Home Is Where The Laughter Is: C’mon In Shane

First, Terry Foster is sad because the Pistons are drawing Dive-like numbers at the Palace.  Me? I couldn’t be happier that (a) Foster isn’t writing about the Wings because he’s garbage and (2) that Detroit sports fans are ignoring that sport and that team. It’s a win-win-win.

Secondly, Shane Doan visits the Joe tonite and watching him get beaten is just plain fun for the while fam damily.

As Okie pointed out this morning, Hockeytown’s Favorite Carrier is back where baby Jesus needs us most and that’s just nifty.  It’s almost 8:30pm as I post this and I think that means a 0430 start time for me. I may oversleep it again and that’s just fine because missing the last game may have been the greatest thing in the history of my life (Rocky II).

It’s a Live Blog bitches. Enjoy it.

Who are these Pistons of which you speak? I thought the NBA was composed of four teams, the Celtics, the Lakers, the Heatles and some new team called the Clippers; at least according to the sports media, that is.

Be safe out there. Between the Somali pirates and the Iranian “fishermen,” it’s hard to tell who the good guys are.

Terry Foster is so anti-Wing it’s not even funny. He’s spent a career trying to convince Detroiters that they don’t really like the Wings, they are really in love with the Pistons.

I know I’ve told this story before, but it still floors me. Among all the wonderful Wings coverage in the 2002 Cup run was an article in the paper by Foster, telling us all the so-called ‘excitement’ about the Wings run was really a fabrication by an excellent PR dept, because he walked into a bar in Greektown during one of the early playoff games and one TV was NOT on the Wings game, but on baseball.

Fuch him. Useless.

Long time ago, Foster was on WDFN with Art Regner, and because Art is such a hockey nut Foster was forced to play along.

The Wings Flagship station is now 97.1 FM (and everyone on the air is a JOKE) , and they have at least twice since the NBA season started on Christmas, bumped the Wings to a 25 Watt AM station and put the Pistons on the more powerful FM station. The only hockey talk on the station is 2 hours in the evening once a week.

The *#$%@& is a “Terry Foster”?

Sounds like the kind of shit you’d ask for from a one-legged Danish hooker immediately before she asks if Jiri sent you and about six hours before you wake up in a dumpster covered in cigarette burns and petroleum jelly.
