Hard Times

It's getting harder and harder to watch the Wings these days. While many of us do hang in there and show up here at A2Y for a game, this team is making it easier to find better things to do. Still, we are hockey fans, Wings fans. Even when our team isn't the best, we watch.

We know from experience to expect more hard times ahead. With that in mind, anyone that decides to spend time here, thank you. 19 of us, here for the conversation, and joking around. Maybe the occasional win.

It's a Live Blog!

Thanks Kate. I lurk but do not post as much. My wife gets on my ass to get off my phone and watch the game with her. Lol. I don’t blame her and she’s prettier than Cal.

Good day 19. It’s great to see everyone. The up side is yelling at the Wings to relieve my frustration about all the things I can’t control. Which of course are all things….. grrr

You really think the problems so far this game are because of Bernier?  OK, then.

Devils winning, Wings losing. Here we come 2nd place in the “lose for Hughes” sweeps.

Gregg Krupa tweeted out what Blashill said on the radio before the game…

“our best hockey is when we defend great and don’t spend too much time in our own end.

“they are a team that can spend a lot of time in your end.”

He knew what was coming.
