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#$%&@*!

We love a city that’s been dead for nearly 20 years now?

If you tell me you cheer for the Lions as well, I can tell you why.

Posted by RedMenace from Team Slovaskimo Fighting Snipers on 10/17/13 at 11:12 PM ET

I swore off the Lions the day they hired Matt Millen.  Never looked back.  Will not even consider following them in any way until the Fords sell the team.

As far as I’m concerned Detroit would be a better sports place if both the Lions and Pistons left town.

I want a Mule hat trick tonight !! 

Posted by Gary Bettman SUCK from Fort Myers, Florida on 10/17/13 at 11:14 PM ET

I would love that.  First hat trick for me in Michigan. 

I tried that in North Dakota and the gal actually had to go get a manager.

I confused the hell out of him and got my curly fries anyway.  smile

It’s games like this that make me hate Mule more.  You see what he’s capable of and have to wonder where this effort was in all the other games.

See, it’s funny - Wah will get all up in the grille of a guy like Boudreau because he knows he’s not really a threat…

... Babcock, on the other hand…

“Oh, what’s that, Patty?”

He’s only willing to throw punches with women and Boudreau.  The death stare—he don’t fuch with that shit.

Now… Datsyuk came in the zone there and put up a weak sort of “Zetterberg shot” on goal…..but the difference is he WENT AND GOT HIS REBOUND and kept it alive.  He could do that because he wasn’t at center ice when he took it.

I wish Z would learn this.

I’ll give Ozzie a bit more time.  It’s a hard job.

If over time he struggle like Murphy still always used to, even after years, then well…

Great win tonight.  Shots fired across the bow in a lot different ways:  to the Avs, to the East… and to the West that the more things change the more they stay the same.

Kronwall going down is my worst nightmare for this team though.  And I am petrified of what it means beyond this game.

And now I can go into tomorrow happy.

I’m 75% intoxicated, my laptop is actually working again, and the Wings punched Patty Wah in his stupid face.

A good night in my book.
