Roll The Dice…One More Time

South Detroit doesn't exist.  Many richards have told us that many times.  Something about geography and bottled water. I don't know the precise equation, having dropped out of Northern before I could attain my prestigious associate's degree in advanced Pharmacy.

Physically, it's a myth.

But spiritually, in a place where we live that is not real life, it's everything.  It's less than a minute to go and it's a Wing lead in a game that means way too much to way too many.

Steve Perry has been replaced by a young Filipino who sounds exactly like his predecessor. It's weird.  But it doesn't matter. It could be Al Sobotka singing it. It just doesn't matter. It's the timing.  That's everything.

I need to hear that song.  Tonite. 

Two weeks ago we were at some middle school function. There was a band. They were not very good, but don't tell them I said that.  They were playing a song with flutes and recorders and silly drums.  Somebody had a trumpet.  I recognized the tune but I couldn't place it.  My wife, who knows every Wing score before I watch the game on DVR but somehow doesn't give away the result and do you have any idea how hard that would be? She nudged me and said, "that's got to be an omen."

It was that song.  I know. Like I've said...it's cheesy.  But holy hell if it isn't the greatest thing ever because when we hear it, you know the end is nigh.

We need to hear that song. Tonite.

It's a Live Blog, bitches. For all that's good in this world, baby Jesus.  You adorable, drooling, swaddled and innocent little bundle of Helm.  Do it. Give us this game. We'll be good. I promise.

1 to the WCF.  5 to the Burning.  9 to 12.

“Edzo suck my balls you stinking pile of douche residue”

I’d love to hear Doc explain to the viewers at home what the Detroit crowd was chanting.

Alright, while we got intermission time:

Thank you to every who serves or has served.  It’s because of you we can grill out in 52F rainy weather, and then come in and yell at the TV at Olczyk while screaming profanities at the refs.  And that we can have puppies and fire trucks and hookers.

Thank you.

Don’t see Chief around, but I’ll field it and I’m sure he has the same sentiment.

Limited postings due to my scholar athlete taking my laptop to study Calculus….and teh wife tells me he is at a BBQ. I texted him he is adopted….

BS call on that penalty.  Cawks have figured out how to score….jamm the blue paint dislodge the net and send it to Toronto.  GOAL!  Everytime…

Wings skating well.  Good pressure. 

At one point they flashed the bench and I swear you could see a little bald headed guy on his knees. High def catches everything.

40 minute game…


LGRW !!!!!

Someone really needs to bring back up that Toews once wrapped his car around a support beam, and that there was never an explanation of any kind given, and it was just all swept under the rug.

The next three goals are going to be huge. IMO the first one to three wins.

No kidding. I can wait another minute or so if the announcers don’t make the logic center of my brain scream in agony. Bob’s getting ready for pasture, though. He’s sounding like a late career Pat Summerall.

Still, even Summerall’s corpse > Edzo

so I guess that whole thing in the rulebook about “if the player makes himself vulnerable at the moment of the hit it’s not a penalty” doesn’t count if it’s a Wing throwing the hit.

Figures… Mule finally hits someone… and gets a penalty for it.
