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.

Damn girlfriend, I need to pick her up so we watch the game (it’s on ESPN again) and she doesn’t answer the phone.

Yeah, bitches, we got lawyers AND hockey on ESPN.

Thanks, Chief.

Yes! A couple of hours back at the rent-a-casa before dinner and NBCSN is available in cable. Put ‘em away early, Wings! Dave strader? That is a good omen.

Jesus H Christmas, Jim Nill to Dallas?

Can we go one damn year without a team stealing someone from our staff?

Back home just in time.  Sun dipping below the horizon, tall trees casting an early darkness.  Doors are locked, foods in the fridge.  Pets are on hand for tossing outside for sacrifices.  The first Living Dead can be seen emerging.

2 points please sweet 8 pound Baby Jesus.  Do not let us fall and become one of the Walking Dead.

HAH!  DAL SBN dude Brandon Worley on Twitter poked the bear re: so many Wings fans in Dallas for the game.  Got destroyed in the replies by Wings fans.  Tried a lame comeback of his own, got destroyed again.  Everyone’s out in full force tonight.

I miss Strader-Redmond.  That’s the tandem of my youth.  I used to go to sleep thinking I could make out Strader’s voice downstairs saying “Yzerman with the shot HE SCOOORES!”

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y.
