Remembering the Joe With Osrt and Jules

We're going to get into this more tomorrow.  But, I've got to tell you, the best night I ever spent at Joe Louis Arena was with one of you, one of the 19.

Two straight goals from Sammy and Osrt is pretending he’s Robert DeNiro in Cape Fear.  He’s talking but I can’t understand a word he says, and it has nothing to do with the volume at the Joe.  Two goals in a Stanley Cup Final game from the Enigma Jr., William Tell, our whipping boy…and it’s just too much.  Osrt’s lost it completely.  He’s turned a napkin into a paper football and he’s asking Pen fans to hold their index fingers up so he can kick an extra point.

That's just a taste. More tomorrow. That was Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final in 2008. I went to Detroit with two tickets. One of my friends had to back out. I posted on A2Y that I had an extra and Osrt responded in less than a minute. The rest was history that we'll recap tomorrow. I'm not even going to link to that recap. Tomorrow. On the Joe's Final Day. 

It's a Live Blog, you bitches and the Wings have this one at Bet365, no ptoblem at all.

LGRW.

It’s hard to believe I’ve been hanging around here for almost 10 years. All good, because of the company I keep.

Here’s to 19 of the finest Detroit Red Wings Fans that have ever lived and died with our Team.

Here’s to Gramps. We miss you still.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

realize we may be watching the last two games for DDK. If Detroit protects XO, Jensen, and Green, DDK could go to LV.

Evenin’ Bitches!
So many great times associated with the Joe and The 19.

Karen is trying to hide that gray but she’s still a bitchin’ babe and can knock out two national anthems as well as anyone.  Good luck tomorrow, Karen, and opening the LCA.

didn’t realize until about a week ago that there could be a market for incentivizing Vegas as to which exposed player they take.

Some reason I decided to select the CBC broadcast not FSD and Bob Cole is doing a great job representing the Wings and JLA history.

So, “oops, I didn’t mean to run over the goalie so it’s not interference, right?”  Still trying to figure that play out.

I wouldn’t miss the last couple at the Joe, CN. Life and the move to the Eastern Conference have diminished my LB participation, but I’ll always be a 19.

Here’s to the Joe, we hardly knew ye. Cheer Redolent Reprobates!
