Trust In The Yzerplan

The Wings will have their work cut out for them this weekend. Tonight’s game against the Hawks is not going to be an easy one. They’re hungry and angry.

We're only four games in, but, this Wings team is starting to look better, and, are playing with more confidence. They will have a couple more players out because of Covid protocol. That's just the way this season will go on.

We’ll just have to hang in there, trust in the Yzerplan, keep our fingers crossed, and, hope the guys are for real. 

It’s a Live Blog!

Howdy Katie. I’m not all that concerned aboot wins and losses this season. I want two things as a fan. I want to see overall improvement from the team and I want to be entertained. Last year was painful to watch.

Darren Dreger of TSN reporting tonight is a deal is moving forward for Dubois.  Some teams have been told they are out of it and he believes the Jets are still in it along with few teams.

Sort of like Ernie Harwell in his early days “recreating” games from reports off the teletype machine…..

Ahoy! as Chief may say, so I’ll go along.

Other topic, I was just reading that SpaceX now has over 1,000 500 lb Starlink satellites in low earth orbit.  They have auto collison avoidance radar and mini propulsion systems to maneuver away from other space objects.  Very creative, and scary.

I also would just like to see the Wings improve in game play although won’t be upset when/if they miss the playoffs.  Being so bad compared to the rest of the league last year was a real downer.  They seem to have some offensive problems still but we’ll see. 

Thanks for the blog again Kate, nice to see everybody again.

Alright, it’s online game night, so Ken and Mick get muted and I get to half pay attention to friends I’m kinda sorta playing Jackbox games with.  At least I’m already into my second margarita.

Cheers all.  LGRW!

I would sometimes get a ‘dirty’ gray streak against a hockey background on a previous tv, but I replaced it under warranty and got a new tv and this one, a different model, doesn’t have the gray streaks the other one often did.  Nice picture work with the arrows also lol.
