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.

It’s referred to as “The Doanbag Rule”.

Oh, I thought that rule was about whose name is not allowed on the Cup.

That’s the Joe Thornton rule.

Wings pace has slowed down, and these penalties sure as hell aint helping. Need a good magic shift.

Dear Drew Miller,

How many times do we have to watch you try and squeeze it along the boards and get pinched out of the play? Whats wrong with a little open ice? It’s not that I don’t love you, it’s just i’m trying to get Nyquist in the line up for a little regular time.

Meanwhile, it would appear Zebras as a species have terrible eyesight. Hope Dangles isn’t too bruised up after that.

Only half as many times as Dan Cleary. But Miller is quick enough that he actually pulls it off sometimes.

I want to go ahead and be the very first to start bitching about Edzo’s commentary on the game this coming Saturday afternoon.

That crap last weekend was the worst I can remember.

That retarded NBA executive who said that attendance is up 8.7% around the league?  That lying sack of shit could’ve fooled me when FSD showed highlights of the Pistons/Bucks game.

When was the last time the wings had a judgement call penalty called against the other team?  Someone brought this up a few games ago, but I can’t even remember the last time the other team was called for hooking or holding.

Jack Daniels and Jim Beam on the point.  Johnny Walker and George Dickel up front centered by Evan Williams.

Ladies and gentlemen, you’re #1 power play unit.

i’m totally going to jinx this, but a certain e fifty douche hasn’t been in the box/done anything particularly stupid for six whole periods of play. Right back to the first against Chicago.

I feel like a proud father, but the sort of proud where the kid is now only shoving two pencils up his butt instead of the whole box.

For the life of me I cannot figure out this years’ Red Wings.  They truly are schizo, as evidenced by their home and away record and their maddening ability to play down to the level of the Leafs, the Isles, the ‘Yotes and others.  I honestly don’t have any idea how they will do come playoff time unless they straighten out the PP and play defense first.
