Ok. We’ve Waited Long Enough: Ready, Set, Vomit

If there was some way I could blame dainty Gary Bettman for this, I would. You know I would.  But, and it disgusts me to say this, I can’t.  The midget troll commissioner is not responsible for this, courtesy of Okie.

Injury Report:

DET:
Todd Bertuzzi (RW/LW) Groin (Day to day)
Nicklas Lidstrom (D) Ankle injury (Day to day)
Pavel Datsyuk (C/LW) Arthroscopic knee surgery (Sidelined indefinitely)
Jonathan Ericsson (D) Broken left wrist (Sidelined indefinitely)
Patrick Eaves (RW) Jaw injury (Injured reserve)
Jimmy Howard (G) Groin (Day to day)
Jakub Kindl (D) Upper body injury (Day to day)

And you can add Home Keys into the mix.  His tummy hurts. Up comes another Swede.

But that’s not all. Oh no. Look at that list and you see a bunch of names that, baby Jesus willing, should all be healthy for the Worst Time of the Year.  Except for Eaves. That kid’s probably down for the foreseeable count.

So that’s nice, you say. I agree. It’s nice. But it could also be tragic.  It could be downright disgusting because our pals can’t win on the road. Period.

As it stands now the Wings are the 4 seed, four points behind the irritating Bitter Bitch Bound to Burst Blues.  That number 1 seed we pined over two weeks ago is looking less and less likely.  Right now the Wings would open with Bubba, with home ice.  But if you go back to that sick list of dinged Wings? Then you see the real issue: any kind of home ice at all.  Today, the Wings are not only 4 behind SL, but just 4 ahead of Nashville.  This team doesn’t win without Datsyuk and that’s a fact. Nice that he’s skating and smiling.  We like that. But this team is no better than a 4 seed unless he’s back and back really frigging soon. And a 5 seed means ugly, ugly moods all around come April.

When we’re up, we’re up. But when we’re down? We are down and surly and bitchy. We’re a bunch of 19 year old chicks all living in the same house, going through that thing, you know what I mean, at the same time.  And right now, it’s just not a good time to be around any of us.

So we might as well PMS together and Live Blog this bitch.

It’s going to be a monsteration tonight, Chief.  Replied to your comment on Malik’s about the Finn we didn’t trade.  Too long to repost here, Raspberry.

Onto more urgent matters, what are you bitches drinking?

I have just finished watching the first season of Top Shot, a firearms reality show.  In honour of the show’s bang-bang good times, before tonight’s game I am going to put a couple of shots down the domestic range.  That’s sharpshooter talk for sex with the little lady, for all you PETA-types.

See you bitches in 2 minutes.

I don’t know. If SCP started today, who would bitch about these seeds:


1   St. Louis
2   Vancouver
3   Dallas
4   Detroit
5   Nashville  
6   Chicago  
7   Phoenix
8   San Jose

Think about two rounds within our division.

Tops shot rocks based off the challenges, weaponry and photography….. but as with any ‘reality’ show its too heavily scripted.
Suck it up and lets roll bitches. We can make excuses or we can earn 2 points.
I’ll take the points thanks. And VooX….. beer me.

I’ve been vomiting for a few days now.  Not happy with the loss of the number one seed and the injuries just make me sad.

I just programmed my DVR…I’ll catch up on it tonight.  Hopefully it will be a good thing.

Voox - vodka straight up, please. 

Let’s go Red Wings!!!

Photography and challenges are what compel me to watch the show.  Can’t stand the bitchiness and politics of any reality show, in general, but I do love Chopped all-around.

A bartender has to know his limitations.

I can have sex for 10 minutes.  Of course, that’s over the course of 8-10 sessions.

If you can’t get the game on TV or a stream online, you can at least listen to WXYT online. WXYT is now a super-conservative talk radio station, but here is their online listen link as they are broadcasting the game, not 97.1.

Damn I’m not sure how you know these things about us Chief, but you’re not the only one to notice. When I walked out the door this morning to warm up my truck, the dog across the street saw me, immediately put his tail between his legs, let loose an insane sort of gutteral half howl, half whimper and scurried away.

Silly dog doesn’t obviously doesn’t realize the playoffs are still about five weeks away.

LGRW.
