How To Win A Game

Paul here for IwoCPO.

How this sound, instead of playing down 0-2, how about the Wings get a lead for a change?

Power play you say, I’d be happy with one pp goal and no shorties tonight.

Initiate some hitting, don’t wait to be hit.  Wings may be surprised to get a few turnovers from those hits.

Stop the cross-ice passes in the offensive zone, sure they look goo when they work, but far too often, the opposing team is prepared for that pass.

When bringing the puck into the offensive zone, how about trying to continue to skate instead of stopping at the half boards, a few strides in the zone.

Remember Detroit fans are watching at home, don’t make us go to bed at 11:30pm tonight, we want to stay up and watch a complete game.

When all else fails, depend on a parrot.

It’s a Live Blog bit****.

Whatup fuchers?  Starting to become confused as to why I stay awake for this shit.  But damnit, tonight is my birthday.  And the Wings are going to win one for me tonight.  I’ve only missed one game all year.  Hell I think that was the first game I missed in like 3 years.  They owe me a complete effort and dominating win.  Ahhhh, who am I kidding.  No shorties and a 1 goal win and we’re good.

Happy birthday good sir.  I’d you buy one but since you can’t our beer over the internet (still don’t know how Voox does that), I guess I’ll have to have one in your honor.

Hey!  Cool off angle shot by Zetterberg.  Those have a proven .0005% success rate.  I hate it when he does that.

Monotonous, Bezukov.  We’re at that point in deployment where you can kinda see the end on the horizon but you know it’s still a ways off and that makes you want to punch somebody in the face but you don’t because you’d get in trouble so you get into email arguments with your wife instead. It’s pretty fun.

The first penalty called on either team is likely to look pretty ridiculous given what’s been let go so far.

Been over to the sandbox several times and it’s the same way on AF deployments.  Especially when your airlift home gets delayed.  And delayed again.  And delayed again.  And then gets there and you see that it’s a C-5 and you KNOW it’s going to break…and then it does.  And then a week later you get to get half way home and marooned in Moron, Spain for a week which isn’t ALL bad but DAMMIT please can I just get home?
