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.

In a tight checking physical game, I’d settle for a 29 yr old Shanahan, even though I hate his guts now

I meant that for the 4 x 4 time, I’m probably a couple of minutes behind.  Sergei in 4 x 4 time was the most dangerous bastard in the league.

OT again.  This can’t be good for anyone.

I said it last game—nothing, not women, not job stress, not even alcohol, has shaved more time off my lifespan than Red Wing playoff overtimes.

This time they’re just content to burn the team down.

Saw a guy today say that the coach, GM both need fired, both Luongo and Schneider need to go, and then a list of about 12 other Canucks that needed to be traded, expired, or waived including Kesler, the Sedins, and Edler.

If they wanna use that fire to toast marshmallows, well they certainly have a team full of ‘em.  Soft and gooey on the inside.  Outside too for that matter.
