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.

Could these clowns be more giddy every time something goes against the Wings?

Bud Light Platinum

You’re going to have to explain this one to me, I did an east-coast tour a year or so ago and last literally, half of a “light” beer, holy moley, how do you dudes cope? It was like pondwater.

Then I challenged some guy to hit the Jameson with me and I told him I was the Archduke of Tibblesbury.

With a case of Heineken you can score, so why would you trade that for the Detroit PP?

and there’s Emmerton making good plays against 3 people.

individually they are playing well.  it’s the collective brain farts that are killing them.

If this team ever plays Kindl or Quincy over Lashoff that’s just a bad decision. Also tootoo should be up on that line instead of abby. He actually has a knack for finding pucks in corners

he’s excellent in shootouts.

he’s TERRIBLE on in-game breakaways.

The NFL has challenges and we just saw a horrifically poorly officiated super bowl.  Why the hell would challenges help?  It’s just an invitation to mess up and have someone else fix your mistake.

I’m gonna go with enculturation on this one.  We just grow up with it… I guess.

Bud Light Platinum was a gimmick light(er) beer that Budweiser can up with last year.  It’s filtered through ass-cracks if I remember my 19 lore correctly.

Fool me once…
