Guralnick’s Homer Chronicles

Great, great stuff (as usual) from official A2Y photographer, David Guralnick. He's posted a collection of Tomas Holmstrom images that will give you a great look at the career of the man the league loved to shaft.

Here's one...


See ya, Homer.  Watch his farewell press conference here.

How Homer is not paralyzed from the waist down due to cross checks on his spine is miraculous.

Quite a few guys pulling on the winged wheel could learn a lesson in effort from Homer.

To bad he couldn’t teach someone to actually stand in front and tip in pucks..

I just can’t look at any more of those pics right, seeing him getting assaulted, and seeing the effort and sacrifice make me mad at what I saw Saturday night.  Or didn’t see.

An era is over.

Nobody got screwed, shafted, and cross-checked more than Homer - nobody.  Nobody “paid the price” more than Homer.

Outstanding work-ethic, night after night.

I love that picture.

Why?

Karma might’ve finally caught up to that prick.

Homer defined the"in front of the net” position. There will NEVER be another like him, and, his magnificent, beautiful,  puck deflecting ASS.

Godspeed Homer.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
