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.

Los Angeles… uh…uh… I got nothin’.  Except fake boobs, ungodly traffic, plastic people and wildfires, mudslide3s and earthquakes.  However we do have weather that is unparalleled.

I like Lashoff finding an open space to make himself available for an open pass. Hockey sense, 19.

Added Rorschach and restored Chief’s link.  Some changes must have happened with the web site to break so many links to the icons.

Da Fuch is going on here. *Paging the Wings* Second period has started.

Dats has to do the work of left wing, right wing, center, and defense on his shifts.  He needs better line mates.

I don’t blame Ashton though. Hooked up with Demi. Learned some awesomeness in the bed from her. And now he’s about to rock that woman’s world. Awe Yeah.

Damn, E52.  What a play to separate the man from the puck on a rush.  Beauty, you big bastard.

I knew we should have gotten 6 more goals in the first period.

Wings appear to have found something tonight that has been lacking in their play… confidence.

Too much dump and chase and not enough offensive zone pressure.  Much different than the first.
