Game Day? If You Say So Then We’ll Live Blog It

Well. Yesterday (for me) I posted an “off day digging” ditty even though it turned out to be game day for you which is practically obscene.  Now, we have a game starting at 9pm Thursday night EST, I think. That means it’s 6am Friday and I’m pretty sure I’ll be awake which is nice.

Top spot in the West is the Wings’ to grab tonite and very few things in our lives are more important than securing it, holding it, nurturing it.  That top spot must be cupped and fondled and there is no place anywhere on earth better suited for that than in the palm of one James F. Tiberius Howard.  Craig Custance, the best hockey writer in Detroit, told us so this morning and it’s a personal decree of mine to believe everything Custance writes.

“Howard is growing into one of the league’s elite goalies and the fans in Detroit are starting to realize it. During the final 90 seconds of Monday’s shutout win over the Sabres, they filled the rafters of Joe Louis Arena with chants of his name. It was almost as if 20,000 people realized at the same moment that their goalie has matured into one of the game’s best.”


You, Mr. Custance, are gloriously correct.  And this is a Live Blog, bitches.

It’s all part of Bab’s master plan. Let the ‘Yotes skate out all of their youthful exuberance in the first period then crank up the forecheck and stifling defense as the game goes on.

Desert Dogs’ announcers with major praise for Dangle.  I love hearing other crews fawn over our little martian, and I actually don’t hate this crew as they are fairly neutral this game and not just slobbering over the home team.
