The Monster Goes For Three In A Row

Paul here in relief again for Bill who must have received the get back to work memo sometime today.

Speaking of relief, The Monster is a great name for a baseball closer.  You never know, the Tigers may need him tonight.

 

 


Uh, no.

Hey, it is really Rivalry Night tonight and Wings/Avs once was the greatest of them all, lately, nada.

A lot of talk about Roy today, wonder how Babcock will match-up with the rookie coach?

Avs defense is their weak point, Wings must force the issue in the offensive zone.  On the other side, the boys in Denver can skate and get a bit creative on offense, so the Wings can't let up against them.

Let's kick this one off with a live blog b#$%&@*!

The announcermanperson, he of vast intellect and verbiage says…“The second period WHAT?”

If you have a day job…keep it.

Working in the television industry and having seen “Anchorman” at least a dozen times, I can say, unequivocally, that TV personalities aren’t necessarily the sharpest bricks in the deck.

Looked like a totally different team from 1st to 2nd period.  Too many players trying for the perfect pass and setup and almost no one playing hard on the puck.  Lucky to escape only giving up the 2 and still being tied.

I bow to your expertise. wink 

Help me out here. Now, I admit that I do not follow baseball, yet I see this Prince Fielder chap wearing a glove and swinging a bat, albeit occasionally, so I ponder, why does he “play” baseball? He strikes me more as a Nintendo or PS3 sort….

Only 17 shots on goal through two periods against a team giving up over 35 a game is not good.

He used to have alot of power (before the Tigers signed him) and he was brought in to make guys have to pitch to Miguel Cabrera instead of walking him all the time.  Though now all Prince is good for is inning ending ground balls to the second baseman.

Good news everyone!  I was watching when they had a 2-0 lead then had to stop for a bit.

So I’m sure it’ll be fine now because that’s how it works, right?

I’m in the same basket regarding baseball.. albeit, the one without the dicks. More like the one headed to hell.

Though, in my defense, I do wear a Tigers hat almost every day.

It has.  Spent the summer getting reaquainted with family, working on the house and letting my hair grow.  smile

Finally had to get a haircut.  Got sick of family just in time for hunting season to start.

Honey dos almost done just in time for Wings season to start up.

And the only thing I really miss about the USAF is the fellas.

If the Wings lose this game, I swear on my grandmother’s Detroit-based grave, that I’ll never post a John Denver video again.
