Autumn’s Closing In…And The Ship Must Be Cleansed

I honestly don’t know how any of us have survived.  Wojo pointed this out today and it reminds me just how much I hate the playoffs.

Since 2010, Detroit’s past 10 playoff losses have been by one goal.

That’s just disgusting.  As disgusting as a Wog? No, but close.

At least if we were Pens fans, our team would be getting blown out and the third periods wouldn’t be so painful.

There is no doubt that this one’s big on a Billy Baroo scale.  They’re not winning this thing after going down 1-3 and losing two straight on home ice.  The penalties have to stop. The pucks need to find space behind some Rinne ass and I’ve got to absolutely slaughter some slimey, motherfuching wogs.

Ah yes. For the first time in my Navy career, I’ve got a serious conflict between the playoffs and maritime tradition. 

We cross over into the Raging Main at first light and the cleansing will begin soon after.  More than a thousand Slimey Wogs infest this ship at the moment so it will be a long, torturous process…a process that will prevent me from even following along via the LB comments.  For the first time in more than twenty years, I’ll find out the score of a playoff game well after its completion.

This isn’t a Game 7 but it’s damn close.  Lose this one and we’ll be living by the sword and that’s not where Bullet Bob, King Neptune or Davey By God Jones wants us to be.

It’s a Live Blog, bitches and I’ll either be ravaging my way through the comments afterward or deleting them all in one big bitter fell swoop. Please baby Jesus. Please let it be the former.

bezukov, go straight to the hard stuff. 2 hours of serious beer drinking, and I am not in the same zip code with enthusiasm.

My hockey team is down 2-1 in its playoff series, I had to work late, and there is no liquor in the cabinet, and the only thing in the fridge is Old Milwaukee…. if that isn’t a country song ready to be written I dunno.

This is the first time I’ve seen some intelligence with regard to this move by the Wings in a while.  Kudos to you my friend.

Thanks, but be careful who you give kudos to. Although I think since game one Quincy has looked out of place and the same as when he was here as a rookie, I am also a big Hudler fan. Before you go and kick me out of the club. Count how many times a Wing plants in from of the goalie tonight and take notice who it is. Hudler is in the trench more than any other wing besides Homer.

Throw a pick-up truck line in there and something about your dog that has passed and I think you’re on to something.

We’ve got to move their Pekka. We have to get their Pekka going from side to side.

They have a big Pekka, but we can beat him.

Even the dog (Gordie, you’ll never guess where I got that name) looks like he needs a beer (joking).

Does a beat up Oldsmobile count as a truck?
