Abel to Yzerman

Only 47 Left…Let’s Live Blog Most Of Them

Saturday night? That was the first Lang fight.  The Stallion showed a glimpse of push-back the first twenty seconds and then he was overwhelmed by the sheer, animal strength of the hungry challenger.  Don't forget. Clubber Lang lived alone, trained alone, ate alone, washed alone, raised pigeons alone and said horrible things to Adrian at an event that was supposed to be Rocky's Big Day.

And then he laid waste to Balboa.  Demoralized him.  

Unlike Rocky III, perhaps the greatest true story in modern boxing history, I have little hope of a miracle.

Holy hell.  It wasn't just a "fail to compete," or a lot of lost "puck battles".  There was no competition and there was no battle.  That Blues team is really good.  And our Wings team is really, really mediocre.  Slow. We looked plodding compared to Clubber Lang.  

I offer you no hope for 12. Not now.  Not after that.  Mickey's dead.  Adrian's lost faith.  All is lost.  

Appollo?  We need you.  And bring that fat drunk Paulie with you. 

It's a Live Blog.  With BJs.

If this was the Wings of yesteryear I’dsay it’s time for a Columbus fluke goal after dominating 15 minutes.

Notice how Quizzno’s pile of shit sub got knocked on his ass by Boll, then made a “valiant” effort to stop the run on James?

Useless taint.

Hey 42Jeff you got any pics of that ginger in the Wendy’s commercial?

Pro-tip: She’s not really a ginger.

Ask me how I know.

I googled her when I first saw those commercials because I’m a ginger, and her ginger locks seemed too good to be true.

In the years past the Wings make that outlet pass to the front of the net and it was always “no worries”. Now, the pucker factor is back…...clench 2, 3, 4…....

Makes sense I suppose, but I gotta admit I was halfway hoping for something totally incriminating or at least disgustingly lewd.

Pfffft, I’m about as tame as it gets—just ask Dougie.

At least the 1st period tonight was significantly less shitty than last game’s.

And during the intermission we’re forced to watch the AvP game; “No matter who wins, we lose.”

Getting Tootoo is the best move Kenny has made in a long time!
I really like this guy. 
He has a lot of heart,
He is full of fight, and he hits!

Milbury needs to let Tootoo get ahold of him for a minute.

What’s the opinion on Smitty so far?

I think he’s looking good aside from a couple two or three rookie-type mistakes.

Those who can’t play, coach.  Those who can’t coach… end up on NBC Sports.  Way to go Pee-aire and Milsdouche.

I didn’t think she was a real Red, but that didn’t matter to me, it was Rumbear who brought up the bush.

Smart going after a guy a foot taller than you…

Posted by mrfluffy from Long Beach on 01/21/13 at 07:48 PM ET

Damn right it is, it was the perfect way to start this game. I already like Tootoo 100x more than I did last year (which wouldn’t be to hard to do, but, still).

With Bert and Tootoo we can keep the flies off Brunner and Co. We’ve got a capable offense with a potential all-star first line, plus some grit to back it up. We just don’t have any D.

Did you guys know that? Our D is porous?

Smith is playing well.
He is looking at the ice, has quick hands and makes a great pass.
I think he learned a lot from Lidas.

Lashoff looks good, too.

He’s got potential, but he’s trying to do too much. He’s got all this hype behind him, and he’s believing it—he just needs to slow down and play the game to the team’s strength.

I still can’t believe he said that fighting off of a face off gives hockey a bad name.. Are you serious? I love hockey. Cause all you do is sit in the sin bin for 5 minutes and get back out and play.
