Little Gary:  “They Love Me In Hockeytown”

Or something like that.  The emperor posted a MacLean’s interview with Rosby’s Daddy today and one portion of it stuck out even more than the rest.  Don’t get me wrong, every answer is filled with lies and ineptitude.  But this one hits home for many of us.

Q: You were booed when you presented the Stanley Cup—and that was in the United States.

A: I was booed presenting the Stanley Cup in Detroit to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Had I been presenting it in Pittsburgh I probably wouldn’t have been booed.

You were booed in Detroit because every single one of us knew you got exactly what you wanted.  And you’d gone out of your way to make sure it happened. 

But it wasn’t just the scheduling, the officiating, the blind eye toward what should have been an automatic suspension.  It’s much more and much longer than that Gary.  You were booed in Detroit because there are real hockey fans there who know what you’ve done to the sport and what you’ve tried to do to the Ilitch family and the Wings. 

You can call it “parity” in public Gary.  But we know better and so do you.  In your little office, beneath your Rosby and Kane posters, when the fire is lit and the brandy comes out?  It’s called “watering down the Wings.”  Well. Nice try bitch.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
