The F Stands For Finger And The Finger Could Really ______ Us All

Thanks to the Emperor for covering me the last few LBs, and thanks to all 19 of you for the patience. January was a slow-moving month on America’s Favorite Carrier and I already told you what February has in store for the weak-hearted Wing fan. I warned you. I told you what kind of pain was on the horizon.

And now it’s here.  Jimmy says it could be two games but then I read it might be 4 weeks until Jimmy said it was more like two weeks he’s hoping because six weeks sucks the worst kind of ass. Seriously. We’re all dead in six weeks if that’s how long Tiberius Howard is out.  Oh, and you want to trade for a backup goalie?

Don’t bother because whoever we get isn’t gonna be good enough to do the job we need done to get what belongs to us.  Baby Jesus, that tiny tadpole of love, adores us but even he can’t guarantee or even decree a Cup if we’re down to a backup goalie some shitbag team was willing to deal in February.  So…it’s James F. Howard or bust, and I’d prefer me some Jimmy if it’s all the same to you.

Transplants. Transplants galore in Gary’s hometown of Phoenix. They’re running amok, paying outrageous sums, drinking cheap beer and laying waste to the women of Glendale, if they’re single and clean…the transplants, that is.

It’s a Live Blog bitches.

I thought they had better jump than we did. I don’t think we came out with as much energy. It may take us a few periods to get going.

Fixed.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

When I watch our team play like this, and then I look at the standings, I am confused.

Worth the effort but I doubt it will help.  They’ve been looking for the Wings PP for a long time now.  No luck.

He looked a weak on the Coyote’s break away goal, but hey, if his defense didn’t leave him out to dry…... you know the story.

Oh I agree, but you gotta admit that Gordon froze him when an active stick would have ended the chance.

Has E52 shown any redeeming qualities lately?  Sorry for the interrogation, bitches, it’s been a while since I’ve seen a game.

Honestly I think he is starting to turn the corner.  He is a lot less noticeable lately, which in his case is a good thing.
