It’s A Stress Train Weekend

First: go here. Read it. Heed it. Act.

I've got bad feelings about Jim Leyland's Tigers. Can't pinpoint it, just do.  The visions I've had are not good. Like getting swept not good. Can't explain it. A gut feeling.

I've got bad feelings about Michigan. Akron and UCONN, those powerhouses, exposed them. 

I don't think the Lions can beat Green Bay in Green Bay or in Saginaw Bay.

But...

...as always, we've got the Wings. And beer. For everyone. The whole weekend.  You're going to need it, I'm afraid. 

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  A down south friendly tonight and the Big, Bad Bruins tomorrow. The beast of the Big, Tough East. 

Whatever happened to Acid Queen? Remember her? She hated the Wings. Despised us, too. I think she actually wished a nuclear explosion on our quaint little town.  Ah well.  They come and they go, just like Max Mercy said.

Game 2. 12 in 14.

Nothing says it’s the beginning of hockey season like having to fix the air conditioner in your car so you can make the trip to see the wings game.  One can of a/c leak fixer and one can of r 134A and I’m good to go. 35 miles north of Raleigh on highway 1. 

Just about the hottest driest stretch all year. Hello hockey.

Slainte, Chief.  Just when I’m starting to feel good about the Tigers, I see:

I’ve got bad feelings about Jim Leyland’s Tigers.

I’m absolutely all giddy.

She’s a little too late for that wish.

That is one of the unsung benefits of the Wings moving to the East…RWBill will get to see more games!
I remember Acid Queen!  She hated us all, but I liked her.  Her high point was when the ‘canes won the cup.
How long will Tatar ride the bench?  Until the Wings lose a few games and Babs gets itchy for some goals.

Ah the Acid Queen, you can find her last comment on a KK blog here at TPSH.

I share your feeling about the Tigers, Master Chief.  Want them to do it this year, but the bull pen scares the bejeebers out of me.

Meanwhile.

LET’S GO RED WINGS !!!!!

I’d throw the Lions and the Tigers in the Saginaw bay, and convert to being a State fan (just threw up a little there) if it would some how get Nyquist and Tatar into the lineup.

Don’t worry about the Tigers. And don’t underestimate how much they all want it.

And don’t worry about the Lions. Until they actually make it to a conference title game or super bowl, I think worrying about the spotted owl or snail darter is more productive. That said I’ll be rooting hard for them to beat the pack. I am Lions fan with low expectations.

Is 42Jeff still in the Dakota’s getting clobbered by that blizzard (is it even October yet?) or did he retire back to amway country? Stay warm if you’re still in Minot, Jeff. That storm looks nasty.

Just wanted to pop in and thank Bill for putting up the link for donations.

Without the help of the “19”, I don’t know how I would survive.

Tthe lockout almost brought me to my knees but the future looks much brighter.
