Live Blogging Yet Another Humiliation Of Pinky And The Wild

The Wings are in Minnesota.  The Tigers are in Texas.  I’m on the road posting on a phone.

Wannabe Wild blogger, Pinky, is worried.  Not worried that he only averages about 4 comments per post in the three years his highbrow blog has been spewing literary genius on the Gore, Pinky is worried that the Wild are about to get spanked by the Wings tonight and make life in Minnesota even more miserable than it already is. 

Frankly, Pinky should be worried.

The Wings have looked good aside from some whiskey dick on the power play.  It’s not that I’ve been watching, having missed every game so far due to work, there’s no fauxing way I’m going to be the gamewrecker tonight.  However, using advanced statistical analysis, I predict a 19-1 victory tonight for the Wings.  Rest assured the math is strong within me.  I’m using the same cutting edge tools that allow a certain unnamed blogger to predict the League MVP one week into the season.

With the Tigers paw deep, and clinging onto their lives, in their series against Texas, attention will be divided tonight.  It’s okay, the Hasek has been through enough playoff series that we take for granted the 19 will be saturated in various bodily fluids all night. 

I will leave you to enjoy the game with an open bar and enough booze for any type of game, playoff or otherwise.  Enjoy the game(s), 19, I’ll be doing my non-gamewrecker best to stay away.  For now.

Let’s Go Red Wings!!!!!

Let’s Go Tigers!!!!!

My fault.  I literally tune it for 3 seconds only to see the goal being shot and tipped.  I am the gamewrecker. 

Maybe I’ll watch the Tigers instead.  I don’t like watching baseball but seeing as they are losing the series maybe I can be the anti-gamewrecker for that series.  Or maybe I shouldn’t risk it…

Flipping over to the playoff game and I see the Tigers close out the inning.  I quickly hear baseball’s douche canoe announcing… Joe Buck.  Fuch Joe Buck.

Other than the Douche Canoe himself, the only thing worse than listening to Joe Buck call a game is listening to Joe Buck call a game with Troy Aikman.

Not familiar with Tim McCarver huh? I wish they’d have kept Terry Francona around. His work in the first 2 games of the ALCS was very good.

A little something to make some of us feel even older: last night marked the 27th anniversary of the Tigers’ most recent World Series win in ‘84.  Memories.  If only I could remember them all.

Oh.. I don’t know… having to listen to Brian Hayward and his brain dead co-hort is like nails on a blackboard combined with a crying baby.

Not familiar at all.  Am I mistaken about Joe Buck, or is he indeed calling the game?

Unless, they have formed an unholy alliance again…

Tim McCarver is so very very painful to listen to.  Preachy, know it all senile bastard.

Tim McCarver.  Makes nails on a chalk board sound awfully good by comparison.

Brilliant first out.

I must admit, not being a baseball fan, I am oblivious to the announcers of the sport. However, I am fully aware of how horrible Joe Buck is after hearing him slobber all over the Cowboys with Troy Aikman is almost as bad as the Douche Canoe slobbering over Rosby’s knob for an entire game.

VooX, you’re right, it is Buck. McCarver is the color guy. Buck is possibly the most monotone broadcaster i’ve ever heard. He doesn’t even get excited for walk-off home runs.

Tim McCarver is so very very painful to listen to.  Preachy, know it all senile bastard.

And often wrong.

How do so many national broadcasters keep their jobs when everyone hates them? At least Joe Morgan is gone.


Faux, completely blown coverage there

Not superstitious at all.  No faith at all, either, at least in the supernatural.

That being said, being afraid of becoming a gamewrecker is how we roll around here, and I have to respect that shite.
