. And that’s gonna be some series, sister. 

So the preview part two continues this evening and for some reason Jim Fuching Howard played last night, pushing the Conk into a tight spot tonite.

And you can take that in any direction you want.

It’s a Live Blog, bitches.

WestWing… this is not the ‘97-‘98 Wings.

Doc is obsessed with using ‘waffleboarder’ away. WTF is a waffleboard? It’s one thing to use it as an occasional change of pace, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard him actually say ‘blockered’ away.

I would say they’re gonna love him in San Jose next year, but deep down I know those whining maggots they call fans in that town probably won’t.

That’s actually the one phrase he uses that’s not completely ridiculous. But it is overused.

Drinking everything in sight.  Looking exactly like the 2011-12 Red Wings—which is to say that this one goal deficit on the road looks all but insurmountable.

Wow…what a job transitioning 30 seconds of respect for Kronner into a 2 minute reach-around for the Cawks.  Ack!

sure would be nice if our defense men would put 2 in the net.

is that being greedy? i figure e52 owes us one, and one more from any other of our d men.

Peggy told me it’s gonna happen.

Reminds of that Hayes/McNabb comic strip by the dearly missed Divealanche.com:

The power of Forsberg.
The majesty of Forsberg.
The eyes of Forsberg.

If you remember the rest of that, that’s what this shitty broadcasts sounds like with the Cawk-fellating by Olcsux and Douche Canoe.

Can’t do it anymore.  I’ve shut out the sound.  It’s a hack job of a broadcast.

That exact play has happened a dozen time at least this game both ways….but now it’s a penalty?

Yeah, that was a Draper special. But somehow Drapes rarely got called for it.

Only in the 3rd and only against the Wings.

I shut the sound off a while back…makes it hard to know when the play resumes.  Rum helps.
