The Mule Stood There Bright As The Sun On That California Coast

Bob Seger and his Silver Bullet Band are touring our nation.  I've not yet seen a confirmed San Diego date.  I will go scorched frigging earth if he hits the west coast, does Portland, NoCal and skips my transplanted home city. 

Uncle Mike Babcock doesn't care. He doesn't care about Bullet Bob and he doesn't care about the calorie count in a Charleston Chew.  He just doesn't. He doesn't care about hurting your feelings and he's not impressed by your roomate's cousin in St. Louis who keeps forwarding him pictures of the tattoo he has on his chest of Erik Estrada.

And Uncle Mike doesn't care if he's hurting Ian White's feelings. All our Uncle wants is a win, and then about 20 more.  Then 16 after that.

So he's gonna sit a vet and then he and Kenny might trade one plus a kid or two. 

Uncle Mike will spring for a Fresca and he'll tell Ansar how cool it was to watch you win a game of Boggle on the plane.  But when it comes right down to it, he just wants to win and I'm pretty good with that.

I think something's brewing on that there horizon. 

And Uncle Mike doesn't give two shits who it is that gets dealt if it means #12 becomes more of a possibility.  No, I don't mean 13 or 40 so just stop.  I mean a 51 or a 4, but never a 43. Ever.  I don't even remember what number Quichedouchebag wears, because I shield my eyes instead of looking at him...but if we can trade him...YEP.

With every game this team wins without a healthy complement, Tick Tock is getting itchier.  I know he's done exactly jack squat to make Detroy-et better but tonite he should be reminded that anyone can win in this league built by a parody-driven midget.  Anyone. Even the Kings.  Win, win, win...deal. Win, win, win...deal.  Next thing you know Uncle Mike's got himself a contender.

We headed west because we felt that a change would do us good.  Good for the soul, you know.  Well, now it's time for a Live Blog, bitches.

Drew Remenda = dildo with ears

You’re implying that perhaps he’s not completely useless then.

Lucky break on that icing call.  Could have been a penalty.

Did…did you see what Miller just did?  He lifted the stick up of a Kings player just so Tootoo can continue the cycle on the forecheck.  Gorgeous play by Miller.

All this puck possession and time in zone reminds me of kick-ass Wings teams of old.

We’d done everything but score, so I’ll take the bounce!

You maybe can find a 97.1 audio stream.

I do love the forechecking but I hate it when we get a little too dump and chasey. And we’ve been a little too dump and chasey so far this game.

Dude, many of The 19 enjoyed seeing where everyone in this worldwide phenomena called A2Y live as we live blog 110 games a year.

But I always ask before putting someone on The Map…. Usually.

I’m not actually attacking your map. It’s more like a combination of jealously and a desire to *#$%@& with shit that I can’t resist. Total respect for your hard work.

Jesucristo what an opening west coast period, would like to have scored six more goals dominating most of that period.  Kings hardly had a scring chance.

I second the much improved play of Kronner the past couple of games. Keep it up.

And what happened to Rorschach?  Go back to bed?

8 hour time difference puts him in the Moscow Time Zone, I lived in that zone for 2 years in Kuwait.

I think it’s more of a protection/keep the flys off thing. Gator won’t let anyone mess with Pavs.

Mila Kunis is Russian, or Ukranian.  I can’t believe she’s hooking up with Ashton Kutcher now, ten years after they were a couple on That Seventy’s Show.
