Abel to Yzerman

Driven By A Mule

Paul here subbing for IwoCPO who emailed me earlier today, asking if I could post the live blog since he was about to lose web access.

So here I am, not dazzling you with my vanilla vocabulary but rather stating it is time to ride “The Mule”.

The Wings need a strong game from Franzen tonight and if so, everything else falls into place.

If not, someone unexpected will need to step up.

So enjoy this ‘late-nighter’ and you have my permission to take Friday off.

It’s a Live Blog bit****!

I grew up just north of Grand Rapids…have done the last 5 1/2 years in North Dakota.  Saw more snow the last four years than I think I saw my whole time in Michigan.  This year…there’s barely anything on the ground.

It was 67 in the Killadelphia area yesterday. Mid 50s today. Very mild winter this year, and I am not complaining.

Chanting “Red Wings suck” when your currently losing to the Red Wings is just like saying “But we suck more.” Stoopid canuck fans

Have a Wing player take Salo’s skates out from under him on an icing playing breaking one of his fragile little ankles and then maybe the Vancouver fans will realize how ridiculous their booing of that call was.

I take that back….breaking Salo’s ankle might cause a riot.
