Huron’s Rolling, Superior’s Singing and The Musty Old Hall Is Chock Full

I don't have much.  Detroit's made two huge offseason signings over the last two years.  Our GM, aggressive because he knows a title is within reach and always looking for ways to make his owner and his fan base happy, has refused to acknowledge parity as an option.  Refused.

Detroit's GM is a swashbuckler.  He gobbles opportunities. He's fearless. And he's being rewarded...

Hunter's hitting .415 and Fielder? .439.

Yes, that GM.

And Kyle Quincey sits.

Too morose? Blame Ken Holland.  I'll be watching the Tigers until game time.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  LGRW.  Just get in (how's that sound, Tick Tock? Is that the refrain you like to hear from Wing fans with the playoffs two weeks away?).

same country of origin,

different family, not a blood relative.

(me thinks the name Forsberg in Sweden is like Smith in good ole US of A ... kinda common smile )

You do realize that this only happens every single time the Wings play in that building, right?  Not being a smartass, I just don’t want everybody to be all shocked and shit when the inevitable five-on-three comes.

I’m not sure if it’s “trying” to draw an interference call when you’re actually interfered with
