Abel to Yzerman

Welcome Back

Welcome back! Apparently we haven't had enough to completely deter us from watching games. I don't know how much longer this insanity can or will continue. Anyone can see all this losing is having a totally negative impact on the players, and, to be honest, the Wings don't exactly have an excess of talent, but at least make it look like you're trying. As a fan I understand what a rebuild is, and I know full well it does not include fan torture. And yes, we can turn the game off any time we choose. But still....

It's a Live Blog!

If things have “gone south” by 8:00, I’d suggest Pretty Woman on Bravo. At least it has a happy ending. grin

Evening to all and thank you once again for joining in. It’s hard to watch this team, but, Mickey Redmond is in the house so that makes it tolerable and comical, for me at least.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

If the boys lose tonight, I’m ok with that, but when the capitals are on a PP..I want to see a wing stuck to ovechkin like glue. Do not let him stand alone and fire away…make someone else score.

The hockey equivalent of the infield shift in baseball. Who will be the first team to have the courage to employ this strategy ..???

Didn’t give up a shortie on the PP.  Seems like a win.

Wow! Your right. It’s like the opposite white out in Winnipeg, except it’s a blackout (seats) in Detroit..

I’m guessing they expected a slightly better turnout for a holiday Saturday night…

I’ve been in Bugsy Watson’s Pizza Restaurant in Old Town Alexandria, VA, a few times, located at the east end of King St just a few yards from the Potomac.  Been a long time, after a Red Wings game.

Was always going to be a toss up between him and Gudas as far as who brought the stupid first.  Wilson wins this time.

OK intermission gonna stuff half of this turkey carcass into the discount InstaPot, maybe get some concentrated broth for turkey noodle soup next week, and the next month or two.

Yeah Kate the roasting pan with rack worked great, the large turkey cavity held a lot of stuffing too.  Thanks for asking.  I’m going to roast another one tomorree to take to my daughter’s house with some potatos and squash and stuffing and another pumpkin pie.  I think I may ciphon off a couple of pieces of that pie for myself lol.

I don’t know what Stevie is thinking with E52 down to GR and Bowey staying here like Dawg said. Must be something brewing that we’re not privy aboot.

A lot of you will remember my daughter’s twins being born in Winston-Salem the day that the night the Babcock Wings gave up a late 3-1 lead vs TB in G5 or G6 after Glendening went off with a cut or something, then lost in the first 2 minutes of OT.  This is them today at 4.5 with their ginger 18 month old brother, and their dad.

Posting this also kept me from getting my hands covered in turkey grease for a few minutes.
