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.

Dats is pissed.  He’s going to come out of the box and score a hatty.

So I assume the Wings’ are going to get their 5 on 3 chance at some point?  LOL

Well that was inevitable.  8 minutes to ensure 1 or 2 points.  Everyone is so close in standings any win in regulation time is huge.

With Walkdum officiating this game?  Not likely.

what a dumb rule which caused Dats penalty.  as long as a defensive player does not close hand on puck; moving the puck should be legal.

Couldn’t make up my mind if I wanted OJ or bourbon, so I’m drinking both.  Not a great combination.

And of course that’s a perfectly clean, legal hit with the puck on the other side of the fuching ice.

Draper used to win a lot of draws that way and he never got called for it.

I try to stay calm and objective. But holy buckets what is going on out there? What is that 5 no calls in the last 5 minutes?  I could have picked three penalties on the smith play.

Knock Smith down 30 feet from the puck, no interference of course.

Smith looks to be gone another 2 weeks.

Well I didn’t know this was a strategy but hell it makes sense. Knock out the other teams defensemen then it’s easy to score.
