In The Face Of A Hurricane West Wind

My mood hasn't changed from five hours ago, or whenver I wrote that post. I'm avoiding going home. My DVR will hum like a male Dive fan.  And I'll wait as long as I can to start watching.  It will be torture.

But, at some point, I'm going to watch this game.

In the dark recesses of our most horrific pessimism, there is hope.  You hate the playoffs because you feel you should. You despise this night because your instincts tell you to.  You know the Wings will  lose this thing because it's a defense mechanism baby Jesus gave to you as a gift.

But it's not real. The real part of you actually believes they can do this.  It might even be the logical part, if that makes any sense. Logic tells you anything can happen in a Game 7 because you've seen every scenario. No one has seen what you have. No one.

As bad as 6 was and as horrible as the last two days have been?

We're in a better place than any other fan of any other team in history.  You literally have genuine, justified, real hope that your team can advance to the Western Conference Finals.  You have that hope because of who you are and because of who they are.

You are Detroit Red Wing fans.  We are owed this night, this opportunity because we are the elite and the arrogant. You have swagger because your team is the gold standard.

Do this. Burn. This. Fuching. Conference. Down.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  And, yes Monkey, it's on.

of COURSE they find a way to call a penalty on the Wings out of all that, because surely not a single Hawks player in any of that chaos did anything wrong.  sheesh.

At intermission:

“Hawks PK remains stingy”

Though Detroit has just about killed off their second penalty to the hawks 1 (and was not flat footed when Crawford killed the penalty for them).

At the start of the game, doc said something about the two captains, something like one will practice Friday, one with practice at training camp.  I may be reading too much into it, but at the time I thought, if the wings win the series starts on Friday, Chicago wins it starts Saturday.  So the wings wouldn’t practice one Friday, since they would have a game.

14 non calls on Shitcago.  We should be +/- in the Bonus by the beginning of the third and get a penalty call. Yeah!!

Thanks all. Tornado warning over, watch until near midnight, flood warning continues but I think I am okay on that account.  Just few little thunderstorms continuing.  Got the satellite back…now as suggested a triple of Black Bush! 

I promise no more weather reports from Lincoln.
