Today We Settle All Family Business

When this fire is finally done, and there's nothing but embers left and the Wings have pissed all over the ashes of the West once and for good?  It will have been the perfect way to leave this idiotic, Bettman-created sewer of a conference.  

Nashville? Eliminated from playoff contention, largely because the Wings turned it up with two weeks left.  Nice knowing you Bubba.

St. Louis? A great joke. So much promise, yet nothing to show for it.  Now resigned to sit and watch the two teams they despise the most. Again. 

Columbus? Again, another nice little team that almost got there but petered out when the Wings ratcheted up the heat.

Anaheim...a former nemesis, but now just an overrated afterthought.  Nice knowing you, Corey.

Chicago...oh, what a way to leave.  More on that in a minute.  But, if it happens, the sweetest road East would be through San Jose.  The Wings owe them and this is just the year to do it.

Chicago's loading up their top line: Kane, Sharpe, Toes.  That's the best Quenneville can do. He's tried everything else. It's his last ditch bit of genius.  Unfortunately for him, the real genius has better hair and he hunts big game. By himself. With one bullet.

3 games to do this, but you know it needs to end tonite.  You can't take it and I know for a fact I absolutely can't.  

LGRW.  Settle this. It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

Bounces will start ‘going their way’ after a few rounds of 18, I’m sure.  Whore-style.

That’s the damn truth, if it has ever been spoken. Let’s just be done with it tonight, so I won’t be scowling at my grill all weekend.

You said it, Chief.  Do it tonight.

Awesome image by SoDakWingNut.

No LB for me again tonight.  I’ve stayed away from the last three and the Wings won.  So… No Jink.

I am wearing my James Mother Fuching Tiberius Howard t-shirt, which I have worn for the last three games, hoping it’s a good puck luck charm.

Wings just need to bear down, focus every minute of every shift, and hope Toes just loses it completely.  I’ll be watching with the sound muted again - the only way to watch the NBC crew.

Burn.This.Conference.Down.

LET’S GO RED WINGS !!!!!

Sherman was a sorry excuse for a human being. Babcock is just the opposite. Big difference.

Sorry to get my “Southern” up, but that’ll do it every time tongue wink

LGRW. Settle this. It’s a Live Blog, bitches.

It’s Game 5 and the Wings should expect nothing but the full on goon squad douchebaggery that is Quinnville. That will not be enough. Not tonite.

Our Detroit Red Wings will…..Be prepared. Be determined. Be closers.

Burn it the fuch down!

Let’s Roll.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

God….just came back from the office. The board shows the odds of the Wings winning tonight….. 2 VS 17 !!!! Only 2 of us voted for the Wings….I was laughed at all day. Heard terrible things….how the Hawks will bounce back….how “lucky” we were and how the Hawks will slap us silly 6-0…... :(


I want them ALL to pay dearly….. I want to prove them wrong…..I want to go back to work and show them…..

Please Wings…..this one will be THE most difficult game…...just WIN…...if we win this, I am convinced we can win the cup (some will call me crazy, but I truly believe it)

I’ll be late to the LB for gametime, if at all.  When recital ends we’re all going out to eat.  But I’ll be watching, oohhhhh I’ll be watching.

More of the same please, more of the same.

I am taking the kid to watch this game with the Chicago side of the family tonight. He’s wearing his lucky sweater and - Zata willing - we will do our best to get them a few noise complaints from the neighbors.

Burn it down, B*tches.

Skate to the throat Bitches. 

This one is for Q. Give it up.  Babcock has your number.  Soon to be 0-6 in playoffs vs. Wings. 9 to 12,  and 5 to Rosby.

I’m not feeling the General Sherman comparison in regard to Babcock. My personal opinion is that he has been channeling ancient Chinese general and strategist Sun Tzu who pretty much wrote the manual on battle, The Art of War.

“Should the enemy strengthen his van, he will weaken his rear; should he strengthen his rear, he will weaken his van; should he strengthen his left, he will weaken his right; should he strengthen his right, he will weaken his left. If he sends reinforcements everywhere, he will everywhere be weak.”


My favorite quote:  “If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.”

Michael. (Babcock)  Do you renounce satin? (The western conference)
Yes.
Organ music commence.
End er tonite Wings.

I give my most respect to all who have lost a family member or friend while serving this country. That’s what this weekend is all about. It allows us to enjoy everything and anything.

Got the spring yardwork done on a glorious nonhumid day thanks to a cool front from our friends to the north. Even had time to wash a bunch of very stinky hockey gear that my teammates will appreciate. Half way through a LaGloria Cubana cigar and a Shiner bock beer. 30 more minutes bitches.

Three fingers of rum on the rocks with a lime, por favor

Watching the Rangers game.  They show an intro of our game and it has Kane scoring a goal….like that has happened a lot.

I’m drinking Victory Prima Pils. Made in PA so I’m not sure if you guys get Victory, but it’s delicious. Drank it the past 3 wins, so I had to buy some more for tonight.
