Streaking(!)

Here we go. You've seen it coming. Sensed it.  You've trusted the process and now, by god, now it's happening.

The Wings are streaking.

Launching themselves upward and onward. Where? Why...to mediocrity, of course. Because mediocrity is the goal in Tick Tock's world.

Little Bert was told to "get a place", according to fan girl, Helen St. James

"Get a place," is hockey parlance, lexicon, lingo for what used to be, "you're ripe".  Remember when the Wings permanent call ups were all ripe and seasoned?  

That was fun.

That made sense.

Now? Kenny lets 'em wither because it's the Wing Way. Not sure if it's whither or wither. 

Well, wheather it's whither, wither, or whether back there...the Wings have won when winning wasn't likely. I'm all out of W's.

So, they're streaking with some Floridians coming in next. Ottawa makes three after sobbing Syd left town, and that team is slumping.  Naturally, they'll pull out of it because they have a GM, where we have a potted plant.  But it was nice to see.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

“Get a place,” is hockey parlance, lexicon, lingo for what used to be, “you’re ripe”.

Too too funny!
And true.

So, it sounds like they’ve been talking for the past 15 minutes or so about Karlsson and his desire to possibly play elsewhere. What are the chances he gets moved at the deadline, and who signs him in the offseason?

Come to think of it my brother and wife will be celebrating their 49 th anniversary this summer.
He is usually up north on their anniversary helping his friend run his Corunna High School Cross Country team camp.  Will be interesting to see if he goes up and misses the 50th!

I reset the counter at 16 and haven’t started it again.
