Spokes In A Great Big Winged Wheel

I'm writing this at 0900 PST and the last thing George told me was that William Tell is in for the Strangler.  Note to Sobotka, reinforce the glass behind the nets...hell, ALL the glass.  A hail of rubber is headed your way.  

I've decided Justin Abdelkader is my huckleberry today.  I have a feeling, an inkling really.  Something tells me this young man is going to be a wrecking ball of a force tonite in front of hockey's greatest fan base, in hockey's greatest arena, with banners hanging down and fat men with red cheeks sputtering while aging Fins, balding assholes and a pansy named Perry get angrier and angrier.  

It's a big one.  A big fat one.  

Hope you enjoyed your Saturday, used your time wisely to prepare yourselves for what's to come.  Somewhere, Larry Murphy is incoherent.  Somewhere closer Darren Helm is wondering what he's done to baby Jesus.  I keep waiting for the game that he's just, without fanfare, announced as a starter.  Surprise me.  I dig it.  Fairy tales, I know.

It's a Live Blog, you bitches.  Grab your seats.  Unwrap the cheddar.  Hide the pets. Warn the neighbors.  Keep your whore mouths shut unless the situation is clearly deserving.  

LGRW. 15 to 12.

The game is on KDOC if you are in the SoCal blackout area. I think it is channel 56 OTA

only if they have figured out a way to attach a new thumb for Del Keiser within the next 5 minutes.

if not… *#$%@& technology.

Posted by PaulinMiamiBeach on 05/04/13 at 07:26 PM ET

If they can replace all of Lee Majors for 6 mil, we should be able to get Der Kaiser a new thumb for a couple thousand, right?

I’ve got 38 cents, who’s with me!?!?

Maybe later i the game I’ll try the feed in Windows MediaPlayer and see if it works there.

Hope you enjoyed your Saturday, used your time wisely to prepare yourselves for what’s to come. 

It’s a glorious 70 degree day here in the pacific northwest (we don’t get a lot of these), so there’s been grilling, and oh yes, there’s been drinking—there are wary-eyed pets in the neighborhood who know damn well by now that look in my eye that seems to be a rite of spring.

The Tigers just went up by 4 runs in the first inning and the feeling here is that the locals back in Detroit are going to blow the roof off the fucher.  The GaryAss-driven lockout, the shit-load of doubt that followed—it all kinda sucked didn’t it?  But it’s spring-time now bitches.  The sun is shining, I’m well on my way to drunker-than-a-loon and the Red Wings are in playoff mode.  It all feels so right and familiar.  Memories of #19 leading his team with that glint in his eye.  Memories of #5 steely-eyed and cooler than a hit-man.  Memories of #39 sprawling and making snow angels as his stick flies away.  Memories of #91, his awesome talent as well as everything that ever frustrated us about him.  And memories of the grind line, the long-dead rivalry with the dive, that heavenly night in 1997 and all the crazy highs and soul-crushing lows that come along with hockey at this time of year.

But make no mistake—this is our time of year!

LGRW!

Odds are it was one of two things… hot muffler pulled over tall grass (which does exist near the freeway shoulders) or someone flicked a butt from their car.  P.S.A. Smoke all you want.  Just don’t be a *#$%@& and use some common sense.

Thanks! Just trying to play Robin Hood - stealing from Gary and giving to the 19 - all the credit has to go to the Redditors that taught me the trick.
