I NOW Consider Brad’s Wife The Greatest Internet Victim Of All Time

The Detroit Red Wings are playing their "rivals" tonite, the Tampa Bay Lightning. 

I haven't given it more than a moment's thought, because I've been...

(a) mourning Michigan's loss, perhaps the worst basketball game I've ever seen

(b) aware that the Wings haven't beaten the Lightning yet this year because our father, Steve Yzerman, hasn't wanted it to happen and where the Wings are concerned, no matter whichever backward argument I'm making, Daddy gets his way unless his way means being the Wings GM. In that case, Ken Holland had his way and that's why the Wing Way essentially sucks.

(3) I've been much more concerned about Brad's Wife

Seriously. I've spent hours laughing at the Brad's wife saga.  You should, too. I know it's not the cool thing to do on Facebook.  I know that when on Facebook I should be linking to any and all internet sources that support whichever political view I happen to have at the moment. I know that by not blasting my political angst across the internet makes me an unconcerned pariah. I get it.

But, and I'm a Facebook guy...I do like it, I genuinely believe we all needed Brad's Wife to distract us from our friends who refuse to see any other opinion but their own.

Speaking of opinions, I have my own.  I do. But the only ones I'd like to share, publicly, are those regarding our Detroit Red Wings.

Our Wings have a scant 10 games left in this, our season of disgust. Many will be played against teams fighting for their playoff lives. We know about those lives. We've lived them for the last four years as Kenny Holland has created the circumstances that generated stressful Marches and never stressful Mays or Junes.

We are spoilers and if that sits well with you...well, I know it doesn't.

Ten games left before an offseason of bile. Do not think for one minute that the team you see tonight will be any better in October. I do not see how that could happen.  Oh, wait.  Yes it could. Our best goalie is sitting tonight, so there's that.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  LGRW, FKH ASAP and #justiceforbradswife for god's sake.

Due to personal reasons, I will not be commenting anymore here with you all the 19+

Thanks for including me, I learned a lot.

I wish only the best to each and everyone of you.

And hope the Wings can finish out the season decently, they’ve also had a tough year in several ways.

I hope they can rise to good things in their new facility.

Adios, and thanks for the laughs!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!

Oh, and Evenin’ Bitches!

First time not making the playoffs since I left Germany at the end of my second tour there.  Wow, I’m completing my second career over that period of time.

No disrespect to miller and Kronwall,,....but Bertuzzi,Frk, and Hicketts and Svechnikov should all have been up here and playing the last few weeks. What better time to see if the boys can swim or not…

I’d be more upset about only 4 shots on goal in the first period, except I’m willing to bet they’ve had fewer in the first several times this year.

It always amazes me to see the 4th liners get the majority of the scoring chances on this team.

Funny how other teams never seem to get the instigating and 10 min misconduct when they go after Wings players who make hits they don’t like

Might have caught the guy’s jersey on the way by causing the puck to flutter even more

Ask one of the resident mouth pieces on KK, Murray someone or other…. Sheahan is good at hockey, it’s KK members who don’t know anything. Same for Errorson, he’s really good but since you don’t coach kids, you don’t know sh*t.

how is it that RW defense men with the most grit (at least tonight) are Russo and Jensen.
