Got Cake? We’re Gonna Live Blog It

Look.  Richard Harris was "A Man Called Horse".  Have you seen it? You should.  He was a bad, bad man. A tough man.  So, why then--in 1968--did he feel the need to sing a song like MacArthur Park?

It's an age-old mystery, rivaled only now by this question:

Why would Ryan Suter and his BFF Zach Parise go to Minnesota where they'll never win anything more than a division crown (if that) when they could have gone to Detroit or Chicago or Pittsburgh, where Cups would have been guaranteed?

Someone left the cake out in the rain

I don't think that I can take it

'Cause it took so long to bake it

And I'll never have that recipe again, oh no

He left his frigging cake out in the rain.  And he can't take it.  Why? Because it took so damn long to bake it.  And now the Ingalls sisters are in Walnut Grove with the barn dances and the one-room schools and that little bitch Nellie Olson running roughshod over the whole damn town.  No Cups, but plenty of family and love and cake.

And now they're here (in Detroyet) tonite, where they could have been all along. 

Confusion rules the day when it comes to Dick Harris, Horse, horrible songs and the Ingalls sisters. 

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  LGRW.

That is awesome.  Say, how much would 10 acres cost in Costa Mesa?

Posted by RWBill from the open bar on The Hasek. on 03/20/13 at 09:53 PM ET

Probably a bit more than mine did.  We had actually looked at it last February when I was initially looking at retiring but somebody snagged it up before we could get the financng set up.  I was on the phone with my dad on fathers day last summer and he drove by the place “Hey, that place on M82 has a for sale sign in front of it”  A couple seconds later I hear the tires screeching and my mom screaming in the background “KEN WHAT THE FUCH ARE YOU DOING”

WIthin a few minutes I started getting texts with pictures in it…the guy who bought it from under us was a contracter and REALLY done some work to the place.  smile

Puck is hit out of play from center ice, and Doc has to comment on it not being a penalty?

Thanks…and the best part is it’s between four other ten acres of bliss…also with cropland on the south sides and the Muskegon river on the north side.  Did you know Michigna sells deer tags to vets for $5?  smile  I found that out over THanksgiving. 

It was AWESOME sitting out in my wood with a buck AND a doe tag.

Who wants 10 acres in Costa Mesa? That’s like wanting ten acres in Wyandotte

Not that it would matter with Detroit’s PP, but it’s funny that when the Wings are up big going into the 3rd they spend loads of time on the PK yet Minny’s just hook after hold after interference for all their worth this period and it just stays 5 on 5.

Shizzle, now flashback to the 80s, when the East German agents paid the putzfraus to hand over everything they cleaned out of our trash cans on base.

I propose a new team system.

when the Wings forwards score, the three guys on the ice are now the #1 line.  they get the #1 line minutes until another forward line scores, then they are the #1 line…

might as well.  nothing else is working.

Helluva lot more logic and reason in that approach compared to Babs “system”
