Forgetting Live Blogs

It's what I do now, and as I do with every problem in my life, I blame Ken Holland.

I avoid thinking of our Red Wings. I truly do. I have enough turbulence(ance) in my life.  Lou Whitaker left off the ballet(ot), the Lions, Michigan football, chinch bugs ruining my frigging yard, angsty fifteen year olds, a perfect and adorable grand(d)aughter, defending the Florida coast line.

So I forget. And the emperor backs me up and it makes me feel sad. 

I see rumors flash across my device. Mrazek on the block? I'd have said no problem a few months ago and you know I would have. Not a fan.  But now the dong is flacid and you don't trade a peter when your other dong isn't stiffly and staunchly doing his job. 

So don't trade Mrazek. Not now. Not when we still hope to back in, because..honestly...we're all hoping to just get in. Trading Mrazek now would be, yes, a dick move. 

It's a Live Blog, bitches. 

LGRW and FKHASAP.

“Where is Sweet Lou?” Is the first thing I said to my sister. And trading Razor would be not just be a dick move, it would be stoopid also..

Yunno… yeah, we had some giveaways, but Jimmy needed to be alert in a large number of those goals against. Instead, he was two or three steps behind the play. We need to limit turnovers—especially in our own zone, but we need Jimmy or Petr to be alert for when it does happen.

Hóla, Bitches!
Spent my first day into what could be final voluntary retirement, after fighting off the normal Sunday night queezy gut I always got on Sunday night having to face school or work the next morning for the past 60 years. 

Only received one “How do you ...” call today.

I would also keep an eye on ebay! I’d love one, but am pretty sure it’ll be out of my price range.

Florida had more shots on our power play than we did. Sounds about right.

So far, he’s saved all that he’s faced so far. You can’t see it, but I’m knocking pretty hard on my wood desk here.

Solid game so far. Z tried to play it so cool after his goal.

LCA is Very quiet. Half empty. Organist is nice.

Nothing on the concourse should be keeping so many people from their seats (allegedly). Seats are indeed packed in like sardines. Free WiFi works good though!

But the LCA is Very nice compared to the joe.

Good to see Tram and Jack in the HOF. Lou deserves to join em. Heard the knock against him is poor relationship with the press.

Kate here are a couple of my favorite D-Boss picks.  I didn’t take the first one, the second is on my car.
