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Steve Perry has been replaced by a young Filipino who sounds exactly like his predecessor.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.

The Cawks know they get at least 5 punches to the head after the whistle. The Wings tap someone at it’s to the box. Freakin’ joke.

This game is a good example of why the same refs should be assigned to every game in a series.  Two penalties result in goals on plays that wouldn’t have been penalized in games 1-5… then enter Dan O’Halloran and the refs job one for the Hawks.

Look, when you know it you against the world you need to set up the next game. Somebody on the Wings needs to grow some balls.  I don’t care who. Suck it up ...make some history…..or bend over and take this crap…

It’s going to be hard to respect a manufactured series winner who goes down like a fifty-cent harlot and whose captain needs to run away and hide in a game 6.

Why hasn’t E delivered one of those spaghetti legs hit to Prickell again? They had the foot on the gas until the beginning of the 3rd. Disappointing to say the least. And now i have to go into work hungover and prepping for a game 7? FML
