Do Not Be Ashamed…It’s Happened To Bankers, Lawyers, Cops and Happy Czech Oompa Loompas

I worked Seger and our Happy Hudler into the same post title, and talked about hookers without even having "hookers" as a phrase that will catch the spammers.  Of course, the ads here on KK should be interesting for a few days.

I digress. As usual.  Hey guess what Ryan Getzlaf's faceoff stats are through four games?

He's taken 92 faceoffs and won 0.

That's a lie but it's an educated lie.

The Wings have owned him.  Datsyuk has owned him.  Zetterberg: owned him. Andersson: owned him.  Gilchrist: owned him. 

By and large, he's done nothing.  By and larger, Z and our Russian Prince have been amazing.  Tough, tireless, terrific..just like Mitch would say (our delicate genius).  Corey Perry?

That little dumpster diver hasn't done dick. 

Two ways to look at that: Wings are dominating their best players, but still tied 2-2.  Or, Wings have held them down and that can't last for long. 

Either way, it's a good reason to just start pounding warm PBR right now.

Gary's starting this game at 8 on the West Coast. (NEVERMIND IT'S 7, I THOUGHT IT WAS 8.  SHIT.) Seriously, that's late even for those of us ON the West Coast.  You suckers have to stay up until at least 2. And you will. Every single one of you.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  Take us to 6. Get us back to the Joe with a chance to clinch in front of that madhhouse.

Cleary is back out there.  No injury, so there won’t be a hearing or suspension.

When the game is 2:2 and the series is 2:2, it’s time to miss Tootoo.

I’m pretty sure Ericsson let Perry get back up just so he could knock him down again.

At this rate, if the 19 were coaching this game, the NAB line would be the only guys left on the ice.

Dumbass duh ucks announcers, it can’t be a high stick if the stick doesn’t leave the ice and your player is bent over

they get on our D quick because they know they could force a mistake quickly.  that’s their best shot.

Sorry Smith, it’s Game 5, they’ve seen that fake a bunch of times now.

That faceoff wasn’t even close to even.  The ref practically threw it away from Andersson and at the Duck.

Datsyuk may be the only guy I’ve ever seen that can fan on a shot in traffic, and regain possession still anyways.

Are you watching a replay from the 1st period, or perhaps the 2nd?  Happened a lot then too
