Ken Holland’s Forgotten Red Wings

I just took a look at the NHL.com home page.  Why? I was going to find out how many games are left in the Holland Opus (2017-18 season).  

Then I got curious.

I counted 61 headlines from top to bottom, to include the stories on the side bar sections.

61 stories: not one headline mentioning the Red Wings.

54 pictures on the main page. None of a Red Wing. 

Literally the only mention was in the list of upcoming games on Gary's flaship, NBCSN.  The Wings play LA on NBC on....15 March.  Beware.

Sorry, Shakespeare reference.

If I have seemed morose this whole year, I have been. I won't apologize for it.  Anyone accepting what Ken Holland and "his team of advisors" have allowed this team to turn into...I question you. 

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Imma gonna try to stay awake. If not, I can read Paul’s recap in the AM. 

Remember when, if you fell asleep early, during a West Coast game, you could rest assured the outcome would most likely be a Wings win? I do.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!

Or we watched Sharkie hanging by a rope 100ft. in the air and the crew placed mats on the ice below him if he fell.  The look on Bowman’s face was priceless.

Ahoy, Evenin’ Bitches!

Thinking about the Holland Red Wings made me think of this; there are more than 50 sphincter muscles in the human body.  How many can you name?

IIRC when Mo and I attended a game there, the lighting did seem to have a bluish tint to it.

Rule changes I like: eliminating the red line 2-line pass.
Rule I don’t:  the trapezoid.  Why keep it?

How’s that secession process going?  California already has a stiffer car inspection driving into the state than Saudi Arabia.  The players probably needed their passports stamped to get into California.

I’ve hated the trapezoid since it’s inception. Don’t let fatso and his inflated stats linger in this league.

That’s correct. Cali is a hell-hole, bankrupt, and a haven for illegals. Whatever you do don’t move here. rolleyes

I wish I knew of a way to post the pictures I’ve taken off the deck of my home. At times the sunsets are stunning.
