Jackson Browne Is Banned Forever

Stupid move on my part yesterday.  I introduced one JB, then concluded with another JB and in the process pretty much guaranteed a shutout at the hands of some BJs.  

Yesterday reminded us that (a) the Wings are not ripe with talent so grit is kinda required these days, and (b) we are in for a long stress-filled journey the next two months if Detroit can't beat Columbus in Columbus.  Because if the Wings can't win there, they're not going to win in Anaheim, Chicago, San Jose or practically any other town. There's also this (c): the Wings powerplay is disgusting.  Not just on the road. Overall. It's obscenely inept.

But of course, since they're at home, playing the same team that whipped them yesterday, with almost the identical lineup Detroit iced in shitbag Columbus 24 hours ago...they'll go like 4 for 7 with the man up and win 8-1.  Because Howard means that much, right?

Wrong, bitch. Wrong.  Uncle Mike?  

If the powerplay isn't working, that's on you.  Not Tom Renney or any assistant before him we saw fit to lay waste to.  No.  You might have delegated a few things but when it sucks it's on you.  And if a team can't win on the road, in Columbus? That's on you, too.  And if a team loses a season series to...Columbus?  

That's you too, big boy.

But we still dig you, Mike. We do.  It's just getting harder to type it.

It's a Live Blog, bitches. No songs. No gimmicks. No predictions. Just a steamroller full of tar, warm beer, some out of date cheddar and an ass-ton of stress.

The worst part about living in Columbus is a I get stuck with the Jacket’s broadcast…. these guys don’t know what color the blue line is.

The ribs were great. I’ve got the baby backs dialed in; my spares still need some work. More practice!

It is obvious Babs has strong man love for Abby.  Go ahead, put lipstick on that pig.  Doesn’t mean we still won’t see it for what it is.

If only he could have passed on some scoring touch… any scoring touch.

8-13-93. Babs really hates Pavs. I wouldn’t pair my worst enemy with Ass.
Shit, at least Buckets still has a work ethic.

I actually think this team misses Fil right now. Would balance everything out, even if we still had 8 with 13.

Afterevenin’ (fuchdaylightsavingtime) Bitches.  Yesterday is history
                                                  Tomorrow is a mystery
                                                  Today is a gift
                                                  That’s why it’s called the “present”

I expect a win in the present. FUCH yesterday. It’s gone.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Every Wing looks so ridiculously soft on the puck when they’re on the PP.

Does anyone know of an Iphone app that would allow for live game streaming other than the Gamecenter app? I’m looking to stream 1 game and would pay for it, but not $50….any help would be appreciated.
