Underdogs? More Like Maidens With Wrought Iron Souls

Oh yes.  Yes, I did.  For the first time ever, since this blog was created back in 1978, we've welcomed Jim Morrison to a Live Blog.

Actually, that's a lie because we talked about our Killer on the Road.  And if that big bastard comes back during this playoff run, we might trot it out again.

But for now, we're together on a thin raft, floating down a beery river toward a land where hockey doesn't belong and where the Pharoa died.

We need at least one in ridiculous Anaheim.  Game 1 would be preferable, but we'll take 2 if its offered.  Give us both and it will be on whore-style. 

So here we go, into the breach once more.  We'll do nothing to influence a damn thing but what's done will influence us all to an extent that it's indecipherable to anyone but us and the pets we sacrifice.  Kiss your spouses on their lips.  Kiss your bosses on their asses.  Protect your children.  Warn your neighbors and ask baby Jesus to forgive us for the deals we make when we promise we'll exchange anything for just...one...goal.

It's a Live Blog, you bitches.  It's on.  Again.

There should be a primer for new members.  It would soaked in beer and barely legible, but at least it would be something.

The thing you should know about this place is that it is like a community.  Many of the people on here are friends in real life. 

I don’t know where I’m going with this.

There’s no telling who’s used it for a diaper last though so you may not want to be first in line for that….

Sketchy,  A2Y’s Glossary of Terms is as good a place to start as any.

There will be a quiz in the second intermission… if any of us can still read at that point.

Hell no. I think we paid something like $400 each for tickets that allowed us to almost touch the rafters. We didn’t care. Would have been worth ten times that amount.

The loudness of the crowd reverberated through you. It was a city and a fan base showing their love for one of the greatest sports figures to ever call Detroit home, and it was magic.

Dear 19,
Hell of a day (14 hours) at work and I have been looking forward to spending the evening with you all.  I do not have the energy to read through all your delightful posts, so I hope you can update me. I have tuned in and Minn-Chi are just 25% through the third (at least the Trio of Twits are in Chicago) so the Wings game will be JIP?

The playoff chalice has been filled.  The gauntlet has been thrown down, whore style.

I hope Corey Perry gets jail sexed with some banjo music to set the tone.

I’m glad the people that don’t know jack about hockey and think playoffs mean wear a jersey and drink beer are ignoring me. I’m here to talk to real fans. Fans that go to a game and their eyes are glued to the ice for 3 periods. Not spending half the time signalling for the beer man or in the trough.
