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.

I think its due to javascript not being enabled. Mine is off in chrome. Too much hackey crap going around with java lately to keep it on. Just a safety precaution

Posted by NIVO from underpants gnome village on 02/27/13 at 09:32 PM ET

FYI NIVO, javascript is a completely different technology than java.  Disabling it will only cause you problems.  You need to either uninstall java completely, or disable the browser plugin.  You don’t need to mess with javascript.

Worked like a champ for me.  It then disables the buttons and such and the feed just posted didn’t work..but up in the adress bar you’ll see a scroll with an x in it and you can then click that to enable javascript for the specific website.

Jeff,
Maybe I wasn’t clear.  NIVO is talking about the security issues that Java has been having lately, and disabled javascript to stop the problems.  However, javascript and Java aren’t related, so disabling javascript didn’t fix his security concerns, but just potentially makes sites not work.

I’m going to punch something in the throat if I hear the Eric Cartman ‘Let’s Go Kings’ chat tonight…
You’d think in a town of all that creativity they could move past the 1990’s.

How is his voice? I would love to see him again, but not if it tarnishes the memories of seeing him at Cobo.

Posted by CaptainDennisPolonich from Warm and sunny SoCal on 02/27/13 at 09:21 PM ET

Just downloaded a Seger concert from Cobo in 1980 today.  Let me know and I’ll send you a copy.
By the by there is a great website called Wolfgang’s Vault that has hundreds of soundboard concerts from Bill Graham in the 60’s thru the 70’s.
