Mule, My Friend…It’s Time To Dream Like A Young Man

Okie...this morning.

The Flames defense is horrible, 3.38 GA/G, 0.68 5-5 F/A;  both marks second worst in the league.

Win or go home.

I had a boss a long time ago that had a nifty ditty he'd pull out only when the time was exactly right.  Most times he was sarcastic, demanding, unrelenting.  We all saw that and most of us dug it.  There were occasions, though, when that temper would flare and the highlight reel would start spinning.  One day, I witnessed him look up from his desk, slowly.  He paused for a minute and let that gaze burn into this kid standing in front of him.  And then he said, "You're lying to me.  That's irritating.  You want to play fuch-fuch with me?

Good. Let's play fuch-fuch."

And then the destruction began.  And it was a thing to behold.

It's time for the Wings to play a little fuch-fuch.  Teams like Calgary cannot be led along like the 1am sloth, soiled and barely coherent, waiting for a Blues fan to wheel her home...whore style.

Teams like Calgary must be efficiently and mercilessly dispatched of.  

Johan Franzen claims he's "pissed."  We've seen pissed before, Mule. We saw it against this very team.

 

 

Horrific.  Pierre was beside himself. Bobby Lang was so mad he forgot to check his hair in the glass.  Nick Lidstrom's pulse accelerated to 21 beats per minute. And the Mule?

He was pissed.  

Remember? (scroll to 2:14 mark)

 

 

That's pissed.  

You want to prove your pissed, Johan?  Show us that move again. Move your big ass across the slot and fire away. Holy Hell...when's the last time we saw that move?  

Get mad, big boy.  

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  6 to 16 and then on to 12.  Just. Get. In.

Just love watching a puck go to the boards and a guy twice a far away as Cleary beats him there…...every…...time.

There ought to be a delay of game penalty when a team ices repeatedly.

This game, with all the right out front rebounds, really makes me miss Homer.

Ok…now I want to take a dump on the whole team but…

Howard has never been given enough flak for his puck handling. It’s bad.

Wings are 0-3 on the PP with only one lousy SOG.

And they’re proving themselves right.

3-1 Lames.

This playoff year is gone.

I hope Howard absolutely *#$%@& reams his teammates after this game.

in fact, I wish he’d just skate off the ice, not look at a single one of them, and go take a shower.  they’ve stopped playing, why shouldn’t he?

Well, I guess you proved your point, Jimmy.

May have cost your team the season, but you proved your point.

I’m envious of you Tigers fans. I generally don’t give a shit about sports, with the exception of hockey.

This is abysmal.

Lame.  Just a lame, lame, lame effort all around.

Howard gave up. Simple as that.

Looking at that goal a few more times, I blame the skaters more than Howard. Mostly the guy who stayed on the ice but decided to just stare at Howard.

Howard: “You *#$%@& it all up for a whole season, I’m here for you. I make a mistake, you just stand there?”

Yep.

Yeah, it was a sh*tty change, but Howard decided he wanted to be a baby, so he half-assed it.

Incredibly disappointing, especially for a guy I’ve been defending around here all week.

Man, the Wings need to get back to the fundamentals at the September training camp.  Passes look retarded.  The decisions to shoot the puck look retarded.

And there’s a fuching goal by Horse’s Ass.

I absolutely HATE when arenas play this shitty Van Hagar song (right now) at high pressure moments.

Cleary would turn the puck over if there were no defenders on the ice.

Score one and have Ted Lindsay kick Jimmah in the nuts. That is not the Red Wing way James.

Oh goody.  A 6-on-4 with less than 30 seconds left in the game.
