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!

Wings had a 3 win streak around the all star break. I figured he must be pushing the right buttons.

Whatever this is….is the opposite. Oof.

We could be worse. Look at Anaheim. They just fired Carlisle 1 week after giving him a vote of confidence. That team has just flat oot quit on em and the change had to be made.

I say, I say son that sounds like libel to me. You will be hearing from my new law firm:  Sue, Grabbitt and Runne. Best in the business.
