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.

Howard should shit on his teammates. Literally. A massive dump on each of them.

So, why is Nyquist in the bottom-6?

I mean, just curious. Nyquist has put in some time, and Brunner hasn’t, yet Brunner gets a very, VERY slack leash.

Posted by RedMenace from the darkest recesses on 01/22/13 at 09:51 PM ET

I see your point, but it’s hard to say that Brunner hasn’t shown his worthiness.

On the plus side, Howard is playing great.

On the minus side, the Wings are one of the worst teams in the NHL.

I’m not saying he hasn’t, but Cleary is with Datsyuk and Flip.

Cleary.

Not Nyquist.

Well it is obvious now, the defense strategy for this season is Jimmy Howard. We might even win a few games if we had a few good pieces in front of him. Sunshine Babs doesn’t seem to have the answer, nor Tick Tock other than pray Jimmy doesn’t get hurt.

Why do they so consistently cycle the puck away from the net?

Totally agree.  I could see dropping the puck again, but a penalty?

You should see that kid play—size, speed, strength and a ton of hockey skills.  I’m never a big advocate of tanking, but I think he’s the kind of cornerstone player you can build around.
