Welcome To The Night Of The Living Dead

Updated below with Voox' annual DC contest.

As predicted...

...it's been a motherfucher of a day.  So we're starting way early, as I expect most of you are.

I'm in no mood for hijinks and I hope the Wings aren't either.

The Streak is the Thing right now.  Tomorrow we can worry about the next step that baby Jesus told us we should expect every season.  But tonite?

Tonite, it's all about 22.  

No other team in this damn league can lay current claim to the success of this organ-I-zation.  No other team can claim a fan base as rabid as you are, and I'll put ours--with our transplants and our Yoopers and our downriver puck bunnies--up against anyone's, Toronto and Montreal included.  

The streak continues tonite because it must.  The streak continues because every other team wants it to end, all other fans need it to end, every media member except ours (minus Drew Sharp and Pat Caputo) has the story already written and are just waiting to hit send.

Screw this league, this charade orchestrated by a shrew of a fraud commissioner.  Screw you, the fans of every other team. And I mean EVERY other team.  Detroit has carried this league.  The Red Wings have filled your warm-weather arenas and you can kiss all that revenue goodbye starting next October...finally.  

You pray for our demise but you can all suck it because this display of sustained superior performance continues tonite.

Extend The Streak, Wings. Just. Get. In.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  All aboard. 

WAIT...DON'T LEAVE  YET.  This just in from Voox...

Playoff traditions are widespread, so let's get the word out again about our own playoff tradition.

The annual "Pierre McGuire is a Douche Canoe Ticket Contest" is back.  Get a sign on TV behind Pierre McGuire's head saying Pierre is a Douche Canoe and win tickets to a Maple Leafs regular season home game of your choice next year.

To ensure you get credit for this incredible public service, email douchecanoe.contest@gmail.com in advance so I can award the tickets to you once successful.  All emails will be strictly confidential, good luck to all.

Wow.  I can’t believe Z got that goal.  I need to see the replay again.  Anyway, I’ll take it.

Great first 20.  Keep it up, boys!

Just win.

from the main page / TMR:

Red Wings will lose Jim Nill to Dallas

as Mandingo pointed out, weird timing ...

Totally related to nothing but the Big Boy commercial that was just on.

Ya’ll, if you haven’t tried a Super Big Boy with bacon and a fried egg on it… man.  That’s something.  Respect to any place that lets you put a fried egg on a burger.

Agreed, and the Stars fans wearing seat covers it looks like.

No shit, they need to get a license first.  Bag it and tag it.

Had something like this at Red Robin once.  Have put a fried egg on every burger since.  Pure genius.

Weirder from the DAL side honestly.  If I’m one of the 7 Stars fans left how furious am I that tonight the word comes out that my team is poaching an assistant GM from hated DET to become our actual real GM?

No ill feeling to Nill from me by the way.  Good on him if it’s true.  He deserves a shot somewhere and probably not going to get it here in DET.

So, who then becomes Holland’s heir?

I bring Five Guys burgers home, and add the fried egg. Cholesterol medication let’s you do shit like that.

Place in town here called American Kitchen has a 50/50 burger (50% burger, 50% bacon) with provolone and a fried egg on top.  It comes with a coupon for half off a quadruple bypass.
