Eastward Bound Via Bullet Bob

It all comes back to Seger, back to Bullet Bob. Because it must. It's been decreed for 8 years.  Seger will guide us we'll follow him blindly.

We're going to see some old friends because Seger told us it's good for our soul. We've headed East because he said that a change would do us good.

On to the East because it makes sense. And it should have happened a decade ago back when our shrew commissioner told us it would. But he lied because that's what shrews do.  He lied like my babysitter did when I was six. That skank. I told her that all I wanted was to watch the damn Jerry Lewis Movie Marathon on Channel 25 in Saginaw at 4pm and she said she'd come get me when it was on but every time I asked what time it was she'd say "about that time" and I'd go back into my room and I missed the whole damn thing because her fat ass wanted to watch soaps. 

Well? It's about that time.

Jimmy D and Mr. I and Tick Tock? They're too smart to let it out, but I'll say it: we were promised the East but the East didn't come because Bettman was too busy riding the backs of the Winged Wheel to inflate the bullshit teams in places like Nashville, Phoenix, and Columbus. He was too busy helping hockey-dumb owners in Anaheim, LA, San Jose rake in the cash by doubling prices every time the Wings and our transplants hit town.

Well, see ya. And Good Frigging Riddance.  Because we're eastbound where we belonged years ago.
And as we leave? You can kiss our asses in Denver. Pucker up with your two bogus Cups, your idiotically retired sweaters, your spritzers and your oh-it's-so-tough-to-sleep beat writers. Suck it.  Take your statue of liberty and your 7-0 ass kicking in a game seven, take your Lemieuxs and your "footers" your Floppas, your endless youth movements, your carousel of coaches and your 6 fans..and shove them up your mile high Quebec stealing asses.

As we leave? You scumbags in St. Louis can suck it too.  Your "fuch Detroits"? Ha. Fuch you. Again. Every time. Every playoff series. Every Cup we've raised? Suck it. Take your Pall Malls and hand them to your sister/cousins.  We owned your asses for twenty years and you have nothing to show for it but bitterness and bile.  See ya.

Screw the West. Bring on the East.

Bring us your Rosbys, your fake captains with the "Made in Gary's Fantasy" tramp stamps. Bring us your Charas and watch him chase Datsyuk like a pregnant moose.  Bring us your badass "physical play" and watch your golden Swede defector pot PP goal after goal.

It's on now.  On to the East where we should have been if not for a midget with an agenda.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  With an Eastern slant like it should have been years ago.

Well, Jimmah’s scared because his eyelids are jammed and his old man’s here. We need a live rooster to take the curse off Zs stick and nobody seems to know how to play 6- minutes. We’re dealing with a lot of shit here.

They had a good first period and then fell asleep.

Won’t work against teams that will actually make the playoffs. Sorry.

Datsyuk getting high praise from Jones and Milbury. It’s like they’ve never watched a player this good before, and, have to admit it.

Didn’t see this at the time.  No message whatsoever; the Datsyuk line was on the ice when the penalty occurred.  They needed a breather.

Of the two UFA signings by Tick Tock, holy fuching hell, Weiss is a revelation.  Every time I saw him on the ice, he had eyes on all sides of his head and the ice awareness of an overlord.  He was in the perfect places almost all the time.

Helluva signing.

Hello to all my fellow reprobates. Was at the game last night and saw many good things. Anderson and DeKeyser looked great. Smith? Not so much. The circus line looked like their timing was off by micromilliters and will improve with time.

I think that signing Alfie will help taking pressure off Weiss to do too much.

Will probably miss the next 2 games with family stuff but looking forward to another stellar season with you all soon.  Go Wings and Go Tigers
