Autumn Closed In On Homer And We’re Live Blogging A Whole New Start

Saturday didn't happen.  Clubber Lang was fiction.  That Blues rookie was nothing but a nightmare, but holy hell that kid is good.  Enough about that. Didn't happen. 

You know what did happen for real and no BS? 

"Nine Tonight" was recorded in 1980 and it's unreal.  Know the best part? I know you do so don't sit there like Potsie Frigging Weber trying to pretend you're oblivious when we all know you've been paying attention all these years.

"Just like southern Michigan summer time."  That line is just so Seger.  And Seger is so Michigan because he's never forgotten his roots.  He belts that line out and the Cobo crowd goes nuts. 

But wait...here's the best part.  It wasn't Cobo...it was Boston.  He changed that line and tailored it to us...in Boston.  He didn't go all Dave Matthews on us and say it was just like "eastern Nantucket summer time" to please those Northeastern yuppie tools. No. He brought Michigan to them.

It's why I can't get away from Seger.  The ultimate transplant who can't leave MI behind, like more than a few of us.

I have nothing to say about the Wings that I haven't already said today.  Husk and Gus in.  Fredo and William Tell out.  Quite The ClusterFuch is in, of course.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  As it should be.

If you’ve never cleaned it out, I’d bet there’s a decent amount of dust, pubic hair, or other unmentionable substances making life hard

You say “nVidia card,” but is it a discreet card or a chipset-based, shared memory type deal?
If you’ve never cleaned it out, I’d bet there’s a decent amount of dust, pubic hair, or other unmentionable substances making life hard for the fan(s)/heatsink(s).

Discrete card. With the places I’ve taken that thing, I’m not sure I want to know what’s inside.And those are just the places in my own house. Does Molly Maids clean the insides of computers?

Thanks for all the tech advice. Now back to our regularly scheduled completely inept power play.

My Lab is watching the game with me. When they called the PP, he snorted, and got up and laid down in the other room.

Just sayin’

My wife’s german shephard is laying halfway under the bed asleep.  Seriously, it’s an ugly powerplay but under the bed?

The PP is an obscenity - and not in the good sense of the word

Lashoff stayed right with Jagr on that rush, good to see.

I believe that the Wings’ opponents so far have more quality scoring chances during Red Wings power plays than Detroit has shots on net.

So are young gun can keep up with a 40 year old; something to be thankful for. When did Jaromir the Poodle sign with Dallas?

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
