Uh Oh…Hitch Is In Town And He’s Hungry

Oh for god's sake. This is too much.  Game after game, the hill gets steeper.  I'm serious this time. There is no way we're winnigng this one.  And there's no way I can even spell winning. The little streak was nice, but it ends tonite at the Joe.

Just as he was getting so very warm, like urine, Johan Franzen is hurt with a hip flexor.  We have no idea when Darren Helm will be back, or our precious serial killer. 

The bitter little baby brother Blues are angry. So very angry.

Nick Lidstrom will be there tonite, but he'll be in some slick-ass suit. 

Us?

We'll have nothing but blue balls.  Nick's there, but he's not giving it up. You know what I mean.

Oh and then there's this...Desperate Ken Hitchcock, starving and foaming, is starting a rookie. Some kid named Jake Allen.

He'll play the game of his life then we'll never hear from him again.

Injuries. Providence. Swedish Teases.

Wings win 4-2.  Goals from Home Keys, Zetterman, Wally and Datsyuk.

I'm at sea. I'll try and watch. If not?

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Ahoy Captain D.  Just a short one and maybe the last for a while because Little Gary and congress won’t let me sail as much as I’d like.

Uncle Mike in the Yahoo article

“We can win if we’re organized and we look after the details and we compete our butt off,” Babcock said. “If we don’t do those three things, we have no chance.”

He might have added - - if they can kill a penalty or two.

This bit is priceless Babcock:

He [Datsyuk] took a nasty hit from the Los Angeles Kings’ Drew Doughty, losing his helmet in the offensive end, but he popped right back up and raced back the length of the ice. He scored a gorgeous goal on his next shift, and then he got even more revenge. . . .  But he went after Doughty later.

“He just missed his head by about this much, too,” Babcock said. “He was going huntin’. He’s competitive – nothing wrong with that – whereas you’ve got other guys who get abused and then say, ‘Please, can I have another,’ instead of going huntin’.”

hah, those drones are gonna put you out of business Houligan.

Hope you’re spreading the Winged Wheel across the world.

I’m hoping for a good game but we’ll see, we do have a knack for making rookies look good.  Ben Eager snuck in and wristed one of the post against the Oil.  Ben Eager.

So it could def go either way.  Here’s hoping the bottom 6 brings it tonight.  Looking for 2 goals from our 3rd and 4th.  I think our centers bring it home and Andersson and Emmerton dent the scoreboard.  Look for the D to contribute too.  We’ll get at least 1 goal out of them.

Quincey doesn’t make a single turnover.. alright, little too far.

You know Babs LOVES Doughty, especially after the Olympics, so he’s not gonna say anything bad about him but I’m glad he called it out for what it was.

Would still like to see more Wings play the body though.  Pavel shouldn’t be looking to get Doughty back though.  Plenty of other guys who could’ve looked after it.

Weirdness abounds.  The BBB"s were the talk of the town. A true rivalry was a brewing they said. Now they are sitting in the 9th spot and sinking faster than a jelly doughnut at Hitchcocks house. Meanwhile, 13 games in to the season and Lil Bro seems to have won 25 of them.  WTF….no losses??  Jeebus on a pogo stick.

Can you imagine how awesome it will be to see Nick get a standing O when the scoreboard video shows him?

Can you imagine NBCSN showing even a second of it?

Me neither.

Signing in early for this one bitches. Only the second full game I’ve been able to watch this season. Which is like sacrilege for me. Rockin the mojo and ready for a sloppy, nasty, bitter hate *#$%@& of a game. L.G.R.W.

Retired Captain = A Suit - oh the indignity!  Can we give him a jersey and substitute him in the game and no one be the wiser? Probably no, oh well!

I do enjoy doc. The greatest play every play that’s made. Good stuff. Douche Canoe And Windy Patch O’Ice Subtle Interference can both eat a bag of dicks.

Posted by RorSchach from Datsberg on 02/13/13 at 05:15 PM ET

I like Doc when he does play by play and he’s not encumbered by the current fad of constant interruption by some douche “expert” yapping away.  Doc doing play by play by himself is a thing of beauty.

This is the vile standard of live sports tv broadcasting whether football, b-ball or hockey.  b-ball has some of the worst, and that’s saying a lot.  there are a lot of actually not very bright people doing sports broadcasts.

The only way the NBC broadcast team could suck worse would be if they hired Dick Vitale as the color man.
