Abel to Yzerman

Chances of Success? Exactly Zero. Live Blog That And Stick It In Your Pipe.

The Wings have lost horrendously to the two worst teams in hockey.  Consecutive waterboardings. Disgusting.

So, tonite, against the team I believe to be the best in the Western Conference?

Tick Tock and Uncle Mike are starting a rookie because our other rookie (McCollum..is he even technically a rookie?) literally "terrifies" the organ-I-zation, and James Tiberius Howard is exhausted.

Our blue line is decimated and our third line can't score.  The fourth line has been instructed to let themselves get hit like Rudy Frigging Stein. Do not shoot. Do not swing. Do not make any offensive gestures. Engelbert's on deck and he's been killing the ball lately.

The Wings beat the Blues last time out after David Backes was tossed due to a clean check to a Detroit tummy.  He's going to be angry. The whole team is going to be absolutely frantic.  The crowd, amped up on Pall Malls and Ten High whiskey, will be quiet only long enough to swap tongues with whatever relative is on their immediate left. 

The opponent. The atmosphere. The Wings, themselves. 

All signs point to the worst regular season defeat in Detroit Hockey History. 

Two goals for Datsyuk. One for Wally and one for Charlie by God Buckets.

Wings win 4-2.

Howard still recalls the afternoon leading up to his NHL debut in 2005-06.

“I wasn’t nervous at all,” he said. “It was more excitement. I think that’s what he’s feeling. I wasn’t nervous at all until Stevie (Yzerman) told me I better not lose this one. That’s when the butterflies probably kicked in a little bit.”

Today through noon Friday.  Any of you lower P people getting snow?  Looks like my family in Owosso, Corunna, Chesaning, and New Lothrop will be getting 6 inches.

Ahoy, Master Chief.  Yes sir, I’ve had that fried chicken from a back alley chicken shack on the Marcos Hwy around Manila Bay.  dELISH…esp. when they used recycled two-cycle motor oil from their neighbors’ tricycles to re-fry the five-day old chicken legs.

Anyway, even that would sound comparably appetizing to what the Wings will have to face tonight.  Just get the fuching two points, Wings.

I’ve had the same stuff just before crossing the shit river bridge in Olongapo, SYF.  Best meal ever at 0100, buddy.

this is the stupid *#$%@& leadership in the NHL dragging their feet on a contract and then instead of having a real training camp and exhibition season, they just called everyone and said “btw, you’re playing in a few days” so they could squeeze in as many games as possible.  now players are getting hurt left and right.  greedy idiots.

That is awesome.  There really is nothing to say.

Maybe this is a season changer tonight.  More likely that the Blues score less than 4:30 into the game.  I’ll still be a fan.

I fear this is one of those nights I’m already going off the deep end.

This is the first time I have drank during a game since April 2010, so expect some slurrrr typing.

No, I am not a recovering alcoholic.  I am a Wingaholic.

Don’t know whether to LB the Wings game or the manhunt for the ex-cop, cop killing, homicidal maniac on the loose here in SoCal. So much bizzaro world sh!t has happened in the last 24 hours around here, including LAPD shooting two white women in a blue Toyota truck delivering newspapers while the suspect on the loose is a black male 6’ 270lbs ex-LAPD cop, who was driving a blue Nissan truck, until they found that truck on fire up in the San Bernardino mountains, which caused the closure of a nearby ski resort and the lockdown of all the local schools.

So I have the feeling that this game is going to require copious amounts of alcohol.  So I started an hour ago with the gin and tonic.  Working good so far.

Insert dagger into my eardrums. Bernie Federko. We traded Adam Oates to St.Lose for Federko and Tony McKegnie.

I cannot take the play by play when it always sounds like these guys are talking with their mouths full….... of something.
