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.

Franzen didn’t trip Dats there, Dats was cross-checked (rather blantantly) right in front of the ref.

After this game, Babcock HAS to break up the top line. There isn’t another “top-6” line after that.

Top line?  I honestly can’t say we have one of those right now.  We appear to have four fourth lines at the moment.

That was a gift.  Refs ignored an egregious crosscheck by Quincey right in front of Howard.

Yeah, lots of incompetence on the ice tonight.  The lockout was a far superior product to this.

My wife:  “I saw that fist to the face there.  And no way Franzen said anything to deserve it, he’s my innocent little angel.”

I worry about her sometimes.
