Let The Spectacle Of A Wing/Leaf Throwdown Distract You From The Fact That This League Is A Joke

Negotiating ploy, posturing, a whole load of crap…whatever it is, the shrivs are at it again and the ones paying the price are those of us stupid enough to have believed something cool like the realignment couldn’t be ruined by the likes of Gary. Ass and his band of idiots.

George has it all here and will most likely tackle this more thoroughly than anyone else, because he’s Malik and that’s what Malik does. Winging it in Motown nailed it late last night too.

I will not be writing about it anytime soon because it sickens me and I only like talking about things that make me happy.

James F. Howard is going for his 100th win and the Wings are playing well.  By the time you read this the whole subject we won’t speak of might be resolved because it’s 0932 your time on game day, 1932 my time the day after (figure that shit out) and I’m pre-posting this bad boy.

It’s a Live Blog, bitches.  Enjoy this one because you may not get another Wing/Laugh LB for a while if the dickheads have their way.

Grapes talking about goal scorers riding their sticks are calling them classless… well Don maybe you don’t remember Tiger Williams who used to do it after nearly every goal he scored.  What a richard.

Totally unrelated:  Why is it more expensive wine usually tastes worse?  Is my palette simply that unrefined?

Too many variables to give you a good answer.  More expensive should taste better… but not always.  I usually tell people not to worry about terms like “fruit- forward” or “buttery”.  Drink what tastes good to you.

Being in the wine business I think I can answer that one.  There are some wines that I often refer to as “*#$%@& wines”—expensive and made for suckers.

Well, when I refer to “more expensive,” I mean “$10 a bottle.”  Normally I drink the CHEAP shit from the high-volume “wineries.”

Sometimes I think the “H” in “HNIC” stands for “Homer.”

Man, that was a lot of quotation marks.  Here are some more, just for posterity: ” “”” ” ” “”“” ” ” “”“”“” “”“”“”“”“”“”“”“”” “

Kronwall making the play at the blueline.  None of that happens without him making the diving effort.

Had I not know better I would have thought the Leafs were leading the league in points and were the fastest team in the history of the NHL.
